i just wanted to say, no, i haven't, but i was feeling a bit off for the last few days, so there was no way i was going to write a blog post... but i did spend a lot of time reading other people's blog posts. now it's 5:45 AM here and rather than sleeping, i thought i'd blog, randomly of course.
** can you tell i get easily bored with my blog headers? i love my new one. i took this picture at a local zoo a few years ago. i think he's gorgeous.
** i'm working on that blog post for my book giveaway and realized that the new header will fit perfectly with what i have to say. God *does* have a sense of humor (after all, he asked me to be a writer and i hate drawing attention to myself).
** i'm going crazy reading all kinds of writing blogs. almost all of the writing bloggers want to be published. i don't. i feel like odd writer out, but i'm ok with that.
** the other day i got an email from an assistant producer for some women's show on Lifetime tv that i'd never heard of. he wanted to contact me about my book because he thought that maybe it would have something interesting in it for his viewers, but when he finally called me, he didn't know anything about my novel. weird. i forgot to ask him how he found me.
when he found out it was a YA fantasy novel, he didn't sound interested in it at all. when my kids heard that he wasn't interested, one of them said, "He wouldn't know a good story if it bit him." i love my kids.
(and i just realized after i posted this, that if he comes here and reads this blog post, he *really* won't want to use my book because now i've insulted him.)
** i'm being way too indecisive about how to give away my book. i need to just make a decision.
** i have 33 followers and i've had over 600 hits on my visit counter. makes me feel like i need to be more responsible about blog posts, and then i think, "nah, i'll just keep blogging like i always have, randomly, because they're reading my blog now and they're ok with me not being responsible."
** i think it's time to go back to bed and see if i can get more sleep.
welcome to my blog
welcome to my blog
i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.
all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...
