As a writer and singer, I am finding my way through words.
Tuesday, July 05, 2011
My friends Sheila and Jeremy showed up to my 4th of July shindig with a lovely stash of sunflowers. (They also brought a fun balloon, which their son was reluctant to give up. Hey, I get it. Balloons rock.)
I never think to buy sunflowers, but I shall start, every now and then. They're so sculptural and artful. I feel like I have a bit of van Gogh in a vase.
Well, apparently, you can have multiple blogs, but you can't have multiple profiles. So this one will have to suffice for every site. My Finding My Voice persona says: My dream is to get paid to sing. That dream is slightly complicated by two things: 1) I'm not a big fan of singing in public, and 2) Not many people get paid to sing. I figure, I'll focus on 1, and then maybe 2 will take care of itself. In the meantime, I'm a writer and editor. Mostly, I write and edit for other people, but someday, I'll find a way to get paid to write solely what I want to write. Until then, here we are. I write what I want, and you, hopefully, read it. But even if you don't, it's still the ultimate ego-trip. My The Cookie Queen's English persona says: It's always good to have more than one dream. And one of my others is to open a bakery someday. A cookie bakery. Hence my blog The Cookie Queen's English, a chronicle of cookies ... and the occasional muffin ... and scone ... and ... . And craigslist is crushing my writerly soul, which, really, needs no further explanation, does it?
