Why I will never finish another manuscript, let alone have another book published #457 by Tracy Crisp | Oct 28, 2010 | writing | 5 comments Nothing like a pile of unfolded laundry to ruin the Zen-like ambience of your study. 5 Comments Cristy on October 29, 2010 at 12:23 am My study is also where we dry laundry. Phd never going to be finished… Reply Mindy on October 29, 2010 at 5:07 am That’s why I’m often late for work. I know, the absurdity of being late to a paid occupation so that I can do unpaid work that only gets noticed if it’s not done… Reply fifi on October 29, 2010 at 5:48 am My whole house is an expo of not-done chores. But this is really good: I finally thought to get The Book at the same moment I had in my possession a credit card with actual CREDIT on it. So off I went as extremely pleased to see your novel surrounded by Helen Garner, Eleanor Dark, David Malouf, Kate Grenville, Elizabeth Jolley, and so on. It just looked very impressive, and now I am highly excited to receive it. To celebrate, I am not folding the laundry. Hurrah!
