Boy, when I take a break, I take a break!
It's time to come back, but I'm a little apprehensive. I feel like a recovering alcoholic lingering outside a bar wondering if I'm about to relapse.
I love blogging so much it tends to take over my life.
Which wouldn't be a bad thing if I had the ability to stop time and accomplish everything I'd like to in a day...but until I learn to make physics bend to my will, I gotta be a little more diligent about my time management skills.
A lot has happened since my last post....
I quit one job and started another
(and I'm LOVING it!)
I lost the last third of my book
I got my gall bladder out
As I tried to rewrite it (the book, not the gall bladder), found myself writing absolute CRAP
so I'd give myself a pep talk and try harder but it resulted in even STINKIER crap
and even though I was on blogging hiatus, I'd read your blogs on the sly...
only reading about all the book deals and rewrites and WONDERFUL, AMAZING things you've been up to put even more pressure on me to get my act together...
which resulted in me writing such POOPY, STINKY, CRAPPY, EWWW, I decided I needed to walk away for a bit.
And I did. No blog reading at ALL.
I stopped checking my email for MONTHS
I don't want to say I was depressed, but I was definitely STUCK and not in a good place.
But things are better now.
I'm writing again, and I'm LIKING it.
It's slow, but it's GOOD.
And I'm here because I've started composing posts in my head again...and I'm tired of talking to myself.
Tell me - what have you been up to?
Who do I need to congratulate on a new deal?
Who needs a pep talk?
And who's ready for the return of Mock Me Monday?
