Okay, now I understand this whole blogging slump-thing. I used to think, “Hey, why hasn’t so and so blogged in the last 2 days? What gives? Where’s the consistency?” Now I see how easy it is (as with all my other writing projects) to just take a day off. Or two. Or three. It’s nothing personal, really; I’ve just been trying to lay low after my business trip to New York and the dreadful “catch up” aftermath at home.
So now I’m back. For the record, while I wasn’t blogging, I managed to get through more editing of my manuscript, the infamous/dreaded “Draft 3” I keep telling you about. (That’s infamous to you because I know you don’t believe that it exists; dreaded to me because I know it does.) I’ve hand-edited approx. 90 pages of the 300+ page manuscript, way behind where I thought I’d be or wanted to be by mid-September, but I’m excited about the story again and the prospect of it being ready — well, almost ready — to shop around. And, I received my check in the mail for my essay in the Chicken Soup for the Working Mother’s Soul book (due out next month).
Maybe the clouds are
lifting parting? I get my weather mixed up – clouds, fog, whatever. I must be a true weatherperson.
