Message in a Bloggle

So…er, um.

Stop stammering, and just say hello. It’s not like anyone's here.


What’s wrong with you? I told you there's no such thing as an Annual Blogger. 

Um…Happy New Year?

Really?...almost a year for that? Blogger should kick your auto-renew’s ass.

Merry Christmas?

You make me sick. Move over.

Reasons for not blogging:

Excuse #1
Like they let the insane have lists.  Sillies! 

So other than the crazy, hectic life-stuff, where have I been and what have I been doing?
Yes, like in using real commas and everything (#hatecommas). Like in actually trying to get published. Dreamer. Something I’ve always, always wanted to do. 
So far, I've written three Middle Grade books (but pretty sure the first two don't count, as they were too busy sucking the big learning-curve lollipop). I'm holding on to the whole third, fourth, fifth time's a charm thing.
...I know, poor kids! (-:
Now go on, explain about the blog... And sooo I had to step away because this blog was (and will always be) like my beautiful, shiny object that I couldn’t stop starring at long enough to get myself in gear. And you know what they say: No Gear, No Dream.  Yeah, nobody says that. Anyway, as I might have mentioned, me and Two-Things-at-a-Time never did get along very well, but I think we are becoming friends or at best, comfortable enemies (still not sure which). We shall see.
But I can pretend almost a whole year didn’t go by without me blogging about a damn thing if you can. I'm an excellent denyer. And I know you guys have some mad, look-the-other-way skillz. I’ve seen ‘em.
If nothing else, I can always make this my annual nervous-breakdown event. If it posts like a duck... 
Any excuse for a cocktail! (-:

There, was that so hard? 
But no gear, no dream right?

You were gone?? LOL

Doesn't matter why, Just great to see you.

I dont remember reading any books in middle school.

Coffeypot on December 28, 2013 at 5:22 PM said...

Glad to see you back, and hows about you giving us a snippet of your book.

drollgirl on January 2, 2014 at 4:57 PM said...

i recently read a book called bird by bird. you might like it. lots of tips/suggestions for writers, and the author is pretty funny too!

Welcome back! Congratulations! You were sorely missed. It's difficult balancing a blog and a book, or other writing pursuits. I'll never be able to balance the two. So, I've only been posting once a week. The Internet is soooooooo distracting .. what was I saying?

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Award Love Received

Thanks so much to Lisa at (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
