After 3 hours of sleep, I'm back at Hour 20 (3:00am)! Don't know for how long...after all, I do need to be in top form to hit the road at 8am for my 2 hour drive to Sarasota. But I figure, do a post, read a little more, sleep a little more, see where it takes me.
There are a couple of mini challenges going on out there that I will attempt. The first is "Go INDIE", where we need to extol the virtues of our favorite independent bookstore. Sad story, that. In Orlando, FL, we only had one indie store called Urban Think, and they have recently closed their doors. They were an amazing little store, downtown, walkable from my kids' school. But as many indie stores do these days, they just couldn't make ends meet. How can a community of over a million people not be able to support an indie store? Are we that lacking of culture? Or are we just addicted to Barnes & Noble and Borders?
The other mini challenge is called Hungry for More, where we are to discuss the foods that are keeping us awake. Well, as you know, I haven't been awake. No food (not even Ben & Jerry's) was working. Right now, I'm waffling between tater tots and whole coffee beans. The tater tots might just be too much work.
I'm going to see if I can get any closer to finishing my book before I crash again. Good luck to the rest of you!
