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...)

Keeping things simple
Hi George:

Your LA meetings sound exciting. Obviously we'll be thrilled if there are going to be Game of Thrones spin off series, or a Fevre Dream film, or whatever. Just like we'll be thrilled to see the ice and fire map book and world book, etc.

That said, maybe in part for your own sanity it's best to take things one at a time and prioritise! And maybe (tentative maybe, not wishing to offend) focus on son of kong and son of son of kong more than on all those monkeys.

After all, I suspect that in years to come the thing that will endure the most will be one of the best pieces of prose fiction ever written. It WILL be the ultimate kong, the sun around which the planets orbit – emphasis on the WILL because the way you write, it's inevitable.
