Gee I wish I were a Pachyderm. I listened to several people talk about their futures and instantly wished I had a recorder in my purse. The future-my future and yours, is as bright as we make it. So get out your sunglasses when you lace up those boot straps and get moving! Often I feel that I NEED so much help from SO MANY people to keep up with this ever changing world. Well okay, maybe I do-right now.(Thank you honey.) When I find what I really want, my way is to find out who has what I want and how they got it. Follow the leaders and surround yourself with them and their knowledge. Old dogs can learn new tricks, finding the teachers, being open to learning the lessons that come your way even when you're not looking is paramount. Life has a way of bringing to you what you need more often than what you think you want. Look for lessons and connections that come your way and take advantage of them. Well I'm off to follow my wild and adventurous mind, glad I had my note book with me today. I found my muse working at the oddest and most inconvenient times today.

This week at our writers meeting we were informed that we will be hosting Maggie Bonham, Publisher at Sky Warrior Books, this coming Thursday. Wow. Yeah, panic time. Words like pitch, Bio's, synopses, and platform are suddenly very big words to us. With one novel back from its first true critique and not fully revised, and the other only 67k words and not finished, I find myself the proverbial dear in the headlights. What to do? Confidence is on my side, but having unfinished work is not. Being prepared for whatever comes my way at any time is something I must master. Wish me luck in this crunch time. Good luck and grace to all who are open to, and step up to, what ever comes their way in life.
