Hello friends, sorry for long delay but the crazy last days of summer, first days of school, and then a week from hell followed by a weekend from heaven and an illness equal no time to blog. I hope to remedy that soon. Exhaustion: it’s a real danger.
In the meantime, I’m resting a lot, hoping to regain strength to take on all the stuff coming down the pike.
Back in the saddle soon. I promise.
Advice to Aspiring Writers: Even cowgirls get tired.
Or: Drink plenty of fluids.
