Sorry For My Absence

Hello to all my lovely blog readers and followers:)

I am quickly writing a short post (again) to let everyone know I am sorry for th elack in my social networking this past week.

I have been really, super busy. Who isn't, right?

I am taking three separate workshops, and participating in three different contests.

I have been critiquing a couple new CP's work and trying to respond to their suggestions and advice in my own manuscripts or queries.

I have an agent who requested a partial of one of my manuscripts, so I spent a day reading and editing, which I had already done, but wanted to double check my work before sending. Would you believe I found FIVE typos AFTER I hit the send button. I am anguishing over that.

Then I am dealing with the start of school.

And of course the moving-to-a-new-house-new-state issue. That hasn't made much progression.

Then I have life in general: cleaning, cooking, and life.

So, I've been a tad busy and my social networking has suffered for it. I promise, all you beautiful bloggers whom I read after and faithfully follow, that I will be back in the saddle soon and back to commenting and sending out some of that blogging love:)

Thanks for reading my blog anyway, even though it may seem like I am ignoring you.

I miss everyone:(


  1. You've had a lot going on! Congratulations on the partial request. Don't sweat the typos. They happen.

  2. Thanks Alex. But still, too many typos could make the agent wonder about the authors ability to proof read:(

  3. It's the typo gremlin that does it, you know. They sneak in after you've saved and mess with your words. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.

    But ... oof! Workshops, contests, critiquing, editing ... all on top of RL. You got a lot going on there. No need to apologise. I've only one workshop and critique right now and I'm finding it difficult (of course, a sick partner makes concentrating tricky).
    So don't worry about us and not having anything new, we'll be here when you get back. ^_^

    1. Thanks Aldrea! I haven't forgotten about my story I am suppose to send you. Still. working. on. that...

  4. It's so awesome that an agent requested part of your manuscript! I would say that's a good thing to be busy with. :) Congrats!

    1. Thank you Ashly! No word yet. The waiting is horrible...

  5. I found your blog from the GUTGAA event. I couldn't resist checking out a few blogs before the event started and following them as well.

    Whoa, you have been busy, especially writing wise. Major congrats on the agent who requested a partial of one of your manuscripts. What a BIG achievement, I'm stilll working on that aspect. I hope that all went well with back to school.

    1. So glad to meet you:) I'll be visiting soon. GUTGAA has so many signed up, I can't wait to meet some new friends:)

  6. Some really exciting news. No wonder you are busy I hope it all goes well.

    When you are not so busy maybe you would find the 'Be Inspired' tag I left for you over at my blog of interest.

    Good luck!

    1. Oh, Suzanne! Thank you so much! I've been jealous of everyone else who has received this tag, so I can't wait to share mine. My only problem is figuring out which manuscript to share.

  7. Ha, don't worry about your absence! I've been horrifically guilty of the same thing lately. I always forget to go look at everyone else's blogs. So, you're forgiven! (:

    I wanted to ask. What's with the constantly-changing background? I love coming on here and seeing a new BG every time, but I just wondered. (:

    1. I should title my blog, "Home of the ever changing blog background!"

      I love changing the background. It's easy, it's usually free, it's fun and I like the change. I hope it doesn't bother people to much.

  8. Congrats on the partial request! And no worries about needing a blogging breather. It happens. Moving is an ordeal, and the start of school requires a lot of prep time. Good luck to you and keep us posted on the manuscript. ;-)

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you...



  9. I'm so happy for you, getting something other than a form rejection! Great job!

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible. Flickr Creative Commons So, I have taken inventory of my life, my goals, and the things that matter. The things I *can* change and the things I *can* produce fruit for later use. I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
