I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I updated this. I mean, I knew it had been a while, but dang.

Well, this update is to say I won’t be updating for a while. Life is picking up and I’m on a mission. A mission that requires discipline, dedication, and lots of hours of my time. I will have this blessed manuscript finished – first draft that is – by May 28 in order to then use it in my six week revision class that begins June 6.

To accomplish this mission, I must write thirty pages a week from now until deadline. Since setting this goal, March 28th or there abouts, I have written 73 pages. Yes, I’m as stunned as you are.

But I’m doing this in the midst of the day job and the kiddo’s volleyball season and normal life that for me means the usual controlled chaos. And dirty socks. (For a girl, this child has the nastiest dirty clothes. It’s awful.)

All this to apologize in advance for my absense and say I have not forgotten about this blog, I simply can’t fit it into my life at the moment. Should any break throughs or major announcements need to be made, I’ll be sure to make an exception and find the time.

Hope everyone is having a great spring (YEAH for warm temps and pretty blooms!) and your own controlled chaos is more control than chaos. 🙂

    Thanks, Irish. I’m forging, but a little too late. LOL! I need to go to bed!

    That sounds almost like religious zeal Terri.Though I believe monks rise very early for Vespers (or something) so be careful!

    That humorous optimism is a huge asset that will help you through many a barrier and deadline.

    As Irish says, stay focused.
    Onwards and upwards is the way to the top.

    I think you are amazing to cope with so much!

    I’m excited that you are writing. See you at RWA?

    Hey there, Q. I think I could qualify as a monk these days. Though that vow of silence would never hold.

    Yep, staying positive and feeling good. Some bumps this weekend, but slow progress is still progress. And I have much less to cope with now than I did a year or two ago. Learning to say NO! is the best thing I ever did. LOL!

    Beth – You’re going to be there again? Good, that’s another person I can look forward to seeing. Have you ever been to Nashville? I used to live there and I can’t wait to get back.
