As you read this I should be in New Jersey for my oldest daughter's wedding. Hopefully each day's article has been posting correctly. I was checking it before I left and it looked like I had gotten the hang of scheduled posting. So onward to Christmas and beyond into the new year when I'll be back live and in person -- well in a manner of speaking.
I don't think I can put any links in that posted over the past week since I'm writing this in the future from where I am now. Or should I say this was written in your past. No matter-- I wrote it and now you're reading it and thank you for being there. Maybe Stephen Tremp can sort this conundrum out for me.
Did anybody come up with their favorite holiday movie? This question was posed by Buffy Andrews and then borrowed by me on my Tuesday 12/15 post. I enjoyed thinking about this one and came up with a kind of strange choice. You can go back into the archives and see what it is and tell me if I'm nuts.
On Wednesday I featured a short memoir about my mother. I will be getting back to more interviews after the first of the year, but memoirs certainly count as people features. In fact, what do you like best-- interviews or stories about people?
Tomorrow I will have a Christmas related Bible study. Monday I will be continuing "Blog Boggled" with some more thoughts about blogging and how to make a better blog.
The remainder of the week will be something very different from what I have done previously on this blog space. You can think of it as my Christmas present to you-- I just hope you don't think of it as a bundle of sticks or a bag of coal. I will be offering to you a first draft of a short story I had written right before I started posting on my blog back in September. You can praise it, tear it apart, or politely red-pencil it with comments-- I'll leave it up to you. I hope to hear something, anything. But I hope you enjoy my first actual short story to appear on this blog.
Hey, I've got to go get ready for a wedding, so I'll hopefully have some comments to read next time I'm near a computer. Did anybody send me that laptop yet?
