Swift Kick in the Pants

This is a public thank-you to the editors of WNC Woman Sandi Tomlin-Sutker and Julie Savage Parker. Twice in the last six months they have pushed me to write essays for their publication when I would have thought I was too busy to produce. It's a lesson I'm learning through experience, but not one I would have accomplished without their prompting.
Western North Carolina Woman
The first piece was on The Design Gallery in Burnsville. And the second will appear in their fashion-themed December issue about my daughter's Fashion Birthday Party. Keep your eyes open for it. The publication is free and can be picked up countless places in the Western North Carolina region.
I am also very thankful that I have writer friends who are willing to proof-read at a moment's notice! (I'll confess, too, I suppose I'm begrudgingly appreciative for a grammar-freak brother who loves nothing better than to point out his older sister's errors from half-way around the world. Ha!)

Wow! Good going, BK.

I'm roughly 10492 words behind my word count on the noveling.

But I'm doing the PAD ok. Need to get busy today on the ole keypad...grumble, grumble.

BTW, kimik = alessa

@ kimik -- I can't believe you're trying the NaNoWriMo in both novel and poetry. You're crazy! In a good way, of course.

I am prepared not to make one of the two again this year, but I'm gonna write more than a measly 19000 words on the novel.

Hey, Sis,

I don't think that "grammar-freak" should be hypena...WAIT A MINUTE! Are you talking about me?
