Hello Friday: Time, Time, Time…

Thanks to the beauty of having a large family that has no problem with showing up to a book event shockingly late, I ended up giving my 20 minute reading speech not once but twice, last night.

At first I was furious that the majority of my family wasn’t there when I started my speech, and I think it actually seeped into the original reading. But by the end of the night, I was grateful that my family showed up super-late and then had the nerve to demand that I do the speech all over again, because it taught me an important lesson about adapting. The second speech also went so well that it reminded me that sometimes things don’t go the way you expected them to. Sometimes they go even better.

I’ll carry the memory of that night with me forever and it will always make me smile.

Next up, I’ll be in Dallas next Thursday for a 7pm Book event at Legacy Books. Hope to see you there if you live in the area, though seriously, get there on time.
