After landing with Capt Goldbach.
I BECAME the senior pilot creative multimedia lecturer in the Limerick School of art & Design during the 28 Days of Writing because I needed a clear and distinct job title. Many of my colleagues append their names with initials but I believe I can lead with a distinct title instead.
The title is a call to action. It's something I've been considering while reading educators who are using February for 28 days of writing simultaneously as I was engrossed in the annual #FeBOOary audio challenge. My call to action concerns flying back into the cockpit by generating revenue that will help offset the cost of flying a small aircraft around Ireland.
Flying costs time and money. For a decade of my working life, flying paid me to travel across the globe. I carried all sorts of cargo and personnel onto six different continents as an senior pilot in the United States Air Force. I miss those days more than ever before because people in a very active C-141 Starlifter Group share photos and stories from places I've been through the years.I've been reading different stories every day in February 2015 and I've been bitten by the flying bug.
I can dovetail an idea into or append a twist after nearly every story I read in the Facebook group. So I've started scraping snippets into Scrivener as starting points. With a little better time management, I'll create 28 different flying stories during the month of May. And when I do, I'll update this blog post with the link where readers can download the collection as a Kindle file.
