And here's a photo of Shannon and me because you're dying to see us.
Secondly (but most important to me of my miscellaneous) is this: I'M WRITING AGAIN. Let me say it one more time; it feels that good. I'm writing again. After a four-month writing break, which included a lonely bout of disbelief in my writing, I finally broke through my funk -- or at least I decided to write despite my funk. Probably the latter. Anyway, I wrote some new stuff this past week. It's new stuff in a story I began last winter, but still, it's NEW and it's WORDS.
Lastly, I'm chugging through a long editing project for a client of mine. In fact, I've never tackled a project this long (122,000 words!), so the length is breaking my brain a little. And being so keyed in and close to someone else's plot, characters and conflict makes it pretty impossible to write my own stuff during an edit, but those shiny new words I added last week are glinting and golden and winking away at me, and I'll return soon to add even more.
So, what's been going on with all of you?
