Blogs are so personal and so self-indulgent, at least, mine is. I have enough trouble trying to write my blog every day without reading others'. I know I'd learn a lot if I did. Take Neil Gaiman.
I really like his writing. I've read only half a dozen or so of his books -- his output is enormous. -- and I have enjoyed them, for adults or others- not much difference, he just writes well. So I was looking him up because i just bought his newest book, a collection called "Trigger Warnings". And the review referred to his blog, so I looked him up - - wow.
It was dated February something and he was in Dublin, having just received a James Joyce Award and then he was going on to London, or somewhere, to give a speech about Douglas Adams. Wow. And he went on from there, discussing his new book (Trigger Warnings). My thoughts, apart from Wow, several times, were regret and apologies to my 2 or 3 (maybe 6?) readers for not having more exciting stuff to report. Soon, maybe.
I still haven't decided on my clothes so I haven't packed the advance bag but I have packed a new LLBean toiletries bag (it will hang on the back of the door in the cabin bathroom- if there's space.) Oh, dear, now how exciting is that? But I am getting ready to write a worthwhile travelblog.
