Wheel of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune Auditions were held at Derby Lane in Saint Petersburg, Florida, on Friday, March 21, 2008. Here’s a photo of me with Vanna and Pat.

My author friend, Tara Randel, and I decided to check out the Wheelmobile Wheel of Fortune event. The crowds were enormous. We arrived a little early, yet there were a zillion people ahead of us in line.

Here’s a photo of Tara:

We each filled out the information sheets so that we’d have a chance to audition. Attendees were divided up into three groups. In our group we guestimated somewhere between 600-1000 people. Approximately 40 names (out of our group) were drawn randomly and sadly neither of us were chosen (can you believe it?!). Unfortunately, because of the crowds or perhaps the venue, we weren’t able to see much of the auditions.

However, we still had lots of fun people watching. Even better, we followed up the evening by eating yummy Mexican food!

  1. Hey, I know you’re short, KC, but I had no idea Pat & Vanna were so tall! *g*

    That’s too bad you didn’t get selected. I was about to get excited that somebody I know was going to be on Wheel of Fortune.

  2. LOL! No snide remarks about my height!

    I was sadly disappointed not to have a chance to audition. I’m perky (no snide remarks about my perkiness, either). I’m good at the game. ::sigh::

    I mainly went because today is the anniversary of my mom’s death and Wheel of Fortune was her favorite TV show. I’m sure she was there with me in spirit! She adored Vanna White and thought she was the ideal for style, beauty and grace — KC

Diana’s Most Excellent Post

On Saturday I posted about Endings on the Plot Monkey’s site and today Diana Peterfreund posted a fabulous article on story Beginnings! You won’t want to miss it:

She makes several great points. One of her suggestions is to judge contests because it will help improve your own writing. She also says nice things about me, which I kinda enjoy! — KC [of the swelled head]

  1. That was a great post, Kathy! I was late surfing around, so you know, here I am days later complimenting you. 🙂 When I was putting together my synopsis back in the Fall, I followed your instructions religiously!

This just in from an audience member: My brother-in-law, Paul, and his dog auditioned for America’s Got Talent and were chosen for the filming today and tomorrow in Dallas 🙂

Here’s a photo of Paul with another of his dogs, Sport:

I so hope they’ll make the final round! — KC

  1. Congrats to your brother! that is amazing! I love your site, just wanted to stop in and say hi!

  2. A little birdie in the audience told me he made it to the next round, but that won’t take place for a few months.

    The program airs this summer. I can’t wait to see how he does! — KC

Author’s Luncheon sponsored by Friends of the Clearwater Library

In addition to being busy writing, I’ve been enjoying myself!

On February 13th, I was one of approximately eight authors who were invited to the Winter Author’s Luncheon sponsored by the Friends of the Clearwater Library. We all had so much fun! It was held at Harborview Center in downtown Clearwater and the weather was perfect. I truly enjoyed meeting so many of the Library Friends as well as Women’s Club volunteers.

Here’s a photo of me with author Jim Swain:

Here’s a photo of one of the organizers, Rosalie Murray. She looks so fabulous in red!
