Writing Journal 3.2.2020: Starting March by getting caught up from the past two weeks

Yeah, I’ve been a bad blogger.


I’ve been getting a lot of stuff caught up IRL. Outside obligations mean that I will basically not be at work for a good portion of this week for various reasons (closing on a new house, new job opportunities, etc.). I’ve had my old house on the market and a ton of people have already seen it, but no takers yet. It’s only been on the market a week.


And I have been writing, this is the truth. It’s been more writing than acting like a writer, but there you go. Trying to reach out to the outside world can seem more like a hassle than it is worth, but I do appreciate anyone reading and checking in. Other than the writing, there hasn’t been much news…


…wait, there is one more thing. Writers on the Avenue, the Muscatine, Iowa writer’s group I have belonged to for years, is releasing a 30th anniversary anthology of past and present writers from the group, and I made a couple of contributions to it. Once I find out when it’s getting released and how to get it, I’ll pass it along to you.


So, I’ll be keeping busy and doing a bit of traveling, so I’m not likely to get in any extra blogs this week. However, I have been keeping up with the journal, so I’m leaving the stats for the last two weeks of February here for your perusal. Enjoy, and best of luck to your writing, whatever it might be.
