Back at work

Yup, Travis is back in school and I'm back at work on Starletta's Kitchen. Trying to get more food into the book. If I don't, I have to--eek--change the title.

I was just noticing that a lot of blogs by male writers are impersonal. Informational and interesting, but not personal. Just visiting The Elegant Variation (, which I like very much, and it got me thinking. So I thought I'd made a gross generalization. ; }

Everyone back to writing (if you took the holidays off)?

I'm not surprised that men's blogs are not as personal as women's. Remember what Deborah Tannen said in her first book, "You Just Don't Understand"--men are interested in reporting things and women are interested in rapport. Men want to figure out a problem and then report to you how they did it. Women want to talk and talk and talk and figure it out with one or more people/friends. So -- I'm thinking that blogs are just an extension of that!
