Ghost Town Blog

There is nothing creepier than a ghost town blog. Did the blogger die? Did her dream die? Was that a tumbleweed that just rolled by? What the heck happened!

I've had my head down and I've been writing. Writing a lot and reading a lot, just not blogging. I miss writing book reviews about the good books I'm reading. Writing reviews helps me figure out plotting and pacing, which is a constant battle. Much to my surprise, a few people have mentioned my reviews help them choose books for their kids. I love that. I also miss the reflection part of blogging, even though I still do that in my journal. I'm going to try and be a better blogger.

Steve Jobs died yesterday. I love the quotes from him that are surfacing. This one is especially good. 

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” -- Steve Jobs, 2005, at Stanford
