Oh, the down-down days of summer. Too hot for much of anything. And to top off the oppressive heat, I fell leaving the church a week ago Sunday and twisted my right ankle. When my daughter was born, I was in labor for three hours so the pain definitely didn’t last this long! I hate pain. I also hate being unable to focus. X-rays proved nothing was broken but the constant ache/throb has me shifting/twitching/wiggling, searching for comfort. I’m not even able to enjoy my web surfing. Ah, well … this too, shall pass. Hurry, hurry, pass already!
A few weeks ago, I popped onto twitter and found one of my writer heros about to give an interview on the radio. Ya’ll probably know her: Jane Friedman. She has a terrific blog, however, she’s turned it over to Porter Anderson while she concentrates on a new project. Now Jane is web editor for the Virginia Quarterly Review.
Anyway, I tuned in to Jane on the radio. Yep, I took notes!
Jane also said if there’s one quality we need to instill in ourselves, it’s patience because success takes time. Small actions every day during a long period of time is what will get us where we want to be.
She also gave a few tips on blogging among other things and after the interview, I tweeted ‘well done’ and told her I needed to take a hard look at my blog. Here’s what she said:
So my question is: how do I strengthen and take it to the next level? Any suggestions?
