I’m such a busy little bee these days. My blog is a great example of the things I’m neglecting in order to get other things done. This is not true of many of my favorite bloggers, so today I’m going to send you to the posts I read this week that will most likely improve your life, especially your writing life (or make you laugh which is even better).
First is Inspiratus Interruptus by Joe Hartlaub at Kill Zone blog. If you struggle with phone interruptions or finding blocks of quiet time for your creative pursuits, you’ll want to read Joe’s suggestions.
Are Women the Better Hunters? by Teresa Funke on the Medium site. This is a humor post that speaks the truth about men as hunters and women as gatherers.
I recommend any post from Colleen M. Story’s Writing and Wellness blog. This is the best place to go for information on improving our physical and emotional wellbeing.
The most popular post on the Rocky Mountain Fictions Writers blog in the last two weeks was The Truest Voice of All by William Kent Krueger. If you’re a writer who hates being stuck in a genre rut, this is a must-read article.
I will be spending next week with my mom for her 97th birthday, and I won’t have much computer time. As a result, there will be no author guest the week of the 9th through the 15th. My guest lineup returns the week of May 16th when I’ll have feature Darcie Wilde, Rex Burns, and Trai Cartwright.

Thanks for the links, Patricia. So thoughtful of you to share them with your visitors.
Susan Gourley says
Enjoy time with your mom. And of course, women are better hunters.
Alex J. Cavanaugh says
I’m sure there are women hunters better than me – I don’t hunt! Or fish. I’d just starve in the wild…
Joe Hartlaub says
Thank you for including me, Patricia! It’s much appreciated. Joe Hartlaub
You’re so welcome, Joe. I just wish I could get Sassy Dog and Katie Cat to pay attention to the notes I put on my door. As for the phone, my latest tactic is to answer the phone on the first ring and then hang up. I think it messes up the robo cycle or something because the constant callers usually drop our number off their list after I do that once or twice.
Margot Kinberg says
Thanks, Pat, for sharing those posts. I always love learning from what bloggers have to say! Enjoy your visit with your mother.
Hi Margot — if I were being a good little writer, I’d be writing instead of reading blog posts…but then look what I would have missed!
