Back in the Saddle

Yes, it's been awhile since I posted.  Suffering from guilt, I routinely avoided checking blogs.  The dedication of others needled me.  I was letting those precious creative moments pass me by without my usual focus.

I could bore you with the list of reasons why I have been absent from my usual literary pursuits but, it doesn't matter.  Time to sink into my imaginary world that I've missed.  Time to evaluate my new storyline and tweak my latest MC.  The beauty of time away is a clear perspective of my work.  I can see things I love, even weeks later and others that make me scratch my head and ask, "What was I thinkin'?"

It's also time to submit.  The word makes me cringe.  My latest submission generated a request for a partial but ended quickly when I received a note that the requesting agent was leaving the agency.  My poor manuscript was a causality of an ever-changing landscape.

Time to saddle up, circle to wagons, rope them in tight... Enough!  Can you tell I recently returned from Texas?  Yes, it's me astride that steer...dressed for the pool.  Such a city girl!

Simply, it's time to write.
