My shoulders are FINALLY , feeling better. I just can’t believe it took months to get an appointment, had to go thru 3 doctors.
This was a simple injection, nothing serious, but with all the doctors becoming members of the bigger hospital corporations, they had numerous restrictions as to who could do what. Long story short , what my family doctor used to do now had to be done by an orthopedic doctor. Quite frustrating to say the least .
Well looks like I will run a bit late on the book, but hopefully not alot. Its pretty simple, I wrote it, read it, trashed it!
I read it and agreed with some of the others who had read excerpts , it wasn’t me and it wasn’t what I set out to do .
My goal in this was to do HOW and not so much about , there are dozens of books out there that tell you all about . It’s the HOW thing, that was what was missing, so back to the legal pad and go again. I think we have it. In each chapter , which is based on one specific thing, like water-bourn stains, or food safe finishes. Each has its own identity. Then comes the part I didn’t have. At the end of each chapter we now have ” Cuttin To The Chase” , this is where I tell you exactly what I personally do , and how and with what. Just my standard method of operation, issue’s you can have and avoiding them , and correcting if needed.
Now in case you didn’t know , I’m not what one would consider a good typist, speller , and my punctuation and grammar , well they a bit lacking as well. Not to worry , I have the ” Girls” , so all is good.
I answered a question on some forum, someone emailed me and ask if I would , so I did. In the course of the conversation someone made the commented I was writing the book.
Next thing I know , I get this scathing private message from the guy who had started the thread, just blasting me. How could I possibly expect anyone to buy something I wrote, on running sentences , commas and so forth. He was very quick to tell me he would not be purchasing my book, and what a joke I was. I think I wrote about 10 lines answering the initial question. I feel sure I just typed it, and let it go without much concern over the punctuation.
I politely responded that my career had not involved alot of need for me to be proficient at writing. I then simply told him, that throughout my life one lesson I had learned , is that we all have flaws and weaknesses , but we also have strengths. The smart person, recognizes that and we find others who strengths are our weaknesses, this is how we learn, this is how we progress. Thank God I have the Girls !!!!!
I guess however, the girls got tired of having to decipher my hand writing. I mean when Tung Oil becomes Tuna Oil , you may have a problem . I could just see some guy heading to the grocery store, and buying out the shelf of tuna, to finish his entertainment center. Maybe not a good thing.So I get that Dragon ,speech recognition software, it does pretty good. My punctuation isn’t much better nor the grammar, but at least you can read the words, and it does spell a bit better than I. You do have to be careful , words like , it , hit, bit and anything else that is similar it can confuse until it gets used to you. If you quickly say ” I hit it” , you need to be sure that’s what it typed, but it does work.
Have a great day and be safe!
