Trying to Get Organized

It’s been a while since I posted a Dress I Can’t Possess. Here’s one that’s in a window across the street. I wouldn’t have any place to wear this and I don’t think this would look good on me, but it’s very pretty to look at.

I’ve been going crazy consolidating and cleaning up all my email lists. Some of you may have even gotten email from me about it. It’s a lot of work, but I’m glad I’m doing it. Ugh, though.

I have to update my blogs for The Restless Sleep and Unbelievable, but I’m burnt out now. If I try to do it now I’ll just do a bad, half-ass job.

This wonderful coincidence just happened though. I was going through all the answers to the poll question on my main website (Do you believe in ghosts?), and one person I answered emailed me just now to tell me that she is going to be the one translating my book Unbelievable for the Japanese edition. I don’t know if I posted about this yet, but I recently got an offer from Kinokuniya Shoten and I accepted. Anyway, she hadn’t even seen what I had emailed her yet when she emailed me.

I have been so happy about this. I’ve been in love with Japan from afar ever since high school. My father and my brother have been there many times for business, but I haven’t gotten there yet myself. And having this book come out there won’t change that either, but still. My words get to go there even though I can’t!

One thought on “Trying to Get Organized

  1. I’ve been burned out on blogging lately myself, so I can relate on so many levels. Why post mediocre work just to give an update?

    And congrats! Now you’re even MORE international!
