Open House at ShiftnShake
I plan very little. It usually works out for me. For example, I never planned on getting married; I’ve been married for 34 years and it only gets better with age. I never planned on having children- and didn’t. I never planned on a career in education either and it has overall been a gratifying and satisfying 21 years of teaching. It may or may not be apparent that I am not much of a planner when it comes to writing either, though I will admit to giving an idea or character some free range in my headspace. Because I don’t plan on jeopardizing that headspace I wear a helmet when it makes sense to do so.
Though it wasn’t plotted or planned, I realize I may have just been through an unplanned blog tour. If you unwittingly were a part of that, no harm, no foul. If you were wittingly a part of that- well, I’ll just say thank you very much. You’re very kind.
Sometimes the best unmade plans turn out better than hoped for. Here’s where I have trod if not toured: on November 24th I was a guest blogger at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo; then the next day Sally Cronin featured After Ever as a new book on the shelves of her Café and Bookstore; and the ever generous Marcia Meara allowed a reblog of that at The Write Stuff. Presently I am featured at Fiona Mcvie’s fun site, authorsinterviews, where you can find out more about me than I myself care to know. Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, they’re likely gathering up a posse to enforce a restraining order against all my unrestrained comments and responses.
Unplanned as it may be, let’s call my good fortune at having been allowed at these generous bloggers’ sites a Blog Tour. Let’s pretend this is another planned stop on the tour, an open house with plenty of tabs and links and archives. Welcome, and please, look around.
And be sure to see the interview at Fiona’s authors interviews .
Some people are writers and don’t even know it
Say shucks I’m just a sometimes some sorta poet
Deny writing like hiding addiction
Despite airing weekly flash fiction
With a third book, maybe someone’s finally ready to show it.
