Let’s not ever say a writer’s life is boring, shall we?…


My niece, Amy requested I tell this true story because she thinks it’s one of the funniest she’s ever heard. (Thanks, Amy…your payment will arrive shortly.) This “live action” account of a writer’s life makes me wonder if Shakespeare had a day like this when he penned Comedy Of Errors. Comments are, as always, welcome!! πŸ™‚

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. It’s a true sign of a writer to go through an experience like that and never once say “we could have been killed” but rather, isn’t that a great story? Great story.

  2. Love it! I wish I had a comedy of errors story like that, but even if I did, I’d trip over my words and not make it come out funny at all. Here’s a creative challenge for you: Make your story into a Shakespearean comedy/play! It’d be so funny!

    • Oh Dearest Amyeth! Forever whyfore whouldest thou desireth for my clattering to birth a new Shakesperean vinette? I dare say “nay!” I have no such yearnings for an undertaking such as this. My humblest and deepest apologies.

  3. You didn’t even mention in your Comedy of Errors” that the cops actually found a criminal down the street when neither you nor they even knew there was one!
