Absence explained

I am so sorry for my absence.  Following the Chicago trip I had to rush back to Raleigh to work at the station, leaving my kids in Nashville with my parents.

No kids? you ask.  Why no posts, then?

Despite the quiet house, I haven't been there.  I have worked every day and had events nearly every night.

I know most you work full-time jobs and still manage to post...but this is unusual for me, so I hope you will forgive my absence.  The plan is to get posts back in cue and get back to blogging.

I miss you all!

And a big welcome back to Crystal of Crystal Clear Proofing!  You've been missed.


  1. I understand. I've got some potential jobs coming up, but I'm a bit wary on how my blogging will hold up. Though the more comments I get, the more active I'll be. Something about comments, it's like crack me, as long as they're there I'll always be.

  2. Well, I'm glad you're back. I was wondering where you went to. But I know when things get really busy, blogging is often the last thing on your mind.


  3. Univarn- I hear you. I was actually at the top of my comment numbers when all of this hit. Bad planning on my part. So, with a little forsight, I'm sure you'll be fine!

    Clarissa- It's been really important to me over the last year. An outlet for my voice...Thanks for the welcome back!

  4. Glad to hear everything is OK (if hectic).
    Seriously there is no need to apologise, keeping 'the day job' ticking over needs to be the first priority.
    Take care


  5. Al- It's funny b/c I'm just freelance...So if I work a lot, it totally throws me off! Thanks for the understanding words.

    Also-I've been working on this template, too...Anyone NOT able to see any of the elements?

  6. Thanks, Diane. Each day seems to rush by...And no time! I'll have to work on that.

  7. Real life definitely gets in the way! But that's okay, because we need real lives in order to be good writers. Take care :)

  8. We need that from time to time, and fortunately, our blogs understand that :)

    Because no one should have to apologize. :-)

    Welcome back.
