The Absentee Blogger

Bad, blogger. It's been a whole week, and nothing from me!

Not for lack of trying or lack of inspiration. Just lack of time and stuff piling faster than I can get rid of it. (Much of it good stuff, like extra freelance work, but still.)

A couple of bits until I post again:

  • Last Friday, I guest-posted at Christine Bryant's blog about the joys (and constant mistreatment) of being an English major.
  • On a similar topic, in November, I get to speak to a class of freshman English majors at BYU. I took that very class (more years ago than I care to admit) and now get to be on the other side . . . published, just as I hoped. COOOOL!
  • Today I posted over at Precision Editing Group's Writing on the Wall blog about the crazy timeline that is publishing.
  • A couple of weeks ago I got to speak at the UVU Book Academy. The next day I had a book signing at BYU Bookstore, where I handed out fudge samples. One of my daughters was my sample helper. Catch photos of both at Krista Jensen's blog.
  • Last weekend, I spoke at the AF Arts Council conference. Got to hang with one of my bestest friends ever, Josi Kilpack, meet John Brown, chat with writer buddies I've met through events like this (like The Damsel and Taffy), and met lots of other new writers.
  • I have no book signings this week for the cookbook, but I have TWO next week at the Lehi/AF Costco. Watch my sidebar for details.

    Now, back into the fray! (Read: go vacuum, empty the dishwasher, and sort laundry. The glamorous life of a writer . . .)

So glad for so many good things happening in your life. =] I've begged my hubby for your chocolate cookbook as a gift but I think I might not be patient enough to wait for it. ;)

You've probably heard this one:

"What's the difference between an English major and a pizza?

A pizza can feed a family of four."


But obviously some English majors do feed their families chocolate.

I get the same kind of flack for being a Communication Studies major. I especially hear it from my brother...the Electrical Engineer. Well, don't break pace. It sounds like you've got a good momentum built up!

Wow you are living the glamorous life! Congrats and don't get writers cramp from all those book signings!

Even writers who don't have something in the can continue to write because it is something we enjoy doing. It edifies us. We are fulfilled when we write. To all of those who love to write all I can say is Write On.

You are staying very busy that's both good and bad I bet! You should write on comma splice next I'm notorious for them (:

Annette Lyon said...
