Where to begin?
I have much to say about work in America, and the very most to say about American Newspapers, like say the one I spent 20 years working for. You will never guess who owned it, and this won’t be genre by a long shot for me.
I seem to have many people from China reading my blog. Well since you don’t like what Disney did with Mulan perhaps you might like my Heart of Clouds better. Personally I grew up on the original Walt Disney and all the great films that came out of Hollywood at that time, saw when Disney had built the original Disneyland here in California.
So Nanowrimo is on the horizon once again and it helps to have deadlines, like we used to in the newspaper industry. I’ll just give you a sneak peak about what it’s been like in American companies, no? In this little shorty I wrote once called Human Resources. It’s at my old blog, and I can’t believe I wrote that back in 2009. I did. https://valentinebonnaire.com/2009/03/09/human-resources-a-short-story/
That is where I will begin the book, and we’ll just go from there. What it will be about is how women were treated by corporations here in America, in the years 1981 to 2001. Many of the characters you are about to meet have died, so when you see them as characters, they will be UNIVERSAL as writers like myself grew up on the finest Literary writers there are.
Do universal people share universal traits?
Oh hell, yes.
You know it.
Anyway, I’m sick of the selfish greedy bastard who owns the multibillionaire “outlet” that sells books so I didn’t put my Heart of Clouds anyplace near him. NOPE. You can buy a copy of it here and learn something of American life for yourselves.
$3.99 in American dollars is 6.84 in your yuan. That seems right.
Did I tell you that one of my bosses sold the printing press we had to China in the late 80’s?
It seems to me we all saw Tianamen Square on TV in those years.
Here is your easily translatable Wikipedia on all that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989_Tiananmen_Square_protests
Let’s see if China is willing to read an American book. I need to work on the screenplay but it is too hot here right now, so hot we can’t even think. So here you are: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/heart-of-clouds-adrienne-wilson/1118229068?ean=2940148168928
In the meantime, I just bought some fab yarn from Scheepjes, which is made over in your country. At least it has cotton in it, and the colors are gorgeous.
I let you sample some of my short stories for free, but I should like to sell my kid’s book. It’s going to bring TONS of hope to the children of the world, it really will.
Going to make something really gorgeous with that yarn. This! https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dhistoire-naturelle-scheepjes-cal-2020
(this is actually a test to see if I will get paid for my book).
