huh... yeah... I am still reeling from the latest email to hit the lovely Droid phone. (Phone actually toots its own horn by bellowing "DDDRRROOOIIID!" when I get an email. So cool!) Besides the worst picture of a redneck tatoo ever (thanks Tina-Tina! My eyes are still on fire!), I received an email from a gentleman that I met with yesterday. I fumbled through the meeting stammering and stuttering and trying desperately to remember to look into his face, despite feeling like my hair may actually be on fire. I was talking to him about a project that I needed some direction on. I knew I was supposed to talk to him, but I like to keep my projects rather guarded... I don't like putting out my pearls, despite the fact that sometimes they are supposed to be out there - Thus, the Compliance post earlier... I realize that right now, I am making very little sense. It is because I am not sure what form this project is supposed to take. I don't know if it means another blog, a self published project, or what... So don't hate me because I'm being vague. (That means you, McG!)
The email has me reeling because the man I met with didn't tell me I was an amateur hack. (He is a publisher with a large organization here in Colorado.) He didn't do a bunch of "editing" by using a large red sharpie marker and writing "Start over!" at the top, like I expected. He had suggestions. Ones I am taking into sincere consideration. But he didn't leave me in a steaming, torn up heap on the floor. He actually told me things I never thought I would read about me. They are things I am embarrassed and reticent to share, lest I be held to a higher standard than I am ready for. Let's just say he didn't think I stink! (Ha ha ha! He might if he reads that sentence!)
I will share more as I come to understand what it is I am to do with the products of this new project. In this land of economic down turn, I am looking at probably starting a companion blog, maybe doing some self-funded publishing (since my name isn't King, Patterson, Rivers or Lucado I likely won't find a traditional publishing company to take a chance on me).
And now, back to our orignal programming... Laundry on a Sunday! yay...
