Enjoy My Ramblings!
I was Regional Advisor for the Northern Ohio SCBWI back in the “olden days” before Facebook and blogs were the way to communicate. As a way to share my thoughts, I posted a number of RA Ramblings on the Northern Ohio website. Some of them are included here. I hope you gain even a small nugget of wisdom from some of my rambling thoughts.
In a radio interview with blog radio station A Kind Voice on Books, I share some of my personal journey in my writing career and some tidbits on publishing in the world today.
“Unless you live in a cave, you’ve heard of American Idol.” That was a recent comment made by a morning news anchors prior to a clip about the latest American Idol poll.
I don’t profess to living in a cave, although if you’ve seen my office you might suggest I should, and the more isolated the better. But, seriously, she’s right. I love music, but I rarely watch the show. But I will admit to talent envy because I couldn’t sing my way out of a shower.
On my son’s 21st birthday, he celebrated by taking his first parachute jump. I can assure you this was not the way I wanted him to celebrate his birthday, and I was a nervous wreck and mad as all get out. When I graduated from high school, I celebrated with a trip to the Boston and New York area with two friends. The exciting part of the trip was that we didn’t have a clue where we were staying (of course, our parents didn’t know that), and spent one night in a men’s dorm at Yale and one night crashed on the floor of some young musician’s home that we had met on the street.
