Almosta Blog

I sat down to blog tonight and nothing happened.  A blank page just kept staring back at me.  I checked a few other blogs; no ideas sprang to mind.  Next came Facebook, zero again.  I read a few news stories; some stirred strong feelings, but still no blog ideas. 

It's not like nothing has been happening lately.  I was shocked and saddened by the murder of Susan Powell's little boys.  There's plenty I could say, but it's been said by others and I don't use that kind of language.  Just thinking about Josh Powell and his creepy father makes my blood boil and I really don't want to go into that tonight. 

I talked about politics last week so I'll refrain from saying anything more along that line.  That's another area where I have plenty of strong opinions, but I'll leave it at that for now except for one thing; if you're not registered to vote, get registered.  If you or family members are in the Service, on missions, or away from home, request absentee ballots.  

I could blog about my new book, Heirs of Southbridge, but I already did that and right now I'm playing a waiting game for the printed copies to appear and the e-reader copy to appear on Amazon.  Did I mention it will be released early in March and it is now available for pre-order at several bookstores?  I'll get the first chapter up on my web site and linked here to see if I can tempt readers in the very near future.  There's also an ego satisfying waiting list at several libraries. In the meantime I'm busy with the rewrite for the book after this one--no title yet--and not even a hint when it will be released, but I do have an acceptance for it. 

There are two weddings and half a dozen birthdays coming up in my family over the next few weeks.  I'll probably have plenty to say about some of those events, hopefully a few pictures too, at a later date. 

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm tired; my knees hurt, it's late, and I don't have anything to say that's more important than sleep.  Good night all.

Some days are like that-no ideas rolling forth. Go rest your mind and body and the good words somehow find their way to the surface. Keep smiling Jennie!

Hey, you still posted! Well done. Sometimes even we writerly types lack inspiration.
