Locally published

Soon there will be riding again, I promise

My friend Joan (over at Cowboy and Dexter's Excellent Adventures) encouraged me to submit some of my writing to our local Horse Council publication, and I have done so. Apparently, it was acceptable.

I have yet to get my hands on a printed copy, but my story starts on page 23 and rolls onto page 25. (Which means I got to spread out to more than one page!)

Wonder what I should write about next?

Perhaps balancing the thing that pays the bills (yeah, my job) with the thing that feeds my soul (the horses, of course).

Not that I don't love my job, I just sometimes wish I was a little less important. Okay, not really, but some of you may get where I'm going with that.

Unfortunately, the pragmatist in me realizes the job must be done, the bills must be paid, and Calabar will still love me when I do finally get back to the barn. He may pout--scratch that, he will pout--but he will still love me. As long as there are carrots. And black licorice. Oh, and apples.

Congratulations! You're on the way to big things once you're published.

I reset my password (I think)and will try again.

You'd better get more than one copy of that article.!!

Love, Mom

Just checking to see if I remember my new password. I wrote it down somewhere. Besides, it's always fun to look at the comments. Love, Mom

Here's the link to the Horse Journal!

Scroll down about 2/3 of the way for Jess's article.

If the link doesn't work, it's www.sonomacountyhorsecouncil.org, then click on "Journal", then on the top issue, Winter 2011

It is apparent that the Journal is not quite as web savvy as they could be.

I think I'll post the content of the article on the blog shortly. :)
