In the states, Labor Day marks the last days of summer and back to school days – and fall. Though technically, we still have a couple of weeks before summer ends, the larger picture tells me I’ve got to get moving.
Summer was a whirlwind. My writing got lost in the hectic season. Work was unusually busy for summer, but that’s good I think. Maybe is a positive sign for the future?
I did manage to edit and reformat my remaining cookbooks and they will all go up for sale this fall. Stay tuned.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my creative writing this last week. Was I truly not able to find time to write? Or was I a scaredy cat? Probably a little of both.
Sometimes I worry that I will be the only one who likes my stuff or “gets it.” The purely logical side of my brain tells me there’s a whole bunch of people in this world and surely someone somewhere would like it – but still…the non-rational side shoves itself to the foreground with things like…
- People will read the first paragraph, roll their eyes, and say terrible things (like some of the really nasty things I’ve read on amazon).
- People will say, “Obvious, saw that coming”, “Is this for real?”, “This is just lame.”
And that is scary.
But what if — what if — they say something like…“Nice little read.”
There is only one way to find out. Yes?
