I've been missing for a good 3 months, but I've returned. Not in black, as the title suggested, but I was listening to Back in Black by AC/DC when I started this and it seemed an appropriate rip off.
Anyhoo, just a quick entry to say what I've already said above. Apparently pregnancy = no writing, but now that I've had the baby, I've got my mojo back and am preparing myself for another assault on the publishing world. I'm happy to report that although I didn't make the short-list for the RWA comp I entered, I did do quite well, and the judge's comments have me going in the right directions for a possible success with an agent or publisher. So I'm making a commitment to finally get this MS finished and send it out into the stratosphere. My motto for 2007 was It's Happening! and things did happen, just not the things I initially thought. But it was still a great year. I'll get back to you for a motto for 2008, in the meantime, I'm using up my limited writing time, so I'm off.
