I’ve just been working. The seventy-hour weeks on Think Sideways look like they’re going to continue until I have it done. This is apparently just how much time it’s going to take me to stay even with the class. I don’t even want to think about what it would take for me to pull a few lessons ahead.
But I’ve had some emails and notes and messages on Facebook from friends worrying and wondering if everything is all right. It is. I’m fine, my family is fine, and everything is okay.
I’m just very, very tired and working all the time. I finished writing Lesson 10 for the course this week, which means 14 more planned lessons, plus, I think, one or two freebies I’m throwing in at the end. So figure I’ll be scarce here for another 14-17 weeks while I get the course done, and maybe a week or two after that while I sleep.
I’ve been writing the diary since 2001, and I’m not gone. And I’m learning so much writing this course, some of which will, in various forms, show up here, so eventually you’ll get some cool stuff out of it, too. Writing about writing has always been my vacation from writing, though, and I’ve discovered that when writing about writing is my work, writing about writing about writing is NOT a vacation. 😀
Thanks for hanging in, and for caring enough to check up on me.
