I Don’t Blog About This, But I Couldn’t Help It…

How’s your week going so far? It’s Wednesday, and I was dithering about what to write, but after I checked my book review request emails, the dithering disappeared.

Let’s get to it.

People are interesting. Sometimes in life, we meet them, or only hear about them. Sometimes people with interesting situations come our way, and we get the rare opportunity to communicate with them.

Some things I never blog about include the news, politics, religion, and a couple more if I got to thinking. I figure people who want information on those subjects would be better served elsewhere…especially not by reading a blog focused on writing and marketing.

Then it hit me. One of the prospects I promoted my book to said she had to pass.

Her reason?

Hurricane Harvey displaced her.

I didn’t know what to say to that, and I told her straight out. I’ve never been in a situation like that at all (a flooded basement ain’t nowhere near any of that).

Something that seemed far away to me got close real quick.

Sometimes unexpected twists and turns are what we get. What makes good stories and emails can also make living conditions or situations a total drag.

There’s always a story behind people’s lives, and it could be full of struggle, to be sure.

And sometimes those struggles come right where we can see or hear them.

Until next time,
