good stories

Basic computer skills and a little e-savvy now opens the world to the curious.  The world of blog and social networks share stories and information.

As I am reading a week’s worth of the blogs I follow, I was introduced to a young mother, and literary agent, who is carrying to term, her best friend’s baby.    Then I learned there’s an amazing book about marriage, that’s already sold a million copies, and the publisher thinks is just getting started.  Hmm, might be good research for a romance novelist, since that career path also is lots of work and luck creating good relationships.  Yet, it is also a career considered to be good for readers health, now, or as good as Viagra.

I’ve althe boysso learned my favorite writer’s contest has extended the deadline for submissions, granting me the chance to submit.

Cruising so many posts reminds me I need to become more e-savvy and upgrade my website and blog with cool stuff.  But I also know, it’s all about the book, first and foremost, so it’s time to close the door on my writer’s cave and polish those  last two chapters of the memoir and the first three of my novel.  The techno stuff will wait until after Labor Day.  I won’t close that door too tight either, I have grandsons claiming my energy, by day, and know quieter days will come with the school year.   The road to publishing books takes years, boys are little charmers for only a few.
