Excuses for not blogging:
1) I'm under contract and I have to behave. I will. I must. When I'm under contract I understandably feel less free, and that's really the fun of blogging. Just letting it all out. Now I question and second guess everything I write (like this!). No fun. I tend to lean toward Twitter and Facebook simply because I feel less exposed and the format is much less formal. It doesn't feel as permanent, and I don't feel the need to be as professional.
2) I'm working on a second memoir. Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm not ready to go into full writing mode since I want to enjoy the last days of fall, but I'm working. Really.
3) I'm still having neck issues, so the less time I spend on the computer the better.
I don't want to be one of those writers who steps away from her blog only to reappear two months before a book release, suddenly blogging like crazy with one goal in mind: sell the book. I've always blogged as a way to share and gripe. It's therapy for me, but I'm trying very hard to be professional. Not easy for me. BE ADULT. BE ADULT.
On a personal note, I'm now ordained so if you'd like for me to officiate at your wedding, let me know! If you'd like the wedding to be held at my studio/prairie church, it can be arranged. Really.
