It’s been two months since my last confession . . . Er, I mean blog entry, due to a number of factors, although mostly due to summer fatigue when I like to be off-line and outside. Then throw in beach reading, carpooling kids, chasing fireflies and watching season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance (yeah, Team tWitch!) and suddenly your blog has flat-lined. Whoops.
I have been writing, but instead of posting, I’ve been submitting work for publication so I don’t have the credentials of a baby baboon. Oddly enough, I’ve never really done this.
I’ve also forced myself to get back to WIP #2. This is hard when I’ve been so close on novel #1. Especially considering the math:
This is a true and scientific equation in the field of creative writing. I should have pursued a career in personal finance, right? Or at the very least a noble quest to find a cure for cancer, or mental illness, in which I would begin immediate investigation into Donald Trump’s bouffant hair dye #5. Red M&Ms explained the 60’s. I think Trump sums up current times fairly well.
So that’s the plan, which may result in sporadic blog posts, but I have tried to stay on top of my blog reading.
Wishing you all a summer of successful writing and enjoyable reading!
