11/14/22, “The Crown”

Hi Everyone,

I hope that all is well with you, and that you’ve had some good times and some fun in the last week.

In the mad rush of time toward the holidays now, things seem to be moving fast, with a lot to do and a lot going on. I’ve been writing steadily, and working on a re-write this week, my second draft of a book, refining and correcting it. Thanksgiving is only a week away—-wow!!! already!!! And I hope you have plans that you are comfortable with and happy about. What I love about Thanksgiving is that it is a holiday dedicated to gratitude and giving thanks, and it’s nice to take a moment to do just that. It kind of gets our perspective on life headed in the right direction again (AND the stuffing!!!! The stuffing is my favorite part of the meal. Yum!!!)

This week will be exciting, because I will be on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts, which is always a special treat for me. She is an absolutely wonderful person and I love her as a dear friend, so it will be a treat to be on the show with her!!!

And I gave myself a treat this week—-the 5th Season of The Crown came out on Netflix, and I binge watched it for 2 nights, and had a ball with it. Six hours the first night, and four hours the second. And I had a great time. I really enjoyed this season!!! And it was fun to take two nights off from work.

I hope that all is going well for you!! Have a great week!!!!

love, Danielle

    That is so exciting!!!
    I wish you an excellent show.

    Also, I am reading THE DUCHESS.
    You never cease to amaze me with the diversity of your topics, how well-researched and interesting your books are, and your writing both fluid and rich.
    And how amazing reading you makes me feel.

    Thank you so much.
    I’m grateful for you!

    Ms. Steel, I really enjoyed you this am on GMA talking w/Robin Robert’s. I’m a 66y/o Ret2X’s(20yr USAF,then 20yr Disab.Ret.from Govt.work). I’m
    forever being told that I should write a book based on the true stories I share of my experience, as well as the fictitious short funny stories I’ve written and & read to my Grandchildren. Inside,I feel,know
    want to & believe I’m suppose to write a book(s), but I don’t know how to get started. In my head I have many fictitious and real life crazy experience stories I can verbally tell that can be expanded if written in a book. But, most of the time, If I’m not going to my wife or my med appts.then I’m watching movies on TV. Help!!

    …I forgot to mention that I’m one that listens to books on tape. Due to my narcolepsy,& possibly some sleep apnea, whenever I begin to read a book….not long afterwards
    I’m sleeping.Not so with books on tape.LOL. I just want to get past MY SELF, and begin. I probably need to be anaccountable to someone. Again, any suggestions for this 66y/o.
