I finally did it!

No no, not sex! I wouldn't tell you if I did.
What I did was something to get the juices flowing. Now stop it...I told you
no sex was involved!
What I did was take a two day seminar in branding and publishing.
I really needed to stir things up and get off my duff and it worked.
The bad news is that I found out it's time to give up on an old idea I've
been doodling with forever and come up with something new. And
I did have a few good new ideas that I now have to pursue.
It's great to be with other people...the group was composed of a lot of
very bright and interesting people at various stages of careers hoping to
get that big break...mostly a hot book.
The Leaders were good in dispensing a lot of info, but I get the feeling
they weren't all that crazy with my little murmurings which amused those
sitting around me. And mostly I do it to amuse myself .
Old comedy writers never stop being funny when they have a chance.
So the bottom line is, stimulation is important. Hey!! Cut it out! I told you....
no sexual references intended! You should be ashamed of yourselves!

Ha ha. I would join you in the peanut gallery, Susan!

I've finally had to train myself NOT to come out with clever quips and puns at staff meetings. The current boss is having none of my brilliant repartee, alas. 8-/ But it sure goes against my grain to button my beak!

So cool you have a good new idea. I too adore sitting around with intelligent creative people... wish I could get paid for doing that all the time. :-) Keep us updated.

I realized finally that I do it to amuse myself and fortunately others get it. but sometimes i see the look on the leaders faces...oh well!
