Ok, I made one.
I have been a very bad blogger.
But I have been a very good writer. Since I last posted, I've been very busy and pretty productive. This isn't the most productive I've ever been as a writer--having a nine-month old does kinda wreak havoc on your time management.
As proof that I'm writing, learning, and generally being a productive human being, both as a reminder to myself and an update to you fine people, a modest list:
- I revised the MS that my agent and I are currently working on. This was huge--for some reason this revision was mentally very difficult for me. So I count it as a huge victory that it got done.
- Related: I worked with my agent on this revision, which meant a level of collaboration I really haven't attempted before. Obviously, it's still my work--but I've never had someone this close to my work. It was awesome, but of course a learning curve.
- I knocked out about 20K on a new project, and am still chugging away at it. It feels really nice to be drafting again. And I love this project--the characters just make me smile!
- I have a rough plan in place for the rest of that project.
Also, fair warning--my time is, I'm learning, extremely limited. I have time to care for my kid, do some minimum housecleaning, and write. Blogging is going to have to take a backseat. I'll probably update when I can, when something important happens, when I have something to say that I just can't keep to myself, but probably not terribly often. I debated announcing a full-on radio silence, but I want to leave myself open to pop on and blather if I feel like it. That said--I am on Twitter and try to pop on there once a day or so to do a really quick browse and catch-up. Say hi if you come around.
So what have you been up to?
