Here is what my life consists of at the moment:
1) Morning sickness, which, as anyone who’s carried a child can tell you, reserves the right to strike at ANY time of day and to last for as long as it DARN WELL PLEASES.
But, BUT BUT BUT, the nausea is supposed to mean that GOOD THINGS are afoot. So I try not to complain.
Even though I’m also trying to look after an 18-month-old who doesn’t understand the phrase, “Please get your elbow out of Mama’s tummy.”
Yep, things are INTERESTING around here at the moment.
2) Revisions on SHADOWS OF THE HIDDEN (The Clearing). Because staring at a computer screen can kick my nausea into high gear, I’m taking my revisions very sloooowly and working as much as I can whenever I feel good. AND, you know what’s awesome? I’m about a week ahead of schedule! *dances* *goes a bit pale* *stops dancing and sits on the couch*
3) ANOTHER SEKRIT SECRET. Now listen, y’all. I realize that about half of you are probably starting to hate me a little bit, because I’ve been full of nothing but RAINBOWS and UNICORNS lately.
And I know how LOTS OF SECRETS AND GOOD NEWS! can grate on the nerves, especially with us creative types.
You’re probably thinking, “She has MORE good news? GIVE ME A BREAK!” And then maybe there are some other words in there that I’m not comfortable putting on my blog.
But I must ask you to bear with me for one more AMAZING development in my writing career, which I will share with you sometime in the next week or two, whenever everything is finalized.
And now I want to know: how was your weekend? Any good news for you? Did you vomit a rainbow? Have any tips for relieving the morning sickness?
