Do you like my Christmas mug?
If we were having coffee, I would have to provide you with a to-go cup of your favorite hot beverage. As we fly out the door to head for church, I am kissing both my daughters good-bye as they travel back to their respective homes.
Today our church celebrates the first Sunday of Advent. Our choir sings a song of hope (I have the alto solo this time!). With choir commitments, we must be at church much earlier over the next few weeks. I love advent season because it heralds in the holidays and all of the joy, Christmas music, lights, general busy-ness, and, oh yes, the celebration of the birth of our Lord.
If we were having coffee, this is where I would tell you that I am going to be blogging a little less frequently over the next few weeks due to the upcoming holidays, travel, and school responsibilities (grading papers, finals, prepping a new class for spring semester). My posting days will continue to be at minimum two days a week, with Thursdays for my leisure feature or Thursday Doors; Friday’s weekly photo challenge, and Sunday’ weekend coffee share.
I am sharing this news with you because I have a book inside me, begging to be written. I am currently exploring the Kindle self-publishing avenue. My first project is a short, non-fiction booklet on leisure education, which may lead to a series of guidebooks. I really need to read, write and research, and focus on getting this done. I have already been in touch with a few bloggers who are in the process of writing and publishing their own books, like Janet Sunderland and Postcards from Kerry.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you, “Isn’t this why we write? to perhaps publish a book?”
Why do you write? Think about this while enjoying your coffee or tea today. Join us over at Part-Time Monster’s blog for our weekly coffee chats–we would all love to have you!
