I'm alive, just crazy busy

It's been accounting and tax time. I'm terrible, leaving everything from the whole year to do before filing. I love math. Accounting is evil. Accounting is arbitrary, by my view.

Also commuting back and forth between DC and Syracuse trying to get the house in rentable shape. Just got back to DC. Platooning two cars to get the convertible down here where it is hot hot hot already.

I keep thinking some creative energy is just going to appear. I'm going to have to figure out how to give it some space to breathe. Set aside a morning. Maybe unplug the internet . . .

Wow, you are busy! No wonder your creative muse has taken a vacation. I deeply envy you the hot weather! Sadly, our April is much cooler than normal. Today barely reached 40. We should be having days in the 60's regularly with a few in the 70's.

When you get a chance, unplug the internet and relax. The best thing for me was to have mine off for a couple of days. The cable from pole to house needed replaced, so I was without phone or internet off and on for a week, but a couple of days when it completely died. Luckily, they fixed it easily at no cost to us. I really do hate to be offline! I probably should seek out a 12-step program for that.

But it did give me a chance to do some undistracted reading. I put Resonance on my kindle by way of converting it through Flagfic.com. And it looks so nice on there with it's cover art. I almost have more fanfic on the kindle than regular books. Almost!

Anyway, good luck with the muse. Enjoy the weather. Sounds like a morning on the deck with fresh ground coffee and scones is just the thing. No wait, a morning locked up with the laptop, writing. An evening with margaritas on the deck, after writing.

I had been wondering what was up with you. Whether your posting what was, I assume, the VERY LAST chapter in parts/drafts on your LJ was an EVIL TEASE ... nah, just joking. (I never read those drafts because I didn't want to be spoilt.)

Accounting is, indeed, evil. Given your profession I assume you're well acquainted with Scot Adams's portrayal of accounting departments in Dilbert as groups of trolls?

I selfishly tender my best wishes that you find some creative time! :-)

Still checking
I, too, am checking regularly to see how you are doing...I am laughing at the accounting references because I am one of those accountants. However I have clients and help them with tax problems, so maybe I am on the good side?

Love Dilbert!

I have so enjoyed every word of your Harry Potter story and know you will eventually find a good closure. Glad you have a real life that is real....I can relate to having a thousand interests and things going on all the time.

myself, I'm staying connected by checking on my numerous seedlings constantly and getting my garden boxes ready for transplanting.

Have a great Spring and hope things start settling down for you soon.

Hey, I ran across this today and thought it was something you might be interested in checking out!!! I'm amazed at the rapid way that the publishing/ebook industry is changing.

haven't got your spark of creativity back yet?
Don't be gone too much longer! I really miss your writing.
