Loose Ends and Odds and Ends


I hate “springing ahead” and losing an hour of sleep, especially on a busy weekend when we were traveling. Today when we got back home I tried to catch up on e-mail. Writer’s Digest has a free internet version of their journal with great articles for would be writers which I would recommend to everyone. One article today was on Improving Your Blog. Among the suggestions: blog minimally one time per week, with a goal of daily. I’m not sure how I could blog on that level and make it meaningful while still writing anything of significance. But I can try for once a week, at least for now while I am betwixt and between books, and don’t have editing to do yet. I am not a patient waiter so while I am not chewing my fingernails off, or nagging those who are reviewing my book, not hearing is anxiety producing. I thought the book was so good they wouldn’t be able to put it down and would be instantly calling with rave reviews…so much for that hope! But I am working to stay convinced of the quality of The Call and not let my edginess inch me into a self-critical place. So blogging can be a tension reducer, I guess. Or a goad to start Book Two! Or just the impetus to finally begin the memoire/essay I need to start soon on my 9 11 experience…if I really want it published! I definitely need to tie a knot and hang on until my reviewers get back to me….and tie together the loose ends of my writing while I am at it!
