Reset Button

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.)


  1. Never be ashamed of posting LOL cat photos.

  2. Hi Myra, it's all good. I don't comment all the time, but I learn something every time I come to your blog. Keep doing what you're doing. You are connectiing...trust me.

    Peace and love,
    Paula R.

  3. *inappropriate joke about connecting here*

    love you.

  4. *pulls up a chair* Looking forward to it :)

  5. You're adorable! No worries -you're a very busy lady!

  6. I love your blog no matter what <3 And I love LOLCats, too...

    Can't wait to read your upcoming posts.


  7. Never tell a bunch of writers you want to know their FEELINGS!! Are you kidding me?! It'd be one hot mess of drama around here. Ha. You're doing a great job in the world of reading/writing/blogging so just keep it up and remember, most of us are drawn to your personality and charisma - regardless of what you post about! :) (Um, AND we want Hourglass updates... and I think when you have free time -yeah right- you should check my FB wall and see what a friend wrote me about reading Hourglass...) :)
