This is a shameless plug for a new Disability Studies book that is coming out in May. Mark Friedman and I have a chapter included, Self-Advocacy: The Emancipation Movement Led by People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. For more information you can take a look at the advance information from the publisher at:
This post is a plug for the 2014 Revolutionary Leaders Webinar Series! It is sponsored by the Tennessee Association of Microboards and Cooperatives, Inc.–an organization I founded in 2001. Information will be shared through 10 consecutive live interactive webinar presentations featuring nationally recognized, inspirational, and Revolutionary Leaders in the disability field.
For more information about the speakers and topics they will discuss, go to www.tnmicroboards.org or click on the link below.
New endeavors have a way of maneuvering themselves through the small fissures and cracks in the status quo walls we build around around our lives. Not to worry–even writer’s block eventually succumbs to the pressure of forward motion.
Chapter one of the new novel found its way onto the page this week-end. Much editing etc etc etc will be needed down the road. But all the writers books say there is no turning back now. Keep going until you find the end of the road. Now that it’s begun, it’s going to be upto the characters to shepherd me along. They have waited for me to join them for far too long.
I know. The share buttons on the website’s pages look huge. The only button I couldn’t find was the “That was easy” button. Cuz figuring out which plugin to use and how to do it wasn’t.
Thinking about murder and mayhem can be dangerous to one’s pocketbook. Tonight I took a break to get a wonderful Banana Foster Ice Cream Cone at Baskin Robbins. I was so preoccupied with thinking about the Prequel’s plot line and new characters to feed it that I didn’t realize I left without my purse. Fortunately the ice cream ladies had taken it into custody and it was safe and sound I went back to retrieve it. It took a lot of willpower to forego a second cone. And, I don’t think there is a place in the plot for a missing pocketbook. But then again…..
After much angst and fretting I surrendered to progress and have transformed my website from its old IWeb platform to WordPress. Is it a blog? Is it a website? Who knows. Two reference books and hours of paging and posting and linking and uploading later, I think I might have gotten a start on the next generation of My Secret Life as a Writer. Stay tuned for more content. When I can extract it from wherever it attached itself back in the good old days.
