Well, that brought you here in a hurry, didn't it?
The purpose of this post is to apologize to everyone whom I haven't been getting around to see much lately, and to let you know that I will probably be popping in and out over the summer. My plan is to visit a given blog weekly, but then go back and read the full week's posts. I'm hoping the efficiencies gained this way will let me keep up with all my bloggy buddies. If there's something you'd like me to give a timely reading, drop me an email.
In addition to all the graduation/weddings/ barbecues/ballgames/yardwork/etc. that everyone wrestles with as the days grow warmer, I've started work on a new novel (my 3rd or my 5th, depending on whether you count the miserable failed attempts in my 20's and 30's that petered out after 100 pages, or only the miserable failed attempts from my 40's and 50's that at least went the full distance).
I do not know why I'm sigining up for this grief yet again, other than I just never know when to let it go. I've decided to take the advice of many brilliant (i.e. published) writers and not talk about this one while I'm working on it. When I have a crappy first draft finished, hopefully along about September, I'll shout it from the rooftops.
Thanks for your patience.
