I’m stuck and changing

I am going through a few big changes here in my life,  and thought I would take the time to share them with both of my readers. First of all, if you are a reader that only comes for my wit and humor (then you are always going away unfulfilled–I’m sorry) this post will be a bit of a change…just a bit.

I am in the process of organizing and changing some things. I am going to try to have a blog schedule which is a bit hard for me. My blogging is usually done after I have witnessed something a bit humorous on the side of the road. I can’t schedule those moments of inspiration or road kill. Oh, speaking of road kill. Now, I’m distracted, back to my serious information.

I have just taken a part-time job outside of my home (its inside though). It is a good position, and about as perfect as it can get for a working mom. I will not stop writing, however. I am also starting a correspondence writing course–getting in touch with my childhood-side and will be writing for children. I am still working through what I write best–or if I can write! I see this as a great opportunity to stretch and learn. I will still blog — but, as I said before, I am going to try to have a regular schedule so both of my readers (okay, all 3 of you) will know when to go to a-muse-ing for some fresh insight or stale oversight.

So, starting next week I should have a new post every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday morning. I do reserve the right to change those days at my whim. I will also plan on posting every Feb. 29th during leap year, and every 3rd Saturday following a thunderstorm in Qatar.

I will do my best to bring you the mediocre writing that you have come to endure, and in return I hope for your enduring endearing comments and devotion (okay, just come around once in awhile).

I am also writing for money in my spare time –and I say that loosely — the money part and well the spare time part too. The “stuck” part in my title — well, I’ve been trying to read 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  I think it will take me 100 years to finish it. Usually, I fly through books, but this one is slow going for me. It is a fascinating book in that Marquez is an incredibly talented and creative writer, but it is also not an easy read for some reason. Anyway, I will continue to read it and hope to gain some momentum. Has anyone else read it and what did you think?

Well, some interesting things are happening all at once and it is terrifying and exciting at the same time–thanks for listening!

    I just started reading Love in the Time of Cholera. Actually, I’m about 1/3 of the way through, and trying to get up the motivation to finish it. Not really my kind of book.

    I hated 100 Years of Servitude…Solitude…whatever. I just didn’t get it and I’ve always assumed that people who have said, “Oh, I just loooved that book,” are pretentious a–holes. But I could be wrong. But I doubt it.

    Whew! I didn’t think to check the previous comments before I submitted mine. Glad no one said they loooved the book. Didn’t mean to insult anyone on the same page, you know?

    Coincidentally, this day falls on February 29th.
