I realize my blogging has been sporadic over the past few weeks…uh…months, so I decided to check in and let you all know what I’ve been up to. I think my last check in was at the end of my crazy summer. Well, my hopes for the fall to slow down didn’t turn out the way I thought.
One bit of good news is that I got a new day job. I’m still a local government gal, but I had to pass along my green queen title. The new job will mean a learning curve and tons of new responsibilities, but I’m very excited about the challenge.
Then there’s the kids. I got over zealous and thought I’d sign my 1st grader up for lots of activities. Yeah…a few weeks of that helped me realize that more isn’t always better. So we’ve scaled back the after school stuff and will try to revisit again next year when my hubby finishes school.
On the writing front, don’t worry I haven’t let that go by the wayside. I’ve been busy working on several projects, plus I’m doing a half-assed attempt at National Novel Writing Month. The original NaNo attempt was to complete a new book in my Henderson Family Series—check out my new Works in Progress Page for more info on that—when an idea for a sexy novella took over. So I put the WIP aside to crank out this 20-30 thousand word novella. I should be able to complete it by the end of the month.
I’m hoping I can have good news for everyone soon. And I’ve got an idea to post chapters from a novella I completed earlier this year here on my blog. But don’t hold me to that. 2014 may hit just as hard as 2013.
Glad to know you haven’t put writing to the wayside! You have too much talent for that! Looking forward to the novella!
Hey thanks, Sharon! I appreciate that 🙂 Life gets so busy sometimes, but writing is a part of that.
