With the latest draft of zee book. I am going to use the next few days to clean up typos and then send it off to my editor.

Yesterday was a great writing day. The gym didn't open until 7:00 a.m. (holiday hours) so I went on a walk instead. I wrote from 7:30-12:30 broke for lunch, then 1:30 to 4:30. It was fantastic to have a full day to do my thing.

I am feeling a little sluggish, one it's crazy hot and two I didn't go to the gym a couple of days last week. I felt like I was in a writing groove so I would get up at 4:30 a.m., skip the gym and get 4 hours of writing done before going to the office.

It will take a few weeks to receive notes on this draft so I will have time to work out again.

Had the weirdest dream last night. I was waiting in line at the post Rome. I don't remember if I was speaking Italian in the dream. Not sure what I was doing there.

T.K. in Ohio here: Well of course you were speaking the language in your dream!!! And why wouldn't you be? You were living in your beloved land and you were @ the post office shipping your
'finito' copy of your book back over here to the States to your editor! Why else would one be at the post office in Rome??? (LOL!!!!!!!)

Gyms here open about 9-10am. Can you believe it? My sister (London) goes to the gym before work, but here there's no doing that unless you're on a late shift.

Congrats on completing the latest draft of your book!

I've been forcing myself to go to the gym, but tonight I'm not sure - it was 108 degrees last I checked.

I seriously hope you weren't at the Trastevere post office near Piazza Belli. That place is a nightmare! Well, really, let's be honest here, what Italian post office isn't? I hope you didn't wake up in a cold sweat.

Next time I hope you dream about big bowls of pasta, yummy gelato and sexy Italian men. ;-) Much better, no?

t.k. - that is a very good point. :)

delina - When I move to Rome, I am going to have to run outside instead. I heard the gyms open "late" there as well.

kathy - thanks. was that hot where your are? that is crazy.

shelley - ha. I guess I should have said it was a nightmare. re: pasta, gelato and men, those are a few of my favorite things. :)

Ha. Confirmation. Suspected you were a writer. 'Cause of where you were hanging out, of course.
