Over the weekend, I received this text from a friend…
‘Caught a few scenes of Misery on TV. I swear Kathy Bates’ character totally reminds me of you!’
I paused for a moment because really I thought I read it wrong. I’m being compared to a Stephen King character how lovely. Oh wait…maybe not so good.
The text continues…
‘Not because she’s a murderous psychopath.’
Well that’s a relief. And to finish…
‘But because she is soooo detail oriented, even the smallest of things. Just sharing :)’
My first response was – I feel I should be offended yet…I’m not.
I’m currently updating my kitchen and bath and I think the workers would use the phrase “pain in the ass”, not “meticulous” as my friend later clarified. After a brief tirade with a reglazing worker, the young man nodded, smiled, and said “Yep, you’re a little OCD.” I like to say I’m ‘particular’.
End of the story, home renovations have put pause on my writing. But renovations are almost done and work on a new mystery is on the horizon. The question is … Should it be the fifth installment of The Nathan Miccoli Mystery Series OR a new stand alone mystery?
You tell me!
