There are days I have no idea what to write about in my blog. Today is one of those days. If I write about myself, I worry I become the self-absorbed character Betsy Lerner describes in the quote above, a character fault I do not want to possess, nor promote in myself or that of another writer. But, to be fair, in order to be a good marketing writer, blowing one's own horn is essential and a common thread we all weave.
For that reason, today I share the story of Hunter--Hunter is my grandson. He is 2 years old. Once a week, sometimes twice a week, I get to spend time with that little guy. The last time I saw Hunter, this is what we did:
|This is Hunter preparing his lunch specialty-- mini pizzas|
|All pizza needs just the right amount of mozzarella cheese.|
|Pizzas in the oven, Hunter waves a magic hand and keeps a watchful eye.|
|Shhhh. Hunter took a peek at the pizzas. I have no idea why.|
Spending time with grandson, Hunter, teaching him how to make mini pizzas, sharing moments of marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese is like writing. I take it slow. I focus. I am in the moment. Everything is done one step at a time. And of course, it is a labor of love.

Thanks for reading. Now, go write something.
