@belllindsay My pleasure.
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Join C.C. Chapman for a Special Livefyre Q&A Today
@ginidietrich Thank YOU for having me. I'll do my best to swing back and answer any new questions I find.
I appreciate you having me on to talk about the book and everything else.
@Word Ninja You are welcome. It was fun to do this.
@ginidietrich No last questions?
@belllindsay @CC_Chapman I'm working on it!!! ;)
@belllindsay Flew by
@ginidietrich Yes, it was a tough week, but I love how everyone pulled together.
@biggreenpen You are welcome.
@ginidietrich As I type this I have the memorial service for fallen MIT Officer Sean Collier on my television so this has been a nice distraction even though I've been tearing up as I type.
Boston (and all of New England) are a hearty lot. We don't get kicked down very easily so yes we are picking ourselves back up.
The street where the attack happened opened back up today and business is starting back up.
Catching the people behind the acts made moving forward possible for me personally. Until that happened I couldn't focus on almost anything.
#BostonStrong isn't just a hashtag, but it is the way we live our lives. We'll be ok and push forward.
@ginidietrich Yes she does and she wears them for me ever since she found out how fond I am of them.
@EdenSpodek @belllindsay I don't think my parents generation thought about it as much as we do. Who knows....
@ginidietrich @marketingprofs Are you kidding me? Have you seen her boots? She wins instantly.
Plus, I could care less about my shoes :)
@belllindsay Saw someone today say that WebMD is a choose your own adventure for adults. I cracked up laughing for hours. I think it was Matt Ridings, but i could be wrong.
@yvettepistorio I'm being honest. Anyone who tells you all they do is lay golden eggs is LYING!!
@susancellura Yes. I rarely throw anything away that I create.
@belllindsay Hmmm....that isn't anything I've ever thought about before.
Perhaps it is because we as a world are at a time in our lives when everyone feels more connected because we hear about everything around the world. There is more information more than ever so perhaps that motivates us to be better people?
I don't know.....You've got my brain noodling on this now....I need to think about it some more.
Future blog post or podcast perhaps.
@belllindsay Thank you
@jasonkonopinski Great now I'm picturing your face on a panda wearing armor and painted blue face :)
@yvettepistorio I'd tell them that they need to realize it happens to ALL writers.
Some days the words pour out. Others you have to drag them out somehow.
I usually get away from the writing. Go and do something completely different and it recharges.
I've never been able to get into the "I write every day at _____" but I do commit to writing every day and that helps. Some days crap comes out, but it is still writing. Keep doing that.
@ginidietrich Yes, Geoff is a great salesman. You were lucky to have him. Of course let me know how I can help.
