State of the Blogger

Hi everyone!

Wow, it’s crazy how fast I can fall out of the habit of blogging. I posted on a regular schedule for the last four or so years, then decided to take May off and … now you barely hear from me. (I say a lot more on Twitter. You can follow me @jackieleawrites if you want!) I actually have a post a week lined up for the rest of the sumimer, plus I have ideas for other topics I want to blog about. I just have no time. And don’t know where to find any extra.

My house is still undergoing renovations, but it is really coming together. I LOVE IT, even if it’s still a total mess. I’ve been taking pictures along the way, so I’ll show you some once everything is done!

I’ve (barely) started revisions on my next novel, but I’m really, really excited to find a rhythm. (Again, not sure where or how to carve out extra time.)

Truest comes out in 9.5 weeks! My head is spinning!

But these are all GOOD things, and I am tremendously grateful. Who am I that I should have so many dreams come true?

If only I could add a few more hours in each day. Wouldn’t it be great if we had 28 hour days? That extra four hours would be amazing. Think how much you could accomplish!

Oh well. It’s not worth lamenting over something that’s unchangeable.

I’m off to rest a little (is 8 pm too late for a short nap? even if I plan to stay up late writing? are there nap rules?) and then dive into Mill City Heroes.

I miss you guys. Tell me about your lives: what are you most looking forward to this summer? I want to be excited with you!

  1. Glad to hear you’re doing well, albeit busy 🙂
    I’m most looking forward to working with my newly obtained literary agent (ah!), revising, and I’m very much looking forward to reading Truest! Woohoo!

  2. I’m kind of out of the blogging habit right now too, but it’s definitely a good thing. More time to enjoy the summery goodness! I’m looking forward to the new deck we’re building! Once it’s done, I fully intend to work outside every day until October. 🙂
