I finished writing MR. MONK GOES TO THE FIREHOUSE and sent it off to the publisher, the studio, and the showrunner on Friday…ten days before my deadline. You can read it in January. As much as I enjoyed writing that book (and proving to myself I could write a book that fast), it’s going to be very nice to have a free weekend to do whatever I want, which will be…
…playing with my INport, a device that allows me to transfer my old LPs and cassette tapes to .wav and .mp3 files.
…finishing Meg Wolitzer’s novel THE POSITION.
… getting hamburgers and shakes at The Habit with my daughter and going swimming.
…cleaning up my office, organizing my desk and paying bills.
…catching up on the TV shows I recorded on Tivo last week in my mad rush to finish the book.
…starting to plot MONK #2, which is due in early September and will be published in July 2006.
