Dear Margaret Atwood:
I recently noticed the travel schedule posted on your blog. And holy hannah, you’re busy. Plus, it’s only January! Imagine what other things might come up.
Perhaps you enjoy the travel and the events. To me, they sound like week after week of torture. If I were you, I’d start cultivating a reputation as an eccentric recluse. Only leave the house on Wednesdays and Sundays. Never appear in groups of more than three people… that sort of thing. I’m sure if you were strange enough you could get just as much attention, with none of the travel.
Just a thought… In the meantime, happy New Year and safe travels.
