Blogging has been taking a back seat in my life for several months. Not that I don’t want to have more of a presence here, but just because I (1) rarely have a reasonably good thought left in my head that I think would be of interest or (2) just don’t seem to have enough hours in the day. I’ve been making some efforts to streamline and organize my little corner of the world, but I’m not sure how successful I’ve been.
I have three more trips coming up over the next three weeks. I’ll be glad when they’ve come and gone, even though I will enjoy myself while there (one trip is a gathering of Christian writers at a publishing house; one is to lead a Christian women’s retreat; and one is to teach a creativity workshop at a conference). I’ve reached the point where flying doesn’t seem much fun anymore. I am ready to settle in for the winter, hunker down, me and my computer and my space heater in my office, and write without distractions. Of course, that’s ignoring that I have jury duty coming up in early December; that could prove a major distraction!
After church today, I have to prepare a two to three minute "script" for a taped interview later this week where I’ll talk about a book that will come out next year. Oh, goodness. I haven’t a clue!
