Well you're never to old to learn new things. Lately, I've been taking my little sister's advice and taking a copy of my latest book around with me. What's one more thing added to the purse after all? Today that paid off because I sold a copy to someone I was showing it too. I wasn't exactly expecting that, but it made my day. The lady was very much in awe that anyone could write a book.
In fact, looking back on this month, I have to say it was pretty good. I had lots of compliments out of the blue, which was surprising. I always try to be encouraging to people and I guess I really must have helped some of them. That really felt good because I do try to give everything I do my all. That's why I get consumed in all my projects, I guess. I don't mind sharing what I know with others and helping other writers realize their dream of seeing a book in print. I think a creative mind would understand that. Maybe.
I really feel things are starting to turn around for me, so we'll see what October brings besides cooler weather. I have high hopes, but then I am always the eternal optimist, even when things seem bleak. I don't know why I'm that way, but in my mind I live by the mantra "things can always be worse." And indeed they can be if you really think about situations.
My website needs re-doing again, my husband informed me today, but I was thinking about re-doing the whole thing anyway - as soon as I get the time. He had some good ideas that I'm mulling over.
Okay, I need to get off here and get some rest. I need a massage after all the long hours at the computer lately. I'm glad the weekend is coming and I won't have to get up so early. I'm sure some of you know the feeling. It's tough on a night owl. I have to set the alarm for sure when I'd rather throw all the clocks out the window, but that's a whole other subject I can't delve into just now.
