Well, my writers group finished reading my novel, and I survived their critique. Phew! Now all I have to do is settle in for a nice revision. No problem, right?
So why am I working on my blog instead? Well, as a friend pointed out, it's been quite some time since I've posted anything. It's been a seriously crazy month. So crazy, in fact, the fact my group liked my story really hasn't sunk in. I'll probably realize how delightful that is sometime in the next week or so. Instead, believe it or not, more important things have consumed my attention.
It's been a month of hospitalizations: my grandmother, my friend, my cat. It's been a month of celebration: my husband got and accepted an exciting job offer. It's been a month of transition: we have been looking for a place to live closer to the new job. It's been a month of unexpected complications: our car was rear ended just days before we were to drive to North Carolina. In short, it has been a month of surprises.
I wish I could say things will calm down soon, but who knows what the future will bring? The only thing I know for sure is that wherever I end up living, and whatever else happens in the world around me, I have some revising to do!
