Yikes, it's been awhile since I've blogged! I think I have some pretty good excuses, though. Two of them, both babies.
In January, I became a foster grandma. I knew that that was in the works, of course, but if you think writing a book is tough, try going through the process of becoming licensed to provide foster care. Makes revisions look like a cakewalk. But the process WAS completed by my son and his wife, and in January, they became foster parents to a baby. Believe me, it was as exciting as the call I got from an editor at Harlequin telling me they wanted to buy my first book. Even if the placement isn't permanent, it's still a thrill.
Then in February, I found out my daughter and her husband are expecting. Right around my birthday, too. Cue more excitement! And frankly, folks, I suggest you buy stock in Osh-Kosh, Michael's and Fabricland, because there's already been a whole lotta shoppin' goin' on!
I'm also working on a book. It was due late last Year-of-the-Medical-Crises. Fortunately, my very understanding publisher has allowed me to take my time to write it. However, as anybody who's written a book that required stopping, starting over, stopping and starting again can probably attest, it's not been an easy road. It's one I'm still on.
So it's been a bit of a "different" time for me. Fortunately, things are going well, but it's still uncharted waters for the next few months, so I can't say how often I'll be blogging. I'm much more likely to be tweeting, so if you want to follow the progress of my current manuscript (aka The Great Ragout because I threw everything and then some into the first draft), I suggest you follow me there -- @margmooreauthor
I hope everyone is enjoying a good year so far. I'm certainly having a much better one!
