I finished Xmas Carol again

I just finished yet another edit of Xmas Carol. It might be perfect now but it's too early to say. Give me a day or two and I'll get back to you.

One weird thing about writing a novel is that if you write about a real thing, the circumstances of that real thing can change, leaving your book out in the cold. For instance, in Xmas Carol I mention the "new World Trade Center".

So I was horrified to see the news yesterday about that idiot Silverstein saying that his "tower" is only going to be seven stories instead of 80 or so. I thought, "Is that the tower in my story?!" After reading more about it, I don't think it is. There will still be a huge tower. Probably, maybe.

There'd better be, because it's in my book. You hear me, world?

Surely I'll publish Xmas Carol within weeks. Surely. Hang on.

I just put a bet down in Vegas that the Cubs will win the World Series before you publish Xmas Carol. rofl

I'm not liking the changes taking place in Wrigleyville, but I'm sure I will like the changes taking place in XC.

It's almost that time, Annie. Unbelievably, March 2nd is the first day of spring training. That's a little over a month! Go Cubs (and Mets and Red Sox)!
