Wow. Talk about a rush. Trying to get accustomed to associating the word “author” or words “published author” with my name…as opposed to all those authors I’ve been reading for decades (many decades, actually, but let’s not go there). I’m now including the title after my name in all correspondences. I’m printing “author” t-shirts. And I’m instructing all friends, family, associates, clients, casual acquaintances, perfect strangers to address me as “The Author” — all in the interest of establishing current accurate life status.
Ain’t it grand?
A dream come true. No lie. I recommend it to everyone. And just in case your still shaking your head, I was just kidding about the title and the tees and the instructions. Not to say that they’re all badideas…just a bit premature, perhaps. I should probably wait until my second book gets published before I take such steps. Ya think?
I know. I know. But seriously folks, this new development does require some getting used to. Now I have to find another ultimate, all-encompassing, wet-my-pants-with-glee achievement to shoot for. Won’t be difficult. Next stop…COLEMAN, THE MOVIE.
