tuesday favorites

Because I’m working on this book, most of my writing energy goes into that. And so the blog gets the weary, wrung-out inspiration. Maybe I’m stating that which is painfully obvious.

There is so much I have learned over the past five months while writing this book, so much I want to share here. But there are rules in publishing, so I’m not really free to post much of what I’ve written. Still, I’m getting excited about the way it is coming to life. I hope you think so, too.

Anyway, since I am feeling a bit stifled here lately, I have to tell you that I spent some time yesterday reading a lot of your Tuesday posts. What a delight. You take my breath away. Really. Don’t believe me? Well, while Emily is using all her writing energy up writing in Microsoft Word in a dark corner of Panera on work that will not be available until the Summer of 2011, allow me to introduce you to some of my favorite Tuesday entries this week:

My Town by Graceful

I Get Funny Looks by Finding Serendipity

The Grace of a Normal Day by Billy Coffey

Of Bath Towels and Burritos by Gypsy Mama

Told ya.

    Emily, I read Chatting daily, and I have yet to feel that your words here are leftovers after working on your book! I always find inspiration in your posts. Thanks for sharing some of your favorite blog-authors, I enjoyed visiting them so much!

    Thank you so much for featuring my Tuesday post here today. Unexpected joy! When I popped over to sitemeter and saw how many visits my blog had this morning already, I was like, “What the heck????” Then I noticed they were coming over from you. Thank you!

    I’m sorry you are feeling wrung out. I know. I have only experienced a hint of what that writer-wringing feels like, but along with everything else — children and family and household and work — it’s a lot, isn’t it? You are doing GREAT work. Hang in there, push on through. God is doing great things through you. And like Lisa said above, you could never tell from reading Chatting that you are feeling spent — it’s always a full well brimming with inspiration, beauty and joy.
