Finally

:banana:

After nearly 9 months of work, my book is completely finished. It will be ready for you on Tuesday.

I declare the nondescript cover design a success. During the final read in Starbucks over the course of three days, not a single person gave it a double take, unlike when I read this book.

Joseph Epstein:

Before I had first done so, writing a book seemed a fine, even grand thing. And so it still seems — except, truth to tell, it is a lot better to have written a book than to actually be writing one. Without attempting to overdo the drama of the difficulty of writing, to be in the middle of composing a book is almost always to feel oneself in a state of confusion, doubt and mental imprisonment, with an accompanying intense wish that one worked instead at bricklaying.

The first thing I did when I finished the book was eat a bowl of ice cream. The second thing I did was buy an air ticket to Quito, Ecuador. I leave August 7. :bigsmile:

what mr epstein said is not only true for writing a book but for anything in general. i write loads of short stories and sometimes half- way through them i just get so confused and realise that it’s completely different than i intended and now i have no idea how to end it. blah. i love writing, though.

congrats on finishing your book! so i guess you’re having another going away party? aw, we’ll miss you.

Beginning of August doesn’t leave much time for the going away party.

As a four letter word of indistinct grammatical purpose, I can clearly see your book title becoming the name of the next hot Dupont Circle eurolounge.

Congratulations! Always wanted to write a book….maybe one day I will. So now it’s off to South America. Hopefully you’ll continue to post. I’m sure the “game” will be even more interesting…

Love the look and the title…now you just have to get me a copy, autographed, so I can read it to my first born…like when he’s first born, and every night there after. That way he’ll be ready by the time he’s like 13 for a weekend in Vegas with his pops, Uncle Roosh, and Uncle Virgle.

Congratualations! Put me down for a signed copy too please. Nice to see someone complete a goal over an extended period of time. You got the ticket too. That’s what I’m talking about say what you do and do what you say. If you need some loot for an advertising campaign for “BANG” let me know.
