Cleveland versus Connecticut
Cleveland wins. My writing friends know I'm trying to edit a final pass on my MS before it goes to Super Agent X. I need to give him the version that makes him get on one knee, whip out a rock and say "Marry me, Kimberly and we'll honeymoon on the NYT best seller's list."
So why the Cleveland Connection? (That's a nod to Les Roberts, mystery writer from Cleveland, whose "Milan Javovich series is a favorite of mine.) Because Clevelanders are not snow 'fraidy cats! They trudge to school in blizzards and love it. We had 4 inches of snow yesterday in the Nutmeg State and no school. Today? No snow that I can see, maybe slick roads? 90 minute delay. That's 90 minutes I am not editing. After last week's winter break - give me a break!!
I lived in Cleveland twice. Four years there. Off to Bucks County for four years. Then back to Cleveland for six years. The got snowballs there. God love 'em.
