Big and Little Doin's A-transpirin'

It's been awhile since I've blogged. Wondering what's going on in my life lately?

First and foremost, I'm writing. Or rather, rewriting. My agent had, shall we say, issues with certain things in my latest effort. Issues that were at the start of the book. Issues that I could see and yep, she was right. Revisions are never delightfully pleasant, but they can be easy, not too bad, or OH LORDY! These revisions are in the OH LORDY! category. Whole scenes have disappeared, new scenes added. Some bits could be salvaged and worked into the new material, but if you've ever had to unravel a sweater and re-knit, or pick out a seam to sew again, you'll appreciate what that's like.

This had to happen in the spring, of course, when I have two gardens to get in shape.

 I've also been involved in a very exciting venture with some fellow authors. We're starting a cross-genre reading series in our city called Night Out With Authors. We've been busy lining up authors and a venue, and starting a blog, among other things. Our first Night Out is in September, featuring Mary Sullivan, Molly O'Keefe and Susanna Kearsley at the Tranzac Club in Toronto. You can find out more at the Night Out with Authors blog.

We have some family events coming up that require some planning and legwork, too, like my parent's 65th wedding anniversary (yes, that's right - 65!!), and few other social events as well. And more visits from my far-away son (YEAH!).

So blogging this summer will likely be sporadic. I'll probably be tweeting, though, because it's fast and easy. I'm WriterMargMoore on Twitter,and I hope you'll follow me there.

Have a great summer, everyone! Like the Terminator, I'll be back. I just don't know when.
