I suppose I have to start someplace, and given that I'm a talker- it may as well be a blog post....
I wrote The Long, Slow Summer Sun because I had a few things that I needed to say, and I figured I'd organize my thoughts into something that I could publish. Doing this, of course, doesn't necessarily validate what I've written as being of value; that is what you must decide.
Now that the majority of the work is over, and I sit in front of my computer starting at this blank website, the thought, "Well, was it worth it?" inevitably enters my mind. And the answer?
A resounding YES.
I was brought up to think and write, and verbalize what I think, and never consider doing so to be a waste of time. No- I'm not necessarily one of those people who think that everything they have to say is worth saying...although- doesn't writing a book mean exactly that? Hmm.
At any rate: I'll be making plenty of stops to this blog (after all- it's a blog), and I hope you do, too.
I think that next up may be the explanation for the original title of the book, as I briefly mentioned in the book's introduction.
