Nathalie's Notes

Raising the Hardy Boys

DSCF5730For as long as I can remember I've had the same few professional goals.

Make a living as a writer

Get on Oprah

Get published in a magazine I subscribe to.

Be a columnist

See my books on the Barnes and Noble tables, preferably not the uberdiscount rack.

I'm excited to share with you that this morning I opened my mailbox and there it was: a national trade magazine with my article in it. I think I embarrassed Sam by documenting the moment but, whatever, it was my moment. Had I done the dance of joy right then and there, then we could talk about embarrassment.

Phone's ringing. Better grab it, it could be Oprah.

  1. Congratulations, dear! You celebrate and commemorate and document and dance in your kitchen. Because that’s just what you do when you reach a goal. Hooray for you!

    Nice work kid! I’m so beating you to Oprah though. I’m making up a story about being a crack whore to make my memoir sell so I guess it’s technically cheating. But the only other option is that someone buy the book I’ve been trying to sell for 4 years and I’m guessing that means it’s not a hit.
    So crack whore it is.
