This week has been nuts. I've not had the time to think about a post for this blog much less actually write one.
This Saturday I'm giving a presentation drawn from the material for the memoir/self-help book I'm working on about being a successful patient. My nerves are frayed. My mind feels like it's frying, not fried. Public speaking is way, way out of my comfort zone. So why am I doing this?
Well, I need to start somewhere getting used to speaking in front of large groups in anticipation of the day I'll be doing readings and signing books. I've begun working on a state arts grant application and one of the requirements is a community component: going out into the community to share my literary art. So more public speaking for sure next year....
In the meantime, life returns to a more normal routine next week so I expect to return to my normal blogwriting routine, too.
Thanks to my loyal readers and their patience!
