Blah Blah Blog

I haven’t had a blog until now because, well, even the word “blog” sounds like blah, blah, blah, stomach virus. I never want to use words to abuse or irritate the general public. But I’ve been told by several people that writers are “supposed” to have a blog. I like to do what I’m supposed to do. You can ask my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Thomason. I was not the sharpest kid in the class but one time I forgot my homework and I cried and cried because I didn’t want her to be disappointed in me. So I’m going to start a blog because I don’t want people to be disappointed in me and because watching a 49-year-old chubby woman cry is, well, worse than a stomach virus.

My goal is to post every Friday. I might be posting news about “Doug and Carlie,” my new fiction book about a chubby funny Georgia girl on a quest for love and literary success. I might post recent newspaper columns. For more than eight years, I’ve written a weekly column for “The Union City Daily Messenger” and “The Weakley County Press.” I PROMISE not to post what I had for breakfast or breaking news of my upper respiratory infection.

I’m starting by posting two columns. One is light-hearted and funny and the other is more serious. I trust you to figure out which one is which. Blog readers are smart like that.
