I apologize that I have been MIA during the last 6 weeks. I have admittedly been a little distracted. Two weeks ago, my Honey asked me to marry him! I am giddy as a new bride. Wait! I am going to be a new bride. We are all very happy and busy planning a fall wedding.
Planning a wedding, finishing my first novel and keeping all other things in order, I am a trying to get back to life and all of my responsibilities. I have to say I miss my writing community. During my absence, I have been reading about nominations for blogging awards and proud of everyone who announced their nominations. What a great accomplishment.
I started blogging last February as a way to promote my upcoming book and map my journey as a new writer. I struggle with trying to make it interesting and readable. I envy bloggers whose posts seem to drip effortlessly off their fingertips. Every post as interesting and funny as the last one. I am amazed at how they make it look so easy. The last few months have been a great learning experience. I am grateful for all my readers, I love hearing your comments. I am learning a lot from you.
Today, in my email box, I found that I am nominated for the Versatile Blogger and Sunshine Award. I am honored! Am I doing that thing that I envy so much from other writers? I certainly hope so! I do not know where my blogs will bring me. I just hope that somewhere everyone who reads my posts is touched in a positive way. Until then, I will keep blogging, and being me. As the initial excitement of the last two weeks becomes normal, I am getting back to the book. My editor is waiting and my deadline is approaching. Wish me luck.
Thank you Wendy(searchingforthehappiness.wordpress.com) for the great nomination. Your support is very touching.
