A Writer Writes...

Me and Francis Ray. One of my fave-o-rite authors. Photo snapped a couple years ago. Serious Tina Turner crazy hair goin' on. I liked it tho. OK, back to tonight. Francis had a book signing tonight. Just a couple minutes literally away from my house. Francis is such an inspiration.

She still has a FULL time job. Yep. Works in the Dallas School District and written a few dozen of best seller books. Francis tonight mentioned again, she's still a bit self concious about her writing. Yea. OK. This author has more books coming out this year and another 5 in 2012.

I told Francis, since I've been back to school along with work, I just do not want to sit in front of the PC any longer than I must. The lady stands up, takes my hands, looks into my eyes and tells me how burn out is the hardest thing to overcome, yet I'm the only one who can write the story that I see.

OK. I did tell Francis I got my creative juices out by doing my pots. Francis hugged me and smiled, "And next time I see you. You better have written something too."

Stay tuned.
