Heh heh. Talk about the book, tighten the upper lip and don't talk about the book . . .
Well, I'm only human. And people out there have said they have obtained the book and that they were set to read it over the weekend. So I know eyes have fallen on pages.
The rules say shut up. But I never had any part in making those rules, while shutting up has never been my strong suit.
I ran D&D on Saturday. Expectations were high, emotions were high, stress was high - and there was some drama. Ah well. Was to be expected. People are pressure cookers and four months is a lot of pressure. But the running was good and I left three players trapped on a narrow, enclosed beach, at night, with a giant turtle climbing out of the sea. In the dark, they weren't sure what it was at first . . . their imaginations rose to the occasion. Then they found it was a 'turtle' of unknown type and they felt relieved. Turtles are not scary.
I've been relaxing the last few days. I'm due to get my own books from the printer on Friday. Yes, I know now that the spine is 'upside down.' Too late for those books from the printer. Perhaps, one day, the reverse spine will be the proof that it's a first edition book. Fantasies. We all have our fantasies.
I'm a bit scatter-minded, so I'm going to just write this and go. Pages are turning and I swear I can hear them.
