Ack! Ack! Ack!

A meeting for today was rescheduled so I figured I’d go to the library and get some research done. I love the library! I love walking in the snow! Heavenly day ahead! And then I read this on the New York Public Library website:

Due to the severe weather conditions, all units of The New York Public Library will be closed today.

What was my Plan B again?

Oh, I know what I should work on. I’ve been looking for a job, one that would complement my writing and research, and so far I only found one that was even close (didn’t get it). But I just read about someone who writes people’s life histories for them and I thought I could do that. Really really well. Every time I’ve written a book I’ve had family members write me to thank me and tell me that reading what I’d written about their father (mother, sister, brother) told them all this stuff that they’d never known. I could so do this.

One thought on “Ack! Ack! Ack!

  1. Weird … where is Karen’s post which I approved? But yes, I changed the title because I’m applying for a job and who knows how they might feel about my language!
