I haven’t blogged in so long that WordPress made me log in again. And the reason for my silence is twofold. I’ve been traveling with an icky cold and at the end of eacg day on the road, all I felt like doing was falling into bed.
Now that I’m home, another distraction has taken over: Mom. Yep, it’s the challenge of my generation, sandwiched in between kids who still need us and parents who need us more and more. The past few days have been filled with medical appointments for my mom, who is now living here in town. After an exhausting few weeks on book tour, I came home and immediately got busy taking mom to three different doctors plus the dentist. There were trips to the local hospital for X-rays and blood work. Long waits in the pharmacy for 10 different types of pills. Plus there were trips to the grocery store to keep her refrigerator and pantry stocked.
Honestly, I don’t know when I’ll be able to write the next book. I hardly have time to scrape together lunch. And that means I don’t always get to blog.
But this is simply what life — and family — calls for.
For those of you who are writers, or are thinking about becoming writers, there’s a how-to book coming out, to which I’ve contributed one of the chapters.
THE NEW WRITER’S HANDBOOK. You might find the handbook useful!
