Happy weekend, y’all! Just poppin’ in to say hey and tell you that I did another new thing yesterday…for the first time ever, I guested on a podcast! How wild is that? I was interviewed about 100, along with different aspects of Mental Health, how it affects relationships, and a bit on how my own experiences influenced the process and outcome of my book. It’s just over a half hour, which makes it convenient listening, and you can find it here: The Sarah Fader Podcast: Be Kind To One Another. And I’ve learned something about it through doing it…I need to work on my public speaking skills, which have shamefully eroded over time. Way too many “umms” and “uhhhs” in there for my liking, but as long as you’re not like me and don’t find my voice annoying, it won’t be too much of a problem for ya.
As far as other projects go…while I’m disappointed in myself that I haven’t been able find the right tone yet for one piece and that feels like it’s holding everything else up I’ve got on my plate, I’m happy with a couple of the poems I’ve finished for my current poetry project (the first poems I’ve really been able to sit down comfortably and write since this whole “Hey! I’m a published author now!” thing blew up) and maybe a little more traveling next week will shake loose everything else (and “traveling” is your hint, my friends *wink wink*).
Also, I don’t remember if I mentioned this in my last post but I know I threw it up on my Facebook author page but my first article for Stigma Fighters has been featured on The Good Men Project last week. I’m really grateful for that.
Alright well, it’s the weekend and while there’s still some work to be done, let’s relax a little with a Talking/Listening playlist. Why not?
- Jimmy Eat World, “Hear You Me”
- Cage The Elephant, “In One Ear”
- Texas Is The Reason, “There’s No Way I Can Talk Myself Out Of This One Tonight”
- Jori and The PUSH, “Everyone’s Talking”
- The Beach Boys, “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)”
- Run-DMC, “You Talk Too Much”
- The Monkees, “Listen To The Band”
- Public Enemy, “sPEak!”
- Manchester Orchestra, “Jimmy, He Whispers”
- Rufus & Chaka Khan, “Tell Me Something Good”
- Tracy Bonham, “Tell It To The Sky”
- Thom Yorke, “Hearing Damage”
Ok people from near and far, take that and enjoy the rest of your weekend…there’s a small carnival in the park across the street from me goin’ on that I might check out, and I hope there’s some fun and/or comfort in your lives as well. Go Bills, and peace.
PS: OH!! Don’t forget to hit the “SHOP” button at the top of this post to get yourself a signed copy of 100! I’ll even ship it to you, domestically or internationally…I hear they make greater Trick-or-Treat offerings than apples, bags of pennies, and chestnuts. Jus’ sayin’.
