where the writers are
Front Page!

No, no, not the movie. Here. On Red Room. I'm on the Front Page! Wonder of wonders! And truly, I did wonder how authors were chosen to be on the Front Page. I finally decided that I'd never know.

Late last night I received an e-mail from Belle Yang (it wasn't late on the West Coast) telling me the amazing news! I surfed over. I didn't think Belle would joke about something like that. Sure enough, there it was, my photo and the link to the podcast I'd uploaded, the one I did with another Red Room author, Amy Shojai during which we talked about dogs. I say that because we could just as easily have talked about cats. There's nothing like being multi-cultural and loving all animals. :-)

Today I received a congratulatory e-mail from the Red Room's Huntington Sharp with the official announcement and he thanked me for uploading the interview.

I feel like the kid who got the brass ring.

Thanks, Red Room, for the pleasure of being your company and for the honor of being on the Front Page.

Thank You!

Thanks, Jennifer! I hope your computer is fixed soon. Not so you can listen; so you can write! Computers: can't live with them and can't live without them.....

don't worry, I'm still writing...

I've got my laptop. I disabled it so I can't get internet-when I'm writing fiction I can't get distracted. Non-fiction, it's okay to take a break, read a blog, then put on a podcast, etc. Don't ask me why. I think it's because I need to concentrate on the characters, when talking about me, hey, I can get distracted all I want!

Well, That's a Relief!

You're so wise to get rid of the distraction. Sometimes I take my laptop to a nearby coffee shop because I refuse to pay for the WiFi connection and I can concentrate better in different surroundings when I find myself "stuck." A large cup of coffee helps, too. <G>

You're on the Front Page

Well done, Darlene. I'm impressed. Thank you for letting me know about Red Room. I can see I will become a regular visitor. There is a wealth of talent within Red Room and I can now access some of it wherever I am and whenever I have the time.

Hi Stuart!

It's lovely to see you here! What a treat! I'm off to New Mexico in the morning for ten days. I hope all is well on your side of the pond!

The Red Room is my "home" on the internet and I think you can probably see why I love it so much!
