I must get going so as to give you ANOTHER book by spring of 2016 or so.

p.s. Let me know if you want to set up a Skype interview with me to answer student questions, etc. I’ve been doing this recently with my students & the authors of the books I assign when possible, and I’ve done this as a guest author for another professor’s class recently, too. It’s fun! And it’s good to show our students that the books they read were written by people who made particular choices, etc. So contact me if you want to work something like this out.

Perhaps that will both make you feel better and motivate you to give me another to assign in the future…

Books can’t actually be written on deadline, per se, although setting them and trying can be a valuable tool. I think I promised to try the 4 a.m. thing *once* this fall as a kind of electronic support group thing, and I fell off that wagon too. I’m betting you did it so well that when the book is in print, we won’t be able to detect the “speed-up” parts from the rest in any coherent way. When my grades are in I’m going back to my plan: up at 7 a.m., at the keyboard before lunch sometime, and stay at it with some steady rythym. Since I’m “writing backward” (i.e. cutting back at the over-luxuriant text), this seems the best way to go, or maybe the only way to go.

Pat Loud and Christopher Makos published a book just last year called Lance Out Loud, and that video is a promotion for the book. She tells a hilarious story about Lance writing fan mail to Andy Warhol at age 12 or so & getting a call at 3 a.m. Pacific Time from the man himself.

You’re right that his self-awareness was incredible, and incredibly brave. You might also be interested in the movie made at the end of his life called Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family that aired on PBS.

Lance (not Loud): I toast in your general direction, sir. We’re going out for Beer & Pie (this is a real thing) later this afternoon.

Very fascinating dude. Anyone know if there is a written biography available?

I never heard of Loud before, but he seems like an amazingly fun person to be around from that interview. It is mind-boggling that he was so self-aware, eloquent, and hilarious at the age of 21.

I am hoisting a warm, “caramel”-flavored beverage in your direction, hoping that when the final tally is done, you’ll be so much closer to votre deuxième livre.

We do seem to have it easier, although brevity and precision in writing are skills some have difficulty with.

In our families, two sets of kids and two sets of grandkids, the LBGT world comes naturally in kids and close friends. All the weddings we attended in the last five years were gay wedding including two Christian long term friends married by a bisexual rabbi. (Only in America) We both, independently, got there out of genuine liberal conviction. Sadly, the closet is still full and quite crowded.
