Wordless Wednesday: Lost in a good book

The Six-Year-Old devours a book of fairy tales while I read a book about why six-year-olds read books. My book, in case you’re interested, is Enchanted Hunters by Maria Tartar. (Photo: Shala Howell)

This is supposed to be a wordless day, so I’ll keep it short. Things have been quiet here lately because I’ve been distracted from blogging. Ironic, isn’t it? All those years I spent feeling guilty about how my blogging was distracting me from my writing and here I’m feeling guilty because my writing is distracting me from blogging. 

Will things get better? I hope so. I miss answering The Six-Year-Old’s questions. She has some great ones pending on banana slugs and earwigs. But this wasn’t the week for that. 

I went to a fabulous writing conference over the weekend. I’ll be churning through some of the stuff I learned there over the next few weeks at my other place. My first post, “How the Chicago Writer’s Conference taught me to stop hating Twitter”, went up yesterday. If you’re interested in the writing side of my life, pop on over there. If not, sit tight, and I’ll get back to answering questions about slugs and such as soon as I can.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
