#News – #Sharing – #FunInterview with Marie Sinadjan

My week has gone so completely crazy, I forgot to pass this along to you guys. Marie Sinadjan invited me to do a really fun interview on her blog, and it went live a couple of days ago, with me in a complete fog. I’m hoping if a few of you stop by to take a look, Marie will forgive me for not announcing this sooner, so … if you have a moment, please visit her blog and see what brilliant insights I shared. (It’s possible that “brilliant” is an exaggeration, but I’d love to have some of you check out the interview, anyway. Crossing fingers, here.)

  1. I enjoyed reading your interview. I am encouraged now to keep working on my first novel, for I’m 69 years old and its daunting. I’ve been debating about which publication track to take — traditional or indy — and I tend to agree with you that at the age of 69 I don’t have the time to find an agent, etc. I’m so glad to learn more of your writing journey.

    • Oh, I’m so happy my experiences have encouraged you, Janet! I never thought I could do it, either, but I was wrong, and I’m so glad I persevered!

      If you just put your mind to it and give it all you can, you might surprise yourself … and after all, what’s the worst that can happen? You don’t make it? Well, In the famous words of Dorothy to Scarecrow, “You’re no worse off than you are now,” and in the famous words of … ME … at least you’ll know you gave it your best shot. That counts, big time!

      I predict, however, that you’ll surprise yourself by finishing that book and learning how to self-publish it. And that’s an experience no one can take away from you. I say GO for it, my friend. I’ll be rooting you on! 😊 ❀ 😊

    • Bob Ross and Bill Alexander traveled in the same circles. Both were TV artists, though Bob Ross was not part of the Alexander “stable.” I really enjoyed knowing them both.

      Fun story. I was VERY good friends with TV acrylic artist Brenda Harris (even travelled to events with her now and then), and Bob Ross came to my house to meet with her one afternoon, when she was visiting me. So, I had BOB ROSS in my house, and I can attest to his personality being exactly the way it came across on tv. He was gentle, soft-spoken, quirky, and goofily funny. And when I opened my door to him, he clasped my hand and called me “little lady.” THEN then my parrots started making a racket and he HAD to go out on my back porch to meet them all. He was fascinated, and spent some time asking about each one before coming back inside to “officially” meet with Brenda. Such a fun day for me, and one I’ll never forget!

      There. See what happens when you ask me a question? You get so much more than you ever wanted to know! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

      • I love that story! Our grandchildren got us started on Bob Ross – it’s as much his gentle conversation as the art that they love. I bought one of them a Bob Ross bobble-head that comes out with some of his phrases. And you had him in your house!!

        • I did, indeed, though that was the only time. Several other popular TV artists who were in the Bill Alexander group, I met on various occasions, though. And I got to fly to Seattle with Brenda Harris once for an Alexander Certification Program. Now THAT was truly fun, and I met so many really neat people out there, too. And Brenda remains a friend to this day, though I’ve lost touch with her since closing my FB account. She lives just north of me in Jacksonville, and I really should give her a call. (Making note!!)

          I love that you enjoyed Bob so much. He was sort of hypnotic, wasn’t he? And you couldn’t help but smile as he painted a “happy little tree” that lives “over here by this curvy little road.” πŸ˜€ It’s not the kind of thing that would likely be popular now, but there aren’t too many people who don’t recognize who Bob was, and that says a lot.

    • Aw, thanks so much, Jill. Didn’t mean to make you speechless. Just love what I’m doing these days, and trying to help others see that it’s never too late to follow a dream. I’m glad you enjoyed the interview, and I thank you so much for taking the time to let me know! πŸ˜€ ❀
