** It was a DIFFERENT Lou! **

Oh wow! I just experienced one of those fabulous "Twilight Zone" moments! ♪♫  Do-do-do-do  ♪♫

In my previous post, I wrote about Lou Grant inspiring me to work harder on my book......

But I just realized, it wasn't Lou Grant.....(or Ed Asner, for that matter).....

It was my publisher, Lou, at High Hill Press!

Oh my gosh!! I feel like it was one of those things that is right in front of you, yet you miss it, because you don't realize IT is what you're looking for!

I am SO doing the Happy Dance....even while sitting ON my office chair.....but as soon as I post this, I'll be dancing standing up......not too long, though. I gotta get back to my book!!

Thank you, Lou!! (and really, shouldn't I still thank the imaginary Lou, as well? I think so!)

The pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together.

Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~ Sharon O'Brien

  5. Hello Becky! I'm catching up on reading blog posts. HA! I loved these two Lou posts. I remember that episode of Mary Tyler Moore very well. Motivation, wherever it comes from is a good thing. :)
