I think I've forgotten how to blog

I have open the page to post at least a dozen times.

I started a post about Cassie being the only dog to bark through more than half of her class at Canine High School. I deleted it. I wanted, and could, connect it to writing but it would take more time that I had to post at the moment.

I started a post about all the things I am have messed up lately and the emotional effect that is having on me. I deleted it. Why bring anyone else into my Eeyore room?

I started a post about the presentation I'm working on about social media and writers. I deleted it. I'm really grateful to the people who have answered my survey (and if you haven't yet, there's still time) but I decided that rather than post about it I would just tell you that I am going to teach an online class about and you can let me know if you want to be notified when that happens.

Which brings me to this post, which is not much of a post, which makes me feel like I have forgotten how to blog.

Oh, Susan, we all have an Eeyore room (although that's the BEST name I've EVER heard for it!), and it's fine to invite us in sometimes.

I for one would LOVE a summary of your survey--not enough to deter ANY of us from taking the online class, but a bit of what you've found out?

I personally would also love to hear more details about how this work-for-hire you're doing goes; the process, etc. I think it would be a huge help to some of us!

Hang in there.

Yes, I plan on giving some feedback from the survey next week, after the presentation.

I'll try to see what I could share about the work-for-hire stuff but the thing is, I don't go looking for it - it finds me. ;)

Susan, you'll blog when the time is right. We are a patient people. Hugs.

Thanks, Jeannine. The trouble with not blogging is that you soon drop off of people's radar. I've already dropped off of some and that's a wee bit frightening.

Sorry you've dropped off some radars. Hard to imagine, but... For the rest of us, I was recently asked to suggest some verse novels, and Hugging the Rock was in the top three.

Good luck balancing it all!

I think I just need to get back on the horse. :)

Thank you so much for recommending my book!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
