Cold and Writing, a Good Combonation

I woke up in the night with a sore throat and aching all over.  Not too surprising since I watched a child with the boogers from hell last week.  I was hoping all of my hand washing would save me, but alas, no.  It’s hard NOT to catch a cold when a sick child sneezed directly into your face.  Surprise GrannyK!

So, I stayed in my pajamas today (something I hate doing) because I just didn’t want to get dressed!  Although, they are very warm and toasty and the day is heating up, so I see cooler clothes in my near future.

While trying to decide what to do with myself, I decided to start writing again.  I have an old story that I am redoing.  Like all of my writing, it is a short story.  I’m just not up to a novel.  Maybe someday I will give that a try.  Anyway, I got the first draft about a third done this morning.  I had to stop because the arthritis in my hands started swearing at me.  So, I stopped and now I’m doing a blog post?  How is that smart?

I am going to keep at this story.  I will find someone with actual grammar skills to help me through the rough stuff and then I will turn it into an ebook.  If I keep it under 4000 words, Papyrus Editor is free.  If I go over I have to pay!  I will see where it turns out, but it’s already about 1800 words.

I hope you all are having a decent Sunday.  Relax and enjoy before the work week begins!

 

Off To Watch The Magic Get Made

The Modern Philosopher himself in acting action!

GracieThis is going to be a quick and early post, Modern Philosophers, because I am heading over to The Gracie Theatre on the campus of Husson University for the latest taping of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman.

I really love being a part of making a television show.  I’ve already made my contribution, as my monologue jokes have been written and submitted to Danny.

Tonight, I just get to sit back, relax, and be entertained by a really enjoyable show put on by a group of dedicated, talented, hardworking people.  Once again, I must give a shout out to the crew, which is made up of students from NESCOM.

Since I am not acting in any sketches tonight, the most stressful thing I need to do is count how many of my jokes Danny uses, and gauge the audience’s reaction to what I’ve written.  Sure, I’ll help out…
