The InBetween

IMGP0001_5

I’ve been mostly absent from the blogosphere these past few days. It’s been family time, of course, days spent away from home eating and drinking and sharing time with those I love most. I thought about you all, of course I did, hoping you were all enjoying a happy Christmas time too.

But it was also that I needed a break. I love blogging, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it’s nice to have a few days where I don’t have to think about much except where the next Ferrero Rocher is coming from. πŸ˜‰

Also, for some reason, I am spam. The Akismet elves, while protecting my own blog, somehow decided just before Christmas that my comments were in the same category as the ‘excellentwaytopromotecontent’ and ‘estepornovideo’ ones. No idea why but, if I do normally comment on your blog, please check your spam folder just in case.

And finally, editing. Having a few days of not doing much somehow freed my mind, and I have finally managed to sort out the first few chapters of Hills and Valleys. So it’s full steam ahead with the next book, as it’s due with the editor in three weeks time.

And here we are at what I call The Inbetween – the space between Christmas and New Year when I’m not sure what day it is, and my time is (mostly) my own. There is more editing to do, of course, plus, visiting and excursions and the usual things around the house. Yet somehow, the horizon feels open.

So I hope everyone is well and happy, and here’s to an exciting New Year!

  1. Sometimes it’s good to have a break from it all. I’ve used this time to sort through old paperwork and tidy away all the notes for my first finished and published novel. Now I can start the New Year with a clear head and desk, and I’m getting really excited for January’s writing challenges to begin.

    1. That is a good way to start the year! I’m doing the same thing with my writing space – clearing it all out so I can start the new year fresh. It feels good, doesn’t it? πŸ™‚

      1. No, I just married an Australian and ended up living in Australia for 17 years πŸ™‚ First Melbourne, then Sydney, then Melbourne again before heading for the coast… It’s a lovely place, just very far away πŸ™‚

      2. I’m so jealous! I want to go to the Brisbane area, Gold Coast up there after seeing the Fools Gold movie. πŸ™‚
