Totally, completely, utterly bored with my book review site. Am I still reading? Yes! Did I finish "People of the Mist"? Yes! Was it good? You betcha!
So, what's the problem?
Good question. I'm not entirely sure I have the answer. In part, I think I'm over connected. Too many social sites (Twitter, FB, Google+, Blogger, Linked In, Book Blogs...the list goes on) to keep up on. I'm also missing some of the 'Blogger Love" from days past. Do I go out and seek new Blogger fans? Eh...kinda. It takes quite a bit of work; and while I'm not opposed to hard work, the returns as of late have been *dismal*.
Am I giving up reviewing? Nope. I actually have the sequel to "A Scottish Ferry Tale" (SCOTLAND BY STARLIGHT) to review in early January; and I've heard it is far more engaging than the first book. I just think I need to take a break from reviewing and until that day--and have a little fun.
Here goes nothing:
I'm reading VANITY FAIR. My favorite line thus far?
"The other boys would fag out and give him balls at Cricket."
I'm completely juvenile in every possible way.
What else? Well, I wrote two short stories. Both are available for download (FREE, Peeps. What have you got to lose?) from Lulu press. Here's the linky-links: MISSING and RED VELVET
One is dark; the other is sweet; both are short (600 words) and free. Maybe I'll find some love there?
Lastly, I've promised my poor publisher a very large chunk of work (the brave man wants to publish chunks of my personal blog as an e-book) by the end of the weekend--and let's just say my work ethic has suffered along with my ego as of late. Can you say, "Crunch Time!" ???
What about you all? Anybody else out there in the blogger slump of 2011?
Keep me posted. After all, misery loves company.
