...you're just so high maintenance. Okay, maybe not high maintenance, exactly, since blogger makes things pretty easy for me in the point and click department. But you and me, the thing we have is magical and fun and I look forward to seeing your face every day. You've helped me meet tons of great people, and help me work out the problems I've had with the kids, and for that I'll always be grateful.
Problem is, these kids need to come first. Poor girls, getting only scraps of my attention while I gallivant around with you all day. I expend all my energies making you look good, when I should be shaping them into the best little novels they can be. And since it's not really a choice between you and them on top of work and family and friends, we're going to have to slow things down a little. Five posts a week was great while it lasted, but now I feel like we've run out of things to say to one another.
“All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ~George Orwell
I'm a YA writer who delves into urban fantasy, paranormal and romance, and who loves reading good books almost as much as writing them.
When not writing—or working—I enjoy daydreaming, drinking tea, and walking in cemeteries. I used to spend the rest of my time checking my inbox for manuscript requests, but am now proudly represented by Rosemary Stimola, of Stimola Literary Studio.
