Yay for Megan!

They're working her pretty hard though. Two days to get there, three days there, two days back. She will never remember it.

Megan is becoming a world-renown writer! Fame!

She is worn out though. With the TV series, her own series in development, a novel coming out in the spring, traveling to promote these, writing introductions to books like IN A LONELY PLACE and reviews for various publications, doing events in New York practically every few weeks, it leaves no time for a personal life. It's a tough life.
No vacation in seven years.

I am sure teaching, doing scholarship, and writing and going to conf. leaves you pretty busy too.
