Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Writing { and reading and publishing } ~

When Is The Word “No” Better Than The Word “Yes”?


I normally post to this blog Monday through Saturday, every week.

Yes, that’s quite a schedule but it helps with search engine visibility and I have a lot to say.

Yes, I’ve had a number of author interviews lately and there are some really cool ones to come next week.

Yes, it does still take me just about as long to post an interview as my own words, what with all the emailing and editing.

Yes, I do work about 12 to 14 hours a day, seven days a week on pre-publication activities for my forthcoming book.

No, I won’t be posting tomorrow. [  I cheated and posted a short announcement about our special visitor on Monday :-) ] And, No, I won’t even be looking at new posts from my Blogroll buddies or making comments on your blogs…

Yes, it feels Great to say “No” today ’cause I’m going to do the final revisions on Notes from An Alien today, tomorrow, and Sunday.

    Thanks for all you do Alexander! Although I’ll miss your visit to my blog tomorrow, along with your most amazing comments, I’m glad you’ll be working on “Notes from An Alien”. I’ll look forward to hearing from you when you come out of your revision cave. :-)

    BOO!!!

    I had to come out of the cave for a bit to attend to looking at the excerpt you sent me, like I promised. I just emailed my thoughts about it to you…

    Back to the cave :-)

    I know the feeling. I’ve been putting other things on hold while working toward a deadline on editing my book.
