Blogger’s Quandary/Pearl Losing Enthusiasm

I used to be able to rely on Pearl writing for me.

She did a great job.

Though the transcribing was kind of a pain.

I woke up to a bloggers’ quandary today.

I actually started this blog primarily to popularize (and sell) my books!   (At the moment, there are three– comic novel, NOSE DIVE,  book of poetry, GOING ON SOMEWHERE, or children’s counting book 1 MISSISSIPPI. )

But pretty soon, blogging took on a life of its own–a life which has kind of crowded out not only the selling of books but the writing of them.

For a while I could rely on Pearl to write the books–but Pearl, like me, is getting old.  And blind.  And tired.  And her writing can be a real b—- to transcribe.

The problem is that it’s a bit lonely to write books and very very lonely to try to get people to read them.  While blogging is communal.  And being part of a community is fun.  And inspiring.

And yet, well, Pearl–that is, Pearl and I–really enjoy book writing, at least in principal.

So, what is to be done?

(Other than teaching Pearl to type. )
