Where Am I?

Sunday, November 22, 2009

I'm around. I've been working 10-12 hour days, which doesn't leave much juice to do other things, like say write blog posts. I only log online to check email, might pop into a blog or two or skim through twitter (maybe leave a comment, most often not)and log off again. This will continue right up to the end of the year. I'm swamped at work, and our department was just been handed another huge project to handle. So huge, they're loaning us 4 more bodies from administration to help do the grunt work. Those bodies will most likely have no impact on the hours I've been putting in, though, all things considered.

Writing. I have been. But only during my morning train commute into the office. Time which I guard jealously since I know it's the only time I'll have the energy/mental focus/time to write. I'm still trudging through the revisions. What's taking me so long, you might be wondering--besides the mental exhaustion? The writing really needs cleaning up. It's in-authentic to the characters/story in places. Over-written in many instances or I'm coming across spots to flesh out as I go along. Today I'm going to tackle the only new scene planned for the middle of the book, then it'll be more tweaking/clean up until the changed/expanded ending.

Reading. I've had several DNFs, not surprisingly. In many cases it's me not the author. I long to read something that consumes my interests and gets me all wrapped up the story.

That's about all I have to say at this point, sort of a meh posting, which is why I haven't bothered doing it till my extended absence required that I show my face here. *g*
