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.

Freak? Or Geek?

Got my first report card from my RD Bootcamp mentor. She pointed out some shortcomings I knew I had but didn't know how to articulate, but overall, it was good, so I'm not freaked out. She wants me to send her more, which reminds me, I need to respond to her e-mail.

Worked out this morning with my friend, and I think I did something do my back. It's killing me! My daughter walked on it for a little while, and that helped, but damn, did I really need this reminder that I'm getting old?

After the workout, my friend and I met up with one of my CPs, Teresa, for lunch. We laughed a lot, ate a lot, and had a great conversation. We decided the food probably negated our workout, but then again, at least we had a workout to negate, right?

The past couple of days, I've been watching my DVDs of the old television show Freaks and Geeks. I'd forgotten how great this show was! It was one of those shows that died an early death, never receiving the recognition it truly deserved, despite the Emmy nominations.

If you never saw it (and most people probably haven't), it's about a group of high school students in 1980 Michigan. One of my favorite things about this show is the music. I mean, how many shows do you know have used Ted Nugent, Van Halen, Cream, BTO, Madness, Journey, Styx, The Allman Brothers, Supertramp, and a bunch of others in the soundtrack, all reflective of the time period? Even if the other components of this show sucked (which they don't), I'd be watching just for the tunes.

Does that make me a freak? Or a geek?

I'm hoping to get some work done on BMO tonight, since it's my husband's late night at work. One problem. Has anybody seen my motivation hanging around anywhere?

  • I just saw your motivation and my motivation running like hell down the road. Sadistic little suckers.

    I don't like Cold Case, but I'll watch it for the music. If they ever had a soundtrack, I'd buy it. Um...so no. You're not a geek. Or mebbe I'm a geek, too. Imagine that! *snickering*

    Congrats on the first report card. Sounds good.

  • Chryscat--You're right. They are sadistic little suckers. I'll bet they were laughing maniacally as they ran, weren't they?

    I love Cold Case! And you're right--the music's great.
