I'm Back (and as Crazy as Ever)!

*Cue AC/DC's Back in Black*

It's been an insane couple of weeks. We spent a week at our lake home celebrating the 4th of July and our 15th wedding anniversary, plus I've been getting ready to host my class reunion this week as well as working on my next book with my editor (Mind Benders—title in progress), writing the first draft of the sequel to The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life, and getting slammed with ideas for the NEXT book in line. Plus I'm getting ready to design a new book cover.

This is quite literally how I feel at the moment:
Do self-employed people in general put too much pressure on themselves to finish multiple things at once? Or is that an author thing? Maybe it's just an ADD thing. Regardless, it appears to be a "me" thing. Times like these I get frustrated, especially when I can't find time to read as much as I'd like, or watch my favorite TV series.

Hope all my US friends enjoyed the holiday. I love the hell out of this country and the 4th is my favorite holiday. I even have a tattoo of red, white and blue stars on my foot to prove it (plus to commemorate our anniversary).
Obviously I'm not here to say anything profund, but really just apologizing for the blogging silence. If I'm not committed anytime soon, I'll try to post sooner next time.

Glad you're proud and it's great that you're writing even more books.

That's right - be proud to be an American!
Don't stress. It will be all right.
Jan, did you know that word verification is on?

Sorry, JEN! I was typing without my brain there...

Thanks! What's word verification?

No worries! Glad you're back. I dream of those days when I'm self-employed and can stress about needing to get everything done at once! :) Have a wonderful weekend.

By word verification, Alex means that we have to type in a code to prove we're human. It deters some bloggers from returning to a site. Activating the setting to have no anonymous posts works well to keep the spamming away. Writer’s Mark
