Progress Report #115


I finished Street Song yesterday—a huge relief for my poor weary skull. There’s still work to do, though. If I were to compare Street Song to a head of lettuce, I’ve grown and then picked the head. Now I manicure it—pull off a few of the outer, funky leaves—and find a buyer. In prosaic terms, I’m going to make some print on demand copies so that I can look at it as a real book, make a few minor changes, and then look for a publisher. But for the next few days I’m going to do whatever I feel like doing—something I haven’t really done in more than 12 years.

    Shouldn’t we gather and carry you through the streets singing something appropriate? The parrots can join us, flying in formation, showering you with blossoms and squawking in a festive manner.

    Well done!

  2. Andrew Says:

    Congratulations Mark!

    What an enormous relief for you to finally arrive at this step in the process. Go enjoy your rest for a while, knowing that we will still be here, waiting patiently!

    Good luck with it. If you can give it some time before your edit, it’ll help to see it through fresh eyes.

  5. Linda Says:

    Good News, Yes! I have been checking in and waiting perhaps a decade… Good work. Bet there are many like me. You have a ready audience.

  6. Frank Says:

    Congrats, Mark. I’ll be one of your first buyers once it gets into print.

      Thank you, Frank. I’ll be getting the word out as to when here–among other places.

    Hi Mark: Congrats from Gerry and me in Seattle, which is going through the paradoxical rise in both economy and homelessness. If you have a synopsis of this work I could forward to a couple of publishers. Best, Susan K. Godfrey, Mondoverdo Communications

    More than 12 years? It sure seems a LOT longer than that! Like…four and a half or so.
