It has been a month since I wrote a plum bean. A strange wonderful crazy month. I have written, gotten stuck and then written again. I am about to move house which unravels writing fairly conclusively for a few days. Somehow the act of getting all my belongings into plastic boxes and from one flat to another is utterly outfoxing me.
Nell received a wonderful treat today. Natalie, also known as Coffee and a Book Chick wrote a lovely review. I was thrilled. She said that Nell had prompted her to spend hours on the internet noodling around 17th century theatre. How absolutely marvellous that she had that reaction. I love the Restoration and so often it gets overshadowed by the grisly can't turn away from the beheading train wreck of the Tudors. I understand that. Kings bumping off brilliant wives and changing the course of religion is compelling stuff. So it is especially wonderful when the Restoration gets discovered and explored.
So, tonight is the Manic Mommies Book Club interview. I am absurdly worried about getting the access codes right and actually finding the interview. Having had relatively little experience in a normal job (working on the Vagina Monologues was brilliantly, wonderfully abnormal--not everyone has vagina puppets on their desk) I have some anxiety around fax machines and conference calling. Absurd, I know but there it is. Wish me luck!
