I never feel like I'm ready.
Today, I am flying up to San Francisco for a few days.
I will be at Books Inc. on Van Ness in Opera Plaza (take the California Street Cable Car to Van Ness and go that way).
At 7:00 p.m.
With L.K. Madigan, Allen Zadoff, Barry Lyga, and Sara Zarr.
Yes, they are real writers, who, for whatever reasons, are likely obligated to fulfill some probation-related community service and appear in public with a moron.
My friend, Yvonne, said something last night about me "reading." And I'm, like, holy shit! I have to read???
So I stayed up.
Worrying about what I would read.
Now I have some stuff.
Stuff from in the path of falling objects... surprise stuff, too.
That, and a fistful of No-Doz.
