There Are Two Reasons for a Lack of Blog Posts

One is not enough to write about. The other is too much.

I do not suffer a lack.

Most of my "too much" is non-writing related, though. So while a week long trip to the beach, the Pea's 2nd ear surgery in 6 months, our air conditioner being on the fritz in the worst heat wave in a decade, and starting a new home-based business to raise money for adoption are all interesting and very time-filling things, they have nothing to do with my book.

I've been able to write in spurts, and I've worked out some key plot problems. No complaints. I didn't meet my goal for when I wanted to have this draft done, but that's life. I've eaten popsicles on the back porch, survived swim lesson week, gone on a lot of long walks in the (closest thing to) cool of the morning, watched all the Lord of the Rings movies in 4 days on Blu-Ray with Hubbykins (he swears he can tell a difference from plain old DVD), welcomed a precious new nephew, and met a bunch of new friends.

Life is good. (Easier to say that while our air conditioner is currently off the fritz.)

  1. I know exactly where you're coming from. I haven't been posting on the blog and I feel so bad! I don't have enough topics lately either and way too much revising to do :)

  5. Hi! New to your blog, but it's so cute! Life can be so hectic. Glad that AC is not on currently on the fritz. Not a good time for that. Hang in there - life happens!

  6. Glad you're still able to write "in the cracks". I used to do this all the time. Now, when my kids go back to school, it's me and my computer--staring at me! I have no excuses!

    Here's hoping you carve out more time and stay cool!
