Writing my life away

I love to write. I wrote as a little girl and found it again after having three kids. This will be a way for me to 'keep up' with getting published. Since I'm not published, I hope this will keep me on target and not stray.

competent? hmm

ok I'm in a lot of writing groups. Really. So in one I send in some of my writing for some feedback. I got it. Competent, but bland. Huh, okay. I understand that. I feel bland about the comment, I'm thinking hey this must be good that I understand so completely. I mean I think the comment was competent, but bland which is what they thought about my writing-which means that my understanding by feeling the same can only improve my writing. Yes? Well, I hope so. I can use it to strive for the interesting, can't put it down type of writing.
Competent, yet bland. Okay got it--Hey they didn't say it sucked! That's great!

Everything is a learning experience. Everything. Thanks for my comment. That did help. It will help me to improve and it won't be bland. :-D

Yeeee Haaawwww!

DukeFest 2005!!
I made it!!
And darn it I forgot a tee shirt!!
They wrecked a General Lee and a Roscoe P. Coltrane's police car. Ouch that hurt!!
Luckily no one was hurt.
I came pretty close to John Schneider (Bo Duke)!! and my kids got their picture with James Best (Roscoe)!!
Heck I even got a pat on the back from Cletus Hog! It was a wonderful day for us and the kids!!

Sonny Shroyer (Enos Straight) wasn't there (I hope everything is fine with him). We saw him a few months back at Cooter's Place in Gatlinburg. Such a relaxed atmosphere there. He and his wife talked to us like old friends. I'd love to see them again. Such a lovely set of people is very hard to find.

In case you didn't guess I love THE DUKES OF HAZZARD!
It occurred to me today that I was four years old when the first show aired. My middle child turns four this year and he had his picture taken with his favorite person from the Dukes.. Roscoe. What a circle life is....
