Stories, Success and Anything Else You Guys Want To Chat About #Author’sCorner #BusinessCorner #Tip #NewsNuggets #ReadingWithTheAuthors #PoetryPlace #LinkOfTheMonth

This message is going to my blog, my Facebook and to both my groups.io groups because there are some on one who aren’t on the other and some who are on all and I want everyone to be part of the discussion, so have fun!

*Note be sure to read all the way to the end for my special announcement about my books and where you can find them on sale!

Hey! You! Guys!

Does anyone remember what makes that opening famous?

Yeah… Yeah… I know I’m showing my age, but…

Well, Anyhoo! It’s Saturday, and some persons, including me are finding groups.io a bit wonky and so I’m here, making lemonade out of the lemons of my tech life. LOL.

So, this thread has every topic listed and this means anything goes. Just reply to this post wherever you’re reading from and talk about anything you wish. Advertise something, let us know what you’re up to, reading, just anything.

What am I doing today, besides making the best of annoying situations? Well, I’ve been reading my latest book, Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved my Life Second Edition via way of the Kindle for PC app and Alexa. Why? You ask. Well, first of all I was using it to learn how to navigate the apps on my Laptop. Then, I realized what an awesome opportunity it was to hear my book read in that way and so I started listening to hear how I’d done with things like dialog flow and lots of other stuff that is missed when reading through a manuscript via other formats. I’ve also been having a bit of writer’s block concerning the next book in the trilogy and so I thought this might shake my muse awake. I’m happy to report it’s working.

What else am I up to? Well, I’m putting the Sips of Wine from the Grapevine post together but it may be Sunday before this goes out because I have a couple things I need assistance with and Claire is having a weekend off so my Sunday will be her Monday and so I may wait just so I have the Sips as tasty as can be. I mean you guys provide great work and I want it to live up to its standard. Right?

So, today, I’m thinking I might do what I planned to do tomorrow and do tomorrow what I planned today. Confused yet? Good. I hate facing confusion and chaos alone. LOL.

So, I’m shutting up now, and leaving the conversation to you!

Keep it going even if you don’t come upon it until after Saturday is gone.

Have a great day, and remember it’s always up to you to make it that way, so make it a great one today!

  1. Reblogged this on Plaisted Publishing and commented:

    Wanted to share over here with Claire’s blogger pals too! Thanks for reading guys. Please feel free to join the conversation.

  2. I’ve had a busy day – I am currently engaged in destroying the Clutter Dragon that invaded my office over the past couple of years. It happens slowly and eventually one day comes when you really see it clearly – and you just have to stop whatever you are doing and go after that demon-dragon. I wrote a blog post about what I am doing and it is on my Saturday Stopover on my blog at: http://www.lyndalambert.com

    I spent several hours in the office space working and tearing apart. I’ll continue with it tomorrow. Let’s see, on Monday, I will be doing a special program on arts and crafts with a group via the phone. I will do a second meeting with that same group on April 14 and that one will be on writing. April 14 is also my 60th wedding anniversary with my husband – Bob.

    The final thing from today is that I finished reading The War of the Worlds, and if you have never read that classic, please just read it as it comes along in the book. One thing you do not want to do it to read the ending – because it is absolutely stunning – and I would never want to spoil the surprise. I seldom read a book like this – After I finished reading it – I started reading _The Confessions” (there are 13 of them) by Augustine – a fourth century philosopher and bishop. This will be my third time to read these 13 books – this year. I don’t know why but I keep returning to these books – because there is so much – so much to hold onto – so much to discover – so much to contemplate – so much brilliance. It makes me realize the depth of thought that this mad had in the fourth century – it’s a humbling experience to read his work.

    Finally, my revision of my book _Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage_ is at DLD Books – so perhaps in the next few months it might appear as a real book to hold in the hands. It will be about twice the size of the first edition – will have a new name – and will cover work from 1988 to the present. This was much murch more difficult to do that writing a new book from scratch. I actually destroyed the formatting of the first book that was in 3 parts and the new book will be in 5 parts. First book is by time periods – this book will be sectioned off by themes.

    1. Good morning Lynda.

      I’m glad to hear from you. I forgot all about sharing your blog post yesterday, as I got caught up in working on trying to fix what was going on with groups.io and so I’m very glad you posted the link here. I hope you’ll pop over to the GV group and share there as well since some don’t follow the blog.

      I’m surprised that DLD Books hasn’t gotten to your book yet. They’ve been turning books out at a rather fast-pace. I hope maybe once the book is done you might consider working with Two Pentacles Publishing to get pictures in the book so that they have the alt text description in the eBook format as that’s their specialty and also they can if you wish help you create a Braille version as well. Wouldn’t it be great to have that magnificent book so accessible for everyone?

      Anyhow, have a magnificent Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Today, I’ve been playing around with a new Braille display I just purchased from Humanware. It works pretty well with my iPhone, but for some reason, it won’t connect with JAWS on my PC. I consulted Casey Mathews of Web Friendly Help, but he was just as puzzled. So, I’ll have to call Humanware and/or Freedom Scientific on Monday. This is quite a let-down, but I’m not going to let it ruin my weekend.

    1. Hi Abbie. Have you tried using NVDA with it? Maybe it would work with that and you could just use NVDA when using it?

      Good luck with Freedom Scientific customer service. They’ve gone rather downhill in the last few months. I’ve become quite disappointed with them.

      1. No, I haven’t tried NVDA yet. I switched last year after trying a demo of JAWS and finding it works better with braille than NVDA does. But if push comes to shove, I may switch back. Thank you for the suggestion.

        1. Hi Abbie. I use both. I keep one set as my default which starts when the computer does, and the other I use as a back up for when things don’t work quite right with the default. You can easily have Casey make it so you can have both on your computer. I’m finding this nice because screen reader software is no longer one size fits all.

          Happy teching.

          1. Well, I already have NVDA on my PC. It hasn’t been updated in a while. So, that would be my first order of business before trying anything with it. I may do that if I can’t get any satisfaction from Freedom Scientific. Thank you.

          2. Good luck.
