Writer's Bio Block.

I have to submit a short bio for the agency website but I think I've hit a wall. Here's what I have so far:

"Jessica Martin was born Oprah Gail Winfrey on January 29, 1954. Open-Eyed Sneeze is her first book."

I lifted that first part from the Oprah Wikipedia page. She won't mind.

I think it should be something like this:

Jessica Martin was born on _________ in ___________. Like most existentialists believe, she is the culmination of many building block experiences that form the whole of her meaning. What those blocks of experience are is something she has yet to figure out. If this does not answer your questions, send her a postcard and she will write in very small letters.

I hope your book gets published...I don't know how much YOU get, dollar wise, from a first book but I bet after a byzillion are sold you can get an apartment of your own!!

Also I mught be able to answere your question about your life not following THE PLAN. When in December were you born...some of us are Ophucans, not Saggitarians...long story...check it out...what with the earth wobbling and all and even the Zodiac is not safe.

Anonymous 1: I'm sending you the most sincere internet high five right now. That was freaking awesome.

Anonymous 2/Tina E: I love Kasia's parents, so any friend of Kasia's mom... Thanks very much for the kind comment! As far as my sign goes, I was born in late November, so I think I'm more closely related to a turkey than anything in the zodiac. Which also explains a lot. Enjoy those beautiful mountains!

Meredith: You've done it. Thank you.
