I have not disappeared, I've just been working on my
sci-fi novel. Indeed! I need a break from managing the
money of huge corporations. Instead, I need to get back
to my roots. I've been writing stories since I first
learned to hold a pencil. I have piles of children's
books, duck books, young adult books... just lying
around the house in various stages of production. It's
time I give it a real go.
My college professors used to pull me aside and tell me
that I could make it in the industry, but never had
someone by my side to encourage me to do so. No one I
knew wanted to read what I wrote, or could've cared
less, and I lost confidence in my writing. Tony loves my
writing and wants me to get published. He says that my
books are better than most of the books he's read in his
life (and he's an avid reader). I remember in college,
fellow students would say they learned more from me than
from the professors.
So... it is time. I'm giving it a real go. Since losing
my job on the 7th, my 87 page book has turned into 122
pages of sci-fi. I'm printing what I have so far for
Tony to read to get a good opinion.
In other news (duck & goose news)... We finished
re-facing the last of our cement ponds and turned on the
new Aqua-duck-t. It's amazing!
I moved "the pit vipers" Duran Duran from West Wing to
The Gardens. I have them each in different tiers, so
that I can get into the pen without having to dodge
alternating strikes. Having them in separate, but
neighboring pens keeps them happy and I can get into
their enclosures without them teaming up on me. They've
lost their edge and I have one of the Duran twins (brown
eyes) eating grass out of my hands already. The other
Duran will take a little more time, but we'll get there.
And I took this really funny picture of Mac and Bridget
going nose to nose. Careful Bridget!
