I’m working with an illustrator to make my second children’s book about Autism come to life. Now, I am not a sales person, just a writer, but I do have to raise the funds to make this book happen.
Despite the title “The Quiet Bear”, the story is about a little girl with Autism who is trying to find her voice in the biggest city. I don’t want to spoil what happens but I do want to ask for your help.
If you can even pledge $1 it will bring me closer to my $2000 goal.
If you have any questions or have any ideas on how to promote this aside from here and Twitter, I would love to hear your ideas!
Here is the link to my Kickstarter project
It will get better. There is always a silver lining. The cast comes off March 17th. Then the splint, then PT.
Hey it could have been way worse.
Dear Billy Joel,
I rarely get excited about concerts. In fact, as a person with Asperger Syndrome, I’m usually more worried about where my ear plugs are and how I will deal with a sea of people. But your music doesn’t blast my ears, and I grew up listening to your music because my mother wouldn’t have had it any other way and now I’m nothing but grateful for that.
I’ve only been to about three or four concerts before in my almost twenty eight years, but never my choice of music. I was so sad when I went online to buy two tickets to your Fenway show, and your show was already sold out on their site by the time it let me in. I called Fenway and they said there was nothing left.
I have about a million to one chance that your twitter team will see this but… can you please do one more show in the Boston area so more of us, including my family, can have a chance to see you perform?
I am just curious to see how many people still check my blog updates.
Anyone out there?
I need some encouragement.
As I climb this mountain
the taste of silence
like used oxygen
Ripples in and
heaves out in clouds
my calloused fingers
crack like the limestone
crumbling beneath them
and yet I reach higher
with more momentum
Despite the darkness
As I climb this mountain

The job search has become quite a tiring adventure and it has most likely just begun. Train rides. The city.
90+ applications completed/resumes sent out, connected with three staffing firms, and connecting with 300 more people on LinkedIn – the result?
2 interviews … Fingers crossed.
Hoping tomorrow is a better day. I know God has a plan and sometimes it is good to just be still and know that. Because I have no idea what to do other than keep applying and be patient.
Time for sleep.
