I don’t know how else to say this.
I’ve been working on a big project.
It’s actually a book…
Over the past six months, every spare moment of my time was devoted to writing. One of my friends asked, “How is that humanly possible with a full-time job, a toddler, and a daily blog?”
It wasn’t easy, but I loved writing.
Well, I worked seven days a week; I worked through the holidays. And, luckily, I didn’t suffer from writer’s block. How could I? There is so much to tell. So much to reveal…
Aside from talking about the school lunches and the kids, how I survived the year and more about Mrs. Q, there is a guide for school lunch reform that is uniquely my own. The book is a story about one person— me — doing something because I cared enough to take action. And then, I give you some tips on what you can do in your community.
Every time I read a few pages, I chuckle. Although I take this issue very seriously, I used humor to tell my story. Food can be funny, especially school lunch food!
I don’t have all the details yet, but the book scheduled to be published later this year by Chronicle Books
. This whole thing came as a happy surprise, but it is a logical continuation of the blog’s campaign to raise awareness about school lunch.
Oh yeah, and then I will come out, too…
Thank you so much for what you have contributed to the blog project. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be where I am today if you hadn’t helped me along, guiding me with comments and teaching me with emails. I’m grateful that we all care about the food kids eat at school and I hope that my book contributes in a meaningful way.
Now I’m going to go find a nice paper bag and use it to breathe.
