Back Home

Got back from LA yesterday evening.

I had a great visit out there... well, aside from losing the Emmy (I am now 0-4 all time), but it IS an honor just to nominated, yadda yadda yadda. Some amazing meetings followed, with some amazing people, most of which I can't tell you about... yet. But maybe one day.

And it's always nice to be back in Santa Fe, with Parris, the cats, and the minions. And to escape the LA heat as well.

But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. There's just too damn much. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten. Or maybe to a hundred, depending on your scale.


There is no help for it, I suppose. Price of success, and all that. And I know, lots and lots of folks would love to have my problems. No one needs to tell me that.

Even so...

(Today's football games did not much help my mood either. Life is meaningingless and full of pain...)

I'm gonna add to the many suggestions...only because you are SO important to us all George RR Martin!! Of course you're stressed, that makes perfect sense. You have a LOT on your plate like, ALL the time and the pressure from every direction must be overwhelmingly demanding. YIKES!! OK with THAT said. I'd suggest getting a pool if you don't have one, install whatever creature comforts in your home that you've always wanted and while it's happening let the chaos be managed by the loving & devoted minions. Make sure at least one minion is extremely organized and helps you organize your time so you get at least 2 hours in your day relaxing, (preferably swimming), getting a message at least 2 times a week and have everything laid out for you in small piles in some sort sort of priority...keep the tasks as small bites as possible, they get chipped away that way and before you know it...they're all done!!!
Love you GRRM!!! You have to be a pretty special person to have created such an amazing world. Thank you!
here from your native neck of the woods...
