🏀NCAA-The Virginia Tech Hokies defeated the No. 2 Ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in the ACC Tournament yesterday, 87-80.
🏈NCAA- Georgia’s QB, J.T. Daniels, is visiting Oregon State today. Daniels told sources he won’t make a final decision on transferring until the spring.
🏀NBA- Joel Embiid scored 27 points and had 12 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough as the 76ers lost by 29 to the Nets last night, 129-100. This was also the night marking the return of Ben Simmons.
🎬The Dutchess (2008)- This was a movie starring Keira Knightly, Ralph Fiennes, Haley Atwell, and (my personal favorite) Dominic Copper, who played Jesse Custer in the show Preacher. I just saw this the other night; it was excellent. You know movies are good when they draw a reaction out of you, and I must say, the marriage between the characters played by Knightly and Fiennes was a little infuriating. That’s all I’m saying; check it out!
📗-I just purchased a book yesterday, and the title isn’t really important. When I opened the inside cover and flipped to the Acknowledgements, this “author” gave thanks to someone who contributed knowledge and expertise to her book, an editor, a contributor, collaborator, another editor, and then someone who added detail. (I mean did she even write the book?) I don’t know, that seems like a lot of people.
Also, I wanted to share this. Someone questioned me about being an author recently, they thought writing a book should come later in life after a big accomplishment has been made. And I said to that person, those people who usually come out with books after a successful career in some area, are not writers. Someone writes those books for them. It’s different if your career is writing.
Case in point, if writing is your thing, write away! And a big major shout out to all the true creators out there who’ve found their creative outlet as a writer! Transferring thoughts to paper in a clear and concise way is not easy.
🔥✍Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish went into print yesterday, and I should be receiving my personal copies within four weeks. If it looks good, and I approve, it will be available for purchase a week from then, so even though I still haven’t received that expedited release date yet, I’m going to say sometime in April!
