Am I? Doctor appointments, hospital visits, medicine, home-school, writing, preparing to query, driving to violin/guitar/horseback riding lessons, blogging/connecting with all of my blogging pals that I have truly come to love, housework, farm chores, (this morning I walked our creek bank cleaning debris that the husband had burned and all of it didn't burn. I mean really! Does he actually think ALUMINUM FOIL burns?) are all on my list of things to do. Well one of our boys is a master guitarist and teaches guitar, so I really don't have to drive for those lessons. =)
So am I a slacker? I ask this question, because I have slacked on blog posts this week. BIG TIME. Hmmmmm,
Slacker: somebody who avoids doing something, especially work or military service. Love, Webster. Uh, he didn't really sign his dictionary with love, but I thought that was a pretty good affect.
Ol' Webster was a good old guy. He wanted us to spell words write not rong. =) Uh, misspelling on purpose there. So he gave us a dictionary. So from his pen, he tells me that I am not really a slacker. I don't shirk work. I just have too many things going on right now.
Spring is coming. And spring on a farm is a big happening. Especially a farm with horses. They like to eat in the winter. Gotta get the spring cutting of hay. (It's the best.) They told me so. So, fertilizing the pasture, putting lime out on the pasture, planting, hay gettin', cleaning, etc., etc..
So I am NOT a slacker. Thank you Noah. I am not lax, not avoiding work. Just have too much of it.
I still have lots and lots to say about James Scott Bell's lovely book, Revision & Self-Editing, so I will post more on that after unplug week. And during unplug week, I WILL get all agent blogs visited, decide on a few more agents and I WILL query shortly after that. GULP. This brings both excitement and nervous tension. And a few headaches. Because I will ONLY query when SEVENTY TWO HOURS is ready.
How about you? Do you think you are slack if you miss a few blog posts? Or if you don't get around to visit everyone? Oh Elana. HOW DO YOU DO IT? (^_^) I mean I know how she does it. But it doesn't work the same way for me as it does for her. All those tabs makes my dang computer freeze.
I'm unplugging next week. I will see you after that. Have a safe, happy, wonderful writing time. I truly love you all!
