reading the post below, i realized i haven't been that pensive in public in a long time.
anyway, a revelation came to me in the shower (don't our best ideas usually come in the shower?) about why getting a book on Kindle and Nook matters, and why piddly things like cover problems matter.
the first is a celebration. if we didn't have celebrations (even small ones like a book finally being in digital format after 3 years of thinking about it), life would be unbearable. can you imagine?
actually, i hope you can't. i hope your life isn't so bad that you never have anything to celebrate. (but on the chance that even one of you has a life like that, please email me at michelledgregory at gmail dot com so i can give you a listening ear.)
the second can be remind me to be grateful that my life isn't a whole lot worse. a cover glitch is not the biggest deal in the world -- just a nuisance. at least i haven't been in a car accident for over 15 years and my kids are healthy and my husband loves me. i have a lot to be grateful for.
and on that other thing, the writing thing...writing matters to me because if i didn't have that, something inside me would curl up and die. dramatic, i know, but the honest truth about me.
