Homeless Model Writes Memoir on Apple Store Computer
*this is from one of the many other great blogs that I check out daily.......
Macs really do bring out the creativity in people. Seriously.
Take the case of Isobello Jadeco, a homeless fashion model who is currently trying to pitch her memoir, Almost 5'4" to publishers in part based on the story of its creation -- at the Prince Street Apple Store in SoHo. Since it's 250 pages long, that was a lot of window-shopping to put it together.
She told mediabistro's FishbowlNY, which broke the story,
I stood at the Apple Store infront of a 17inch computer the one that I call " mine." I had been going to the store at the time for about 9 months. As I stood in heels for up to 2 hours at a time, my contacts and my mouth would go dry and without a blink of the eye I would pace back and forth from writing about my experiences to DOING the experience and the daily tasks of responding to emails, researching modeling jobs and places to send my comp cards. I was always in a rush running into and out of the Apple Store up to 3 times a day ... to go on meetings, photo shoots, and receive a potential paycheck and then right back to the store, I freelance so every minute in my day counts.
And I thought I lingered over the product in my local Apple Store a bit too much...
