But I had reasons, good reasons. The most important one being that I'm pretty sure every single person in the picture above sent me an email last week. And, I emailed them back. I'm good that way.
This week is going to be different. I can already tell. I have my publisher's edited version of Losing Beauty sitting on my desk, it seems I'm slightly commaphobic. A point I'm trying to deny right now, by using lots of commas. I've even managed to proof it through chapter Thirty-Two.
Better yet, I can already feel words kind of buzzing in my fingertips. They're ready to come out. As soon as I get the kids off to school and answer a few emails I'm going to open up Losing Hope and get to work. What will Persey discover in Clear Lake? How will Haden manipulate Confess.com? I'll definitely get those things written today.
Maybe I'll even finish editing the publisher's version of Losing Beauty and send it back to them. And if I have time after that I'll whip up a delicious, magically nutricious, organic after-school snack, clean the top of the refrigerator, finish the laundry and...... Okay, I suppose the odds on getting all of that done are about as likely as winning a surprise trip to here
Not likely, but I can dream.
