Ooops. Forget the last two. Too much creativity in the air right now.
I love gatherings of any kind where creative minds meet.
Pulses beating a bit faster than normal.
Appetites growing and drinks flowing.
Big plans for the things you are going to accomplish when you arrive home.
It’s been almost two years since like minds met in Dayton at the 2010 EBWW.
It’s been almost two years that the attendees have had in which to accomplish great and wondrous things.
Said accomplishments have pretty much remained in our minds until my dear friend Rosie (BHH) asked us to put them on paper.
She wants us to list, tell, divulge, and confess what we have done since the last meeting in Dayton, which was, much to our dismay, almost two years ago.
We, the attendees, could have remained great in our own minds if it weren’t for people like her.
We could think we had done so much with the knowledge we gained there.
We could sit each day pretending we had done just as much as all the other attendees.
We could have if not for the Rosie’s of the world.
Here’s to you Rosie, for calling us on our delusions.
As for me, I know I have accomplished more than I dreamed of at the workshop.
At the workshop I purchased, not only the cd’s of the 2010 workshop, but I also got the entire set of the 2008 workshop.
So much knowledge on each cd. I know this from what other attendees have said. My cd’s are in my car, waiting for me to open and listen to them.
I have completed two, count them, two books of humor. I hired an artist to do the cover for one of the books. It’s a great cover and I’m sure the book will be a big hit. Forget the fact that the books are completed in my mind and not on paper. I think completing them in any sense is a huge accomplishment.
I have researched in depth how to put a V-blog on my website. Don’t look for it there. I said I have researched it. I haven’t made it happen yet.
I have written and posted to my blog semi-irregularly.
I managed to get a couple of pictures of EB drinking margarita’s at Peg Leg’s on Pensacola
I have purchased books by other authors who write in a similar manner to me. I haven’t read them yet, but I did purchase them.
I have studied the marketing efforts of my writing friends and have picked up a lot of ideas. I lost the ideas as fast as I picked them up, but I should get an E for effort. I can always ask them what they did, if I could remember who they were.
I have signed up for tons of e-mail newsletters, blogs, sites, tarot card readings, and Miss Cleo’s psychic readings, all offering insider tips for getting my work in front of those who count. Oh to find a few days needed to read them. Oh for a year to process and implement the information.
I have marked my calendar for the 2012 EBWW in Dayton. I have a new accountability program, whose name is not Rosie, to aide me in accomplishing great things. I have already developed a very strong dislike for people named Guido.
