My wonderful mother made a suggestion in passing that has set my mental cogs in motion. Her comment coincided with some encouragement from others which seemed to oil the cogs. She suggested that I write a book about Tim’s year as Mayor.
I’ve thought and thought about this…and I’m still undecided. “A Year with the Mayor” – hmmm? I’m not sure. But while I’m still thinking about it, I thought I’d start by keeping a journal of the journey and then the more I’ve thought about that, I’ve felt like I’d like some feed back from people who have read what I’ve written previously in my blog. I’d love some people who would give me feed back on style; skill; where to improve; what’s good; what’s not; what they’ve enjoyed/disliked; where I’m making consistent mistakes etc. In short, I’d like some good old fashioned English teachers to mark my work! I feel like I need that sort of a spring board to jump from and dive into this next project.
I’d love help from anyone who reads what I write, but there are a few people who keep blogs that I follow, whose expertise and advice I particularly crave, as I truly respect and trust your skill. If you have time and care to comment, I’d love to hear opinions from:
Mrs Sargent (without the eye shadow); a wonderful librarian (who is full of quiet wisdom); a Doctor of Literature (who has yet to show the world what is stored up in all the words inside of her); a gifted story teller (whose gift developed during a childhood of disobedient talking after lights out and stayed with him because he never wanted to grow older than ten); an incredible author (who is so original she made “ClothKits” cool, and for as long as I have known her, has stood head and shoulders above me – in skill and stature); and a talented craftswoman (who crafts with words – and scrapbooks).
