Second Story for KC Star

Use what you have

Tonight I’ll be spending my birthday doing what I love—writing. I have a second opportunity to write a story for the Kansas City Star. Last interview was done this morning and I’m ready to start writing.

Surrounded by boxes, my computer at least is set up and ready. I couldn’t find a note pad for the first interview so I used what was at hand for my notes… the Budget Truck rental receipt.

I try never to say no to opportunity, even if I feel unprepared. If we wait for life to be perfect, we will finally be ready when we’re dead. Obviously, that’s too late.
