Strange Chicken

In the three months since arriving home after a fifty-five day cycling adventure, I regret to report that nothing has moved forward in my book projects.
Something inside is afraid to start, even though most of the texts are written. Yes, plural texts.
One will be: “Lace Border Patrol: Women Riding In A Sport Presumed To Be Masculine
And you all know the other one: “Fabulous Me: Confessions of the Unmitigated Gal”.

Putting all those words, files, versions and (gasp) bits of illustration together…so daunting.

So I’ll just grab a great shot from someone called  “Collectvelo”. The kind of simple photo that makes you look, and look again, and mildly yearn for an ancient 1910 “Charrier” bicycle…. while clucking about my paltry efforts  concerning what doesn’t exist yet, except in my fertile mind.

Psycho chicken!

  1. Sigh, … Don’t make me come out there Jacquie!
    Love the head badge. Grant Petersen would appreciate it also.

  2. Another Paul says go for it Jacquie! “Writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.” Note she did not say “shorts” and “saddle” … which granted is the eternal quandary.

  3. You can write this book ! Just write it.
