Footnotes is an addendum of sorts to the technical writing, editing, and design work I do under the name FineLines. This blogspace is my playground to share stories already written—stories that might not find their way into a non-technical book that I’m currently writing, stories that have led friends, family, and colleagues to nudge, “You should write a book.”

My playspace doubles as a test site for new content as it weaves its way into this book, which bears the working title, Laid Off: Diary of Despair and Determination. This just might be the only niche about which I can truthfully say, I am a subject matter expert.

Caution: Those of you who know me personally will likely get my sense of humor. Those who don’t know me, well, if I have to explain my humor, then it must not be humorous to you. I encourage you to see that I try not to take myself too seriously and enjoy finding and sharing the humor in the kind of things we all experience that are just not funny at face value. My goal is to entertain you (as well as myself) in my particular style, not to play on your sympathies.

So call this blog experience my pre-booking (with apologies for the bad pun). And thanks for coming along on the journey.

    Hi Paula, I am enjoying this blog. Your book title sounds like it could be the basis of a TV series (a la Outsourced). Who (besides you) would you want for the lead role?

    I look forward to reading more on your blog. I loved your description of your yard work, especially about birds. It is fun to watch them, but their debris can be challenging (grackles, anyone?)
    Take care and I’ll keep reading!
