For all the naysayers who said I wrote "Sincerely, John Hughes" because I was a wannabe writer looking to make it big, go ahead and have a field day. But when you're done, get back to me on how precisely I managed to manipulate a half million people to come and read the blog post, because I'd like to use that same power to convince Congress to support meaningful health care reform.
For all the truly supportive and wonderful people who came by to read the post and to take the time to share their own stories, thanks again. It was surprising and, as I have said before, overwhelming, but appreciated. I hope you'll keep coming by in the months to come as I put my ideas together. Maybe you can help me to think through what is worth sharing and what is just boring stuff about ME.
I don't know for sure this is going to happen, so don't head over to Amazon to pre-order just yet (presuming you have any interest). Someone needs to decide it's worth the paper it's printed on and there are a few folks from whom I would really like to have their blessing, but I'm ready to write.
I've started looking through my journals from the time and watching the movies John made in that period to get the wheels spinning.
First things first, I need to finish this proposal. I'll let you know how that goes.
