A-Z April Challenge; P is for Postcards

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has read, commented, shared and/or “Liked” my posts, A through O, for the A-Z April Challenge. I’ve met a lot of new blog friends these last two weeks, which makes the whole thing well worth tearing my hair out, and trying to lift the alphabet to a new level of weird, interesting, and hopefully, entertaining.

I’m switching it up for P, by giving my writer progress update. It’s an exciting one for me. My priority project, which has sat on the back burner these long months of romance and caregiving and travel, is now in the hands of a reliable editor. More on that later.

Here’s the scoop and a reminder of the project:

Postcards of Action and Hope; Preparation for a Medical Crisis

A Preview Booklet excerpted from Book 2 of “Souvenirs from My Heart; The Patient Patient Advocate

This booklet version is from a portion of my three-part memoir-in-progress. An edited version of this work was first published in serial form, here on my blog site, The Write Place. I have included selected comments from my blog community, using initials only. This booklet is not intended to slam the medical profession, nor will I be singing any inspirational happy songs. My intention is to inform and motivate readers to prepare an emergency medical file for each member of their household; to learn from the lessons my late husband, Paul, and I, learned the hardest way.

I intend to work the kinks out of it over the next few months. It will still have to be formatted for ebook and hard copy distribution. Still many decisions to make and actions to take, but we’re closer! I will probably be asking some of you veteran’s for some advice along the way. Of course, I’ll be sharing the journey, in hopes of helping the next writer in line.

Thank you for your patience,

  2. I think your A-Z Challenge was just that a challenge, but also invigorating. Like you, I love making new writer friends in the blog world. Congratulations on progress with your writing project. Only 10 more to go now, unless you have Q already figured out!

    • Thanks, Marian. I can only wish that I was so organized to have them all done. Nope, none. I did jot ideas on my calendar,,,left my type A personality at the train station and now I am a solid type F for FORGOT to do it! 🙂

  3. I am so very excited for the progress you have made on your publishing journey! Best of luck!

  4. Glad you got back on the track of getting this memoir out there to help people deal with the challenges of fighting a life threatening illness. Sharing Your experiences will do so much good.

    • Thank you, Vickie! Nagging is welcome here, but let’s just say, only on writing and publishing topics? I’m pretty good at nagging myself about everything else 🙂

  5. Beautiful image (as were the images in R). Good for you, Patti. Hope your projects go smoothly. I’m impressed by your productivity.

    • Thank you, Elaine. I can’t believe what an empty place I have since I have no camera to record the amazing (that word again!) finds in my world.
      Trying to keep to the writing, but being pulled to the garden!

We would love to know what your thoughts are!
