So, the Buddhists have this concept called The Middle Path or The Middle Way. It's all about striking a happy balance between a life of sensual indulgence (yummy, but causes indigestion and regrets) and a life of extreme self-denial (puritanical and wholesome, but puh-lease....) The Buddha apparently promoted a happy medium - a little from Column A, a little from Column B, and voila - there you have a happy well-rounded human being.
Anyhoo, my point (and, as Ellen would say, I do have one) is that I've decided to go with Buddha on this one. As many of you now know, I have a job (hurrah!). It is brilliant, but time-consuming and tiring. After a long day at work, I can barely bring myself to do normal things (make dinner, feed the cats, take out the trash) - let alone be creative witty and wonderful enough to write novels AND blog.
But I don't want to give anything up (yeah, that's me to a "T"!). So my new plan is The Middle Way: write a little on weeknights, and use the weekends to blog and get some meaningful writing done.
It will mean I will blog only once or twice a week, but I figure that's OK - unlike my amazing blogger friends in the author blogosphere, I'm lucky if I have even ONE pearl of wisdom each week.
Anyway, I hope you will stop by on Mondays (or anytime through the week) and say hello! I'll be doing most of my blog-stalking on the weekends, so watch out for me then!
