Well, I think it’s safe to say that October got away from me.
I’d like to say I wasn’t posting because I was on such an intense writing streak that I couldn’t possibly tear myself away from the project, or because I was so busy doing fabulously exciting things, but alas, that was not the case (although I did have a lapful of puppies last Sunday—that was pretty great).
To be perfectly honest, I just needed a little break.
I’ve been working on a rewrite this month, trying to beef up the connection between my plot and theme (for more on why that balance is so important, check out K.M. Weiland’s post The Greatest Love Triangle in Fiction) and it’s left me a little mentally tired when it comes to everything else. Hence the puppy pick-me-up last weekend.
Anyway, now that I’m making some headway, I’m hoping I’ll have a little more energy left over so I can get back to posting here regularly again.
