Florence and a blog adjustment

Some people make changes at the beginning of the New Year, but I like to  initiate change in the Fall. I relate to maple leaves changing color.

My blog has mostly been about my life as a writer, but that’s getting boring: write, edit, crumple pages, sigh, write, edit….  I love the process, but that kind of passion doesn’t translate well onto paper. Don’t get me wrong, my blog stats show growth in readership, but the growth is slow. My new plan is to focus more on my research hoping that will draw people who will be interested in my stories.

But before I launch into a new blog schedule I’m going to go to Italy. I’ve never been there before. It’s a trip of a lifetime for me. So, I’ll be blogging about that for awhile.

Do you have favorite places in Italy? Places you’d recommend we go see, or suggestions of activities to do? I’d love to hear your stories.

Our first plan is to take a cooking class in Florence. They take you to the market to pick out the food, show you how to cook it and then you get to eat it. I can’t wait.
