One Day At A Time

I am trying to remember to take each day as it comes.  My best laid plans for getting a certain amount of work done...usually doesn't happen because of this thing called life. It has a tendency to get in the way.  No matter what the reason for the delay, I still plug along doing my best.  Sometimes, I am rewarded with a treasure that I didn't even know that I was looking for.

Yesterday, I happened upon a book review by a new friend, James, on Goodreads.  The book was about e-book publishing.  I thought great, if James likes it then I'm sure some of my followers might as well.  James' review of The (almost) Complete DIY Guide to eBook Publishing ran on both Goodreads as well as his blog.  James rated it four out of five and very useful for up and coming authors/writers.  I had one minor disagreement with something he said.  I posted a comment and he agreed that my suggestion was a good one.  So if you would like to learn more, please be sure and see what was said on either Goodreads or James' blog.

My bonus treasure came when I clicked to learn more about the book and its author, Coral Russell.  Her author picture consisted of a t-shirt that said: Eat, Sleep, Read

I started to laugh out loud.  I  had to explain to my friend why I was laughing.  So afterwards, she wanted to know where Coral had gotten the t-shirt.  After a chat with my fellow author (who is a very nice person by the way)  it turns out that Coral isn't wearing the shirt.  It is an image from cafe press' reading section. I will have to warn everyone...this site can be addictive and can lead to serious drain on your wallet and time if you allow it to take over.  

Welcome to Coral and our other new followers.  Hope you have a great one!  

Remember that even though you may not be where you thought you should be or doing what you set out to do.  Life has a way of putting you exactly where you needed to be, doing what you needed to be doing.  I have to admit sometimes, I feel like one of God's strong-willed stubborn characters that is trying to get my own way. Then He has to re-write my scenes from time to time so I will get to the final chapters of my life's story - the way He wants it to be. It can be very humbling. Anybody else ever get that feeling?
