My Dream

I guess y'all know Trish and I are giving a workshop Friday morning on how to be a successful unpublished writer. Well, I guess I'm more anxious about it than I thought. Last night I dreamed we gave the workshop on The Tonight Show, and I was only able to give one segment of mine, and I was pacing back and forth the entire time, and all my notes were RAMBLING. When I saw a tape of the show I couldn't get over how squeaky my voice was!

Then Oprah had an event in the lobby with a booksigning and what all and she and Jay were asking us when our books were coming out and we had to explain the unpublished bit. (Oprah did say if we weren't published by such-and-such a date, she'd take care of it.) Then Oprah invited us to do her show in conjunction with the booksigning, only she also had a faith healer scheduled and the line of people waiting to see him was long, so it was like, 10:30 and Trish and I hadn't started, and I kept thinking, I'll never get through my bit.

There was one lady in the Oprah audience that was snotty, but most were romance writers, including Dr. Deb and Pam Morsi!

Kendra, when is your workshop??

Trish, I liked that part, too!

I hope we have an audience. The dh asked if I'd practiced. I said, "Honey, I'm a teacher." He swears it's different. What do y'all think?

Thanks, Toni! Wish you were going!
