The job…

I’m going to end this post asking you to tell me about your job and I’m having a giveaway (3 copies of Chasing Christmas Eve) so be sure to comment!

One of the questions I get asked the most is where do I get my ideas. I’ve often quipped that I buy them from a warehouse in Toledo but the truth is I just have ideas floating around in my head. I don’t know why. What I don’t have, at least all the time, is the ability to easily put them to the page. I know it doesn’t seem like it because I get to write on my awesome deck in my pjs and bunny slippers but … writing is hard. Some days more than others. Today is a hard day and I’m trying to write a very funny, very hot scene and all I want to do is call up that warehouse in Toledo and buy it.

Now that I’ve vented, I’d love to hear what you do for a living…

p.s. don’t forget to preorder About That Kiss, coming in Jan!

  1. The job that pays the bills is an executive assistant for a product liability law firm. The job I am trying to get going is a writer. My first book is out, so I’m slowly working my way toward the goal of full time. In the meantime, I’m dealing with auto wrecks.

  2. I like to say I’m the Office Goddess, it sounds much better than Accounts Payable/Receiving clerk. Although, right now I’m also the Accounts Receivable/Credit Manager because we lost the lady who was doing that job so I’ve had to double up on my work load – so much fun. I’m also the office mom, apparently, just kind of transitioned into that over the years.

  3. I’m a high school librarian. Most days the kids make me smile, then every so often it’s like feeding time at the zoo!

    I’m impressed with your variety of scenes, Lucy moments and witty dialogue … I have read almost all your books and the Lucky Harbor series many many times and am still charmed.

    Maybe its time for some cookies to help with inspiration! I’ll have a couple too – ok so really this is just an excuse to have some chocolate, in the name of sisterhood. Lol.

  4. Worked at Hallmark Cards for years. Decided to stay home and watch my grandkids, which led to watching my neices & nephews. Now, I have the luxury to be a home, and read your books!!

  5. I manage a family owned high end pet supply store. Nothing glamorous — but we do have shelter kittens up for adoption. 😽

  6. I manage restaurants in an airport. Every single day is different. I have seen the most outrageous stuff, the sweetest moments and definitely the saddest. I chat with passengers headed to Disney, that just finished their last final, that are trying to make it home before a loved one passes, new grandparents returning home after seeing their new grandchild for the first time and families gathering to wait for the remains of a fallen soldier.

  7. “Officially,” I am a holistic health coach. I actually worked my way up from the bottom – I started out as front desk/receptionist, and now I run my local office and am the head coach for the entire company. On top of that, I take care of my nieces on my 1-2 days off each week during the school year and whenever I have a rare spare second in the summer (when I also volunteer at my old YMCA camp), and I’m an artist. Mostly painting with acrylics, but I’ve done almost everything, including tattoo designs. If I had the time and means to get back into sculpting, I would in a heartbeat.

  8. I’m the Human Resource Manager (Part-Time) at a Bowling Center. The days I’m not working there, I either have fun or do renovation work for friends.

  9. My official title is Manager, Gift Recording. I work for a very large well known university and I work in gifts and records. When you make a donation I see it and make sure it is all a ok, I am also a mom which means I am chief office manager, cook and back up chaufer. My husband is the Dir of IT at their school so he does the main driving. As a side thing I crochet and sell my items through facebook and etsy.
    I just want to sit on the deck in my pjs and slippers 🙂

  10. I’m retired now from a career as a police and fire (911) dispatcher for my city. I’d like to think I saved a life or two over the years but most of the time you never know. Ever day was a new experience.

  11. I’m a college professor. 🙂

    I teach English composition (writing) and sophomore literature (British, American, and drama). While I love helping students (especially the returning adults) to discover their voice and (hopefully) an appreciation for the written word, I don’t love the hours of grading.

  12. I work for the local township and I’m responsible for allocating over 120 fields to organizations for there use thought out the year in every sport.

  13. I work at an animal feed company as a Customer Account Coordinator, which means I input feed orders for feed stores like Tractor Supply and mom and pop stores and for horse and cattle ranches. Then I find trucks to haul it. Fancy I know. I am going back to college to get a degree in Information Technology.
