I'm amazed at how much of my life fell through the cracks while I was on this last deadline. Domestic stuff. Social stuff. It's only been a week and I haven't really caught up with friends, but I have gotten a boatload of housework done--not that I'm close to being finished. I've also tackled a few promotional ventures--not that feel like talking about those.
Sunday, I treated myself to a day off the island. I shopped--for myself and for the house--and went to a movie. One of my co-workers at the library was amazed that I'd go to a movie alone. Personally, I love losing myself in a sparsely attended matinee. After months of not seeing a movie in a theater, I picked a winner! IRONMAN.
Loved it. Intelligent, humorous, intense and exciting. Yes!
Tonight I'm joining my movie buddy, Vincent, to see the new Indiana Jones movie. I can't wait!
I've been researching blogs. What makes them effective and such. I read an interesting article in Newsweek. I reviewed my notes from a prominant publishing individual. I know I'm not making the best of this blog. Who cares about my daily life? Seriously. Especially since my daily life is pretty boring.
The best blogs educate, entertain or inspire. That takes energy, creativity, and time. ECT. The three things that I need to channel into my novels. I'm trying to think of a unique spin for this blog, something that wouldn't tax my ECT. Until I do, all I have to offer is the occasional peek into my daily life. *yawn* The only alternative is to give up blogging, which a lot of people seem to be doing.
If you happen to think of something 'unique' or some direction you'd like me to take with this blog, please do let me know. If you don't want to post publicly, you can email me privately at email@example.com
Meanwhile, have a great day and if you haven't seen IRONMAN, do!
