|Weekly Note #52
Okay, so this isn't exactly Weekly Note #52, but that's probably a really good thing. Why?
Because the Weekly Notes Collection ended up being a whopping 380 pages! And that's single spaced.
It's a super fast read, but can you imagine 52 Weekly Notes in a row?
It would be... what... a textbook? Yeah.
Anyhow, Weekly Note #52 refers to the number of weeks it's been since November of last year. That's right. On this Monday last year we were just wrapping up #4: Scary Scary Scary and heading into #5: US Open 'Z'DC?
A whole year.
And may I just say? WHAT a difference a year makes. Here is what I wrote for my greeting exactly one year ago today:
What a week. WHAT A WEEK! Ever had those days when you've been hit with "ick," "ew," "yuck," "you've gotta be kidding," and just plain "ugly" from a variety of levels and you just never saw any of it coming? Well. I just had six of those days in a row. And NONE of the lunacy came as a result of my Halloween Note... who would've thought?
But nothing could get in my way for this week's edition..."
It went on from there. And man, do I ever remember that week. Day 1: Car broken into, Day 2: First of the online public attacks begin, Day 3: kitchen plumbing explodes, Day 4: new online attacks start, Day 5: dryer dies... you get the picture. Blech.
And now, on the One Year Anniversary of #5: US Open 'Z'DC? I get to announce that my Weekly Notes Collection is finally here!
Yes, I know I said it's name would be "Clean and Confidential," but look up there... aaaaallllll the way up there, at the top of this Note. See that header? What does it say...
"Telling the Truth....
Setting Dancers Free...
One Word at a Time..."
Yeah. I didn't catch that. Not even after Telling the Truth was released. Didn't catch that at all.
When it was finally pointed out... well... I felt pretty silly. It had been right underneath my nose the whole time. The titles for the series of WCS books. Wow. What happens if I write a fourth? Uh oh. Better not!
Anyhow, I promptly re-submitted the new title: Setting Dancers Free: The Weekly Notes that Rocked West Coast Swing.
And I love it... but it's huge!!! Yet I'm using it almost every day as a reference. It's incredibly well put together. As I say in the Afterword, I can't believe I wrote that much that fast... but I bet you didn't think you read that much that fast either!
As I also say in the book, these are the original Notes: not the edited ones I publicly released (only three are still available to the public, in their edited formats, by the way).
