Creative Non-Fiction Short Stories. :) Travel, Oldsters, Love, and Compassion.
I guess the headline sounds like something bad showed up at my door (or something good!). 🙂 The interviewer was my former college roommate Karma Chavez, though we didn’t tell too many stories from “back in the day.” 🙂 Rather, I had the chance to spend an hour talking about my book, travel, the blog, and writing on WORT radio, Madison. It was my first ever radio interview and I had a chance to read some of my favorite stories from the book.
I hope you’ll enjoy it on this New Year’s Day! Here’s to looking on the bright side in 2016!
Thank you for your support and readership. I am a very lucky blogger.
The Nice Thing About Strangers on WORT
Interesting just saying
Thank you, Joanne! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to reading your work in 2016!
Was great to hear your voice. A good interview. All the best for 2016!
Isn’t it funny when we’ve gotten to know each other and never heard a single voice? I suppose you read me with a cooler accent. 😀
Happy New Year–
You sounded exactly as I imagined, well spoken and cool.
You’re so awesome, Darlene! 🙂 Thank you!
I loved the interview!
Thank you, Carl! Happy New Year! Any resolutions?
Happy New Year to you, Paige! I do have some resolutions: quit time wasters and read more good stuff (like your writing); exercise EVERY day; work to have 10 new ideas a day, partly to remove my “writer’s block.” How about you?
Oh, I love the 10 new ideas thing. I read about that from James Altucher–trying to find 10 really tough ideas each day. Ten ways to be a better friend, ten classes I could teach, things like that. 🙂 I would like to get in that practice, but at the moment my priorities are exercising again and reading as a priority.
I’m reading “Wings of a Dove” by Henry James to get started. I often struggle to start his books, but then I end up delighted. 🙂
Happy New Year, my friend!
It looks like your 2016 is off to a wonderful start, Paige. Congratulations! It sounds weird, but putting a voice to the words and the thought behind them adds so much depth to your already endearing stories. Very well done interview and book release. Thank you for sharing and best wishes for a very prosperous 2016!
Thanks so kind! Karma and I used to do competitive speech (yes, it’s a real thing), but it has been ages since I’ve read work aloud. This would be a good goal for the new year, I think–to get back in the habit of public speaking. I always feel so ambitious in early January. 😀
Happy New Year, Dave! Thanks for the facebook follow as well.
Very very happy pictures in the snow. I remember playing in the deep and husky/mighty (Lake Erie lake effect) snow of Akron, Ohio as a young child!
