You can see, trying to juggle all these stories, sort of boggles the mind, gives me juggle-boggle disease. There just isn't enough time in a day to work on all of them.
I confess, I completely overlooked this book, since it has been sitting on the sidelines for a few months, and I've been occupied with medical appointments and other stuff. I have a copy floating around to get reactions to it, and its been in the possession of one person for about eight months now. She reads slower than I do, or she is attempting to memorize it. No, she has eye problems, macular degeneration and glaucoma, and its a chore for her to read. And I wouldn't wish that on anybody, bless her heart!
I've been surfing through blogs, looking for interesting reading, and you'll notice that I've added a new blog to my follow list, THE TAINTED ARCHIVE. I'm amazed at all the blogs published. I think I saw on google that there is over a million published. Too many to read in a lifetime, so right now, I'm surfing through some of the Western writers' blogs, and I don't want to build up my follow list so I get bogged down on them, but occasionally I find myself doing just that just reading them. Another reason to delay actually writing something.
