poor neglected blog

Dear Blog….
I am sorry that I haven’t been as diligent about posting to you two times a week, which was what I put for my New Year’s Resoluton…and for a while there I was keeping up with it…religiously I would sit here on Wednesdays and Sundays and would update you about my life…and then…well, I overfilled my plate again…with creative and academic pursuits…and with teaching 5 writing-intensive (and therefore grading-intensive) classes…sorry.
I would tell you that it wouldn’t happen again, that would be more in control of my pursuits…but I don’t believe in those kinds of lies…I do know that my plate gets significantly less full in about 2 weeks…when my doctorate quarter is over. I can also tell you that next quarter, I am not taking a class, am teaching 3 classes instead of 5…and will have more time for things I want to focus on…like you…I enjoy sharing my thoughts on writing with you…and it’s always nice to know someone’s listening. I promise to visit more often, and get back to my twice a week habit…it kept me focused on things and I need focus.
I promise to play with you more. Thanks for waiting.



  1. You’re not alone with that problem. I’ve been going slightly, well no, absolutely crazy because of formatting. Who would think it could go so wrong for so long?

    Good to see you posting again.

    • It’s good to be back…and it’s good to see you back as well!!!! We’ll get through this process, right???? The writing part is so easy…the rest of this is complicated. I can believe how much frustration formatting is giving you!!!

  2. Oops! Disappeared again.

    Moved on to a new project, then discovered we have to do our own marketing – ugh!
    We came too late to the writing world, gone are the days when publishers nurtured their writers.

  3. Yea, I need to do more self-promoting as well…it’s hard because that is just one more thing that takes me away from the creating part…which is really my favorite.
