I had an idea on my way to work today. I decided to go back through my old journals searching for blog ideas. The first one I picked up was from 1998, ten years ago. I had just graduated with my Masters from Birmingham Southern in May of 97 - a degree paid for by my company. Then in December of 97, BellSouth decided to outsource my job to EDS.
What was interesting about the 98 journal is that I kept a record of the books I read the previous year. On the list was:
Atlas Shrugged ~ Ayn Rand
Think and Grow Rich ~ Napoleon Hill
The Art of Exceptional Living ~ Jim Rohn
Double Whammy ~ Carl Haaison
Babbitt ~ Sinclare Lewis
Grapes of Wrath ~ John Steinbeck
Cannery Row ~ John Steinbeck
Sum of All Fears ~ Tom Clancy
Disclosure, Jurassic Park, and Congo ~ Michael Crichton
Brain ~ Robin Cook
Schindler's List ~ Thomas Keneally
Crazy in Alabama ~ Mark Childress
and Washington Goes to War ~ David Brinkley
Not a bad list for someone in graduate school.
.............I found myself reading my journal and not writing so I had to put it down so that I could finish here.
I met with my book editor today to discussed my expectations for my book. I was expecting it to take him several months to get everything in order but he assured me it would not take nearly that long. I'm excited.
