You Heard It Here: Hollywood Anniversary — 12 Comments

  1. Great story Dee J.! I was a huge fan of Rosanne’s stand up too. Let’s see…when did someone want something from me I wasn’t sure I could deliver? Um, my editor, every time I get edits? I freak, then I freeze, then I sit down and do the darn edits. 😉

    • Hi Sam,
      Thanks… and LOL. I totally understand that dilemma!! I think I do the same thing. And I probably have the same look on my face too. That wide-eyed, what-the-hell-is-this? face.

    • Hi Charlene,
      Yes, cool and terrifying! Haha. I wonder if all authors feel the same way about starting a new book or tackling edits. It may come with the territory!

  2. What a great retro photograph. I think I dressed like that once upon a time. : ) Yep, I often question myself and my skills, then I buckle down and do it anyway. The fear is usually worse than the result.

    • Hi Robena,
      I think most of us dressed like at one point or another. LOL. Yep, you hit the nail on the head. It’s the panic before you just sit down and do it. The fear is definitely worse than the actual job, I think.

  3. Well, if Roseanne never came after you to get you in a headlock, then her routine probably went over well. Plus, I suspect she ran it by a few other people too. What an honor.

    As for something expected of me and my not being sure I could deliver – how about parenthood!

    • Hi Lynne,
      Yeah… that headlock thing… that’s another story. Saving that one. LOL. And parenthood!!! OMG! How true is that? I think most people share that uncertainty, most especially the first time around!

    • Hi Leigh,
      Thank you! Glad they’re entertaining! I feel like I’m running out of the really good ones. LOL. May have to enlist some of my set friends for some war stories. LOL.

  4. Yes, I’ve felt that pressure when teaching writing courses to adults and wondering if I’ll help them meet their goals or cause them to feel it’s too hard. Also, the same pressure around publishing. Will my romantic suspense, “Climbing High” influence readers to actually want to climb a mountain and possibly get hurt, or will they absorb the greater message of striving to summit in life? It’s all a guessing game.

    • Hi Madelon,
      I figure we can only do the best we can in any given situation and hope people “get it.” But you’re right. It’s a guessing game.
      Congrats on your romantic suspense!
