A little work, a little play

I’m free of the work-a-day Dilbert Word for just over a month now.  I’d like to say I’ve gotten a whole lot done, but I can’t lie that large.  I’ve been playing alot. There’s so much to do in Birmingham in April, the art shows, Saturday market at PepperPlace, Sunday patio parties at Daniel Day Gallery, Magic City Art Connection and Corks n Chefs at Linn Park, etc.  May won’t be much better with the Crawfish Boil, Do Dah Days, more art openings, Sloss Brewfest and more…


  1. The e-book on Journaling, newly titled after checking Google Adwords, is in its final edits.  The ebook software to which I have free upgrades for life just got updated to be more msword friendly with spellcheck and has cover templates and more.  So the timing is perfect. Hoping to upload to Amazon July 15, 2013.
  2. Paintings number about 7 in various stages from wash to 3 layers.paintings in progress 1
  3. Freelance writing is slow.  Still no decision from Victoria Magazine, but the want it just don’t know what issue (pays on publication).  Meanwhile Mridu Khullar Relph, long-time freelance writer has thrown down the gauntlet to anyone that wants to join her in sending out at least 1 query per day for the 30 days of May.  I’ve taken the challenge – I need something to keep me accountable for my vision of a successful 2013.
More Later.
