I feel like I should feel bad about not blogging as much lately, but the truth is, on the other side of this blank screen, I’ve been having a great time just enjoying and living life. And like all changes, I know that this little dry spell on the blog will soon pass, so I refuse to fret over it.
A few of the things I’m excited about as of late:
I joined a sand volleyball league. Did I ever tell you I used to play in high school? And about my recurring dream, even 10 years later, that I’d try to play again but discover I can no longer serve the ball over the net? (Happy to report it did not come true.) Or how about the story of how writing in a journal helped me learn to serve in the first place? No? I’ll come back to that some other time. Promise.
I’ll be in NYC next week for the Comadres and Compadres Latino Writer’s Conference. And I’ll be meeting with my publisher while I’m in town as well. I’ll be sure to share lots of updates and pictures on my Facebook page.
Today’s my first day volunteering for a local organization that teaches kids creative writing. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time, and I finally realized that even if life doesn’t calm down to give me time, I need to make time for the things that matter.
E and I bought a new car this weekend. So now the question is, “Where to?”
I recently got to see cover concepts for Chasing the Sun and they took my breath away. Can’t share just yet…but I couldn’t help teasing, just a little.
What’s new with you?
