Finding My Way Back

Hey. It’s been a while, I know. I’d like to say that I’ve been sunning on a tropical beach somewhere in the Caribbean, but instead I’ve been up to my earlobes in, well, life for the last month and a half. I managed to squeeze in a couple of blog posts during that time but finally had to let blogging go for a while, too. I didn’t want to admit it but it just became too much. Not that blogging is hard, but I haven’t had a lot of computer time lately. I decided that if I’m not writing, then I shouldn’t feel guilty about not blogging, right?

I did, though...just a little. Truth is I’ve missed you.

In between jury duty, college applications, school conferences, a *sick computer, planning and cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner, etc., I’ve been thinking about those of you who visit and take the time to comment. I apologize for skipping out for so long. Unfortunately, my commitments ate up most of my free time and the early mornings, full days, and late nights caught up with me and completely wore me out. Like my post title says, I’m finding my way back, albeit slowly. And like all of you, I'm still busy, but I plan to return to regular blogging soon (as long as my computer doesn't start acting up again). Because you know what? I miss it.

And I’ll tell you what else I miss. Writing. I haven’t worked on my ms since September and I’m longing to get back to it. Even though the holiday season is upon us, I’m committed to carving out a portion of my week to writing. Though I haven't decided whether I'll continue with Nitpicky or work on my YA idea (more on this later).

Oh, and a big thank you to all of you who haven't abandoned me. I can't wait to visit you and read what you've been up to over the last few weeks. I even gained a few new followers during my absence. Such a nice surprise. Hello and welcome to Elizabeth, Cara, and Margo. Thanks for stopping by.

So again, I'm finding my way back. Leave the light on for me, okay?

*(A stupid virus nearly ruined my computer. Thanks to my brother for his time, knowledge and skill, and calm presence while his sister [that would be me] freaked out.)
