A Long Dry Spell

book - pencil writing

Life happens and sometimes blogs and writing are sidelined for awhile. Without getting into details, I’ve spent the past several months readjusting to a new season in life that interfered with my writing process. Things went on hold. Some writers push through and write anyway. Others of us, not so much. However, if you love books and love writing, the call of the unwritten stories never completely leaves.

I hope you’ve read wonderful and memorable books while I’ve been away. I’ve read a few myself including The Nightingale, A Gentleman in Moscow, and Max Perkins: Editor of Genius.

It’s good to be back with my fellow writers and readers again.

Happy New Year

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you enjoyed a joyful Christmas with family and friends. A new year always excites me with possibilities. Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know that I’m a list person. Over the years, my lists haven’t become shorter but I have learned to prioritize and accomplish my goals one bite at a time. I still have a tendency towards long lists. I’m just learning to spread them over a longer period of time and experience more success. Of course, one of those lists is books I want to read.

5159MHuBr2L._AA160_Like many of you, I keep a stack of books by my bed and another by my favorite chair. When I’m not writing, I love to read. I’m currently reading The Residence: Inside the Private World of The White House, by Kate Andersen Brower, a former White House press correspondent. She interviewed some of the staff members who keep the White House and the President’s family residence running. Rather than an expose, it is a delightful book about people who serve and take great pride in their jobs.  It has me laughing, smiling, and remembering. It’s a look at real life behind the scenes of government and diplomacy.
