Monday Mayhem – If this writing thing doesn’t work out

Posted on Nov 13, 2017 by Maggie Wells   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

It’s my birthday week! Yay!

Okay, it doesn’t really mean much other than I get to use it as an excuse to eat stuff and say, “Hey, it’s my birthday week!” but I plan to use it.

In case you were looking for an update on our trip to New York City, Julie Evelyn Joyce covered it here. It’s pretty comprehensive and I really don’t have much to add, since she ganked most of my pictures for it. So much fun.

Fodder got me a special present for my birthday. Apparently, I’m hard to shop for when it comes to anything beyond and Amazon gift card (and I really don’t understand why he feels compelled to go beyond them, but anyhoo…), but he came across something on eBay and knew I had to have it.

He was right.

Meet my 1976 Smith Corona Super G, Ghia

She’s a super sporty portable manual brought to life by Karmann Ghia designers Alejandro do Tomaso and Tom Tjaarda. Not only is she in great working condition, but she is still sleek and beautiful. Even the carrying case is racy!

So, yeah, if this novelist bit doesn’t pan out, I can always fall back on writing poetry in parks, like we saw last weekend.

I just need to brush up on my poetry skills…and stop rhyming things with Nantucket…

Have a great week, everyone. Eat cake and blame it on me!

Oh! And I’m participating in a multi-author contest this week! Join me, Brinda Berry, Juno Rushdan, and Aliza Mann for a chance to win prizes from each author and be entered to win a $50 amazon gift card!

    Consider me ganking all your pictures to be the most sincere of compliments. 😉 Your new typewriter is totally rad! I love the colour! Hope it brings you countless hours of entertainment. Happy birthday week, baby! <3

    Happy birthday week to you! That is a pretty nifty present. I’d gladly take a Mags poem.

    Yeah, how much does commissioned poetry cost? Do you charge by the word? I’m totally fine if something rhymes with “Nantucket” too, especially if it’s typed on your fancy new machine with the racing stripes. (My birthday month is December, btw.) Have a wonderful birthday week and eat ALL the cake!
