Carrie and Today's Blog Inertia, Overturned

I've been sitting at my computer all morning, filling out online health insurance claims, making neat stacks of paperwork, listening to the tinny strains of the Los Angeles Unified School District's hold music and periodically staring at this blank white space wondering what to write. I posted the daisy photo as inspiration because you just never know what'll strike you. As you know, I rarely have blog inertia, but in feeling sort of over-exposed and dry, dry, dry, I've been basically just conjuring up tidbits and observations of late. Offline, I'm working on a short story and -- well -- enough blathering about nothing.

My writer friend Carrie Link of love. and the author of one of my favorite memoirs, Will of God, just heroically rose out of her own self-described blog inertia and posted an amazing review of my mini memoir. You can read it here.

Thank you, Carrie and thank all of you who've downloaded and read this thing. It means the world to me, to use a blog inertia-provoked phrase.



  1. Aren't we all allowed a certain amount of inertia? At least that is what I am telling myself as I sit at my computer reading blogs and wondering if 10AM is too early for a nap.

  2. Downloaded but not read. Not that I haven't wanted to, its just finding the time. Damn kids.

  3. Downloaded it and read it all late one night. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. I've followed your blog for several years - it is the first thing I do when I get home from work - I enjoy your wit, humor, insights, and spot-on political views with a cup of tea each day. It's the best part of my day. Thank you. Wish you were my neighbor out here in the godforsaken Republican burbs of Chicago. Good fortune and blessings to you and your beautiful family.

  4. She did a beautiful review and it was a beautiful post.
    Inertia will flip over to become ertia.
    Love you, babe.

  5. Read and now reviewed. You left me wanting more. Which is what every writer should try to achieve.

    Annie...aka. Ms Maya

  6. i haven't downloaded it yet, though i mean to, but i got stuck because there isn't a paypal option.

  7. Well daisies always make me happy. So you've cheered up at least one person this morning, despite your blog inertia :)

    I've got it too. (inertia.) At least you're working on a short story… what's my excuse?

  8. My blog always suffers when I'm writing fiction, too. But my blog just suffers in general.

  9. I want to buy the book, but don't laugh. I can't find the cord to recharge my e-reader. And I'm not really sure how to download anything. I did a couple of times and it worked by accident and then I tried again and it didn't work. Bahhh!

  10. Love Carrie... Love You... Love your book (which Im still reading) and looking forward to writing a review too over in my corner of "Holland" :)
