Just a post...

I know that my post is going to have no point when at the time I sit down to write it I think, "Just ramble a bit. The post will come."

How did I do this every day for years?

Then I started thinking about how, even though this is a personal blog, "personal" is a bit of a misnomer. While it is about me, I pick and choose stuff I want to talk about. The one big glaring thing that I don't talk about is my struggle to get published.

I don't talk about that because I don't want it to come back and bite me in the butt. Half the time I read other aspiring writers blogs and I cringe. I cringe at their use of their full name along with every agent they've ever queried and their (nasty/frustrated/irritated) thoughts about them.

Not smart.

So where does that leave me? Not talking about it, that's where.

And at this moment I'm frustrated.


  1. I would not write about it if I were you either. That does not seem smart...

  2. nasty/frustrated/irritated is never really a good idea when naming the people you are directing all that negative energy to. This is not to say that I haven't done it, but it just isn't wise at all.

    Not to mention decidedly un-Christianlike.

    Way to take the high road. And I will lift up a prayer in regards to your getting published.

  3. Aw. I offer my email ears to you, if you so feel like sharing.
    Otherwise, I think it is wise to keep things mum here on your blog.

  4. I think you are doing the right thing in keeping it to yourself. Nothing turns a "not now" to a "never" quite like a "you suck".

  5. I'm lucky to get a post up weekly.

    But,on a different subject . . . my ultrasounds are up in your area (you know, with all those medical buildings) I went too far one day and said . . whoa, Heather lives just downt the block! I so wanted to just drive on in . . .*sigh* but I had a doctor's appointment.
