Today, I'm pushing the reset button.
For the past six months, every post except for two involved author interviews, Hourglass news, or - I am so sad to report - a picture of an LOLCat.
*hangs head in shame*
It's not that I haven't had things to share. I've just had no idea how to share them. There's a lot of *WEIRD* involved with a book release. Put that on top of a deadline on top of wacky family business on top of a dog bite on top of a major life epiphany. (More on the dog bite later. I took pictures. More on the epiphany, too, but without pictures.)
I think most of you visit here because you are readers or writers. (Or because you're my husband, and I forced you.) So if I have a definition/goal for this blog, it would be:
I will talk about reading, writing, and the frequent situations in which my family embarrasses me or I embarrass them. Sometimes I'll post author interviews. Sometimes I'll give things away. But I want my blog to be less about promotion and more about connection. I will tell you how I FEEL about things - sometimes whether you want to know or not - listen to how you FEEL about things (comments, please) and try to answer any FEELINGS/writing/reading questions you ask me.
And I promise to use LOLCats for visual aids only.
(Program note: If you want book updates, you can find Hourglass updates on the Hourglass Blog Page or at Murphy's Law Coffee.)
