Greetings, friends. Mixing a quote from When Harry Met Sally with a quote from an Emerson, Lake, and Palmer song is about like adding balsamic vinegar to a cake mix (the WHMS is the cake mix...), but I can't think of a better quote for this blog that has gone through many an incarnation since its birth four-and-a-half years ago. For those regulars who followed at the old Blogger site, thank you for your loyalty. For you newcomers, c'mon in--the water's just fine.
I'm going to try to post here at least once a month (two, if I'm really in the zone). I described my blog as one that "chronicles my experiences as a working writer and published author, and discusses the craft of writing and revision." And yet, I was known to occasionally step outside the boundaries and write about turning 40, cheesecake, and the eighties. Not much is going to change, likely, although I'm launching a business as a writing coach, and will occasionally post some "coachy" advice and experiences. Sometimes I'll even self-promote. Other times I'll bring in guest authors. We'll see.
"Oh, and sometimes it's funny." I'll try to maintain that part of the original blog description as well.
In the meantime, I'll never find the right words to convey the true depth of my gratitude and appreciation for your support these last few years. A humble and trite "thank you" will have to suffice.
Enjoy, friends. And here we go again.
I'm an author of commercial women's fiction and a writing instructor. My claim to fame: I can say the alphabet backwards.
