I suck. That is all….
No it isn’t.
You may have noticed I haven’t posted here in a while. I sincerely apologize for that. But life is effing nuts! I know you can relate. Everyday I wake up thinking today is the day I will get everything on my to-do list done. Every night (ha, who am I kidding, I go to bed at 3 a.m.) I go to bed with my list five items (at least) longer.
I’ve been wanting to get my latest installation of SRSLY up for weeks now, but it keeps getting pushed back. I am thick in the midst of edits on The Arrangement for my publisher. It has been an amazing learning experience, and I am strangely liking the editing process. But I miss sitting down and creating something new from scratch. So, I think this weekend I’m going to put the edits to the side for a few days and work on other projects.
Outside of my little writing realm things are equally crazy. I did a senior portraits session for my niece and her friend and need to edit all of those pictures, like, pronto. Work is one thing after another, as always. I laugh at the girl from six months ago that thought moving from news to PR would be less stress. It’s not, just different stress. My son’s 3rd birthday is coming up in a month, not to mention my 7th wedding anniversary. Add in other family stuff and It. Is. A. Lot.
But through it all writing and reading grounds me. It gives me an escape. They may take time away from everything I need to get done, but it is time I will happily give up for that little respite.
All that to say that unfortunately engaging with my reading/writing community has taken a backseat. But I want to change that. I am looking into ways to carve out a little more time for blogging/tweeting (almost said twitting) / Facebooking.
Please, don’t give up on me! I love you if you are still reading all this. Let’s make out.
