The Reports of my Death.......

....are FALSE, I swear it! On the other hand, considering that most of my reading for the intervening months between the last post and this have been about Spiritualists, Spiritualism, mediums, &c &c, if this WERE coming from the Great Beyond you might not even be able to tell.

HOWEVER. I think summertime just blasts me. It's true, we like being outdoors and all, but I seem to have no inclination for a lot of my usual pursuits. That -- and travelling great distances (which always knocks me off my pins) have largely occupied me.

But I sense those first little tendrils of the Change of Seasons and am again settling in and getting out my stories and am beginning to feel the delicious calm that comes from tucking into my nest. I'll be back (said in my best Schwarzenegger accent...) and there are good things ahead. The Fall Retreat of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is coming up (and I'm IN, although I almost missed the deadline) and ... then....

LAYDEEZ AND GENNULMENS, sharpen your pencils. There's another NANOWRIMO on the horizon. James, if I haven't lost you ferever, let's be Non-Procrastination Pals this year! (Are you going to do it again? You BETTAH!)

Hi DH! So glad to see you back in the ether. I'm excited for NaNoWriMo too! Have you an idea yet?

Before I can get started on NaNo I need to get a second draft of my last one done. That shouldn't be to hard, right? 2 months to rewrite 30 chapters, only a chapter every other day. Shouldn't be too hard...

As for this year. I'll be there with bells on! I already have an idea that has been brewing and wrote up an outline already. (Actually its the story that I was going to do for the mini NaNo that Glynis was trying to do in April.)

I can't wait to see you at Starbucks again this year. We'll get it done for sure!
