Today is about the adjustments we make when something new comes into our lives. For me it’s a refrigerator and a blog.
A refrigerator? Really? We got a new one thanks to a Black Friday sale, and it replaces one that had to be close to 30 years old, one we’ve used for over 20 years. Honestly, it was held together with duct tape inside, but it ran and I knew just what I could stuff into it and how to arrange the contents. Now I have a brand, shiny new one that’s actually larger with more door storage space, but it takes up more floor space and has fewer racks. So now I have to learn how not to bump my head on the freezer door handle that sticks out farther than the old one did, and I’ve got to figure out how to arrange the interior to maximize the use of space. It’s a work in progress.
A blog? I’ve known for some time that as a romance author, I should have a blog, but the learning curve seemed intimidating, so I put it off. Instead I had help setting up my website first. Then I stretched and did my Goodreads page myself to gain a little confidence. Now I’m opening this blog to see what I can make of it and I hope to make some new friends. In the meantime, the design is a work in progress.
I plan to talk about books that have made an impression on me, profile friends whose writing I admire, and talk about writing and all its pleasures and challenges. Please stop by and see what’s up from time to time.
