It's been so long since I've posted on this blog, that I couldn't remember where it was hosted, let alone the password. Found it!

Next, I googled "Writers Block" to see if the name was taken as a website. (It is - owned by a company that produces wooden blocks that say...guess what? Yup. Writer's Block.) It's a cliche, I know, but Holy Cow, am I struggling. 

My last bunch of posts were all about promoting my book. It's been 5 years. Okay six. Since then, full disclosure, I have started and abandoned 3 book projects - a novel, a non-fiction book and a memoir. I'm wondering if public confession will help motivate me. Right now, it just feels shameful.

To any new readers, I am a writer. Really. I wrote for The New York Times for more than 20 years. I published a book with a division of Penguin. I had six days of fame, if you count fame as appearing on NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Fox & Friends" (God help me on that that last one.) 

And now...now my lovely daughter has told me to stop wallowing (my words) and get writing again (hers). I'm going to start every day with a writing prompt. And I am jump starting my blog again. And I am NOT naming it "Writer's Block." Encouragement and reality checks are welcome.

Very excited to see the Kate Chronicles revived!

Hooray for you! but please don’t self-flagellate. There’s nothing shameful about facing life struggles and having to suspend one’s other activities to get through. Another cliche: one day at a time!

I'm a Kate Chronicles Super Fan. I've been waiting for its return with bated breath. Proud of you, Ma!

Love all your words and your wicked sense of humor - keep plugging away - we all need some laughs and thoughtful words. Not sure that I subscribed successfully even though I tried numerous times - maybe you are automatically blocking anyone over 70🤔xoxas
