Worst Blogger Ever Award

They don't have one of those floating around the webbernets, do they?  If they do, someone give it to me, stat.


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?
