It's been ages since I last blogged here. I've done some over at the Dark Side DownUnder, and a couple for my book blog, but nothing here.
There's many reasons, with the biggest one being that I have been very tired lately. Yes, CFS always reminds me to slow down when I try and run ahead. Frustrating, sure. Hard to establish routines - you bet. But I try. Just like I know sometimes I just have to take a break. Last week, I had two whole days away from the computer. No emails, no program scheduling for DSDU, no writing, no email loops, no blogs, nothing. I did some housework and errands, rested, watched tv, and read. And it was really refreshing. I had need that time away. And to be honest, I feel like I should do it more often.
I have just caught up on one of my Google Reader accounts, and I have noticed how much I now skim, rather than read. I just don't have the time. As is the same for commenting. I'd love to comment more on blogs that interest me and of writing buddies, but time and energy do not permit.
I also finished doing Angela James' fantastic 3 week 'Before You Hit Send: Self-Editing' Workshop. Well worth the time and the price. While I didn't use it to it's full potential due to health and family commitments (going through manuscript and posting bits), I did get a hell of a lot out of it. So if you are looking for an editing course, this one is a must.
The next course starts 11th July and goes until 1st August. You can find the details here.
I hope to be more regular again with my blogging.
