Yeah, yeah...it's been a while.
I'm busy. Two kids, life, flu.....
more flu, house guests, turmoil, creative differences, pity parties.
AND saving the universe from unscrupulous resellers....
That battle kept me busy.
This blog carried on without me.
But you know what? I discovered this blog is a clearing house for monkey pics. I'm apparently the go-to gal for every odd simian pic you are looking for on teh interwebz. And let's not forget a shout out to the e-cig spammers.
Don't I feel special? Am I going to stop blogging? Naw. Whatever. I amuse myself with the postings here, and really isn't that why I write?
I'm still looking for an agent. That's been daunting, and an exercise or exorcise in self loathing and insanity. I receive great feedback, but it's the standard WHILE WE LOVE THIS PROJECT WE JUST DON'T FEEL IT'S A GOOD FIT FOR OUR AGENCY or the good old "We just don't know where to market this. Perhaps another agent will have more luck."
So I've been taking a break. Stepping back to let the novels breathe for a bit. Yeah. that's it.
My nose is ground flat from constant application to the grindstone.
Screw that! Oh, my lovely little clove cigars, I'm sorry I abandoned you. I've come to my senses.
Plus there's that whole image thing. The writer who doesn't smoke and drink is the writer who doesn't write. Never mind what I said about my little break. Just because I'm not typing doesn't mean I'm not storing up ideas.
|That's sophistication. Ayup.|
With time off from my writing (the pity party I referenced earlier in this post) I've been able to have some quality gal pal time. The Divine YaYas. The Cackle Pack. I've discovered a number of things that go well with rum, including little juice boxes. This could get scary! heh.
|Hey girl! WeeWa and Foi. Good times.|
And my world is complete now with the return of The Walking Dead.
Not that I'm actively condoning the dead rising to eat brains and make havoc, but it would be better entertainment than C-Span and the current budget cuts.
So to all the fans of random monkey pics, I thank you for your google prowess. Here's a token of my gratitude.
That's all I've got. You wanted more? Maybe tomorrow.
