My book review for Time.com has just been published.
I had a momentary crisis of confidence after I had completed writing the review and thought it sounded a bit too mumsy. So I procrastinated submitting it. Then I asked a friend of mine to edit it. But she went on holiday and forgot about it.
I finally worked up the confidence (after a few drinks) and just hit the send button. I figured I am mumsy. And this is a mumsy book.
With disappointment, I discovered the very next day that Lisa and her Work in Progress blog had just published someone else's review and I knew I would have to wait for mine to appear. I mean, Lisa would appear impossibly lazy to outsource her blogging to her readers 2 days in a row. And Lisa isn't lazy.
Alas, the day has finally arrived. And my blog has nothing witty or funny to show for it. Just the impending flooding of my home. This is a national disaster and a very real threat to my home but not exactly mesmerising reading for the blogosphere.
I need to get busy and write something worth reading!
