Hi there! As you may have surmised, I’m hard at work even though Sunday is supposed to be my day off and it’s a holiday. But writers don’t get holidays, so … so much for that.
I just got off the phone with the awesome Meredith Cole, who has been kind enough to invite me to speak to the Sisters in Crime Chapter in Richmond, VA. Or actually the Gayton Library in Henrico, VA. Or somewhere.
Now … before my conversation with Meredith, I read the Washington Post Magazine as usual.
Here are some links that may interest you.
I also posted this about Lady Gaga.
Please click on the links to read the details
, because I can barely type this post.
And please “like” my series Facebook page.
And a big hello to Bob Ryan! *waving* OM-freaking-G! You’re following me? You are awesome! My husband is a BIG weather freak, and we’ve been watching your forecasts
forever and ever for years.
Now, Bob, I must admit I hate snow …
However, Sam McRae is originally from Brooklyn, and her parents were die-hard Dodger fans. You surely understand baseball karma, right?
Thank you, World O’ Crap for this awesome post!
While I’m at it, hello to Jim Vance! I’m following you now. My husband rides a Harley. That’s why I decided to do a poker run as a fundraiser, so many years ago.
Yeah, I remember Jim Vance when
his afro was even bigger he was even younger than this!
When I was 14, I used to write commentaries and send them to Bryan somebody. I can’t think of his name. He always sent me a letter saying thank you, but we can’t use your commentary. My first rejection letters. My father was a writer who got lots of them and became bitter. I learned early that you’re not entitled to success as a writer.
Now, ironically, because of Amazon, we have books like this out there.
How long before someone writes the book “How to Make a Million Dollars Writing Novels Without Any Talent”? LOL!
PPS: Thanks to Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar for this awesome quote:
“Life — and I don’t suppose I’m the first to make this comparison — is a disease: sexually transmitted, and invariably fatal.”
Neil Gaiman, born 10 November 1960
And thank you Paul for all your support!
PPPS: Bryan Rash! I think that’s what his name was. Maybe.
