“Oh, with all the inventing you’ve done, you’ll have plenty to talk about,” she said.
That was sarcasm, of course. The only idea I’ve had for an invention is a towel warmer, which I was quickly informed has already been invented. Just as well. I don’t think I would have gotten around to it.
Before the meeting started, I had to sign something saying I wouldn’t share any of the ideas I heard. There are some good ones. In fact, the room was filled with some impressive, interesting people.
The inventors wanted to learn how to get their news into the paper. It’s pretty easy, I explained.
Here’s how it works — for anyone:
Though you’re welcome to send one, there’s no need for a fancy press release.
If you have news you want to share, you can call, e-mail or use old-fashioned mail. I prefer a quick e-mail that briefly states the news and clearly shows me a working phone number I can call for more information.
It’s that simple. Send away!
