JUST SMILE AND WAVE

I wrote about three pages last night which was just wonderful for me. I need to keep writing even though I am getting used to being back in a paying job and working with co-workers. Freelancing definitely spoiled me. But even though some of my co-workers acted out today, I couldn't help but laugh at them. I guess it was probably due to the advice a fellow blogger, Tonja over at http://tonjasmusings.blogspot.com/, gave me, about how I could use my work experiences for my writing. So that was probably why I was laughing because I was thinking that there were going to be characters with their behaviour in some of my books and I could do to those characters just what I want. My co-workers of course started laughing too, because they thought they said something funny, but little did they know they were the joke, hahahahaha!

I know I sound a little psycho, but I need to get through this somehow, so humour me a little? I also finished reading the book The Help, by Kathryn Stockett and I loved it. I know the book came out ages ago, but I only recently got my own copy. Also, I read Cat and the Dreamer by Annalisa Crawford and I also loved it. The main character was easy for me to relate to and of course I love any story where the underdog gets the guy.

  1. I loved The Help and just saw the movie over the weekend. It was wonderful, too.

  3. I'm glad you're settling into work again. Laughing is much better than being annoyed by them!

    Thanks for the mention :-)

  4. That's the only way I made it through one of my extended family Christmas things. One of my cousins was very offensive - I took notes in my mind.

    I loved The Help. The movie was a disappointment - it glossed over the details that made the book exceptional.

  5. Nancy - I loved the movie too! It has a lot of funny moments, which makes it just great. Thank you for the comment, Nancy.

    M.J. - I am only realizing how much one person can get up to in one day. Thanks M.J.

    Annalisa - You are so welcome! Yeah, I have to learn to get along with them, as the end of harvest season is still a long way off. Thank you so much for visiting.

    Tonja - I agree, people can say the rudest things and think it is amusing. I watched the movie before I read the book and so fell in love with the movie. But I agree, the book is much better. I am only now truly realizing how little of the book was actually in the movie. Thank you for coming to visit.
