Okay. I'm back. I've been busy doing all sorts of things like moving from Alaska to California, flying from the WC to the EC, and sending my son off to college <big gulp>. For those of you who have never done that, it is one of the hardest things I've ever done. I did not expect the empty nest to be so, well, empty. Consequently, I've done what any other writer would do under the same circumstances: I developed a charcter who is sending her only child off to college, too. Trust me, it helps.
Most days, I have been working hard on my new novel, a romance set on Cape Cod. Some days, it goes well. Other days, not so good. Today was a good day. I only got 376 words done, but I also added and subtracted a lot, so that number could be higher. The important thing - again - is I wrote. The alternative would have been to clean off my desk or unpack some of those items which are still in boxes... Oh, and I also made chili. (It's very good.)
I also spent way too much time updating my website which still needs much work, but at least the Home page is current: http://www.barbaralarmonfailing.com
