Reorganizing things …

Wow! Did this summer get away from me or what? I can’t believe I’m already packing up the trailer to leave Canada for the winter months as I head back to Bequia in less than two weeks. Where has the time gone?

But really, what scares me most about this quicker-than-usual passage of time, is that I didn’t get even half done of what I’d planned to accomplish this summer. I did manage to read a huge number of books, mostly borrowed from the library. But I did not get my novel published (yet) and didn’t do a lot of other things I had hoped to accomplish with my own writing and that of others.

But mainly I fell short on publicizing other authors I’d promised to promote on my blogs, and for that I feel terribly guilty. And I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to all of you, because I won’t be able to get any of this done before I’m settled back on Bequia. I do hope that by the end of Oct. I’ll have managed to get somewhat caught up with those promotions that were promised first earlier in the summer. I’m sorry, but that’s the best I can offer right now. After tomorrow I’ll be travelling to visit friends and don’t know where I will have time or access to internet connections to be able to accomplish much of anything.

So, to those of you who have been patiently waiting to see your promo on Reading Recommendations or this blog, I ask that you be patient a little longer. I’ll get to all of those I have already queued as soon as I can.

    Susan, you, more than anyone else I know, deserves a break. Enjoy the time away from Internetland.

    I looked for a suitable quote…about guilt. Germaine Greer had this to say: “Rescuing women from their burden of unwarranted guilt is going to require ‘educational practices and socializing agents’ even more effective than the ones that have been relentlessly loading female humans with responsibility for other people’s behavior from their earliest childhood.”
    Ease up on yourself, Susan. And because I felt a morsel of guilt that I couldn’t find a funny guilt quote, I dove back into the shallow end of the quote pool and found this Dennis Miller trifle: “Now, I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but guilt is simply God’s way of letting you know that you’re having too good a time.”
    Take care.
    And have a good time.

    Susan, I’ve always been amazed at how much you do get accomplished for your fellow authors. You don’t want to turn into Jack Torrance from The Shining, so give yourself a pat on the back for what you have accomplished and enjoy a cup of tea (red or white?). Lol.

    I love Dali’s preoccupation with watches. Although the museum in Figueres was a bit too much. I’d seen more than enough surreality by the time we left.
    Buen viaje and you must start book three.

    I just read something today, “No one knows what you didn´t get done, they just see what you did get done!” I need to remind myself of that sometimes.
