It's so nice to be able to say that.

He just gave me a genius solution to the central problem of my memoir. At least I hope it's really a genius solution and the editor doesn't hate it, but I think it's a great idea, and one which allows me to put in some material that it was killing me not to use, but which I couldn't figure out how to include.

I think for now I should be coy about exactly what I'm doing, but I think it'll be really fun to try it.

Also, I'm sending him my fantasy novel, which is now available.

Also, he likes the idea which I settled on for my next non-fiction book, which is to write about my personal journey tracking my martial art across the world and back in time, from America to Japan to Okinawa to China to India. So I'm going to write up a sort of mini-proposal for that and include, as a sample of the sort of story it might contain, the tale of the Kerala rickshaw driver who moonlighted as a karate instructor and our search for the elusive rice dumpling called puttu.
