At the beginning of 2011, I made some pretty bold predictions about what would happen to me that* year. Good news: they all came true! I am right now on a beach in Costa Rica, trying desperately to remember what it was like to be regular.^ And I thought that, while I was looking at my blog anyway, trying to rediscover the journey that got me here, I'd say hello to all of my "like"-rs.
Now, some of you may not believe me to be "telling the truth." Some of you may say things like:
"If you got a two-book deal with Doubleday on June 2, 2011, then why didn't you blog about it?"
"If your first book is a New York Times bestseller, then why do you keep shamelessly pitching it as if the task of marketing it were solely on your own shoulders?"
"If your screenplay is Oscar-nominated, why haven't I ever heard of it?"
The answer to these questions is simple. You're living in "real person reality." I'm in Costa Rica. Ever been to Costa Rica? Costa Rica's a really nice place to be. It's so warm here. People ride bicycles. And the beaches have black sand and beautiful women. And there are jungles and ex-patriots. And famous people. Like me.

2012 will be even better. Watch out world!
Here I come.
* Okay, it's technically still 2011, but I'm having separation anxiety, and I need to let go slowly.
^ Not that kind of regular!
