Now Back To Your Regularly Scheduled Blog, Already In Progress

October 21, 2009

I feel I need to explain my resent absence.  Having long gaps on a blog is tantamount to having long gaps on a resume.  One must come up with excuses to make the dead time seem as though it was well spent and not just frittered away.

Let me assure you that I have not been frittering.  I’ve been painting trim and visiting with family and friends and performing my wifely and motherly duties.

Lately, the greatest thief of my time has been school work and a couple of seriously ominous assignments.  I have to write a short story.  I don’t ‘do’ fiction.  I certainly don’t do 3000 words of fiction.  The story is coming along now.  I’ve already abandoned one work in progress, but I have a really good feeling about the piece I’m working on now.  Fingers crossed, I’ll have it behind me soon.  Then the world can go back to normal.

To be honest, I’ve been procrastinating.  I’d have the assignment done by now, if I wasn’t constantly finding other more important things to do.  I’ll work on it tonight.  As soon as I’m done blogging and reading Tuesdays With Morrie.
