What's Up Buttercup?

What's Up Buttercup?

That's what Sally K. & David L. Hanson want to know as a challenge this month: The BEST Challenge to be Your Best ! It made me think of The Champs, "What's Up Buttercup". Don't remember The Champs? They are best known for TEQUILA! (Which may be my next stop.)

The challenge is to tell about a new "habit" you are making in 2019 that will make a difference for you and others for the better (I think). Hope I got that right.

My challenge may sound self centered on the surface but I know it is not. I and my son Timmothy have joined a club called Publish or Parish. I've posted about it twice now. My first post was about the first meeting we attended on 2/09/2019. The second post was about my first two pages of writing that I brought to the club to be critiqued.

The club has been around for a while and it's purpose is to help writers, published and hopeful, learn from each other how to be better at what we do and share information on getting published and circulated.

The two pages I share in my second post are after yesterdays meeting and believe me they are greatly improved after the help of others in the club. Likewise I'd like to think others there benefited from Timmothy and I making suggested changes to the works we had read. Also with Timmothy being a published author we were able to help others by sharing information on the process that we went through.

Morning Bob.

I'm sure Timmothy will have more books to hit the market.  As far as I'm concerned, you have what will be a famous author in the making.

Good morning Bob "RealMan" Timm - this is helpful to others and nothing wrong with getting some help yourself.  I look forward to great works from each of you.

Thank you Endre Barath, Jr. at this point the most important thing to me is to get Timmothy set up to succeed. With his autism I don't see anyone else taking up his cause as a writer. It takes a lot of patience to lay the ground work. Timmothy is focused on writing and has NO clue on how to get it out there. He already has a mountain of material and we just have not yet found the key to get it out there.

He certainly has the material James Dray . We could probably put three more books out there tomorrow but we just don't know how to get a publisher to take notice.

Thanks Grant Schneider we are trying to get the attention of someone who will get this out there nationally. There seems to be a real monopoly in publishing. The big two want 50% of the retail price and one of those two also want you to pay the shipping to their facility. After printing and such that leaves nothing for the artist.

Thank you Sheila Anderson it's something both Timmothy and I really enjoy. I don't really care if mine gets published but I'd sure like to see Timmothy on bookstore shelves across the USA.

Hi Bob - we often learn while teaching or sharing.  And that's a good thing for everyone.

I sure do (learn as I teach) Michael Jacobs . I do a ton of prep before I get in front of a crowd and "enlighten" them.
