Shoveling Out!



Hey y'all! Boy have I missed you and keeping up with what's going on in your lives, with your writing, your holidays, this crazy cold weather we're having, and all manner of things.

With the help of the shovel over there, I *think* I've just about dug myself out of life's avalanche which has had me buried for the last weeks of my unexpected absence from the Blogosphere and Twitterville. Whew! Won't go into details (everybody's got their own set of problems), but I do want to say THANKS SO MUCH for your emails checking in to see if I'm okay and sending well wishes. I always knew y'all were the real deal, and I really appreciate your friendship and kindness.

We've been working hard to get our winter issue of Rose & Thorn Journal out this Friday, so I hope you'll sign up for the quarterly newsletter (which is tres beautiful) so you'll get a reminder when new issues come out. Lotsa beautiful poetry, art and prose to warm you up this frigid winter season...so go sign up, ya hear? It's super quick & easy.   :) 

The new R&T blog features writerly stuff on Wednesdays, so add that to your hump-day To-Do list! Today there's a really interesting interview you writing people might enjoy. Here's a blurb: "Brian Wilkins is the editor of Scarab, a literary magazine for the iPhone." How cool is that concept? And there's also an interview with Kristina Darling that went up last week which gives readers a peek into the processes and thoughts of a poetry & prose writer.

@@@

I'm going to be on a shortened posting schedule for the time being, which will give me time to visit your blogs. I'll put up weekly recipes (good, cheap, easy), writerly nuggets of all kinds, and fun foibles & jokes as I find 'em.

Love to all y'all. It feels great to be back!

Heh-heh! Glad to hear you're doing fine. You had me worried. Take it simple. You don't want to strain anything after all that shoveling. Hugs!

Terri Tiffany said...

Welcoem back! Your voice has been missing here in the blogsphere for way too long! How is your mom?

Welcome back, my friend. I hope all is well.

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Welcome back. Can you send that shovel my way?

Lori said...

You know, I thought, "Digging out? Snow in Baton Rouge?" but sometimes that's preferred to the pile life can sometimes dump. Hope the shovel is strong and your pile is dwindling, Ang. That which does not kill us makes us stronger, meaner, and less apt to put up with it again. ;)

Hey Angie! Great little post, as usual, and I can't tell you how nice it was to see that someone else in the world knows "ya'll" is singular and "all ya'll" is plural. :-)

Deb Shucka said...

So glad you're back. The blog world is a much duller place without you.
