No, wait. Scratch that. Sounds too needy.
Actually, I've missed you. Yes, you. You know who you are. No, don't look over your shoulder--I mean you. And, if I might I be so bold as to say it, you're looking particularly snazzy today. Is that a new outfit? And have you done something new to your hair? Love it!
(Okay, relax. I can't really see you through your webcam. But, if one is to believe reports, the NSA can, so you might want to nix those naked web-surfing plans...)
Me? Oh, I've been keeping myself busy with this and that.
You know, taking care of business. Spending time with family and friends (both real and imaginary). Pulling people's heads out of camels' mouths (er, so to speak), etc. Becoming appalled at how rapidly time is whizzing by while I try to keep up with it. I mean, come on. 2014? Seriously? How the hell did that happen?
(Oh, before I forget, that first picture up there is from: http://www.idreammortgage.com/2013/07/17/welcome-to-get-over-the-hump/ Not that I'm advertising for them. I've never even heard of them. I just liked the picture.)
Anyway, in between playing nurse for various family members and waiting for my editorial letter on The Big Fix, I've been working on other writing projects. Book 4, of course, tentatively titled Fixer Upper, is my priority. Contracts are highly motivating.
Here's a teensy-tiny bit from it:
"Weightlessness, I decided, was way overrated. My stomach concurred." ~ Ciel Halligan, Fixer Upper
Oh, dear. What has Ciel gotten herself into this time?
I've also been toying with a high-stakes thriller and revamping an old paranormal suspense. Gotta keep some extra irons in that fire!
So, what have you been up to lately? Has 2014 (!!!) been treating you well so far?
