I’m catching up again. It’s great to read everyone’s posts again and see what you’re all up to. I think I can dive back into work again now – I won’t say am going to and tempt fate – think is good for now. I’m actually quite a happy bunny today. My new puppy arrived yesterday, and she’s gorgeous.
It’s been way too long since I’ve scribbled a word. As you can probably tell by my absolute lack of anything at all interesting to say. The guilt has been the worst thing about not being able to do much on my computer for so long. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if all indie writers have this constant sense of having to be doing something constructive for every minute of every day of their waking life, or else you’re just letting everyone down.
It is quite a unique place – Indie World. I remember in the beginning having read that you have to be visible all the time, and instantly respond to everything that pops up or you’ll be dismissed as an amateur and forgotten about, but that isn’t the way I’ve found it to be. We’re all trying to do the same thing, and then we catch old Fate’s eyeball now and again, and have no choice but to leave our spots on the interweb growing cobwebs for a bit. When we tiptoe sheepishly back in to the room though, we find all our friends still there, and not giving us the cold shoulder after all. If life never insisted on our notice it wouldn’t be life at all, and we’d probably never have anything to write about either because all good has no depth. So maybe I’ll just call these bumps in the road research from now on – not absenteeism.
