A Mile a Minute

You know how sometimes your mind races a mile a minute? That's me today. Its strange that when opportunities are presented it sets your mind into fast motion as to the possibilities. I just started the One Thing list yesterday and already have seven things on it. And it's looking like three of those things may actually come through. Very Nice. And a tribute to the One Thing Everyday concept. Me & Linda should make that into a motivational seminar and a nonfiction book and a class and.......see what I mean?

In other news, I cleaned my office this weekend(most of it) and it seems I have some 300 books to get rid of. Does anyone out there have an idea of what to do with them? At first when I thought about it, it seemed almost sad the amount of work those authors put into these books that I now want to give away. Then I realized that most of them have gone on to bigger and better things, from winning awards to the NYT bestseller list. These were the stepping stones of their careers.

And now, as I look at the pile of manuscripts that cover the top of my desk, I sincerely hope that years from now someone is piling up my old books to give away and thinking, "Gosh she's come a long way!"

Don't be a tease! Can you share what opportunities are opening up to you???? Inquiring minds want to know. As for the books, I donate books to the library each year. They are always happy to get them and they send you a receipt.
