Ever want to do something–just a simple something–and it morphs into this complicated something?
Yeah, I’m having that kind of day. And it’s not even lunch yet.
It started with a package that’s being delivered. After 20 minutes of signing up, logging in, tracking down, and practically promising my first-born Junior Hall, I still only know that the package will arrive by 8 PM.
And then I just wanted to show you my latest Darakwon book. And I found a swell picture of the book on a Korean website (a book site, I think. I mean, I don’t speak Korean but there was a price in big bold numbers. Funny, isn’t it? Price tags are recognizable in any language.) But the website wouldn’t allow me to copy or download the picture of the book. So then I had to track down the book around here, and of course my camera battery was dead, so I had to track down my cell phone to take the picture. And that’s a whole new adventure, y’all. Just to show you this:
Yeah, I’m going extra-large. Because it’s been that kind of day.
(I’m taking my car to be serviced next. Wish me luck.)
So cool! Congrats, Cathy.
Thanks, Pat! I learned a ton writing that book. I’ve forgotten a lot of it, but still, I was pretty impressed while writing it. 🙂
Gah! I hate when that happens! Because after a while, even though you know you’re spinning your wheels, it becomes a matter of principle and you have to keep at it no matter what. 🙂 Congrats on another book, my friend!
Exactly, Lisa! (And thanks! I think this last one just about did me in. 🙂 )
Those days fall on us all! You whomped it Cathy 🙂 Congratulations!
Oh, thanks! I’m gonna remember that word: whomped. Feels like I really accomplished something with a verb like that! 🙂
Hope you made it there and back to get your car serviced! With your kind of day, I don’t know if that was a good idea!! Love your post❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸
Thanks, Mary, the car was fine! And of course, the package came while I was gone. Pfffft.
Cathy–ANOTHER book for the Korean children’s market? You are going to totally corner it soon.
Congratulations. (It’s a great cover.)
I do like this cover, Sioux, thanks! But I don’t think I’ll ever corner the market in Korea–they have LOTS of writers. I’m just one little pea in a giant pod! 🙂
Ah, technology and I are not on friendly terms. It’s me, really. Techno has a lot to offer; I have not enough gray matter to absorb. Congratulations on your new book.This is o exciting. Hope your weekend is wonderful…like you and your writing!
Oh, thanks, Linda! (Sorry about you and techno. It’ll get better? Maybe?)
Very nice, Cathy. My saying is one thing always turns into six. By that I mean to finish the one thing you want to do will take five things you don’t anticipate doing.
Love that saying, Donna. It’s perfect!
Cathy, send me the website url and I can have my hubby translate anything u need.
Oh, that’s so kind of you, Tina! It’s not a big deal. But if you ever run across one of my books and want to translate that bio for me on the last page, that’d be great! (I have no idea what I put in that bio except for the titles that I can read 🙂 )
Two things: Trust it was worth all the effort to you. (Thank you!)
Thank you also for being the first contributor that I came across on the WoW site to forward on your information. Thank you for continuing to write and blog. I found the site reference in an old journal entry. Out dated, but the still there and here, you still are. Thanks again and Blessings!
Yay! Congrats, Cathy!!
Thanks, Kelly! Good to see you again! 🙂
