Now…where were we?
I just wanted to pop in to mention briefly that OH MY GOSH I SENT THE BOOK OFF TO IGNATIUS ON MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Guess what: getting a book in final form when you have six young children, including a two-month-old baby who doesn’t sleep through the night, is not a particularly easy endeavor. Little life lesson for you there. It was very much in question as to whether I’d be able to hit the deadline — which I’d already pushed back once — and it felt just slightly like a death march there toward the end.
I’m so thrilled to have it done…or, I will be, anyway. Honestly, right now I’m still in a daze, and I think there’s a 50/50 chance that this is all a dream and I’m going to wake up and find out that it’s June 10th and I’m still behind schedule and still have weeks of toil to go. (And you should see Joe. I think it’ll be a few months before he stops twitching any time anyone mentions the book, books in general, publishing, or pretty much anything having to do with the written word.)
Meanwhile, what’s new? Combine my crazy writing work with the fact that I’m not on Facebook and haven’t been checking Twitter, and, basically, there are desert hermits who are more in the swing of things than I am right now. So catch me up: Read any good stuff lately? Any news from the blog world? Anything going on in your life that you’d like to share?
Believe me when I say that I am truly interested in hearing aaalllllllllll about it.
