...Get to work!
Happy Sunday, kids! I hope you've had a great week. Autumn has FINALLY arrived here in New England, and like the new crispness in the air, change is afoot here at FFYF.
Since I am a woman of diverse interests, I've decided to blog them ALL here...hence the Yada part of the Yada Feast. I've contemplated separate blogs (health, art, movies, nature, and of course, writing), but heck, let's face it, that's too much work, and despite my rigorous upbringing and work ethic indoctrination by my intense (and wonderful) German-American family, I am not an ant (reference to The Ant and the Grasshopper story, an Aesop's Fable). I, my friends, am a grasshopper with ant-heavy training. I am also a Gemini, both factors which cause more than their share of internal conflict. "I need a break...No, get to work!" "I'm really tired...No, you're just a lazy sack of cheese. Get to work!" "Wow, what a beautiful day...Quit your lolly-gagging around. Now, get to work!" Um, you get the picture...and the sound of the fun voices in my head.
ANYWAY, in sharing all of my diverse madness, er, interests here at the Yada Feast, I run the risk of scaring some of you away, or even causing offense, but I really hope not. I love you all, and this crazy little corner of the Internet just wouldn't be the same without you. But a girl's gotta follow her heart, right? Besides politics (WAY too divisive these days), pretty much all other topics are on the table--basically whatever happens to tumble out of my head on a given day. Writing, books and the publishing world will still be my main focus, but there's much more rattling around in my cavernous brain (btw, that does not infer size, rather a rather hollow space)...and there are things you don't know about me. *grins*
One way I can help you to decide whether to spend your valuable time reading a particular post at the FFYF, is to add subject caveats, like [Yada Books], [Yada Art], [Yada Nature], [Yada Movies], [Yada Interviews], [Yada Tech], etc. You get the idea, right? What do you think? Let me know. I'd love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, concerns, compliments [Yada Wink].
So, I'll be starting off the next blog with a topic close to my heart, [Yada Health]! I do hope you'll stop by next time and discover a "secret" piece of information (well, little known, anyway) about my past, along with a topic that may be of tremendous value to you and those you love. It has been a huge help for my family and for me!
Well, that's it for now. I hope I've piqued your curiosity a bit. I'll look forward to your thoughts and ideas.
Have a great week!
Wickedly Yours,Fran Friel
