There are these things you’re supposed to do in life, you know? And when you’re out in the public eye—large or small—there are extra things you’re supposed to be doing.
Authors are supposed to be writing…and promoting. Well, I’m trying…and I know I’ve been remiss. As I’d previously mentioned, I’d had shoulder surgery, and I’m still rehabing there…doing my at-home as well as in-office exercises. Things are going extremely well. But the point is, I have to do about 30 minutes of rehab exercises every morning. Which takes up, you know, 30 minutes. From my writing time.
Add to this, is we’re having some work done on our home. It started with hail damage from this past Summer’s Hailopocalypse, but has been delayed because of an early cold snap. But still, research and such had to be done up to now.
Add to that, home remodeling we put off last year.
Add to that, a new day job.
Add to that, family life. Illnesses, events, and living (but everything is fine!).
Add to this preparing for the 50th anniversary participation in MileHiCon50, which is this weekend. Granted not too much preparation on my part, but, you know, a little. I’m moderating one panel and needed notes for another panel I’m participating on.
But Life is good! I love having so much to do! It’s part of being alive and engaged!
None of the above are anything I’m complaining about (I have no complaints!), see, but it’s just that I have a lot hitting me at once, and the actual writing part…working on my newest manuscript (which is coming along pretty well, by the way)…and posting blog posts (I’ll try to squeeze in a few like this one)…has been significantly impacted…and I just wanted to let all of you know that I haven’t disappeared, haven’t forgotten you, haven’t stopped writing, and I’m certainly NOT complaining. I am just keeping you all informed and
Doing my dangedest.
