It’s a Writer’s Life

Published March 13, 2020 by rochellewisoff

At first meeting with Kathleen Rodgers, we found we had much in common. Both of us are military wives as well as authors. As life has a way of separating even the best of friends, our writing paths took us in different directions. So it has been such a pleasure to reconnect with her recently. Now we have an agent in common as well–Diane Nine, president of Nine Speakers

Kathleen and me. We connected at first meeting. We found we have a lot in common. (Height isn’t one of them.)

About three weeks ago, in conversation, she asked if I’d ever thought of painting an old typewriter. She thought it would make a great note card for authors. I found the prospect somewhat daunting but decided I had nothing to lose. I’m extremely pleased with the outcome. Even my husband had only “Wow” to say about it. πŸ˜€Β 

NEW!

So intent on promoting the prints and note cards, Kathleen has posted this wonderful, if not head-swelling, article on her blog. CLICK HERE for her side of the story. πŸ˜€

    • Dear Randy (and Gertie)

      You can learn the story behind the typewriter by clicking the link to Kathleeen’s blog. πŸ˜‰ I don’t own the typewriter. I learned to type on a big monster of an IBM electric. My mother taught me because I refused to take secretarial courses in HS. What does an artist need with shorthand? (Come to think of it, what does anyone need with shorthand these days?) At any rate I’m grateful to Mom for her foresight. Thanks to her, I’m not a hunt and peck typist. Just grateful for word and backspace. πŸ˜‰

      Thank you!

      Shalom and a belated Happy Purim,

      Rochelle

  • Dear Rochelle,

    I just realised I had clicked on the link on FB and went to read Kathleen’s blog (where there is nowhere to respond) and then forgot to come back here! It is such a wonderful painting. You have outdone yourself! So glad you were challenged to create this!

    Shalom and lotsa writerly love,

    Dale
