Never take a cute dog on a photo shoot

Deborah Kimmett

I was in the city promoting my new comedic essay book; That Which Doesn’t Kill You makes You Funnier.   The secret to being thought of as talented writer is having a good support bra, the kind that gathers boobs from women in other countries. I’m sure a woman in Sweden woke up this morning and wondered where her chest went.   After all that primping and binding the photographer only wanted pictures of me with my dog.

Rule number two in showbiz never bring a rescue Shih Tzu to a photo shoot.  I got Gus from the pound. When I got him he had fleas, so he had been shaved in the back. He looked like Kurt Russell with a reverse mullet: party in the front and business in the back.  Still he’s better than the cat I brought on the last tour.  Cats are like drummers on tour.  They go Tomming around for three days and then get mad when supper’s not on the table.
Tomorrow hot yoga and how I traded in the mutt for the downward dog.

Whether on the stage or on the page, Deb is One Funny Lady.
Saturday, Feb. 18th she will be hosting her Amherst Island Writing Workshop – the last for a while as her workshops are having creating a lot more travel.
“I am hosting one last  “Feel the Love WRITING INTENSIVE. Saturday, Feb. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. And the cost is… (drum roll please)… PAY WHAT YOU CAN.( I know you will be fair and generous.)
Deb come on! Pay What You Can?  WHY?
Because  it’s  LOVE month in February. And much of my writing flourished on magical Amherst Island. This beautiful spot opened up the muse for me, and so I want to give the gift.  I guarantee I can get you writing. Or painting or dancing or just about any other -ing word you can think of.
My workshops generally cost $100 and I offer 30 years of experience as writer, performer, general hambone.
You will build your confidence as a writer, creator, and lover (of words). You can decide what that is worth to you through / registration.
Love begets love. So BRING A FRIEND. And bring another friend…and friends of friends of friends of friends of friends…
There are limited seats available. Reserve yours by emailing (and then pay with paypal-no credit cards-must pay before February 14th)
