a breakdown in the system

I'm back. I'm sure you thought I'd vanished into the ether, never to be seen again. I didn't. I was here all along. Busy, working on my edits for the new book, (insert shameless plug here) Suddenly Sorceress, coming in February.

The book is set in October, so while the inspiration surges, I'm riding the wave. And that left me with nothing to blog about. I even missed the first day of "real fall" as opposed to "fake fall" or the equinox. I know, the equinox is the official first day of fall, but if you ask me, fall doesn't start until October. Hence, my calling it "real fall." But I digress.  

And honestly, I have been busy these past few days. My sister came to town for a visit today, dragging me out of the house to shop for antiques--something I love to do, but rarely take the time. And I cleaned the house yesterday. Even did several loads of laundry--trying to catch up with that "real life" stuff I avoid like the plague. But this makes it sound like I'm making excuses (and I guess I am.) I didn't blog for days. Days! And for that, I'm sorry. Really. I am.

But being a full time writer is hard work. And sometimes you have to wash those pajamas and restock the refrigerator. Every now and then, you're expected to shower, and wander into public. Now that I've done that, I should be good for a few weeks. Maybe even months. Hey, I'll do what I can. I don't want to push it. 

Until the next time...I'll be busy writing (in clean pajamas.)
