I was in an emotionally volatile mood yesterday and I don't know why. If I had been drinking I would pin it on that.
Got into a fight with Linda over her watching a game show during the day, cut my ties with the CBIA, and had loud animated phone calls with Matt and Cameron where Linda poked her head in and wondered what I was doing. (Harmless, I was just being animated.)
I also wrote one of the best chapters I've ever written.
I felt those weird tingles all over my body that I get when something is really affecting me -- and Linda teared up. It was all done without being wordy, in fact by being somewhat oblique.
I think I'm getting better as a writer, some of it by getting feedback, but most of it by simply writing so much.
I'm Duncan McGeary, owner and/or operator for the last 33 years of Pegasus Books in Downtown Bend, Oregon. These days I'm writing books as well as selling them.
I'm the comic book guy. But even more so, I'm a book book guy. Books of all kinds. Big books and little books, children's and adult, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback and trade paperback and graphic novels. Books with more words than pictures and books with more pictures than words. They are all part of the book world to me, and I love being surrounded by them every day.
I also have a second blog: Pegasus Books, where I list the product coming in over the next week.
