Forgive me, readers... I'm slipping again. For the past 3 years I've posted three times a week, until recently. But my slippage is for a good reason. More than one good reason actually:
1. I'm working really hard on a new novel and also continuing to submit essays for publication.
2. I'm helping my daughter plan her wedding, which is possibly the most important and joyful thing I've ever done.
3. I'm traveling a lot, which I love.
4. I'm participating in (and helping organize) writing workshops and conferences.
All that said, as I plan to leave for a week on the Gulf Coast tomorrow (watch for fun posts from Gulf Shores) I don't want to leave you guys without a fun blog post, so I'm going to point you in the direction of A Good Blog is Hard to Find, and its most recent post, "Hooked on the Oxycondoms," by Lauretta Hannon. I enjoyed meeting Lauretta at the Girlfriend Weekend in Jefferson, Texas, in January. She'll also be a speaker at the Mississippi Writer's Guild's 4th annual conference in Vicksburg, Mississippi, August 6-7.
So enjoy Lauretta's delightful prose today, and hopefully I'll have something new up by Wednesday!
