Confessions of a Thoughtless Blogger

Oh beloved blog o' mine, how I've neglected you...
And all my blog-buddies, whom I've tried to visit on a semi-regular basis, but haven't been a very good commenter, I'm sorry! But it's been for a good reason.
Two, in fact:

1. Sleep. Desperately trying to catch up, which means in bed by midnight, not 2am. To be honest, this isn't a voluntary stance... I had to give up caffeine as a result of the gallbladder attack and dang y'all, it's a bitch. I can barely make it through the morning and daren't sit down between 3pm-5pm or I can't stop my head from bobbing.

2. I'm on the homestretch for my current wip. I know, I said that last time, but I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe by Monday or Tuesday, if I can catch a few hours over the weekend.

This weekend is the Toronto Romance Writers meeting and I look forward to meeting fellow blogger Julia from the Atlantic chapter. (Hi Julia *waving* - looking forward to our lunch!)

Eve Silver will be giving the lecture - and you know I writer-crush on Eve. Man that woman writes sexual tension like no other. I'm currently reading her new urban fantasy Driven (Eve Kenin), from Dorchester's new SHOMI line. But more on that when I'm finished.

What on your calendar?

I know EXACTLY what you are going through because of the coffee. I have to admit, I'm actually back to drinking it again. I have to quit. I'm starting to feel dizzy...

And major cheering going on for you! You'll see THE END soon. To quote the wonderful Tempest Knight....

*pompom swish*

Amy Ruttan said...

YA for the end of the tunnel!!!


I'm reading Driven as well and it rocks. I love the imagery of the frozen wasteland she has created.

Wylie Kinson said...

Thanks Christine. I seriously don't know if I can keep up the coffibacy (coffee + celibacy)
I'm ready to crack. I'll just have to have the Ty 3's handy in case :O
(that's a yawn symbol, btw, not an OMG)

Amy - I'm enjoying Driven too! See you tomorrow :)

Oh, Wylie -- I feel for you on the coffee. I really don't think I could go without it. I'd probably fall on my face. ;-)

I hope you can catch up on your sleep. And wow, yay that you're on the home stretch for your WIP! I'm cheering you on! Go, Go, Go! :-D

I rarely drink coffee - but since I've started picking my son up from his night-shift job and giving him driving lessons before the sun is up, Timmy's has been the first stop. (Hmm, maybe that explains the all nighter I pulled writing earlier this week.) Exhaustion is one of the reasons I wasn't planning on going to the TRW meeting this month. Until that is someone sent me an invite begging me to go to a lunch before hand. How could I resist such pletty pleas! (Yes, I deliberately left off that last e)

Wylie Kinson said...

Leah - I'm glad you're putting sleep on the back burner for us ;)
Grab a Timmy's on the way!

wahoo - i am not alone in my bloggy-badness. i don't feel so guilty now. dropping to my knees in gratitude. okay - clumsiness damn it.
gah - you're going to be there too with Christine and Amy and Julia???
well, crappy-poo. i think y'all need to pickup and move down HERE.

Wylie Kinson said...

RHI!! No, you're not alone. Seems like the busy-bug has us all.

And yes - having you in the neighborhood would certainly be uplifting!!
