Work and family continue to keep me busy this month. So I thought I’d share some of my favorite posts from the blog. These aren’t necessarily the “reader favorites,” but I think they’re good glimpses at the various aspects of me. For newer readers who may not have seem them, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check them out. And maybe long-time followers will enjoy a rerun or two.
How I Got Here Redux recaps two early posts I made in 2011. It describes how I started writing a few years ago. Since the post was written, I’ve decided to shelve Summer at the Crossroads, which features in the post, at least for the foreseeable future. Still, they were good posts that didn’t see too many readers.
This little short piece of fun fiction also didn’t garner many comments or views. It’s by no means great, but I enjoyed writing it.
Who knew this little attempt at haiku would ultimately lead to the Meghan Bode Mysteries?
And just when I thought I’d wrestled one of my writing weaknesses into submission, a reality check bit me in the behind.
If you’re a writer and feeling a bit stuck, you might try out this exercise. If nothing else, it’s good writing practice. And you might also be surprised by what you learn.
I’m glad to say I’m still making progress with this part of my life—and getting compliments, not laughs.
So there we have some posts that I really thought were good insights into me and my writing. I hope you have the time to visit some of them that are either new to you or are ones you enjoyed when they were written. And I also hope your week’s off to a good start.
