Better Late Than Never Published
I tried, I really did.
My objective (I sometimes hate the word goal) is to publish each month’s volume on the first day of that month. January on January 1, February on February 1 and so on.
Then came April.
My eldest was now in college.
My youngest is anticipating middle school.
I started a new job.
Volatility in my personal relationships with other adults pulled a lot of my time and attention and sapped my mental energy.
Pick the distraction, my reason for procrastination, my excuse.
I did not get 365 Dinners: April published on April 1.
I was disappointing myself. The days ticked by and I still did not published April. I didn’t even have April close to finished.
Heck, there were nights I would groan at the thought of writing. I would, instead, make a pot of ginger and turmeric tea and play a game of Boggle with my daughter.
Finally, about five days ago, I gave myself a talking to and said “Self, enough is enough. This is an awesome series with wonderful recipes. Get it done!”
So I got it done.
Late last night, I declined all invitations — including Pistol Pete playing the blues at Mary’s Place — and I finished and published 365 Dinners: April.

Now, one beautiful Sunday to rest and then on to the writing of 365 Dinners: May.
