“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Sorry about the banana, but I've been busy.
Sunday, July 4, 2010

"Really, Ad ...," said the reader-friend to me at a party last night. "Blogging about how to peel a banana? (See yesterday's blog.) Can't you do better than that?"

I admit it: The blogs of late have been shallow and fast, but there is good reason for this. I am engrossed in a writing project right now (a humorous memoir about a crazy year I just completed) and it's been a BEAR to write. Keeping up a blog requires a lot of time and energy ... and when you're writing half a day, every day, you just don't have the energy left to do other stuff. My facebook postings (and I give GREAT status, people, if you haven't heard), have fallen off as well. And Thank-You notes from Ad Hudler? Forget it for now.

So ... while I'm writing, you can expect to see shorter blogs, and more photos. I'll pass on things I've read or heard.
Actually, if you have something you'd like to share, a poem or an anecdote or something interesting, I'll even let you guest-blog if you'd like.

Meanwhile, next week I leave for my Tailgate Tour 2010. To refresh your memory, Pulpwood Queen Kathy Patrick (who advises more than 300 books clubs on which titles to read) graciously chose my novel "Man of the House" as the July book. To thank her and all of her fellow Queens, I am swinging through the South in the coming month, moderating book clubs, hosting parties from the back of my truck, and meeting and greeting readers, which is my favorite thing to do in the world. I'll be posting details of my adventures along the way.

Happy Fourth of July, folks.
