C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog


The best e-mail ever...

The best e-mail ever...

The people who have been reading me for a while know that I love lurking on Penelope Trunk's blog. Chicka wrote a new book and I was howling with laughter as soon as I read the first line of my e-mail:

"I know I said I'd never do another book. But I'm good at admitting when I change my mind."

If you read PT, then you get this. If you don't read PT you have no idea of the significance and irony of that statement. Check out her post: "I have a new book. Buy it now."

I keep tabs on a lot of cool writers with RSS and Feedburner feeds so I never miss a Brazen Careerist post by Penelope Trunk. When you finish reading her latest post, hang out and lurk on her blog. I bet she'll surprise you. She's always surprising me. There are not that many writers who can do that (LOL). ;-)

Thanks for the tip. I am always looking for new authors and humor suits me just fine. I will check this out. I could use a good chuckle. Who couldn't?

Penelope is one of the best bloggers out there. I love lurking on her blog and am looking forward to reading her new book. :-)

I'll have to check this out. You and the other commenters have gotten my curiosity up.

Hi Sondra! I've been in the studio obsessing over getting my next album out. I uploaded to the distributor at 4AM. I have been living in the studio and drowning in paperwork for almost a week. Coming up for air... briefly... (LOL).

Carolyn, I have read Penelope's books and like her as an author but lost tons of respect for her twittering about a miscarriage she was having. She made light of it which I thought was highly crude and dissing a human life. JMHO.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago

Gary, I remember that episode. It sparked a huge social media debate that actually got her on the national news to specifically talk about that tweet. People suffering from Aspergers sometimes are socially inept and completely clueless about the ramifications of being blunt. She was bored in a business meeting when she started chatting in Twitter and having experienced the random bluntness of my learning disabled kids that episode reminds me that the disconnect doesn't go away just because one gets older. They simply sometimes get better at masking it into what's expected while continuing to do and say the unexpected...
