Re: Dedicated to Millie
I didn't realize this thread was still active. I'm glad I spotted it when I did, though, because as Sara mentioned, been working on a book about Millie for the past year. I never thought it would take this long, but I should have known better because work and family tend to knock me off my paths in life, as I'm sure everyone here can relate to.
The pressure is on, with another deadline this Wednesday. Publisher has most of the materials now though. I was feeling good in terms of accomplishing things in the next few weeks, especially with childcare issues coming to an end with Melissa back in school soon, but my brother JUST announced he's getting married...in his backyard...in two weeks...labor day weekend. Despite such short notice, lots of out of state relatives are still coming, including my niece from Germany. Another curve ball to contend with. Just another reminder that life doesn't come to a halt when you're trying to get a book published, lol.
Anyway, back to Millie. I appreciate all the comments. In fact, anytime anyone brings up Millie either here or in conversation, or talks about her as a change agent/mentor/teacher, I find it empowering and currently, motivating. The name of the book is "Nannie Millie", keeping it very simple. It's essentially a photo journey told mostly through captions similar to what I've done here and elsewhere, hopefully as entertaining as it is educational. I'll share more when I know more as many decisions have not been finalized yet. Still a long way off 'til publication, too. Maybe holiday release, yeah hopefully 2009, hehe.
