Blathering

Wdesklady1_1 While the other wenches are brilliant essayists with library shelves groaning under tomes of historical costumes and politics, I have developed the fine art of nattering. My bookshelves might groan, but it’s with the weight of books on everything from Manga to Druids, by way of Mars and black holes, with a right turn through King Arthur and California.  Apparently, I suffer from intellectual ADD.

My blogs tend to reflect my mental meanderings, and for those of you paying attention, you’ll notice that my mind wandered so far today that it didn’t return until evening, too late for my daily readers. 

I will have you note that I worked on creating a new proposal for a really weird book, researched the next historical, and carved my way through several hundred pages of a copyedit on the next contemporary.  I also approved a book cover and answered two tons of email (although not all) and did  a lot of whining.  What I didn’t do was write a blog!

So, I lack focus.  I’m going to apply my lack of focus to creating a dialogue between all of us that should show up, knock wood, this weekend.  We’re still learning how to do the fancy stuff that other blogs use regularly, but we’re all busy and technology does not come easily.

What do you see on other blogs that might be of interest to us wenches? We’re open to suggestions, interests, whatever, although we don’t promise to disguise ourselves as chickens and run rampant through the trees with the monkeys.

  1. I’ll repeat a suggestion I made earlier. How about taking a question from the peanut gallery here and each of you responding to it?

  4. I’m starting to get a real feel for your voices. I read them, line-to-line, without looking at the author until the end (with the exception of Loretta, who posts a picture of her when she was a little girl). I’ve gotten so I can tell the author by the end of the first paragraph.
    Pat, I went to the wrong signing in Atlanta. I wanted Magic Man, but got Small Town Girl . Drat. Now I have to buy one. Good news for you. Not too bad news for me.

  7. I’m so sorry, Cathy! RWA is way too huge to really get organized, but I’m glad you managed to come by anyway.
    I guess we need to do what the other bloggers did this year–have buttons so we can all recognize each other, even in the halls! We have a whole year to think about this… not certain that’s enough time.

  10. Congrats! You just became a real blogger – real bloggers devote most of their blogs to a blog on why they didn’t blog. It’s all kinda mobius. (sp?)
    If you dressed like a chicken and ran through the trees wouldn’t the monkeys eat you?

  13. Ya know, there’s really very little elsewhere that I’d like to see here at WW. One of the reasons I love WW is because there’s so much history content 🙂 And the variety of voices and interests is fanatastic – always something interesting to read. So I say, keep doing what you’re doing.

  16. Pat, you’re already much better at this than I am. Your entries have lots of cool stuff going on. You’ve figured out how to do GRAPHICS and PHOTOS, while I’m doomed by a inhospitable browser.
    At least I’m impressed.:)
