So after my big pledge late last summer NOT to have a lame blog, it turns out I have a lame blog. What is it with me? Blogging, Facebook, Twitter, etc. just don’t come naturally to me. Is it that I’m in the moment and don’t want to get swept into virtual life? I wish! I think it’s that the moment – parenting, writing, parenting, parenting – pulls me in so deep that I often don’t remember there is much else out there. I have little kids. I’m knee-deep in revisions for my latest novel. Where I am is good. Though I do need to set up an appointment for a massage soon. My shoulders are up to *here*.
For those who have asked about my latest novel, this one is a solo venture (though Jay and I are always talking about another collaborative). This book is almost 300 pages long and still coming. It covers five teenagers over all four years of high school. They make a pledge at the beginning of ninth grade. That’s all I’ll say. It’s my longest and most ambitious yet, and I’m loving it.
So that’s where I’ve been, and that’s what I’m doing. I will be in touch the next time I take a moment to look outside my moment.
