Oh, No! What Have I Done?
I've joined two listservs! Or maybe just one, since only one of them, Child_Lithasconfirmed that I'm in. I'm even receiving e-mails from the group. That appears to be how listservs work.
I say "appears" because, really, I only have a clue.
Well, I am excited about getting to talk to some more kidlit people. Since I hardly know any kidlit people, at all, you can see why this is a big deal for me. I hope they don't mind that I never seem to like much of anything I read. The listserv I joined is described as being a little on the academic side. A little more rigorous intellectual effort would be good for me, I'm sure. You can never think too much, right? Gee, I hope I can think enough for these guys.
There is a problem with doing this, though. A listserv is a way for a lot of people to e-mail each other. (I guess, because, remember, I only have a clue.) So I'll be getting e-mails off and on all day. Many of which I'll want to respond to. Plus I go to Readerville off and on all day, too. And I have a number of blogs I like to check out each day to see what's going on in the world. Plus I have my workout schedule. Plus I like to update my own blog a few times a week, at least.
What I'm driving at is that it looks to me as if my writing career is pretty much over. I don't have time for it. Wait! I could stop calling my mother! That will buy me more time. Yeah. I guess I'll do that.
