*raises hand sheepishly* Uh … hi???
I know I’ve been missing in action for, well, months now so I wanted to drop by and say hello. I don’t really have much of an excuse except for being hideously busy for a while now, and, frankly, exhausted. And that doesn’t really lend itself much to writing, to my eternal chagrin. Sigh.
Anyway, there have been changes on the home front and that’s been taking up a lot of my attention. Nothing major, and nothing bad, but still, changes, and those need to be adapted to. We are now a little busier than we were previously, and there was an unplanned trip to another city last weekend that took a bit out of me. Plus it feels like EVERYTHING needs to organised for the new year, such as subscriptions to events and other such, and that’s all on my to-do list to be taken care of RIGHT NOW.
Oh, and renovations. They’re still happening, so there’s that, too.
In other words, I haven’t forgotten you all, but I just haven’t had the energy lately to be an active part of this community. And that bothers me, because I miss you all. I looked at my author page the other day and it seems that the get-an-email-each-time-you-get-reviewed function of the archives isn’t working or something, because there are a bunch of new reviews I didn’t know about. I think my unanswered list is up past 80 or something now and I REALLY need to do something about that. And I’m very aware that Tanya wrote on my Writer’s Journal several weeks back now and I haven’t responded to that yet either.
I guess what I’m saying is that I am making a conscious effort to hang around here more, but it might take a bit of time for me to get back into things. And until the extra commitments life is throwing at me ease off a bit, I have no idea how I’m going to fit everything into each day. But you guys are important to me, so I’m going to try. If it’s been a few days and you haven’t seen me around, either here or on Twitter, feel free to poke me a bit. Who knows, it might just be the impetus I need to get back on here.
