She's also worried about the "mental state of normals." Another artist, after learning about the hospitalization, volunteered to take over the work for the upcoming Hannah & Delores books. Then, he asked for more money this week. Crazy lady understands that it is hard to be a "working artist"-- she is, after all, a "working writer" and adheres to a strict budget-- but re-negotiation, and holding artwork hostage, is not cool. She doesn't understand why this new artist couldn't asked for more money two months ago, when he offered to help. She expects honesty & integrity from others. Unethical and sleezy behavior always reminds crazy lady of the time she spent working for the Bank.
So, crazy lady has to find (yet another) artist to finish the work on her dragon & slayer books. Plus, she has to finish writing another book, prepare for the Rhode Island Film Festival, and complete re-writes on her second screenplay by the end of August. Deadlines, deadlines...it means that crazy lady spends less time playing chase, and more time at the computer. Do you see the top of her head in the photo?
