It’s been a few months since I was able to touch base with all of you. The spring has been filled with travel, trials, and tractor pulls. (Okay, I didn’t actually go to any of those last ones, but now you’re paying attention.)
Now that things have settled down a bit, I’m happy to report that I’m back in production mode. My Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is completed. My manuscript for my first fiction book has been accepted for publication. I’m done teaching for the summer. And while other people head for the beach, I reorganize my life.
I’ve asked a few of my friends to drop by in the next few months, so you’ll be hearing from authors and artists from time to time. I hope you’ll click on over to their websites and support them with a comment or a “like” or investing in their art with a few dollars.
I’ll keep you posted on my book’s progress, and invite you all to celebrate with me!
I love my blog. I love talking to interesting people and sharing helpful articles. I dig the occasional blog hop or writer’s group challenge. But the truth is, I have a whole professional identity that I’ve worked hard on, gone to school for, and would just really like you to know about.
I talk about books because I’m a writer. I talk about education because I’m a teacher. But I’m not just talk – I’m here to help anyone who needs assistance with editing their manuscript, meeting a publisher, starting a class, or looking for a little encouragement. If you’d like to comment here, that would be great – but please take a moment first to check out my website, KarenBNelson.com to see what I do when I’m not hanging out with you wonderful people.
It still seems weird to think of myself as “new and improved”, but that may be my A.I. circuits reconnecting. At any rate, I look forward to seeing you again … wherever we shall meet.
