Too Much Information?

Dear Readers,

Am I wearing you out with these long posts? Is it just too much information?

My internet service has been out for a full week (one of the challenges of living in bush Alaska; 21st century services with 20th century delivery), so I have been writing Word documents at home and taking them to the hospital for posting. Then I am surprised at how long they seem on the blog. Perhaps I am more of a novelist than a short story writer (I am, in fact, working on a novel about life here, but that is having a very long gestation).

Comments, suggestions, advice welcome.

Hi, I just came across your blog and I think it's fantastic! I really enjoyed reading your entries. Medicine up North seems like a very interesting experience, using all about your ears, nose, eyes and 10 fingers to the maximum :) Meeting a new People looks quite enriching as well.
Keep up those great posts!

Thanks, marysienka. I really appreciate your feedback. Not many people are leaving comments. Living up here at the edge of the world and writing this blog feels like dropping a feather down a well and listening for an echo. Thanks for visiting.

As I have said before, you write great stories and I enjoy reading them. I don't think your posts are too long; several of the bloggers I read and enjoy have posts just as long if not longer. Keep them going, please!

Please, don't worry about the length. Bullet point blogs give me a headache. I find that as I blog long I learn to think long, and let me tell you, thinking long is a joyful thing.

You should join me in my Slow Thinking Movement. My motto is that if it takes less then ten minutes to figure out it is not worth thinking.

Dawn and Dr. H--thanks for your support in the "Long Posts Are OK" division. In true Eskimo style, one of my friends commented "Well,...I guess you have a lot to say..." I guess I do, and long posts are likely to be my norm. Hopefully, I will attract readers with long attention spans. Dr. H, I'm with you in the Slow Thinking Movement. I love the luxury of time to sit and think.
