|Oops! Sorry about posting the random note. I was just checking something and hit submit by accident. |
On a side note, a poem of yours will be in Editor's Picks for the Drama newsletter this coming week.
|Thanks very much for the merit badge and the good wishes. We'll get by somehow!|
I finally wrote something new. Check it out if you have a minute.
Hello, WDC people!
What a week; first with work, then I attended a business expo, which I have to tell you, is one of the most soul-crushing experiences I've ever endured.
A wondrous networking excursion, my keister!
Hundreds of bored professional folk wandering around, pretending they're more important than they are.
Next to them were the social-media marketers, and while I appreciated their hustle, their parasitic near-automated sounding felt extremely robotic.
Hello, sir. We can help get you on the internet. We have professional videographers who can make you...
If you're paid to communicate, shouldn't the ability to think and speak at the same time be a prerequisite?
What otherworldly horror hides behind the eyes of the soulless accountants sitting in the corner, blankly staring out at the sea of people, waiting to harvest their wallets if they got close enough.
I'm so glad I'm finally free from the clutches of these dang pod people, and hey, I got an entry into the Short Shots competition, so that's something.
Yeah, it's a kind of romance story; a stark departure from my usual stories, but I think it turned out okay.
I know I don't usually rant like this but gosh dang I needed to vent.
Thanks for reading.
Happy 1st WdC Anniversary!
This is the beginning of a success story
that will continue for many more years.
Kindest Regards, Lilli
Hello, WDC peoples!
As usual, I'm late to the party, but I hope you all had an incredible Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/Saturnalia/Holiday season.
Somehow, December's escaped me entirely, and most of you know, I was away in November to take a shot at NaNoWriMo which went surprisingly well.
While I squirrel myself away from time to time, a two-month absence feels like a somber eternity clawing at my heels.
Research, reality, recreation, responsibilities, and revelations rattled me slightly, but I'll fill you in on that in the coming days.
For now, I wish all of you a happy new year, and a better 2020!
