Damn pneumonia has given me some time on my hands. It's unlikely I'll work this week and I know I need to take it easy and let my lungs clear. This has given me time to look back. I can't remember when I made this poster, or why, but I was happy to see it again.
Which led me to an older blog of mine. I visited it last night after months and years of dormancy. You may know that I am currently knee deep into writing my second novel. I am plugging along at a rate that I have no idea when it might be finished. I'm not even sure how it might end. When I write I am consumed in a way I totally love. I could write 12, 14 hours a day if I were able to. I know I will finish this book, but that is not the case for some other 'projects' I've begun....
....Which includes my older blog. I titled it Careers and based it on excerpts from a manuscript I put aside after the publisher I was working with was bought out by another publisher who decided that my book would not be in the cards that year.
That is not the only manuscript I've put aside. There is another: my very first. It is a bit of a scientific book, on happiness; who is, who isn't, and why and why not. I had an agent for this book and I had high hopes. But she wanted it to be a "10 easy steps' sing song kind of self help book and I didn't want that. We couldn't agree and after a half dozen revisions of the proposal she would submit to publishers, I withdrew and put it aside.
I keep thinking I will find the time to return to my career book and my happiness book but I haven't. And until this current novel is done, I won't.
But there is the career blog. I looked at it last night and I was surprised that I liked it so much. Still. I'm tempted to start adding to it again. I am not available for career counseling but I may resume posting exercises and chapters from my manuscript. I just may.
Would you have any interest in checking that blog out and giving me your opinion about it?

Thank you in advance and always, whether you mosey over to this other blog or not. I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and visitors from blogging. How many times have I said that? At least a thousand. :^)
