Coming out of hibernation

Hello - ello - ello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anybody home?

Ahh Pink Floyd, you sum up the situation so well. Have any of you stuck around after I abandoned you? I'm sorry. Really and truly. I know it's no excuse, but let me summarise my life over the last couple of months:

Work, school, drive, eat, sleep, work, homework, eat, sleep, work, school, assignments, sleep...

And it's not over yet, but it will be soon. Currently I have a 40% assignment (on publishing production schedules) due in a week and a half, and an exam and a test to study for. And then, on the 12th of October, I'm free! Well sort of, I still have a full-time job, but at least my nights and weekends will be mine again.

So I just want you all to know I'm coming back - I miss you! And I miss writing. And my characters. And having a life.

In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you. How are you all? How's your writing? Are you all winning?


  1. If you want a bit of vicarious living, I had my first very short story published in an anthology last week. It's 200 words long and I nearly didn't give it a go. Surprising what can be said in so few words!
    It's on my Wombat's View of Life blog.

  2. LOL see you soon then ( wave ). Currently playing with ideas for NaNoWriMo

  3. Just ten more days! And Hurray!

  4. I was gonna say!! Glad to see you're still alive. Sounds like you were near drowning a fair bit lately though. Hope all your assignments/etc. go well. I remember the days of 40% assignments. Yech! I look forward to hearing that you're back & getting stuck into writing again!

    Take it easy!

    You're coming through loud and clear - I think that's in the same Pink Floyd song.
    I've missed you too! Good to know you're ok and good luck with the rest of your assignments and exam.

  6. Sari! Welcome back! :) Good luck with the rest of your school things, and hopefully we'll see more of you around again.

  7. I hear you! I hear you! Welcome back. Good luck with finishing up school. Looking forward to more posts.

  8. Thanks, Golden Eagle! It's nice to be back. :)

  9. Thanks, Prue! :) I feel very welcomed. I think I'll still be a little patchy for the next few weeks, but hoping to be back properly from about mid October.

  10. Thanks, Shallee! Gotta do some of my assignment tonight (procrastinating right now). Would much rather be catching up on the blogging world!

  11. Yay, I'm still heard! Hehe. Thanks for the welcome back, Kari Marie :)

  12. You don’t need to apologize for not blogging on a regular basis.  Just look at how lame the latest post on my blog is.
