Widowhood Is Not Funny

Please Forgive Me

Please forgive me for not posting in so long. So much to tell, where to begin? First of all, I've learned the hard way that making a living sure gets in the way of making a life. And you can quote me on that one. It feels like all I've done is look for work. That's the bad news. The good news is that I've spent the last year working on my book, Widowhood Is Not Funny, and it's finished at last! Right now, I'm writing a book proposal and looking for a good agent to represent me. I have some leads and as soon as I find that person, I can turn things over to him/her and get on with the business of finding more work and writing my next book. I'm thinking of writing a novel about a widow, who learns to move on with her life, finds her new purpose, maybe even finds love again. The job I'd really love to have right now is writing a column about being a widow, maybe for a magazine.

In the meantime, I'm still here, though silent, and invite any and all widows out there to post, talk to me. And like Frasier use to say on his radio show, I'm listening."
