First Time

I hope all bloggers want to be really clever or witty or wise when they write their first post--and I'm not Lone Captain Insecurity.

Since I want to make this blog about writing (despite a strong, not so hidden talent for digression), I'll just say, I'm at the stage where the characters are controlling my life--my daughter tells me I'm not myself. Yeah, cause I'm about five other people too, right now. I'm distracted, cause I'll suddenly think--my hero, Van, whom I love so much will be more lovable to readers, too, if I show him... If you're also a writer, you'll know this stage. I'm deep in deadline panic.

So, this is short, but I have to focus on turning in the book. Kind of funny. I'm so busy writing, I don't have much time to write about writing. The blog's new. I'll be editing and changing as I go, but I've managed to put up some of the blogs I must compulsively read before I get to work each day, and that's a start.

It's nice to ride in at last--however late--on the blogging wave!

Hi Anna - welcome to blogland!

I'm so happy to know I'll be able to check in and see what you're doing. Like you I'm on a tight deadline right now butI'll hope to have more time to chat soon.

And I promise I'll put up a link just as soon as I get this recalcitrant Greek hero out of my hair

Happy Blogging!

Kate

Kate!

Thanks for the welcome--and for dropping by to post. You know I'm always so glad to hear from you!

I hope your Greek is soon treating you well--mostly cause I can't wait to read him!

So far, blogging has been a treat, thanks to you! :-)

Hey, Julie!

Thanks for stopping by. (I'd forgotten that handsome picture of you and the manly bits!)

Hope you're off having the baby now! :-) As I'm having Internet difficulties, I haven't been able to cruise the Net today. Seriously, I hope you're well!
