Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
Well I have to say that I feel very optimistic.
Choosing to cut loose from the newspaper may well be the best thing that has happened to me in years.
Today I have four more articles to write on snoring products and then I'm free to work on the book. Huh? Wha?
I havent put a word on paper for the book since my mom took a turn for the worse and passed away in July.
Cathartic to say the least.
I also have made a new friend. I'm a frequenter at www.absoultewrite.com/forums .
I met a local gal there who is the Daily Living editor at a near by but larger newspaper and she has VERY kindly offered to talk with her editor-in-chief about including my column. I cant get over how nice that is. You just cant beat those small town newspaper chicks. teehee
We shall see.

I also got a email from someone claiming to be a relative of Nicole Diar. Nicole is on death row for the arson death of her son. The circumstances of her conviction are sketchy at best and Im very interested in seeing this persons info.

My muse is calling... I'm off.
