I meant to blog last week.
I really did. Then I ended up on 5 planes, 1 with mechanical issues - luckily discovered before take off, and, well ... 5 planes, 4 states, lots of running from gate to gate and the interwebz did not see as much of me, nor I of it, as I'd have liked.
The other thing that is tough is the holidays and all those familial and friendish commitments that come up. So with that in mind, I'm just gonna go the no pressure route and call it good for the year.
I wish everyone and their familys health and happiness this holiday and into the new year. May you be safe, loved, and have plenty of time to enjoy your time together.
I'll be back after the new year!

1) I'm in the playoffs! This first year of ever playing Fantasy Football and my (randomly drafted) team finished the regular season in the #1 seat and we're in the playoffs! Woohoo! I stand a chance of winning! *knocks on wood* Not bad for beginner's luck, right?

Speaking of direction, I've been working on a (sorta) new project. Wrapping up a first draft of a contemporary YA full of summer, funnel cake, and carnival rides. Herein lies the problem: it's so not summer outside and I've lost my direction a bit.
It takes me FOREVER to get my brain back in warm weather mode. I mean, it's December in Utah. Albeit, we've been a little lacking in the snow department, but it's not shorts and tanktop season by any means. I feel like the autumn and winter have misdirected me and now I'm floundering, trying to figure out where I was originally going.
So I'm hunkering down with all my summer songs and playlists, covering my desk with sunshine and carnival ride pictures, and hoping these last few thousands of words just write themselves ... ha! Well, you know what I mean!
What "One Thing" (haha, sorry, couldn't help myself!) do you do to help keep yourself going in the "write" direction? Music? Movies? Video games and tea parties?

Looking for some help out there.
I've been sporadic with my blogging recently and I'm trying to figure out how to change that. I really miss the interaction with the blogosphere, but at the same time, I'm trying to find something engaging to blog about, something that is helpful to followers, or even just interesting for a couple minutes of your time.
So I'm looking to you out there for some help!
What would you like to see more of on my blog ...

Reading related posts? Book reviews and recs? Author interviews?
Random stuff about cute animals?
Publishing related posts - links to where I stay caught up on what's going on in the biz?
