Twelve Ways of this Business

If you’ve been running a mile a minute like I have, then you likely feel this way…we need a little humor right this very minute.


I’m here to deliver. (Here’s to hoping this gets a laugh out of you.)

On the second day of Christmas, my agent gave to me…

new platform love & partridge in a contract…wee!

You made me smile, Wendy! And yes, I think we all need a little more humor right now :)

Casey, Fun to fool you, if only for a bit.

Jeanne, Glad it got you laughing.

Cindy, Wow, laughter helps me through this madness big time.

Thanks for swinging by and getting my humor. I had fun with it.

Very clever, Wendy! I happen to think, though, that if a writer were awaiting The Call she wouldn't make it past one or two cell phone rings. =)
