Yesterday I spoke to my agent and reminded her that it was November. She said she’d call my editor today. Six more hours to go. Do I believe this will happen? No. And even if it does that might not mean my editor is waiting for the call so he can offer a deal. Or the deal will be so hideous I’ll have to work at the library. I guess there could be worse places here to work. Now that I think about it, the library is looking good.
