Reflection and Comments -July 28, 2019
#1 – REVISE & UPDATE my Amazon Author Page – Do this FIRST.
July 28, 2019: Done
#2 – Update – Revise – New Title- Publish Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage
July 28, 2019: This will be for 2020 year. I have started to make the outline for this revision. I will have to get out all my journals from the years I traveled and sift through them for additional information and material. Begin this in January 2020.
#3_Publish Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, 60 poems.
July 28, 2019: Book was published July 15, 2019.
#4- Get Chapbook, first snow, published –16 poems.
July 28, 2019: Chapbook will be published by Finishing Line Press, January 2020.
As it turned out, this chapbook was chosen by another publisher as well. I had to decline that second one.
#5 – Write Miss Opal – A Memoir – A Cat’s Eye View,
I have started working on the Introduction for it and will try to work on it every week at least one day from now on.
Miss Opal will tell her story of being born in the mountains of southern Ohio – her rescue – and her new life living with the famous artist, Miss Opal Waters of the Opal Waters School of Design” and her new family in western PA. I have a cast of characters ready to begin the telling of Miss Opals life story. I had this idea to write this story in 2012 – and it has been brewing ever since –
July 28, 2019: This is on the back burner for possible future project – beyond 2020.
Miss Opal at work as Lynda’s Literary Assistant in the office.
She also has a Sister Cat Miss Bessie Smith who patrols the house during the nights.
Both sisters share their lives with Lynda, Bob, and the 2 dogs: Miss Dixie Tulip and Miss Mitchell.
#6 – Write my MEMOIR– Under the Blueberry Moon – in my 70s.
I have written so many artcles that could easily be worked into a memoir, and have tons of photos I can sift through for this project.
Below: Bob Lambert snapped this photo of me from the back when she had her hair dyed purple in the spring of 2019. It was one of those “just for fun” moments of life.
July 28, 2019. I completed an outline of the periods in my life, from birth, into my mid-70s. I will use this outline and begin to drop in material in 2020. I am thinking this could be a completed project by the end of 2020.
#7 – Continue writing my “Saturday is for Sharing” series; “Thursday Treasures Series” and “Tuesday Travels Series” for SCAN.
July 28, 2019. I find that I am not motivated to write things according to a long term pre-planned agenda and pre-planned topics. I’ve discontinued doing the regular pieces, because I get weary and disinterested with being on a schedule like this. Life is just too complex for me to narrow it down to weekly postings in different categories. I am just too random for this kind of plan. It works fine for others, but not for me. The artist inside of me has to be able to pivot and change direction on a dime. I am erasing this expectation right now. It is not in my wheel house!
