Today was a big day for me! I met with Hillary Lodge who is a photographer, to get my photos done of me for my blog, and this website. I won’t see them for a few days until Hillary sends them to me. I must say that Hillary is an outstanding photographer, and anyone that needs author shots for their site or book should contact her. You can see her blog at www.hillaryonwriting.blogspot.com.
As we were walking through beautiful Hendricks Park in Eugene, Oregon we saw an amazing sight! Walking ahead of us were six wild turkeys in a gaggle, flock, herd, (I don’t know!!!) They didn’t seem to care that we were there. They just kept feeding and chasing each other around.
Now, as a person who looks for meaning in life, I am not sure if I want to know the meaning of this happening. I will just marvel at it happening, and let the turkeys move on.
I am excited about the photography session with Hillary. She had me standing in front of trees, sitting on benches, and smelling the flowers. Actually, there was one shot where we weren’t sure what the plant was that I was next to, but it looked like one of those creatures from the movie, where everyone was getting swallowed up by a huge man eating plant. I tried to stay as far away from it as I could!!
I have now gotten a few subscribers. I will be sending out over a thousand invitations to subscribe, as soon as I know that the site is at its top form. Then after that I will begin sending out the newsletter for those that have subscribed on the newsletter page.
You can look at some of my previous posts to see what else I will be putting in the newsletter. I do not want to be repeating myself.
I have been sending out submissions to magazines and newspapers for about three weeks now. I have ten submissions out. It takes time to get a reply, so I will wait patiently, chewing my fingers to nubbins!!
Let me know what you think of my posts, and website in general. Just make a comment to any post you read. Don’t be too harsh, I cry easily.
