Hiatus - Putting On a Show

My life has been taken over by my job. I know, cry me a river. I don't have a daily grind (wait, do children count?) because I do consulting work on event planning. Months go by when I work maybe a day a week. And now that it's event week, it's every minute of every day that I'm not asleep or in the bathroom.

There has been NO writing for the last 10 days and I'm getting itchy. Though I know I'd be useless trying to concentrate on writing now when my head is full of 300 people moving through six sessions on Friday, (Don't forget the handheld mics. Who will be our runners during Q&A? Did I order enough vegan box lunches?) I did do something to hopefully keep the whole writing brain from withering.

I loaded up my existing WIP on my Nook and read it through. At the end, I smiled. It's good. It makes me happy. I don't have any doubt that I'm going in the right direction. Now I'm eager to get back into the writing hot seat and having to wait until next week to do it is not necessarily a bad thing.

Call me 'marinating.'

Hope you have a great week! I'll be back next Tuesday.


  1. Hope it goes smoothly and quickly and that rest is on the horizon. :)

  2. Hi Alex! It's nice to meet you. Thanks for the blog follow. Am following you back. I hope you have a nice little hiatus. When you get back, I have an award waiting for you. :)

  3. Marinating is very good for the WIP. ^_^ Hope you get to dive back in soon.

  4. I think I know a bit of the feeling - I'm trying to keep writing and critiquing a little bit, but my big priorities are the big Browncoats event in Toronto today, and getting to the airport on time tomorrow, with all of my things packed for a workshop in Kansas! Good luck with your event, and with your marinating.

    I'm looking for some ninja writers to interview for my Ninja spotlight series. If you're interested, go to to find out more!
