Eeep! It’s been weeks since I posted. What happened?
Well, for one, I finished the first draft of my first-ever novel for middle grade readers. *happy dance* The process was overwhelming, amazing, scary and a true test of commitment for me. It still needs a lot of work, but I can finally say, “I wrote a novel, even if it’s a crappy one!”.
There were birthdays — Ellie turned 7 and Joanna turned 6, on the same day — and there was spring break and there were other moments of not-so-happiness that sucked the inspiration out of me. So April, the cruelest month, was a roller coaster for me — an apt metaphor, because, frankly, roller coasters scare the crap out of me and I avoid them at all costs.
I’ve also been blogging over at Be Sure To Test, a great new site for diabetics and their loved ones.
So, that was April. Today there’s a gusty, post-storm wind stirring up the newly budded trees, right outside, and things are growing.
And, yes, this blog will be one of them. I promise.
