Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Breathe. Just breathe.

That's what my CP Teresa said to me on the phone tonight. Repeatedly. Amid screaming laughter. Because I'm having another female moment. Matter of fact, I considered titling this entry "Female Moment Part II".

Tonight, I came home from a trip to Wal-Mart with the kids, opened Rocky, and downloaded my e-mail. And nearly fell out of my chair.

You see, last month, I put up an entry called Having a Female Moment . A large portion of that post was about the band Final Frontier and my reactions to their lead singer Rob Moratti in the video I downloaded from their site for their song "Lydia".

Right now, I'm a bit giddy (to put it very very mildly), a little embarrassed, and slightly freaked out. Because what I found when I downloaded my e-mail today was an e-mail from Rob Moratti himself. At least, I'm pretty sure it was him, or else somebody is playing a very cruel joke. But I'll go on the assumption it was him.

I won't go into the details of the e-mail, but he did thank me for being a fan, and mentioned my comments put a smile on his face. He also noted they would be shooting another video for a track on their upcoming third CD, High Tension Wire.

So that's why I'm giddy and freaked out. Why am I embarrassed? If you've read my original Female Moment post, you know. When I wrote that post, it never occurred to me that the musicians I mention in my blog would actually read it! Obviously, my first reaction was to go back and read that post. To make sure there was nothing there that would make me wear a bag over my head if I ever had the opportunity to see Final Frontier live.

Thankfully, nothing too bad, but all the drooly faces (in my BraveJournal version of this blog) did give me pause. And I can't help but wonder what he thought when he saw it. Thank goodness I can laugh at myself! (And please, Teresa, no napkin comments!)

So, Mr. Rob Moratti, if you were brave enough to come back again, thanks so much for your wonderful e-mail. You've made my day, my week, my month, and quite possibly, my year.


  • Wow! That is so cool that Rob e-mailed you. I remember your "Female Moment" post. I'll bet you are pretty wound up.

    One of the reasons I don't post real names of friends and acquaintances is that a Google search could find them. I'm not altogether sure some of the people I know/knew would be too enthused about being immortalized, so I keep it safe. Maybe that's how he found your Blog?

    I'd love to be 'found' by one of the celebrities whose names I've posted. Well, maybe not the ones from this mornings post.

  • Bob -- that's most certainly how he found my blog. He said as much in his e-mail. And yes, I'm wound up. Grinning like a fool. Amazing -- and a little scary -- how just one e-mail can do that to me. (And I don't want to even think about what one of the celebrities from your most recent post might say to you!)
