Three Things I’ve Learned About Myself Today

I’m working on transcribing my interview with Robin Gerber this afternoon during breaks.  During this process I’ve learned three things:

  1. After 11 years living in Virginia, I still very much sound like someone from Southwest Michigan – no matter what my family or anyone else has to say.
  2. LeeAnn, my youngest sister, and I have the same conversational tones and qualities.  I could hear a lot of her in my voice.
  3. I interrupt way too much and must work on that.  Sorry, Robin!

I’m hoping to post my interview tomorrow if at all possible.  Over the past week I’ve gotten a significant promotion at work (go me!) and then Allison caught a nasty virus.  So, I haven’t had much time until now to really work on this.

Don’t forget that you have an opportunity to receive a free copy of Eleanor vs. Ike!  Simply leave a comment or send me an email.  I’ll hold the drawing for the free copy a week after I post the interview.

I Did It!

I just finished my interview with Robin Gerber, the author or Eleanor vs. Ike. I have never interviewed anyone, let alone an author before. I was very nervous and even had a little trouble sleeping last night. In a small way, it was like waiting for Christmas morning.

It went very well and Robin was quite gracious. I’ve taped everything and plan on transcribing it and writing up the interview this week. I will also be posting my review simultaneously.

Now back to developer training… groan… I’d rather be working on my interview and review!
