So Long, Farewell

…Kind of.

I’m going to be somewhat busy this month as I attempt to prepare a 100,000+ word novel for editing. I thought at one time that I was done, but I’m now aware of plot issues that I can’t just let go. Why pay someone to tell me what I already know, right? So back in I go, no doubt bashing my head into the desk at regular intervals, as soon as the kids are back in school next week. The good news is that I’m having a good time reading it over, in spite of the fact that I should be sick of it by now. So hooray for that!

I’ll be doing a big post on things I’ve learned from this process some time in the near future. SO MUCH LEARNING I AM DOING, and it’s only beginning. The next few months should be quite intense.

I’m not complaining about the work. It’s a puzzle, but the answer is there. I just need to find it. And I did sign up for this, after all. But it’s going to be busy, and I’m on my first real deadline since I started taking my writing seriously. So what I’m saying is that I might not be around a lot between now and mid-February, as this has to take precedence over blogging. I’ll try to be here for WIPpet Wednesdays, and I should be around to read blogs and like/comment when I can. There will likely be a few spontaneous posts. I just can’t stay away, and I wouldn’t want you all to forget me completely. *sob*
