If you see me on a Milk Carton...

You may have noticed on your blogs lately that I have been a little MIA. With everything going on in my life lately I have barely had the time, or the concentration, to write a blog. So reading and commenting have been even more difficult!

I'm almost done with my WIP and plan to start querying next week. So this week I am doing the final run through of my MS, write my query (which is coming along WAY better than I anticipated) and writing a synopsis. All that in between real life, which on it's own has been super hectic and drama filled.

My priorities look something like this...

Family (Which is demanding A LOT of my attention these days)

My MS

Blogs

Twitter (Which may weazle it's way in between my MS and Blogs...but come on...it's Twitter!)

So if you see my face on the back of the Milk Carton, know I am still here. I still love you all. And I am perusing your blogs at every chance I get.



Do you ever feel too overwhelmed to get everything done? How do you order your priorities? Have you had to push any to the side lately to get things done?

Absolutely. Blogs are at the bottom of my list, so if things get too busy they are always the first thing to go. I hope your life gets less hectic soon, and GOOD LUCK WITH QUERYING!

Karen said...

Completely understand! Hope your querying is quick and successful!

Patti said...

All the time. I usually look at blogs when I'm slow at work and have nothing to do.

Good luck on querying.

Oh noes!! Without your comments on my blog, who will put the #windinmyhaaaaaaaaiir?

I have to say, "Suck it Twitter!"

My motto: do what you can do, and forget about the rest! Okay, that doesn't really work, but I should at least get a B - for effort!

And, you could have left that nasty comment off my blog this morning, Miss Poppins!!

I always feel like that! And I don't know how to fix it, sorry.

Oooh! Exciting times - querying. Good luck with that.

We're not going anywhere, Marybeth. Take care of what's important, good luck with querying, and we'll be here when you pop in to say hi! :-)

Jessica said...

Woohoo! Querying time. :-)

We all understand and we all know blogging is more fun than work. Heehee! Therefore, it must come last.

I've started reading blogs and commenting at night, after I've done all my work. If I do it during the day, I find I never get anything else done and feel pressured or rush and I like to feel I can take my time. Writing is tough when you've got a lot of real-life coming at you. Sometimes I only get one post a week up. But, I figure it's supposed to be fun. I've got enough in my life that I consider work. Good luck with your MS. That needs to be your priority now.
