It's bizarre how, when life is different for a while, the work/writing-related things feel like they're compartmentalized in a barely accessible part of my brain.
Does this happen to you?
I've got mega-family in town right now (some of them are leaving this morning), and I feel as though I'm looking at this blog through tinted glass. I'm also feeling the slowly building pressure as we head toward Baker's Dozen season. Because--GUESS WHAT! The fun is starting sooner than you think.
As in, the first logline practice round will be later this month. (I hate loglines. Just so you know.)
(Okay, I only hate my loglines. They are on the low end of my skill set.)
Anyway, consider this your first heads-up for the Baker's Dozen Agent Auction. I'll post all about it next week, so those of you who are new to our party will understand what it's all about. All I'll say right now is--YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS.
In the meantime, tell me about your non-writing coping mechanisms. As in, when you're in the midst of a family visit or an unexpected event or anything that tears you away from your writing (and, indeed, the writing world in general--I've barely tweeted this week, so you know I'm out of my element!), how do you manage? Do you find that you can switch easily back and forth between The Mode and Real Life? Or do you twitch and gnash the entire time?
I am admittedly discombobulated! And something tells me I'm not alone.
Happy weekend and hugs to all! (Except those of you who were hiding behind chairs in our fantasy writers' lounge.)
(Oh, wait. That was most of you...)
