Don't pay the ransom--I got away!

Wow. Been a while, huh? 

Okay, so I wasn't really kidnapped. Unless you count kidnapped by life. (Ba-dum-bum.)

Yes, I've been remiss in my blogging duties for the past few months. Got a little caught up with things over the last part of the summer. Edits, copyedits, drafting the next book, family time, etc., etc., and so forth. 

Geez, it sounds boring just recapping it in this truncated form. *huge yawn* Honestly, you should be thanking me for not subjecting you to it while it was going on. 

To make up for my absence, I offer you this adorable baby animal pic:

Why a lamb? Because I'm feeling a little sheepish, of course. (Go ahead. Groan. You know you want to.)

I'm still in the middle of drafting FIX 4 (working title: FIXER UPPER), and having all kinds of fun with it. Good thing I can type and giggle at the same time. I'm such a multitasker! 

Wow. I just noticed there's a "tit" in the middle of "multitasker." (It's possible I notice things like that way too much. What can I say? I'm *cough* observant. Also, it appears, situationally ADD.)

*Ahem* What was I saying again? 

Never mind. So, what have you been up to? Please say hi and let me know you're still alive and kicking. :)

Still alive and kicking here, too. (But not too high!)

It's good to see you popping your head into the blogosphere for a quickie, but we all know whatever goes on here isn't nearly as important as what's going on in your actual life with your next book, family etc. Yes! Next book! Looking forward to it. Write, woman! Write!

Welcome back!

Linda G. said...

Susan -- LOL! Yeah, my high kicks are falling short of their former glory, too. ;) *proceeds to write, write, write!*

Karen -- Thanks! Hope all is well in your corner of the globe. :)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Aww...the baby lamb pic was so worth it. :)

I haven't really been blogging either. Or writing though. Eeep.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Hello, Linda! Glad to know you weren't kidnapped after all! I hope that we'll be seeing more from you. I miss laughing at your posts.

Um, WITH your posts? BECAUSE OF your posts? I don't want you to think I'm laughing AT you ...

Linda G. said...

Jennifer -- It's been one of those summers, hasn't it? Hope you get back to your writing soon! :)

Dianne -- LOL! With me, at me, because of me--it's all good, as long as you're laughing. :)

Anne Gallagher said...

It's good to see you back. I thought we'd lost you for good this last time.

And hey, LOVE the title for the new book. Go baby go!

Linda G. said...

Anne -- Nah, I'll always turn up eventually. And thanks! :)

J.L. Murphey said...

Still kidnapped by life. Stroke recovery, therapy and caring for my hubby. Hopefully will be writing again soon.

Re: your baby pic...Awwwwww! A real cutie!

so keep on living and learning and writing. we'll be here waiting!

don't know about kicking but I'm still here

Linda G. said...

Jo -- I hope you're back to writing again soon, too! *hugs*

Abby -- Thanks! Glad I haven't been welcomed back with blank stares and "Who are you again?" ;)

Triple-J -- "Still here" is a good thing. The kicking can wait. :)

Diane Henders said...

Welcome back! Good to know all is well in your world, despite having discovered a middle tit. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Diane Henders said...

(Or should I say, "Couldn't resistit"?)

Linda G. said...

Diane -- Snort! Oh, yeah. Definitely "resistit." *grin* As for discovering a middle tit...TG (aka, hubs) should be so lucky. ;)
