I am standing here in a state of equal parts almost-sneeziness and revulsion. How on earth did my blog become so dusty and cobwebby? I'm going to need buckets and detergents and brooms and maybe even some Windex, stat! Now that school is back, this blog is going to have to come back up to speed and quickly, before I am found guilty of total and utter blog neglect. They can put you jail for that these days, you know. Or at the very least drop you as a friend on Facebook. Oh, the horror!
In my defence, however, I will state that I haven't being doing absolutely nothing over the school hols. There have been picnics, and long bike rides, and swims, and loads of games of Connect 4, and playdates with friends. And most importantly lots of hanging with my girl. I think after a long year we both needed the recharge. I didn't craft much, as I'd rather play a game with the Tyger and get the giggles together, but the crafting is going to commence once I hit Publish on this post.
Boy oh boy, do I have some big crafting plans for this year! Also, fingers crossed, the book is going to get written too. I've even gone so far as to write up a weekly schedule for myself. And got it laminated! Yes, I am a big dork, but this is a dork with a mission - I want to get my novel written this year, so time management is of utmost importance, and if it takes a laminated schedule to make that happen, then so be it!
So if anybody knows of any agents out there who don't mind their authors being a bit on the, er, daggy side, send them over my way!
Right, I'm off now to attack that cobweb. Yes, it's an actual cobweb on my house. One of many, if I'm going to be brutally honest. The shame, the blasted cobwebby shame!
