a little divulgence, and a word break

On the coffee table in my studio. Photographed with Nikon D300, 35mm lens

I mentioned last week that I'd met with some people recently, and it helped bring into focus some goals that I need to work toward for my career as a writer, photographer and artist.

So, I'll let you in on part of my secret: one of the people I met was a publisher friend, and I told her about a book idea I have.  She thinks it might have some legs.  But the bad part is that I'm still having a hard time putting it all together.  And while my house is sparkling from all the procrastination cleaning I've been doing, I've also realized that part of the reason that I can't seem to get words down on paper is because I find I put off the daunting task by focusing instead on the words that I'd like to share with you here on this site.

And so, with your indulgence, I'm going to take a bit of a word break here at Chookooloonks -- at the very least for the rest of this week.  I'll keep posting photographs daily (because I'm an addict, I have a problem, and I can't just break away from the sweet, sweet blogging), but I'm going to try to save the part of the brain that comes up with sentences, phrases and paragraphs (some of them coherent) for the offline writing I keep trying to accomplish.

But hey, don't let this stop you from commenting, or leaving your links for Love Thursday tomorrow, or whatever.  I'll keep reading and looking at everything you share.

Because I just can't break away from the sweet, sweet blogging.

(More words soon.)
