And I can't sleep. This happens a lot when I'm touring. I get done with my shows around midnight and then I have a hard time shutting off my brain and getting rest. In addition, just as I turned off the bedside lamp, I started panicking about my new book, which comes out in about three months. Releasing a book is such a scary endeavor because you work so hard on something in secret for so long and then one day it's out there and you feel so vulnerable. Other things I do - TV, movies, stand-up - all give you some sense of whether or not they are working before they go wide. Not so with books. With books, you might have a few readers, generally friends, who love you and so tell you all the things you wish to hear and maybe they give you overly generous blurbs for the book and maybe you start to think it's actually pretty good. But you don't know. Your editor tells you it's good and your publicist and the other people whose livelihoods depend to a certain degree on it being good. But you don't know. And you won't know until it's out there. Usually you have six months to a year from the time you first turn it in until the time it's on the bookshelves. That's a long time to stew about something that's out of your hands. So yeah, my new book comes out in about three months and it's now 3:19 and I can't sleep.
