Pet Peeve

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Why is it that most of the time when someone asks me why I’m in a wheelchair and I tell them, they say “I’m sorry”? I CHOSE to use a wheelchair when I was 21, because it hurt too much to walk, and took too damn much energy.

I’m a Published Author!

Not in a book, but I have an article in an magizine devoted to Science Fiction and Fantasy that people check into to that is internet only.

Otherworld Gezette is filled with book, movie and other types of reviews. A friend, David F, has been a contributor there for quite awhile, and has been pestering me to write up a report on SOMETHING.

I finished reading a book, and off-handidly mentioned to David maybe I should write up that review he’d been pestering me about, and he said, yes, I should, and directed me to Google Docs as the editor used that program a lot easier for for editing.

I produced a half page review of Donita Paul’s Dragon Spell, Book 1 of a series of books. I can’t wait to read the rest of them. That was two days ago, and David just informed me that my review was up on the site, here at: http://www.otherwheregazette.com/2012/01/15/pauls-dragonspell-an-interesting-and-engaging-fantasy/

Wow. A published author. I don’t know if I can handle it.
