Bogging commitment

A Blog is a bit like a child - it needs attention.

I have been a bit neglectful of my child lately and as a result it is not really happy. All of its friends are sulking and have decided to head off and find new playmates. So thinking about it, I decided that it needed a bit of TLC.

Life has been busy - of course it has - when is life not busy.  I have been paying attention to household chores, family issues, and all the boring stuff which of course means that the wonderful life-inspiring things like writing and blogging have taken a back seat.

So here is a little something to share:

I am currently reading five books:

Jack Canfield: 'The Success Principals' - inspiring and funny, thoughtful and thought-provoking
Sonia Choquette: 'The Intuitive Spark' - a great book on helping you live with Intuition
The Cambridge Introduciton to Jane Austen - I am doing a course next semester on Jane at University
George R.R. Martin: 'A Clash of Kings' - Book 2 of Game of Thrones

and I am just starting George Orwell: 'Nineteen Eighty-four' (Matthew's set book for English)

Now why would anyone read so many books at once. Well, I love reading and having such an inspirational variety to choose from means that whatever my moment is, I have a selection to delve into.

and of course I am writing:  Editing book one and doing re-writes (almost complete)

Writing short stories for oracle cards

Writing articles for friends

and now back to writing for my Blog

So that is where I am at and of course I am enjoying our delightful late Autumn / early Winter weather of cold mornings and clear blue skies - heaven and bliss.

Oh yes, and the buzzer on the washing machine has just called, so have to head off and hang up the washing.

Last thought to share - my stats have just shown that I have had over 10 000 page views - wow! Thank you all!

Welcome back again !!!!!!. Such a buzy bee flitting between books and more books and more books, I actually think you just love words, no matter what form they take on, ie blogging, and so on. Even my computer went on strike because there was nothing to read

Excellent to hear you're going to be tending to your virtual child Beverly. I've had a few times on this trip where it's a chore to blog, but I push through it and blog anyways. I'll be making yet another book at the end of this year, this trip is a must print adventure! Some nights I have to post two posts at once, but no biggie, it's getting there.

I'm hoping to visit blogs more often, the best part is though tomorrow I'll be actually visiting! I already know what my blog will be tomorrow! :-)

Cheers!
