Now There's Some Irony For Ya!

>> Monday, February 27, 2012

You know what's ironic? Now that I have my blog set as my homepage, in order to remind myself to post on it more often, I haven't the time to write the posts that I want. Shoot, I'm surprised I could get online tonight, much less type out a short blog entry. As luck would have it--or rather, the lack thereof--the kids and I have become sick. My son has it the worst, followed by me. My daughter has a fairly mild case, at least so far. *knocks on wood* And my poor husband is hoping and praying that he doesn't get sick, because he can't afford it. He's at a new job, and they're just starting to send him out on tech calls by himself, so sick days aren't an option at this point in time.

I'll be taking the kids to the doctor tomorrow morning. My son in particular needs to be checked out. He's been running high fevers the last few days, and I'm starting to suspect an ear infection; I've noticed him tugging at his ear today. I hope they can get everyone on the road to feeling better soon.

So that's what's going on in my life right now. Needless to say, not a whole lot of writing is getting done. Though I did start an article that might amuse people. Once the kids feel better, maybe I can finish it.

Okay, I admit it. I'm crap at keeping up with this blog. Of course, one look at the sporadic entries in this blog could tell a person that, right? Blah. No, really: BLAH. My problem is that I'm scatterbrained. Out of sight, out of mind. Which is probably why whenever I want to make sure I remember something, I write myself a note on a post-it and stick it somewhere I can't miss it, like the front door, or on my laptop.

It has occurred to me, therefore, to set my blog as my homepage. I figure, if it's staring me in the face every time I log onto the internet, I won't be so forgetful. (Hopefully this theory will prove to be true...)

So what's the life of this writer been like since September? Hmm...chaotic, mostly. There have been a lot of schedule changes and added responsibilities, what with my husband graduating from school and me settling into a semi-workable routine for keeping up with the chores around the house. As for writing, I have been working a great deal on Anemone's Song, but I have also taken on some other work with this shared project that I am doing with some of my other writer friends. So while I edit my book, I am also worldbuilding with other writers and working on some short stories.

Can I just say, though, that Anemone's Song is one--excuse the phrase--long ass book?! Yeah. This is taking forever. Or, as Pinkie Pie would say, FOR-REV-VER!!!
