Dear Blogging Friends,
I’ll be away from 05/28 until 06/05, so I won't be writing new posts during that time, and probably won't have much time to check your posts. (Sorry!) I'll make up for it when I return. While I'll try to respond to any comments, I'm on vacation, so I should treat it as such. Who goes to Dublin and Paris, and remembers all the blogging they accomplished?
And I’m trying not to think of all the bad things that could happen to do with missing luggage, sickness, ash from volcanoes, and plane safety. When anything good comes my way, I fear it’s fleeting and make myself a ball of anxiety.
What will I do when I actually get an agent? And a book contract? I have to let good things come my way without apologizing for them. Sorry I’m not worthy.
I’m not the only one who has a problem with the idea of success without strings:
When I return from the trip, I hope to hear good things happening for you on the teaching, writing, and life fronts. If you have news or just miss me, email me at tmilstein at gmail dot com. Or read one of my old posts. Some of the earlier ones have little or no comments, so they’re lonely.
I’m nearing 200 followers, so I plan to have a BIG contest when I get back. It will involve autographed books, a gift card, and something to do with rejections. Stay tuned.
Have a great week, blogging buddies!
