I’ve certainly killed my resolution to blog once a week. What I thought would be a two—maybe three—week hiatus while my husband and I traveled down to Florida and then took a cruise has turned into a much longer time period. In part the reason is I’m not sure what I want to blog about. I feel it needs to be something helpful to others, otherwise why should I expect people to come read my blogs? The other part (reason I haven’t blogged) is just plain laziness. Or maybe it’s that I’m having too much fun in the sun.
Also, as many of you know, I have a problem with being told I need to have a media presence in order to sell books (or even get published). I understand the logic of that, especially nowadays with so many writers able to be “published” via e-books, but really, all I want to do is write.
Anyway, I have been writing and will be doing so for the next month. I want to bring a FINISHED ms with me to Sleuthfest the end of February and to do so I need to stay off the social media and concentrate on that ms. So if you don’t see many postings from me on Facebook or Twitter or any of the lists I’m on, or if I miss a week or two of blogging, I hope you’ll understand that it’s because I’m working on my ms. (I am getting close to the end.)
Meanwhile, I am serious hoping nothing happens to my husband, because if he should disappear or die by any means other than natural, I’m in big trouble. If the police go through my computer to see what I’ve been looking up and reading lately, they’ll certainly take me away in cuffs. For example, in the last month, these are the subject lines that have appeared in my email box: Sniping and weaponry information; How to electrocute your husband without getting caught; Blood in drain; Cleaning blood up; Buried alive?; Murder gone wrong.
Yep, I’d be in big trouble if anything happens to him.
Love you, Bill.
