I created this post just for you–members of NAMW.  After the June 18, 2010 Members-Only Teleseminar, let me know what steps you’ll take to further build your name to attract more fans (before or after publication).

Remember to click “submit comment” after you have composed yours. When I receive your comment, I will add your name to this post and “tag” you (you’ll know what this means after the teleseminar).

“USE WHAT YOU KNOW TO BUILD FAME:  Fun & Simple Steps for Memoir Writers”

  • Understand the need to build one’s name/fame in today’s publishing arena.

April is National Poetry Month but every day is poetry.  When I listen to songs, I tend to remember the lyrics before I can remember the melodies.  Commercials hook me when I hear poetry in them.

Here are poets I pay attention to.  They all wear many brilliant hats.

  • Yolande Barial, founder of Your Words Project.  You just have to meet Yolande and hear her poetry, her spoken word.  Please add audio to your blog.  http://yolandebarial.wordpress.com/

    My hat off to you, Martha, Joan, Deborah, Yolande, Maxine!

    Sincerely,

    Teresa

    In response to Ms. Motherwell’s request to provide a list of 3-5 talking points that I plan to discuss with Linda Joy Myers during the NAMW Members-Only teleseminar:

    Many Chinese people (especially my generation and preceding ones) don’t like the number 4 because the Chinese word for “four” (in Cantonese, pronounced saay) sounds like the word for “dead” and “death.”

     

    I like the number 4 – 4 legs to hold up the table I write on; 4 wheels to keep my vehicle on roads; 4 seasons; 4 compass directions; 4 parts in the Chinese word for “love”; 4 letters in the English word for “love”; 4 colleagues working on some of my projects; The Four Agreements by Don Miguel   Ruiz   http://www.miguelruiz.com/

    Love Made of Heart book and Love Made of Heart gift items at Asian Heritage Street Celebration

    Below is a great article by Angela Pang for Asian Week:

    “100,000 People Gather to Celebrate APA Heritage”
    By: Angela Pang
    The brisk air and wind could not scare away the masses, as tens of thousands came out to San Francisco’s Civic Center and Little Saigon neighborhood for the 6th Annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration on Saturday May 15, 2010. Over 160 booths ranging from arts and crafts, community, and nonprofits, lined Larkin Street from Grove to Ellis Streets.

    The fair, organized by the AsianWeek Foundation, was packed with nonstop attraction and many firsts this year – including a Mah Jong section, a Wine and Jazz Area, and a balut eating contest.

    Also, for first time in AHSC history, the San Francisco Consulates General of Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore in the spirit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) collaboration, jointly participated in the festival, hosting a pavilion that featured their countries’ respective cuisine, arts and craft, tourism and trade.
    The crowd, estimated at 100,000 throughout the day, munched on delicious Korean tacos, BBQ, lumpia, and cupcakes, while others could be seen sipping from their commemorative souvenir wine glasses as they scoped out the numerous arts and crafts booths. The most popular item of the day, without a doubt, were the furry Panda hats, which could be seen on fairgoers of all ages and ethnicities.

    The fair commenced with an energetic lion dance and a dazzling display of ethnic attire.

    A much buzzed about exhibit – the giant inflatable 20 feet long Super Colon, presented by the California Colon Cancer Control Program, did not disappoint. Many eagerly strolled in to get a up-close look at healthy colon tissue and various stages of colon cancer. The display was part of a comprehensive health section that also featured hepatitis B screenings and education, liver cancer awareness, HIV rapid testing, body fat screenings, asthma screenings, blood pressure checks, and the chance for people to register to become bone marrow/stem cell donors.


    ABC 7 Anchor Alan Wang, who is chronically infected with hepatitis B, spoke to attendees about the importance of getting screened for the disease and seeking appropriate medical care if diagnosed with HBV. California Pacific Medical Center and San Francisco Hep B Free screened approximately 200 people for Hep B which affects 1 in 10 Asian and Pacific Islanders.

    Fresh off their tour recent Japan tour with Lady Gaga, the adorable boys of Far*East Movement all sporting shades, had hundreds of screaming fans crowding the Civic Center stage, bobbing their heads and pumping their fists in the air as they performed a handful of songs, including their hit, “Girls on the Dance Floor.”

    “The festival keeps getting bigger and more successful each year.,” said Supervisor Eric Mar. “It is doing a great job of helping revitalize the Little Saigon and Civic Center area.”

    Mar also commended the AHSC for their school fundraising program, which provides prizes and administrative support for San Francisco students and school groups to sell raffle tickets, with all proceeds returned to participating schools

    A big smash hit of the day, was the Balut Eating Contest sponsored by Mama Sitas and the Filipino America Arts Exposition. Hundreds watched nine contestants all clad in bright orange Lola Sitas aprons, quickly crack their eggs and gobble away.

    Ultimately Mike Marcelo (pictured right) a student from the University of San Francisco School of Law, won the epic chow down and said he hoped the contest helped dispel any misconceptions about this Filipino cultural delicacy which is also shared by the Vietnamese and other South East Asians.

    Two veteran crowd pleasers also returned to the fair – a display of over 60 modern J-Cars and high-end European Sports cars, along with Muay Thai Kickboxing matches throughout the afternoon.

    The annual event stresses the diversity of the Asian Pacific American community with representation from all ethnicities performing live on stage, and offers a huge selection of arts and crafts, plus food. In six years, the celebration has become the country’s largest assemblage of Asian Americans.

    The celebration was co-presented by the California Pacific Medical Center and Subaru of America.

    SAVE THE DATE:
    The 7th Annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration will take place Saturday May 21, 2011 at Civic Center/Little Saigon.
