How many hats can a person wear?

  We tend to wear many hats throughout our lives. I happen to wear about four currently – a wife, a mother, a teacher, and an author. At any given moment, any hat could be tossed on my head regardless of whether  I’m already wearing one or two or not. Sound familiar?

Well, school has officially ended for the year and I’ve put away that hat for 8 weeks, except for the few days of training I need to attend. I can now devote my full attention to my writing. I can be the full-time author I love to be. I can escape the hum drum and create fantastical worlds and memorable characters in stories that hopefully linger in the minds of my fans.

Uh oh, now that I think about it, as an author, I wear even more hats! I’m a promoter. I’m a marketer. I’m a publisher (for some of my work). I’m a sales representative. Why, even the man up there in the corner doesn’t wear as many hats as I!

At some point, something’s gotta give. But until I’m in the publishing world a bit longer, it will  all have to fall on my shoulders, alone. I gladly do it, too. I love writing stories for you. I love hearing how they touch your heart, or make your pulse race, or inspire you. I love reading the excited posts when packages make it to your hands and how possessive you are over “the angel boys”. I love hosting those virtual games and how much fun we have. I wouldn’t trade any of this for the world! So bring it on! I’m ready for those hats like nobody’s business!

Psst… anybody out there wanna wear a hat or two? I can pay you  with free books! Ha ha ha… 😉

    Hi again, no kidding, we sure wear many hats. Mine are mostly associated with family now that I no longer work. You mentioned that you might need help balancing all the hats that you wear. Since I am disabled and my life is spent mostly reading, I would be honored to help you out, as long as you are sure that the hats are “nit” free. After all, you did mention the word “school” and we all know how lice love living in hats that have been to school!
    Just kidding of course, not, but if you need help with proof reading or sharing any other hat that could be worn while relaxing in a wheelchair, I would be thrilled to give you a hand or two. As long as you return them when you are done with them. Ok, time to stop, I haven’t slept enough and my sillies have escaped, again. It’s rather embarrassing at my age to still suffer from escaping silliness but I guess life could be worse! ( it could be escaping sexiness, OMG, how funny)
