Back on the blog. It’s been ages. That’s because I have been out been doing amazing and incredible and wondrous deeds like walking the dogs, cooking dinner and making sure my kid brushes his teeth. My life is glamorous. Truly. Now if my hair will just stop falling out and I loose the over 40 bulge then it’s all good. Except for those stray eyebrows that grow on my chin. Of course, if all this stuff doesn’t get straightened out… well… that’s why we now have photoshop–which I think is way better than botox because you don’t have to inject yourself with anything. Or do sit ups. Or have strangers in lab coats point at you with lasers.
Come to think of it, can I just photoshop my house instead of cleaning it?
Alright. Alright. Enough about that. Nobody wants to hear about my health angst issues.
Soooooo… on the positive side of life I’m steady at work on my next medieval book–tentatively labeled The Heretic’s Daughter–and I’ve got a few other creative projects on my plate. Also, I’m reading 100 books this year. 80% finished with that.
