Drove up to London yesterday and will be driving back to Wiltshire later. It will be a busy non-writing day overall. It’s shaping up as the sort of one I’m always of seriously two minds about, because a non-writing day is, fundamentally, a non-productive day in any novelist’s life.
But if you drop by regularly, you know I like if at all possible to find a few moments to post something every day. I like this site to be “alive,” and, as you also may know, sort of like a “daily journal”. In that sense, I feel this is worth sharing.
My post yesterday pointing out polar opposite positions – that the U.S. State Department urges Americans in the strongest possible terms NOT to set even a foot anywhere in Lebanon because it’s too dangerous, while American traveling chef Anthony Bourdain recently visited Beirut for CNN and urges “EVERYONE” to go there….
….drew good-natured Twitter laughter from Clauda Tanios, of Beirut’s Annahar newspaper:
Have a good Thursday, wherever you are in the world.
And if you happen to be partying, I’m sure you’re enjoying yourself. You probably don’t need my encouragement. 🙂
