I received a message from a friend on Facebook about the last entry on this blog. It was a nice comment, and I appreciated it. The only real problem is — she was complimenting me on something I’d written over a year ago.
I haven’t written anything here in over a year. A year!
So, what happened? I was still working. Even harder than I was before, truth be told. I was still writing and editing and re-editing and rewriting — again, even more than I was before. I was using Facebook, and was trying to get a handle on Goodreads. I’d tried — and abandoned — Twitter a number of times. I was traveling back and forth across the country, mostly for work. My three legged Border Collie needed a ton of attention, and so did my husband. Oh, and did I mention I was writing? My plate was full, and something had to fall off. Unfortunately, it was this.
When I realized how long it had been since I’d written anything here, I almost thought about letting it go. Just leaving it the way it was (a mess) and quietly kicking it to the curb. However…
I’m not ready to do that. So, over the next few weeks, I’m going to really think about how I want this website to look and what I want to say in it. I will probably be “beta testing” a number of things here, so if you like something I do, please let me know.
After I “make it look pretty and functional” and have decided what I want to talk about, then I’ll start writing in it again. And I think I’ll use some of the advice from Anne R. Allen’s Blog. (borrowed from “Writer Beware” on Facebook. My thanks for the link.) Looks like she knows what she’s talking about.
I think I’m glad to be back. The next few months will tell the tale, though.
