I haven’t blogged in, oh, a solid month. And you know what I just found out? 50 people are still checking this website every day.
Not much when I’m actually doing something on here, like, I don’t know, UPDATING MY BLOG. But I haven’t been doing that. And 50 lovely, wonderful, faithful people are still coming back. And it’s probably not even the same 50 people.
I feel so bad.
Thank you, 50 people, for sticking with me even though I have all but abandoned you. Truly, you rock. And as a reward for your rocking-ness, I give you:
Anne Riley’s 2010 Year In Review
Okay, yes. I am a bit slow on the uptake as far as my Year In Review goes. But, lest we forget, something happened recently that is taking up a good bit of my time.
So anyway, I’ve been a little busy. But that is NO EXCUSE to abandon my dear blog friends.
And now, without further delay, let’s talk about 2010. Here are some things that happened… and didn’t happen.
1. I wrote another book. Synthesis was the result of many months of imagining and planning and plotting and… well, you get the picture. And I really, really love it. My dear agent has read it once and sent me her big-picture-type edits, which I have done and sent back to her. Next step? Line edits. And then maybe some more edits. We’ll see.
2. My first book did not get published. But, we’re remaining positive and expecting great things to happen in 2011!
3. I got pregnant. And found out about it while trying to “rule out pregnancy” as the cause for some weird physical things that had been happening. Luckily we were in a really good place where we weren’t desperate to be pregnant but also would be excited if it happened, and whaddya know? It happened.
4. I had a baby. See above photo of our Christmas gift this year. We love her 🙂
Fact: That is *not* all that happened this year, but as I sit here and watch my baby squirm on the video monitor, I know she is about to wake up from her nap and I am incapable of thinking through anything else from this year. Lame, eh? Such is life.
Love you all and I hope to be around here more often!
