RevGals Friday Five: Labor Day – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Aug 292008
 

Singing Owl says, This is a Friday Five about LABOR. All can play. Put down that hammer, that spoon, that rolling pin, that rake, that pen, that commentary, that lexicon, and let’s have some fun.

1. Tell us about the worst job you ever had.

Working at the call center for The Disney Catalog. I have repressed most of the memories and refuse to dig them out of the dark hole they are in.

2. Tell us about the best job you ever had.

I’ve had two: writing and pastoring. Right now I’m just writing, but there are ample opportunities to serve at my church, and they do have lay pastors and preachers.

3. Tell us what you would do if you could do absolutely anything (employment related) with no financial or other restrictions.

I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to do what I want to do. I’ve always wanted to be a full-time writer, and I have been for the last two years. Woot!

4. Did you get a break from labor this summer? If so, what was it and if not, what are you gonna do about it?

Yes, I took mini-breaks here and there, exploring Chicago and getting together with friends. My mom was also up earlier this month, and we had a lot of fun.

5. What will change regarding your work as summer morphs into fall? Are you anticipating or dreading?

I’m anticipating it. Fall is my favorite time of year, and my creativity soars. I should get lots of writing done. Plus I will be working on my novel, and I know Fall will give me all sorts of wonderful creativity for that.

  1. wow, I didn’t know you were writing a novel! I am looking forward to fall to.

  2. The novel is on hold right now until I finish the book proposal for Career Women of the Bible. My self-imposed deadline for the proposal is a week from today, so hopefully in a couple of weeks, I’ll go back to the novel.

  3. Chicago in the Fall is completely inspiring, so I’m sure that you’ll have creativity shooting out of your fingers and onto your keyboard! Nice play!

  4. Thank you SpiritMists.

  5. Thanks for playing Deepa and letting me know.

  6. Hi Shawna,
    Is it ok if I put a link to your career women of the bible series on my one of my posts? I think it is something that every Christian Feminist needs to read…

  7. Oops sorry, I messed up the tags on the previous comment.

  8. Oh yes! Please link to it. I’d love to spread it around.
