I have taken a pause in updating my blog. I am writing, just not here. Actually I am not writing new. I am editing old. You see, I finally decided to put some of my writing together in a book mostly for my children.
They know a lot about me. They know I run, I direct races, I do marathons, they know I like to write and my daughter reads me, but they don't know how much I write and that I have been writing for a long time. I want them to have some of my writing.
I honestly thought this was going to be a quick thing. Pick 200 articles or so out of 650 I have and turn them over to a book company to have them do the work; not so easy...not easy at all. It has been a lot of work. Just selecting the ones I want has not been easy, then editing them myself to expand some, to combine others, to eliminate phrases of some that are repetitive of others, and to have a diverse selection that includes all my sides, the humor, the opinionated, the fearful person, all of those entities of me.
I hope to be done before my other project, my Celebrate Life Half Marathon returns. For now, this is all I'm doing and I am enjoying it. Yes, it is a lot of work, and it is enjoyable work.
