It was a long, busy trip, and the week after my return was long and busy too.
But look! It’s SPRING in Portland! I’m trying not to get used to it–March and April tend to be rainy and dreary here, but it’s been gorgeous outside. I should go outside and take advantage of that more.
In other news, Book 4 is NOT finished. I had to get an extension, so I’m still busy writing, writing, writing. It’s going well, but more slowly than I would like. (I know. I always say that. It always seems to be true, though. I would LIKE to be writing a chapter a day, but that is a very rare phenomenon. It only happens at the very end of books. Luckily, I’m getting CLOSE to the end. It will be a sad and happy day when I reach it.)
I have ALSO been trying to get back to everyone who commented and emailed me while I was away. I’m still not all the way caught up, but I am still adhering to the New Contact Policy (see a more thorough explanation of that here). It’s been nice to hear from you guys, and I really appreciate you being patient with me while I work my way through my inbox.
I think I’m done for the night though! It’s 11:15PM here, and I’m supposed to be at work at 9AM tomorrow morning!
Something tells me excessive amounts of caffeine will be in my near future…. 😛
