When I get really busy – with RL or the MS or the other MS or the tiny MS that’s really short – I don’t spend much time on blogs or Twitter or FB. It bums me, because I’m missing cool stuff like THIS POST, where Kate Hart breaks down YA sales by genre and six-figure deals. I’m bummed, not just because I like graphs too, but because there’s tons-o-information on the interwebs just waiting to edify my brain.
Information that can make an important difference in my understanding of the industry, or my writing, or my general knowledge of life, the universe, and everything.
There just isn’t time for it all.
So, I want to thank my blogger friends who keep blogging, my twitter friends who keep tweeting, and my facebook friends that keep sharing cool stuff like this. Even if my attention is momentarily occupied, and I miss some of the cool stuff, I’ll be back and ready to dive in again.
I especially want to thank all my commenters who sympathized and offered fashion help on my Wednesday post. That is precisely what I love about blogging – I thought I was just venting my fears, but it turns out not only are there people who feel the same way, but there were some who could help!
Next week will be a busy time again. I have an (amazing!) rare opportunity to have the house to myself for about four days. I’m going to use it to enter a writing fugue and start a new book. During that concentrating time, I’m going to be disciplined and stay off the interwebs as much as possible (we’ll see how successful I am!!). I’ll be back next Friday, internet and attention starved.
Unless I cave and come back sooner.
Happy Weekend! And thanks for being awesome!
