Slow Starter

Posted Wed, 04/25/12

I was up at four o'clock this morning, fully intending to take advantage of the quiet time to write. However, I made the mistake of flipping on the TV and getting involved in the last half of An Affair to Remember (1957) with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.

Never having seen the movie before, I soon became engrossed until the film was over. By then, I was also nodding off. The next thing I know, it's almost ten o'clock in the morning. What a way to start the day!

Trivia Note: Mum and I met Cary Grant once, as he was passing through the airport in Reno, Nevada in the mid-1970s. We were there to pick-up one of our arriving relatives when Mum spotted Grant with his daughter, who was just a child at the time. Of course Mum was star-struck, scared to approach Grant and ask him for his autograph - so she sent me to ask him instead. He politely refused my request for an autograph, saying it might start a "chain reaction" even though the terminal was fairly empty at the moment. Needless to say, I was not very impressed with him.

I'm off to have a bit of lunch, then its back into writing.

I recently gathered gobs of research material about Boston in regards to my upcoming but as-yet-unnamed trilogy writing as Deidre Dalton. Sorry, it's the only hint I can give for now…

I hope to provide more details before June, but little clues here and there will have to do in the meantime.
