Monday Miscellany

Last week I went to San Francisco to the CBS studios to do an interview on Bay Sunday. It was great to  meet the host, Sydnie Kohara, and the producer, Akilah Bolden-Monifa. And I shared the set with the It Gets Better Project; Michael "Puck" Quinn, Artistic Director for The Blue Man Group; head of MYX TV Miguel Santos and blogger Allyn Hoang.
All kinds of Irresistibly Sweet Things happened at the same time last week. The Interview and then a wonderful Blog Award from Kip Wilson Rechea.

Now who to pass this on to?

Lisa Gail Green is an *IST, so she gets one.

Kelly Hashaway falls into that category too.

Sheri Larson, my ROW80 pard.

Susan Kaye Quinn, of course, another ROW80 writer.

Margo Brendersen who writes anywhere, but mostly at High Altitude and lot since she signed on for ROW80.

I'm also going to send this north to Alaska to Paul. His blog is definitely Irrestible.

Theresa Milstein has to have one of these from me too.

Seven things about moi!

1. I'm a rural bumpkin and I love it.

2. If there's a choice between the ocean and a lake, the ocean wins.

3. I once thought about acting as a career. (Sheesh!)

4. Fish ponds fascinate me. Well, not the ponds, but the fish. What do they "think" about all day down in that water?

5. I'm a hugely field dependent learner--have to force myself to move on without knowing "everything" or I never get anywhere with research.

6. Crosswords are relaxing.

7. Don't ever get me started on a jig saw puzzle, or dinner won't happen.

*Irresistibly Sweet Thing

Next Throes of Thursday will be about TENSION again, but how to get it in dialog. Hope to see you here.


  1. Congrats on the award, C. Lee and thanks for passing it on to me. I appreciate it.

    Wow, you were on T.V.! That's so cool! Do you know if there's a link for us to watch it?

  2. I think they'll archive the show, but not sure when. When I find a link I'll post it. Thanks for asking.

  3. Awwwww thank you!!! You really are sweet. I once thought about acting too. I even did it for a short period. It was a LOT of fun. The only thing close to writing really. But I think writing's where it's at.:D

  4. Thanks for the sweetness!

    And have you ever seen Blue Man Group? They are amazing. #thingstodo #bucketlist

  5. How cool about the interview. Congratulations on the award and thanks for passing it on to me.

    You find crosswords relaxing, while they make me feel stupid, so I give up. My dad likes crosswords too.

    I'll have to return to read Thursday's tension and dialogue.

  6. Congratulations on the award and on the TV show. I can say I know a celebrity. :)

  7. Oh what a wonderful interview! You are so professional but also come across like I'd could easily share life stories with over a cup of tea or two! Hope your ROW80 progress is going well.

  8. Oh and thank you for the award! I wonder the same thing about fish too and yeah - #5 - I can relate.

  9. Yay! You put the interview up! Thanks. You did such a great job. I'm very impressed. I'm taking notes because I have a radio interview coming up next month. I don't have to worry about being seen, but I'm taking tips on speaking.

  10. Wonderful TV interview, Lee. You were very eloquent and didn't seem nervous! (Were you? You looked cool as a cucumber)
    And my son loves jigsaw puzzles and I had to interrupt his puzzle for dinner tonight!

  11. What a nice interview, Lee! Thanks for posting it!

  12. You not only write like a dream, but you are so pretty!

  13. Loved the interview. What a treat. I did act for a awhile, now I think that was just some prep work for my writing.

  14. Congratulations! I am going to check out your book!


  15. Wow, Lee, you did super in this interview. How did you stay so calm? You didn't act nervous at all. You carried yourself well. Very professional, yet you come across as endearing, too. This is a huge feather in your cap, in addition to your book getting published. I really love the title, and since I don't speak Spanish, I never would have guessed that it means fleas! The topic of your novel definitely needs to be addressed as much as possible. High school counselors deal with this all the time, and they can only help so much.

    Congrats on the award, too.

  16. Hi C. Lee! Congrats on landing the interview. I just gave you another thanks/mention for the award and link from my blog to yours. Check it out if you like! Catherine

  17. Congratulations! This is a fabulous interview! I'm glad you posted it. It's great to have been connected through BookBlogs. You should also visit Singapore for our next Asian Festival of Children's content! This is wonderful. =)

  18. aww, i love the way she talks. I MUST GET this book. lovely blog, now following you, i would e honored if u could also check out mine,


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
