I learned I feel guilty about not getting around many blogs recently. I am adjusting my routine in order to relinquish that feeling.
Something else I learned was that I have become nervous when I see the sales of my book rise. Crazy? I know, but it is the thought that someone is reading my efforts. I also learned, I love the feeling of good reviews, and the taste of pink champagne.
