It was my great pleasure and good fortune to be invited to be on Write Now with Gayle Heney. I met Gayle at the New England Authors Expo last summer. After the taping date was confirmed, a helpful email arrived with instructions for how to get there, what to wear, where to park…
But back to that ‘what to wear’ part. The part where it mentioned to avoid wearing black because that was the color of the backdrop of the set. Oh, and a collar or a lapel of some sort would be good so there is a place to clip the microphone.
If you want to discover really quickly how much you think “Black! I’ll wear black!” when you are in a dress -up situation, be advised not to wear that color.
I realized pretty quickly that I was, you know, in big trouble. Plus, collars? Lapels? I was bereft of them.
I tortured my friend Sheila with photos of dress and sweater combinations. Right up until a half hour before I left for the studio this morning. In the end, it wasn’t about the clothes at all, because it was about the BOOK. I was getting to talk on TV with a skilled interviewer who had read my book, about my book.
How great is that?
My episode should air in April or May. I will post the link when it’s ready! YAY!
