My latest video, in which I talk about Harry Potter, social anxiety, and Brigid Kemmerer (an interesting mix), is now up for viewing! https://youtu.be/ry1uMdIpU1U

EadieB @Butterflyamore Loved your video and your hair today! I've never read Harry Potter either but my husband has read all the books. His birthday is July 30th and that was around the time a new one would come out so that was his birthday present all those years. I have watched all the movies and loved them so to now read the books would be redundant for me and I don't really read fantasy. I'm glad you enjoyed them. 6mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I have a bit of a social anxiety too but different from yours. I used to be very active in my community. President of the Woman's Club of Perkasie and I was involved in local politics and became to first woman president of Perkasie Borough Council which was probably the worst experience of my entire life and I was involved for 12 years. I now cannot stand to be around negative and complaining people. I food shop in another town. 6mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Anyway glad you were able to meet the author and I wouldn't feel bad about thinking you are weird as I find myself very weird and I think everyone is a bit weird in their own right. I have come to the point in my life that I really don't care anymore what people think about me. I be my weird self and if they don't like it then they can move on. I would never think you lacked some self confidence because the videos don't show it. 6mo

Attended the Rochester Writer‘s Conference and met some amazing authors, agent, and creative writers! Gets me motivated to edit my pirate novel. GET IT DONE is the motto I came away with, cause you can't edit what you don't have.

ValerieAndBooks Good advice! And what a great experience to have. 3y
Lmstraubie You can do this!!! 3y
CrowCAH @Lmstraubie thank you! Part of the motivation is sharing my progress with all of you, so then you guys can get excited and keep me accountable for finishing, so then you can read it! 3y

Lmstraubie @CrowCAH Do you have a working title yet?? 3y
Suet624 Do it!!! 3y
CrowCAH @Lmstraubie Rubies Pierce My Heart, first book in the Renegade trilogy. Of course, this could change, but that's what I've been calling it. 3y
CrowCAH @Suet624 thank you; I'm workin' it! 😁 3y
JazzFeathers Cool! You're writing a pirate novel? What's the story about? Love your green composition ;) 3y
Lmstraubie @CrowCAH Excellent!!! I can't wait to read it! ☺ 3y
CrowCAH @Lmstraubie still about a couple years out, since I'm just starting the first round of edits, but it will be worth the wait! 😊 3y
CrowCAH @JazzFeathers a Golden Age of Piracy adventure romance novel, about a pirate captain taking an English girl aboard as his debt payment. It's Beauty and the Beast meets Pirates of the Caribbean. She will become stronger and learn to fight with a cutlass and he will soften a bit and remember his proper English ways. 3y
flip58 Crowcah Sounds excellent. Finish it. 3y
CrowCAH @flip58 will do! Thanks for the support 😊 3y
Lmstraubie @CrowCAH That will give me time to work on my #TBR pile 😅😉 3y
