Labor Day Weekend

This painting is called Sitting on the Fence, it’s by Jim Glover and the photograph does not do it justice. It was cold today and rainy, a reminder that winter’s on its way.

It’s labor day weekend and I’m doing my best not to labor. Long weekends are when you find out what a work-a-holic you really are. Sandra’s manuscript arrived this morning, so I had to start on it at least. Did some updating on my website, answered e-mail, attempted to clean something and then decided it was entirely too cold and miserable to be that motivated so I spent the rest of the day reading a book. Interesting little mystery thriller called The Death Artist. If you like these kinds of books, its worth reading.

One thing I must do this weekend is prepare a couple of speechs. I’m speaking to artists next week and business women the week after that. The artists are easy, the women – not so much. I’m still trying to get my head wrapped around why they want to hear from me. I write like a talk most of the time, if you’re reading this… that is me. Does this sound like a person who could teach a professional business woman anything? Well, I have a plan. I think I’ll talk to them about mentorship and their responsibility to take on a teenage girl if for nothing else than to keep another generation from turning out like me! Living in a small town, people really know me and don’t judge the quality of my work or my ability to get things done by how I’m dressed or whether I’m wearing make-up or not. When I need to, I can look professional… it’s an act, but hey, we do what we must.

    Oh winter is coming up and I so hate travelling to the States during that time but I have no choice. I’ll be in States in November. The great thing is I’ll be there only for a week and then it’s back in warm, sunny JA.

    Coming in for Thanksgiving? It will be easier to take since you only have to suffer for a week, and beautiful JA is the reward if you survive!

    Oh, do share your speeches, even parts, when you’re done 🙂

    Okay GG, I will share the speeches since you asked… If nothing else, we’ll all have a good laugh over them!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
