I got this email the other day, via the “contact us” link on my website (www.saraothompson.com).
SO I guess I better get to writing something interesting, huh? SO MUCH PRESSURE. Next time, Essie, please tell me which posts were especially interesting to you.
Then I remember I DID write something not boring.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to post and respond to every goofy email I get. I think this one is funny though. Clearly, she’s read ALL my blog posts and just wants MOAR BLOGS PLZ.
Let’s see. What have I got to write about?
I’m pretty much divided like this, timewise:
- Work (I have a day job at a major health insurance company)
- Family (Twins, and my husband is a critical care nurse)
- The Book (Releases in just over two months so I’m doing marketing, etc.)
- House (we just moved and I’m still unpacking, organzing, hanging stuff on the walls)
- Other (gym, improv practice, hanging out with friends, reading, etc.)
That’s about it. I don’t have kooky neighbors to write about. I’m not interested (and neither are you) in musing over my own mental health (or lack thereof). You won’t find a bunch of smarm about my kids or motherhood or what have you (privacy, y’all). I might write more about the marketing parts of the book, but that will be in a separate post.
So here is some random brain-bot-generated items for your consideration.
I had Kool-Aid (cherry) yesterday, for the first time in decades. It really took me back to my childhood: hot Kentucky summers when my sister and I would bum around the house and our neighborhood and I made gallons of the stuff.
I’ve become someone who complains about the grocery store and actively laments not being able to shop at the one we went to before we moved, which is now too far away for convenience.
I don’t like vests (I mean sweaters or jackets without sleeves). I get the point of them…I guess… But I also hate shorts (trousers that stop at the knee, rather than carry on to the ankle). And vests are shorts for your torso. I look terrible in shorts so I only wear them to do sporty things. So maybe that’s why I hate vests? I hate torsoshorts.
Our new house? Is in the dodgy end of the neighborhood.
Patreon. I’m considering it.
That’s it for now! Being serious though, I will try to post more often.
*Author’s update/edit: Someone pointed out that I shouldn’t post anyone’s personal info. This is true. I wasn’t worried about that in this case because that is clearly a bot sending the email. However, to be sure and just in case and covering my bases, I have omitted the
bot’s sender’s name in the screen picture.
