Blogging is hard

The title of this post is misleading -- it's gotta be really easy to blog about some things. But it has taken me hardly any time to figure out that blogging on somebody else's behalf is hard, especially when you love and care about your subject.

I'm finding myself sifting through things that I might post, and it seems that a great many potential topics might either embarrass Nancy or somebody that Nancy wouldn't wish to embarrass. If I were writing for myself, it'd be easier to judge these things, and I'd be less concerned about the consequences. If somebody's mad at me, so be it, but I'd hate to cause somebody to be mad at Nancy.

Doesn't sound very edgy, huh? That's a problem, because I'm no more interested in coughing up some bland pap than anybody else is in reading it.

Hmmm. Maybe I'll just have to be patient -- not a strength -- and wait for good topics to come to me.

Blogging is easy. Patience is hard.

Thanks, Deb, and hi, Eleanor. Re the signing tour schedule, that's an excellent question. I know that it's not finalized yet, but when it is, I'll make a point of posting it.
