Ok, sooo I’m knowing it’s not that many folks, but, let me just reiterate “one small step” well you get the deal and it is a big deal for clara54 to have folks interested in what’s going on in her world as a transitional nurse, writer and lover of all creatives in the blogosphere and offline as well:) I seem to have a few sparks flying in my direction these days, some good, some tolerable and some just dang irritating.
First off the dang irritating stuff: Had to send my beautiful laptop off to the geek squad. Discovered a virus, so it’s at the doctors for diagnosis and treament. My main and fairly new computer toppled down from its resting place, landing face down on the desk and so, again, having sluggish days here. Correction, more like posting days that resemble molasses in winter. Can you say, slooow ? Anyway, I won’t be publishing the great stuff (and there are great posts ahead) until I’m feeling confident & great about this technology.
Some good came out of the reading material I’ve been asked to look over these last weeks. From author & nurse, Karen Lowry’s request to help bring awareness to ADHD from her book The Seventh Inning Sit:A JOURNEY OF ADHD, I became intrigued by the subject matter and as a nurse, wanted to explore this diagnosis in African-American children as well. My curiousity led to a guest column in a local Illinois newspaper. I was also asked by the editor to review a book on politics for another column and I’m happy to report that a friend’s request to help her friend with a speech of dire importance was quite humbling and honored to be trusted by these people to assist in such a delicate subject matter (legalities here)
The Tolerable: Working a “day” job. Knowing full well the gig that keeps the financial hounds at bey. It pangs me to continue this route when all I want to do is write. Looking forward to some time off in a few weeks:) and this bit of troll stuff that I’ve noticed. The small stuff folks of character would never respond & give up their power to! It all comes with the territory of the freelance writer, ever emerging into the writer the world will soon come to know lol!
The Drumroll: My Twitter pals have grown to 100 and counting! Thanks to all who follow & I won’t disappoint, promise!… Ok, now, I’ve got to try and post over at my motivational blog for women,(wisewoman2) before this computer goes kaput! Hopefully things will get back to normal soon:)
