Creating a bio

This morning at Starbucks I met with Carol from my critique group. Not only is she writing a really interesting book, but she is probably the smartest computer person I know in Washington. My sister, Nina and her husband, Laurent, are the smartest ones in Oregon, but they are off paddling some winding river. Thankfully Carol is a generous woman because she did not hesitate when I sent out the cry for help. She helped me write my bio and took some pictures of me to send in to the contest. I chose a picture that kind of looks like a drivers license picture. I always think those are the most flattering of me.

My sister, Dale, is an artist and has to write Bios for her art shows. I had no idea how difficult it is. It is "tooting your own horn", something we are taught not to do as children.

And now I understand Dale's "what should I wear to the opening" anxiety, also. There is a lot of stress involved in such things.

Congratulations to Dale Blodget for her opening this week in Boston. And happy birthday.
