"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


A "Techie" Post on a Tech-Free Day

For those of you who are curious - YES, I'm still keeping up my tech-free Tuesdays on the first Tuesday of each month. It has been fabulous for me.
 I plan to stay away from my computer and texting all day - and it will be wonderful. Planning on going out to breakfast with my wonderful hubby AND go look at new mattresses (ours is in its teens and has gotten lumpy and, well, poky.)

BUT,  just because I'm not on the computer doesn't mean I can't prepost something. Right? Cuz, you see, the amazing (and amazingly PERSISTENT and CONVINCING) Patty Wysong has been strongly encouraging me and several others to post vlogs (video blogs) on our blogs today. And I ALWAYS do what Patty says. So, while I'm avoiding my computer entirely, enjoy (or something :::roll:::) this short little video of yours truly NOT in her Sunday best, and NOT being exceptionally entertaining (or even a little entertaining LOL). But at least it's only a minute and a half long. And I DID prepost it (on Saturday even!) - so it's all legal.

So - DO you have any other questions? Go ahead and ask in the comments. Just know I won't be by to respond until Wednesday. And be sure to stop by Patty's blog and check out the OTHER vlogs that are there! (and hey - don't be afraid to make one of your own and link up!)
