So…where have I been? There I was, steadily blogging at least twice a week and then poof – I disappear for almost a month.
It would be cool if I could report that someone waved a magic wand and I was transported into an alternate universe with no electronic devices. Or that an evil witch tempted me into casting a spell that backfired, sending me into a land far away, busily fighting fire-breathing dragons on my quest to find Dorothy’s ruby slippers —
No. The truth is a bit more mundane. Simply put, I’ve been swamped with family visits!
This of course is a happy dilemma for which I will gladly put my writing on hold – for just a little while. Although I must say, I deserve at least three gold stars for sacrificing my Internet access (for a solid week!!) in favor of my sister-in-law who had a laptop that mysteriously stole the household network. What can I say? I’m a gracious hostess.
And I’m not done yet.
I have more family arriving today and then again next week, visiting through to the end of this month. Let me repeat, this is a joyous occasion. I would walk through a bed of hot coals if it meant I would get more time with these beloved folks.
This just means that my posts will be sporadic over the next month or so.
My writing and reading goals are also a bit out of whack, but I have no doubt in being able to pick up where I left off as free time presents itself. Namely:
1. Finish reading Alma Katsu’s new book “The Reckoning” and post a book review.
2. Write a short story for submission to my Writers’ Group, Sci-Fi Anthology WIP. (I already have the story idea!)
3. Dust off my NaNoWriMo manuscript and reevaluate editing goals.
4. And then – make plans for new goals 🙂
