Various Goodnesses

This is going to drive me crazy–The Literary Type is searching for a cover image for their “On the Road” issue, which is about travel and transit of all kinds, which is a much beloved them of mine (see last book, as well as the story of mine that’s actually in the “On the Road” issue). But I can’t come up with an image for them–why? Maybe you can come up with an image and solve the problem for us all…?

The National Post ran a piece We’ve Read Your Book, Now What? this weekend, about what authors would recommend people read *after* our own books. Lots of good ideas, including one from me!

I am going to see The New Pornographers in five hours. Well, that’s when the openers come on–TNP will I guess be later. I haven’t been to a concert in a couple years and I sort of forget how they work. But I’m still pretty sure I’m going to like it.

I feel less lousy on less caffeine today. The goal here, after all, is not to eradicate a nice thing from my life, but simply not to be dependent on it. And varying the time and amount of caffeine I consume is *like* not being dependent–isn’t it?

    Do you mean you need an image or an idea for an image?

  • Scott Watson says:

    If you are rationalizing your consumption that might indicate dependence :)

    They need an actual image–if you go to the link, there’s specific specs that they can work with. Do you have something in mind???

    Well I thought that you could have two people riding in the back of a car, one dressed ultramodern with a ipad/ear buds on/sunglasses etc. and the other one dressed 19th century (or maybe mid 20th century) with a typewriter and a pencil. Two people doing travel writing while traveling.
    Just a thought.
    Oh and a monocle. :)
