I am back! No, I will not bore you (and myself) with an interminable recitation of the reasons why I postponed rolling up my sleeves and completing the start of this blog for writers, for those interested in writing, for readers, and for those–bless ’em–who love and support writers.
Let’s just say, I’ve been busy, and almost all of it good-busy.
Here’s the deal: I have re-read, revised, and improved a number of posts on writing and rejection that I wrote some time ago, and want to post here. I was hoping that I could create on this WP template “tabs”, or sections, and put these four older posts in one section, but at this point, I have not discovered how to do this.
So, I will simply post them, one by one, after this missive. I will continue to search for clever ways to organize this blog, but in the interest of getting it ‘up and running’, I am resorting to the tried and true long, narrow column format of posting, with each post properly tagged, and a tag cloud running in the blog’s margin, creating a quick way to access a particular theme.
Hope you read some of the posts! They are: She Breaks The Rules! Alice Munro and “Some Women”; Writing As Aversion Therapy, Or Buddha Writer, Come Quick!; And That Is What Literary Writing Is All About; and Sail On–The Peculiar Poison Of Seeking Publication.
