Susan, Any plans to bring The Many Paths to Publishing—Which One’s Right for You? to the San Francisco area? I'm currently teaching a class, "The Road to Publication" for our local university's Extended Education program. I know we have people interested in hearing what you and April have to say. Please keep me in the loop! Looking forward to hearing rave reviews!
Hahaha! I'm pretty sure that I missed the last train to Normal a few years ago, but not for lack of trying. But hey. I guess that means I'm a better writer than I might have been. In fact, there may be a blog post in there somewhere about how the train left me at the station...with all of my baggage.
Hi, Susan! I really liked your blog about the voices in our heads. Thank goodness that writing is socially acceptable schizophrenia. Haha! I've said for a long time that normal is highly over-rated, anyway. :)
Thanks so much for the comment on the video, Susan. It was my husband's doing. He sees things that bother him and makes a video. I always somehow end up in them by default. If you saw it on my old page, Atoll Annie, that will soon be defunk. The new site is Annie Off Leash (http://annieboreson.com) Thanks for taking a peak and commenting. I really do appreciate it!
Thanks for the invite Susan! No I have not tried to import my blogger blog. I guess I ought to look into that. I have a self-hosted WP blog rather than one created at Wordpress.com but hopefully that won't make a big difference.
The blog hop is over, but the dinner/dance goes on . . . I think you're onto something with your wonderful blog re: two kinds of people, and would love to add you as a friend here on She Writes (I sent a request). I would also like to thank for your very kind and thoughtful comments on my blog posts. In light of what you wrote, specifically in response to "Lipstick," I thought you'd appreciate seeing the photo I used when I posted the essay on a different site I write for. Lipstick
I definitely know you from twitter. I am @mpf2011. I live in Evanston. I would like to know more about the writing group in Winnetka. I am in a Master's program on Monday and Wednesday nights but not every week.
Thanks for commenting. Perhaps instead of saying that our big earning years are behind us, I should have said that our big spending years are ahead of us with college tuitions and perhaps weddings to pay for.
I don't know why I didn't think of the school. If you email me your address, I'll send you five copies for your workshop and then I'll give the rest to our high school. It's a small, rural district. I'm sure they could use them. Thanks!!!!
My heart and thoughts go out to you! NICU is a wild and emotional ride to say the least. We spent 49 days in two different NICUs with my daughter who was born at 27 1/2 weeks. I sent my thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Hey Susan, thanks for that! I'm delighted by the Book of the Month Club sale, and am trying to hold on as everything shifts into hyperdrive the month before WRECKER's pub date. I checked out your blog and, wow, what a journey you've been through -- and what beautiful young adults your children have grown to be! I spent plenty of time in NICUs with two of my nieces, born premature; your blog brings back memories. It requires unbelievable strength and a ton of faith for parents to survive an experience like yours, and for you to share your story will bring hope and a sense of connectedness to other moms in a similar boat. Brava! -- and best luck with the memoir!
Thanks, Susan! I enjoyed your post about children and music. Your kids' performance made me smile. I have a five year old who is asking me to let her take piano lessons and I am steeling myself for the "March of the Gnomes" echoing through the house soon.
