Today as always, is Norwegian Independence Day.
It's also my birthday and a first since I moved to Paris.
Today's horoscopes were not too encouraging...
Metro -Taureau: Des remous sont à prévoir dans voter foyer. Vous n'etes pas d'accord enter vous et chacon campe sur ses positions. Faintest le premiere pas pour débloquer la situation.
Google Translation- Taurus: The tub are expected to vote in home. You are not in agreement you enter and o'donnell sticking to his guns. Not the faintest first to break the deadlock.
Ok forget the horoscope.
The other day Patricia left a comment:
Please write a book!
We love your witty comments and hidden peeps of Paris. Illustrate it with your whimsical paintings. Please! And please include a whole chapter (if not more) on ONLY FABULOUS DESSERTS (OFD)
Well I've been working on a book for ages and ages...
It's been through many renditions and it's been a kind of torture.
Just this week literary agent Rachelle Gardner talked about bloggers being told they should write a book and maybe they should forgetaboutit?
Honestly I LOVE blogging daily for PB.
It's a creative challange that makes my day.
Plus what's not to love about the instant recognition you get back?
Creating a book is soooo different than blogging. It takes way more time and the format is completely different.
Solving that problem has stumped me for such a long time.
French Girl keeps asking me,
"When is ze book launch?"
Grrrrrr....she has no idea. Haha
Lord knows I've certainly collected enough macaron material to write several books over.
And even researched beyond Paris' perimeters.
Heck! It was the main reason I moved to Paris.
But not a whole lot has gotten done.
So I'm turning to you dear PB readers to give me a good kick in the pants regarding 'Ze Book' as a birthday presie.
Or maybe I should quit? Qui sait?
I've had a little breakthrough this week.
I do a lot of work while riding on the Metro and in the pool.
Let me know what you think svp.
