Take Your Child To Work Day (or my chance to escape from school on a Thursday!)

Today has been quite the interesting day, indeed.

I first learned how to make some delicious brew known as coffee, because. . . And I quote, “No matter where you work in your life, Ian, you’ll always be popular if you know how to make good-tasting coffee.”

The next couple of things in my line-up for today included: Sipping coffee without scorching your upper lip. Taking my mom’s work and cutting out unneeded/over-used words in one of her current novels, Marrying Up.

Next I read over Mom’s synopsis of another one of her books, The Marquis Who Annoyed Me (my Personal Favorite of her current books in the works). It involved cutting out paragraphs and sections that needed some doctoring, trying to reach her goal of 10 pages in length. Finally, I’m here. . .

Typing this in Word Perfect as I’m sitting in her cushioned chair that’s straightening out my back in the most unusual way. I’m wearing my blue checkered robe, blue jeans and fuzzy slippers. Also I can’t forget to mention the day-old stubble napping on this, my 14-going-on-15-year-old face of mine, with sleep in my eyes.

  1. Ian, can you come work for me tomorrow? I have some revisions to do and you sound like you do them well. (And you should start your own blog!)

  3. Hey Ian – cool robe! I’m very jealous, I don’t get to work in my robe and fuzzy slippers. But then again, I never tried showing up looking that way. I wonder what would happen?

    I like your post. Sounds like you inherited a gift for words. When is your first novel coming out?

    By the way, you are looking quite studly and manly these days. You are so handsome, I bet you are having to beat the pretty girls off with a stick, huh?

    love you,
    Auntie Robin

  4. Yeah, Yeah.. Thanks for the posts everyone! And yes, I am having to beat off the girls with sticks, martials arts, ect.

    Bow down to me,
    Ian

Happiness Is . . .

I’ve been having a fabulous time this week because I’ve been reading/critiquing manuscripts from various friends.

The first one, an incredible Medieval by Denise Lynn, is a total powerhouse. She’s such a talented author! Check out her current book, Book 2 in her Falcon’s series, titled FALCON’S HONOR on Amazon.com.

The second is the first book written by an as yet unpublished flight attendant named Danedri Thompson. This laugh out loud book is a joy to read. I predict it won’t be long until she’s published!

It’s such a joy to get to read books in progress by friends. I just love it and, of course, I just love them! — KC
