It’s been a busy week.
My buddy and roomie, Jenn, has been in New Orleans all week doing a big social psych conference. I’ve spent much of my time being delayed due to all the filming going on downtown for the new Batman movie. I got to sit on a train for fifteen minutes while Batman got to direct traffic – they didn’t want our El train riding through their shot. Mostly, Batman being directly in downtown has meant some blocked-off streets, and a bunch of camera boom trucks, huge lighting trucks (which I mistook for firetrucks when I saw only their front end), trailors for crew (complete with aircon, of course), and a couple of “SWAT: City of Gotham Police” trucks.
It’s been a surreal week heading through downtown for my kickboxing classes, to say the least.
I tallied up a couple more agent rejection letters (“We’ll reject your manuscript without reading a page! Don’t you love publishing!!?”)and worked on some of the never-ending rewrites for book one, as I just can’t seem to leave it alone.
