I'm Still Alive & Change in Format

A long time ago when I started this blog and my old website on iVillage I wanted to write meaningful essays and I did at the beginning on iVillage. When I joined Blogger I did that sometimes, but for the most part this became more of a journal of my life and the challenges of getting healthy and being a working mom.

I've decided that I'm going to go back to my original plan of making this more of a platform for more serious, and sometimes not so serious, essays. What I mean is that I need to refine my writing and use this as an opportunity to do that.

That said, you may not see me as often. Hopefully you'll see me less but when you see me here it will be with a well written essay. In addition to that, I think I'm ready to tackle my novel again and finish this first draft so I can get started on the editing and rewriting process.

On a side note, and speaking of essays, if you haven't picked up the latest issue of Texas Monthly do. My cousin Oscar Casares has a great article in the May issue about his dog Flaco and reminisces about his old dogs "Mingo." Check it out!

Hey mujer,
I saw your comment on my blog, and I will update soon!
I'm looking forward to reading your essays. I love to write to, and now that I will be moving, graduating, and without a job I plan to do more writing.
talk to you soon :)

Shoegirl, I think that's a great idea. With blogging it's not always about quantity, but quality. Too many people feel compelled to blog every day, even if it's about what they ate for breakfast! I'm looking forward to your future posts.
