I missed my regularly-scheduled posting time last week. Work was busy, with a huge project deadline looming. On the home front, there were 3 things last week happening in the evening hours. When I had nothing on Friday morning, I thought, “I’ll do it tonight,” but we had a meeting that kept me out, then I had a work event on Saturday that wiped me out. Once I get past a certain point, forget it, I’m not posting.
I think I’m in that funny phase of writing known as “recharging” or “filling the well,” or insert your own metaphor. I also skipped my writers’ circle on Sunday, using the excuse that I was tired and that we were doing a lengthy spring cleaning. Both were true, but the other truth of it is I just haven’t felt a whole lot like going lately. I’ve been valuing the socializing aspect of it more than the writing lately. The writing (mine, that is) has been rather pedestrian; I haven’t been enjoying it quite as much, so it may be best to stay away for a little while. The big project, the current novel, has comments from 2 readers now, both full of excellent insights and commentary. I’m not burned out on THAT writing and will be diving back in this week. How quickly I can turn it around and get it in Agent Carrie’s hands? I don’t know. I was hoping to be able to be submission-ready before the dead days of mid-summer. We’ll see how that goes.
As for the blog, you know me–I’ll threaten (promise?) that I’m shutting down for a little while, and then I’m back with little or no interruption.
That’s all for me, for now. How’s everything by you?
