"We swim because we are too sexy for a sport that requires clothes."
This is my friend Jackie, the powerhouse flyer, who has talked me into swimming with her at the Provincial Swim Competition in London. I thought that was a fine idea back in January. Now it's less than two weeks away and I'm wishing I had remembered that I'm not very fast. Which is why I'm doing the 1500 metre this year. (as well as all the backstroke races) Slow and steady.
I need to remember that when I get anxious about the time it takes to revise a manuscript. I've just sent off, I think, the last big round of edits for Dogsled Dreams.
How does Stephen King whip out those novels so fast?
