Bloggity blog blog

I've been spending a lot of time, lately, wondering when and how people find the time and energy to blog. I know it's the "done thing" these days, especially for writers. But I've never quite found my blog voice/rhythm. Some of you may recall my foolish announcement many moons ago that I was going to start blogging every day.

Anyway, I've been mostly hiding under a rock with the revision of my next book. Which still won't be out for more than another year. Which ostensibly gives me a lot of time in which to bore people to death talking about it. I guess a blog would be a good place to do that. Right? I would start now if I could! But the title of the book when it sold, CONEY ISLAND HIGH, is going to change and the new, actual title has not yet been agreed upon, though I think there is a front runner.

So maybe I'll start popping up here more. Or maybe I will just start my next book and go back to wondering how people who write books and have lives also find time to be witty or informative or entertaining on a daily basis...
