Checking In


A lot has happened since I went on hiatus three weeks ago. I have written three chapters for my novel (no, this is not NaNo-speed writing). I have had a short story accepted for publication next year. And I was able to attend to pressing personal stuff needing my attention. I will remain on hiatus, though, to continue working on my novel. At my current glacial pace, it may be a looooong time before The End can be typed. I will continue to read your blogs. Please forgive me if I do not comment yet. I have to admit that your wonderful writing frequently tempts me to resume blogging actively. So far I have managed to restrain myself. So again, hasta luego.


The following are links to already published posts grouped under my major themes:

I took a break too (first wrote that as "breath" - Fr Slip!) for near two weeks around Thanksgiving - it was very nice

Fantastic news about the short story, Judith! And well done on getting three chapters completed!

Kathryn, thanks so much for stopping by and also for letting me know that a break can be a good thing.

Judy, thank you. I need all the encouragement I can get. I'm in that stage of the novel project -- the middle -- which is the scariest because I wonder if I will ever finish.
