Owls: Is an owl an entertainer or a see-er?


About Francis Scott Fitzgerald, his daughter said:

And his daughter, “Scottie” Fitzgerald, said about her parents, “People who live entirely by the fertility of their imaginations are fascinating, brilliant and often charming, but they should be sat next to at dinner parties, not lived with.”

He said, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”

Owls: Are there feminist owls?


I keep telling you, I’m not a feminist.
I grew up an only child on a ranch,
so I drove tractors, learned to ride.
When the truck wouldn’t start, I went to town
for parts. The man behind the counter
told me I couldn’t rebuild a carburetor.
I could: every carburetor on the place. That’s
necessity, not feminism.
I learned to do the books
after my husband left me and the debts
and the children. I shoveled snow and pitched hay
when the hired man didn’t come to work.
I learned how to pull a calf
when the vet was too busy. As I thought,
the cow did most of it herself; they’ve been
birthing alone for ten thousand years. Does
that make them feminists?
It’s not
that I don’t like men; I love them—when I can.
But I’ve stopped counting on them
to change my flats or open my doors.
That’s not feminism; that’s just good sense.

Here are some gems I learned from Blurb:
1 For the self-publisher, consistent behavior is critical; not lofty goals.
2 Since 2006, attention is the currency being traded.
3 When I process a book, I will publish it in 3 forms for 3 different budgets, eg. a graphic novel in hard cover, soft cover and magazine format.
4 Build a platform, develop visibility, credibility, a playful voice, a persona.
5 Primary on your website, begin with what action do you want people to take?
6 Have professionals review your book.
7 Enjoy seeing the Blurb personnel you have met through emails for the last 3 years.
