Fielding Distractions


SoCal rainstorms and SNOW!!! and my (feels-like-95th) birthday have distracted me from completing important tasks since Valentine’s Day (also a distraction), such as wiping puppy noseprints from windows, or filling in gopher holes.

However, I’m not distracted from my creativity–writing, submitting, feeding my brain new books (literary bon bons–see The Library tab).

I also finally discovered Chris The Story Reading Ape’s Blog, which you probably already subscribe to as I’m late to most parties. Chris’ links have given me authors I’m eager to follow and a plethora (understatement) of articles devoted to writing tips. Have I bookmarked any articles yet? Yes–the keepers are easy to recognize.

So as March arrives, I feel as if I’m honoring my 2023 writing goals.

A good feeling, right?

Yours in remembering to slip exercise into any schedule (not hard to do when you have a puppy who’s so high energy, she appears on your birthday cake),
