That is me. I am re-emerging from a detour I didn't know I had taken. It started earlier when a Facebook friend posted that his wife had written an e-book and I decided to buy it. Not becauses I'm really interested, but because I'm really supportive that way.
Besides, it was only $1.99.
I had to register with Smashwords and that's when the fun began... I had to go to my email to get the confirmation. WHAT A SHOCK when I saw that I had 3160 unread messages! So I scrolled down & saw that I had not checked messages since April 27.
Over an entire year ago.
What the hell happened?
I truly do not know. I can tell you I've had good intentions. I can assure you I've overloaded myself. But, still. 53 weeks worth? Really?
Well, the good news is I whittled it down to 85 messages in my inbox and I'm posting to my blog. Not how I expected to spend my evening but apparently HOW I needed to. And, I have new followers on Twitter and several friend requests on GoodReads (more neglected social media!).
All in all, all is well.
But, please, I ask of myself, don't let another 53 weeks go by before I do it again.
