You know what’s exciting? Me either, I was actually fishing for suggestions. Its been awhile since I lasted posted and trust me the initial withdraws were pretty vicious. I’m stuck in pretty much the same dilemma i’ve been in: lack of time. Either i’m at work in the hospital or busy trying to build my new business. I’ve said it time and time again: i’m destined to be my own boss.
So given the opportunity to be able to open up the manuscript I wrote earlier this year, I found myself not wanting too. Sadly, I barely recall the names of my characters that I loved so dearly for nearly a year. It’s difficult to edit something that has been displaced from your brain. The only real way I can tackle this is to read it again and then edit. Damn, the thought was just exhausting, especially considering that I may not really get the time to read it all the way through. It’s like planning for a trip you’ll never go on.
Here I am again. Staring blankly at a computer screen, realizing I need to locate my long lost reading glasses, and hoping I can find the strength to open a file titled, “Life by Chance.” Heck, the cover has been the center of several art contests so the name is being put out there…at least in the world of art. Maybe I can muster up the strength to get this one out, though mustering up the finances is another issue. One problem at a time.
Signing off for now. I’m going to hit that file button and see where it leads me…right after a hot fudge sundae.

Hello fellow bloggers, especially those in Seattle, WA. After several years of being cooped up with three hours of my home I am finally taking a wonderful weekend trip to Seattle. It isn’t all fun and R&R though. I am headed out with Glenn to go to an It Works! convention. (For those catching up, I have taken to selling body wraps and health supplements as a means to pad my income and pay for editing).
We fly in early Thursday and pretty much have the day to ourselves to roam about freely. We aren’t renting a car so this will be interesting. Either we learn to ride the rails, the bus, or we walk everywhere. I’ve been told that everything is relatively local to us, so that is a bonus.
Friday we have convention late the evening, so we will find ourselves some mischief during the day. Saturday is all day convention, then Sunday morning we fly home. So this is a double trip for me: I look forward to convention and getting energized and ready to wrap the world into skinniness, but I’m also excited to tote my book around the city and leave it at random places to be found. I’m thinking a scavenger hunt is in order. Either way, it’s a tax write off!!!! Weeeeee!
If you’re in the downtown/convention center area let me know. Maybe we can grab some tea or you can suggest some places we must go to. We are really just winging it and hoping we don’t get lost. Pics to follow.
