It's Friday--Take the Plunge!!!

Heeeeere we are again! It's FRIDAY!

Let's do something fun.

Hmm. What? What, what, what ...?


Seriously. That's what my post is about at The Debutante Ball today.

Don't believe me? Click here and you'll see.

Oh, but before you go, let me just thank you for your concern and well wishes last Friday. We're all mostly recovered now, and the rellies are out of the hospital, minus a few appendices. (One was an emergency appendectomy, the other was a "what the heck, as long as we're in here we'll just grab that useless organ" appendectomy in conjunction with another surgery.) So all is well in Grimes-land again. :)

So, what's the craziest thing you've ever done?

When Life Pitches You Curveballs

Hi there. I'm still alive. Sort of. *cough, cough, hack, wheeze*

You know how when you plan a nice blog hiatus to get a bunch of novel writing done, and a family member goes into the hospital for surgery, and everyone around you gets sick, and another family member goes into the same hospital for an emergency appendectomy (and winds up in the room next to the first family member, which is kind of convenient, but still), and then you get sick, too?*

Yeah, you know how it is.

That explains why my post on pitches at The Debutante Ball today is rather short. But, I hope, helpful.

Hope to see you there! :)

*This is why I should never go on vacation. Come to think of it, the last vacation I took started with an earthquake and ended with a hurricane.

It's Friday the 13! You know what that means ...

That's right! It means I'm at The Debutante Ball posting about one of the scariest things ever: SUBMISSIONS.

Since I'm still officially on hiatus here, I hope to see you over there.

Thanks for clicking through! :)

Well, this is embarrassing...

As promised, I'm just here to redirect you to my regular post over at The Debutante Ball. This week we're discussing embarrassing moments. As you can imagine, it was SO difficult for me to come up with any. *cough*

Hope to see you there! :)

B is for Buh-Bye!

Yup, I'm outta here. But only temporarily.

See, there's this whole A to Z blogfest going on for the month of April, where the diligent bloggers are posting (almost) every day, each day being somehow connected to the corresponding letter of the alphabet. Yesterday was "A." Today is "B."

Now, there is just no way I can manage that rigorous schedule, especially this month. I have family coming to stay for a few weeks, there's Passover, followed by Easter (we're an eclectic family), followed by my mother-in-law's surgery, all wrapped up in a great big writing deadline for me.

So I've decided April is an excellent candidate for a blogging hiatus.

Oh, I'll still pop in from time to time. Probably to beseech you go read my Debutante Ball posts on Fridays, since I can't go on hiatus over there, it being a group blog and a long-term commitment and all. And I'll try to drop by your blogs as much as I'm able. Maybe toss out some tweets, just so y'all don't forget me. But every now and then, something's gotta give, yannoh?

But I wish you all much success with your April blogging, especially if you're taking the A to Z Challenge! I look forward to reading as many of your posts as I can. :)
