First up in the update on why I haven't been blogging: I finished the first draft of my novel. (YAY!) It's been a long time coming and I've learned writing a full length novel has a much different process than writing a short story or novella (at least for me it does).
I'd love to be dancing in the streets over this news, but the truth is there is still a lot of work to do in order for me to get this into any type of shape that I'd be willing to share it with a neighbor, let alone the world. So, that is happening in the wee hours of the morning at my house. Which is the only time I can pretend not to get interrupted and concentrate on...well, anything really. And, believe me when I tell you that I'm not a morning person. Thank goodness for coffee makers with timers.
Family life with two very active little boys is keeping me hopping. Day-job just seems to get more and more demanding. And lets not forget spending time with Hubs, trying to make healthy meals and keeping the house sort-of clean. Those are the highlights of my days.
And, really, I wouldn't have it any other way.
As a complete aside, I'm nearing 900 Twitter followers and have over 200 "likes" on my Facebook page. Thank you all so much! If you'd like to stay connected, I encourage you to check out both of those options as they are easier for me to check multiple times a week (ahem...yeah, okay, day) than blogging.
