July Ultimate Blog Challenge - expectations

The word of the day is expectations. Again I refer to Miriam Webster's dictionary. the act or state of expecting; anticipation. So, what are my expectations from taking this challenge to write a blog a day for the month of July? 

Of course, I expect to return to writing after a very long absence due to life's interference. A blog a day is a good way to reinstate the habit of daily writing. Long-term expectation is to gain a host of new readers for the novels I've published in the past. 

Oh, have I not mentioned the dozen or so books, both fiction and nonfiction, are available in both print and Ebook format? The easiest way to check them out is to go to my Amazon Author Page https://www.amazon.com/author/gayingram.

But what about expectations that will resonate in my personal life? Well, being forced to come up with something to post every day causes me to take a closer look at  myself and where I am in life. I've reached an age (I'll let you guess at that) where I don't anticipate any life-changing adventures, but you never can tell. God does have a sense of humor, I've discovered through past experiences.

But, I tend to agree with a comment John Mellencamp made in a recent Sunday Morning interview...and I paraphrase:"I only have so many summers left and I intend to keep doing."


  1. I am in awe of anyone who has written a book. Mine is still buried deep within me, but hopefully one day soon it will start to emerge. Love your blog.

    1. the only way it will see daylight is by sitting own and putting words on paper. Something has to be written before it can be fixed. Keep me informed.

  2. I checked out some of your books - I am not doing too much reading right now but I started out college as a history major and ended up majoring in cultural anthropology. Some of these books would definitely interest me. I did live, for a brief time, in Wichita Falls, TX (thanks to my husband being in the Air Force)and for five years in Arkansas. Not sure of your age but I am (also?) a senior citizen - and I want to make the best of what good years I have left, too.

  3. Thanks for checking out my books. As to age, I had been married 59 years when my husband died last year...is that a clue?
