I was up until 2 o'clock this morning watching the Stoker Awards on a webcast. I know you don't care, but I got a kick out of seeing what some of the writers I always liked, looked like. I haven't read any Jeff Strand novels, but he was a pretty good MC. It's too bad that the lectern was left unattended so often; it's a no-no in Toastmasters to leave a lectern unattended at any time, but it happened over and over last evening.
All in all, it was a good broadcast, and I am glad I stayed up until 2 this morning watching it.
I didn't sleep in as much as I could have and should have this morning, but made up for it this afternoon when I did have a nap. Despite all this sleep, and a nice evening meal, I continue to have a headache, so I'll probably turn in soon.
Tomorrow, I drive to my mother's for a few days. I'll probably return to the city on Good Friday. She has a list of things for me to work on, so Newbie and I will be busy.
See you guys tomorrow.
You didn't see the ghosts at the lectern???
My question is, how did Jeff Strand, noted horror novelist, find this humble blog?
I wish I had written more. I really liked you as MC. You kept things moving along at a good pace. You told some good jokes that I hope made the people you were introducing, feel comfortable and welcome.
I loved how you discussed a reality show for writer's, and acted out writing for a moment.
I don't know if you are a full-time writer or not. I don't know what you did for a living before you became a writer. But you have a good future as a MC for such events.
Keep up the great work.
PS I have some of your books, and will take one of them with me to my mother's for my mini vacation this week!
