The precarious life …

There’s something terribly wrong when you have to try 10 times to remember your password for your blog/Web site. But that’s me and my attempt to renter my blogging life. I’ve been a rotten blogger for more months than I care to acknowledge. Work, life and a whole slew of things got in the way of chatting with the few people I have had the good fortune to engage in the first place.

A writer’s life is a precarious one. On one hand you set up a blog to communicate with others who share the same woes, triumphs and challenges. Yet on the other side of that double edged sword, you can’t blog all day and night because you’d never get any writing done.

So what’s an author/blogger to do? Establish a schedule to blog, whether it’s daily, weekly, biweekly or monthly and stick to it. And, starting now, that’s what I intend to do.

It’s good to be back online, but I have some writing to do—my hope is a few pages or chapters this weekend. But before I log off, I wanted to share a bit of good news. A few days ago, I received a call informing me that I was a finalist in the “Put Your Heart in a Book,” contest for my manuscript, “The Heat Between Us.”

Needless, to say I screamed, and once again, called my critiquing partner. After all she shares in my successes and, every so often, my miseries. I’m very excited and honored, and look forward the October announcement of the winners at the NJRW conference.

In the meantime, it’s back to working on my second book and hopefully, completing it in time to pitch at the conference.

    Hey Nett,

    I will not make it to Slam Jam but Barry and I are cruising with Brenda in April. You will have to tell me all about it when you return. Enjoy the rest of the summer.

      Hey Ree,

      You’ll have to tell me about the cruise! I hate that all the events are around the same time. You too, enjoy what’s left of the summer. It went fast!

Tell me something good!
