~~ Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project —published, in progress, for your cat — whatever. ~~
From a sequel to a novel from 2015 that is still being rewritten:
I’ve never liked these “meet and greet” events. Don’t get me wrong, I love interacting with my fans–I’m a total attention-whore normally–but there’s nothing fun about sitting for hours until your ass is numb while your hand cramps from signing hundreds of autographs, your brain turns to mush from answering the same questions, and you kind of go deaf from all of the screaming girls. And no matter how much your hand hurts or how numb your ass is, you just keep smiling and signing and telling the girls they have a pretty name and pretty eyes because it’s in your contract.
My partner in crime today is Blaine Cavanaugh. He’s on the rise thanks to the movie we just made, and he greets each fan enthusiastically even after three hours of this shit.
He’ll burn out before he’s eighteen.
