Less blogging leads to more procrastinating

DSC01134You may have noticed – I’ve been blogging a lot less. Or maybe you didn’t notice – eek!

Poetry collection

My original intent was to work less on blogging and more on my poetry collection (for self-publication). Although I have been doing more poetry writing and editing, I’ve not been doing as much as I originally intended.

Procrastination

It’s a scourge. I do more procrastinating every day. Though I am making little dents in my “to do” list.

Blogging

So you may see some repeat blogs (I do want to refresh my content – search engines like that), but it might not be fresh.

Other fabulous blogs

With me not blogging as much, you have more time to check out these fabulous blogs –

Shawn MacKENZIE

Shawn MacKenzie – She’s my editor and is providing loads of great advice on the poetry collection. She SO gets me! Find her blog at MacKenzie’s Dragonsnest. Her Editor’s Corner is especially awesome.

***

Elizabeth Cottrell

Elizabeth H. Cottrell – Find her blogging at Heartspoken, where you will discover wise advice for connecting with God, nature, others, and self. See her new tab for The Nature Store. Elizabeth is also helping me slog through CreateSpace.

***

Linda Boulanger

Linda Boulanger – Wait til you see her book covers! I’m going to tap her when I get my poetry collection together, and I have the artwork done (yes, I’m doing it myself). She creates striking covers! She can design a cover for you – no matter the genre. Check out her site. 

***

pamela wight

Pamela Wight – She writes over at Rough Wighting, a blog of daily living. She’s a relatively new gal pal, and I think we were separated at birth – we are so in sync! Pamela has two published novels and teaches creative writing.

***

Susannah Friis

Susannah Friis – She and her hubs write articles and publish in Brisbane, Australia. Find Susannah at Personally Speaking. She blogs to “explore life in such a way as to enlighten and broaden my own thoughts and perspectives.” She is a breath of fresh air.

***

Vaugh Roycroft

Vaughn Roycroft – He does not blog a lot, but when he does, they are significant. He is a gentleman and a scholar, and he writes darn good blogs. Find Vaughn at Seeking the Inner Ancient.

***
Eboch credit Sonya Sones
Chris Eboch – Funny I didn’t “meet” her until after I moved away from NM – she’s in NM! Chris is a writer of MG, YA, and adult fiction. And she edits too. See her awesome blog at Write Like a Pro!

***

Cyndi Briggs

Cyndi Briggs – She blogs over yonder at The Sophia Project. Her blogs address and tackle serious stuff in a fun, sometimes introspective, way. A joy of a blog.

International Earth Week – by Susannah Friis

This photo was taken at sunset just up the road a few minutes from us. It’s not been changed in any way…that actually was the colour!

Susannah is an aspiring writer who currently owns and runs four community publications with her husband. After aSusannah Pic recent humanitarian aid trip with the organization Destiny Rescue, Susannah joined their volunteer writing team and has also formally become an advocate, speaking at various clubs and groups about the work Destiny Rescue is doing to free girls trapped in the sex slave industry.

When not working, speaking or writing, or mothering her three children, she loves to enjoy a good wine, great friends, delicious food and hearty conversation.

She also likes to look at life sideways and enjoys speculating on the ‘whys’ of how we behave as humans. You can join in the speculation by stopping by her blog here.

This tawny frogmouth (they are not actually owls, as many believe) and his family visit our home often. My husband snapped this photo just near our washing line. The bird stayed there nearly the whole day supervising our laundry 

This was the view from our spa on a weekend away a couple of years ago. Needless to say, we stayed in the spa quite awhile!

Nine year old Lily recently snapped this photo of a water dragon. While this one was at a park, we frequently have them in our yard and around our pool…if we’re quiet enough!

This is a waterfall at Mount Fraser National Park. It’s only about an hour’s drive from home. Beautiful!

The kookaburra! This large male (the males have blue on their wings) sat in this tree quite close to our house for about an hour. As they eat small mammals, among other things, we kept our little dogs inside!

Iluka, east coast in New South Wales, is our favourite family holiday destination. Endless beaches of white sand, crystal clear water and, usually, not a soul in sight.
