Burning Laundry

Saturday I paid the bills, and sent a contributor (at long last) his signed copy of my last book.
Monday I made an appointment for the car’s 57-month checkup and updated the contributors to my new book about the cancellation of the contract by the publisher.
Tuesday I got groceries, talked to an editor about a possible book project from about January to about May of next year. Also saw Beck with Flaming Lips at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland.
Today I took the car in for its checkup, talked to my agent about the cancellation negotation and five new book-deal leads of various likelihood and appeal.
Also, I finally called the gutter guys to come and do the annual clearing of our downspouts as the rainy season kicks in (once this Santa Ana thing blows over, I hope).
