Something New....

I was talking to someone about the publishing industry and said, "It's changing so fast." 

It is.  But then again, there's that old adage that says the only constant is change.

So I try to be open to trying new things.  My buddy, Susan Gable, and I are doing just that...trying something new.  We were on a road trip to Syracuse to do an all day workshop and taped parts of our conversation.  We called it Trippin' With Holly and Susan. Take a look...

We thought it was a fun way to introduce ourselves to new readers and to hang out with reading friends. It's new and we hope fun.

Something else new I'm trying? Radish.  It's serialized fiction. That's not exactly new for me. I had books serialized in Japan years back. I thought it was cool then...and I think it's cool now.  So I put up The Moments there! If you're using Radish, check it out. If you're not...uh, check it out! LOL

More new things... I started ceramics classes last fall and I'm loving them. I have a new one class fall.  But in the meantime, I've been playing with acrylic paint, seeing what I can do. I'm no expert, but I'm so enjoying it!

Trying something new is imperative not only in writing, but in life in general. We have a pond at the's spring fed and there's always new water feeding into it. It's beautiful.  Unlike the stagnant hole filled with water just a bit down the way from it. Other than the rain, nothing new feeds it. It smells wonky.  I'd rather be like the pond. LOL


Polished Off: Maid in LA #5

PS One more new thing...the fifth Maid in LA book came out yesterday!!

You are so talented!!! Something new is always a good idea, though, even if you're not especially good at it. (My quilts, for example...)
