Yikes

Two months. Wow. Time flies when you keep telling yourself, I'll blog next week.

So, I'm blogging now.

First, I apologize for not having added to this in a while. I also apologize to those I need to e-mail, which I have yet to catch up on (and I feel guilty as hell about some of the extremely tardy e-mails I need to send).

Second, I guess I haven't blogged for a few reasons. Nothing much to talk about in way of writing for one (and what I do have will be below the reasons). I also really just realized today that I have been in a bit of a funk. And on top of everything for the last few weeks I have felt drained and exhausted no matter how much sleep I presumably get (I say presumably because i think I spend more time waking up and trying to get back to sleep thean actually sleeping, but I can't be sure because my time sense is never good when trying to sleep).

When it comes to writing. I still don't have anything out in circulation - this stems from I don't have much confidence in anything I do right now, especially writing. My self-esteem is also lost - I think it might be somewhere near the center of the earth being melted away by the hot core - please send it home if you see it, although it's only a little guy, so you might not be able to see something the size of a flea.

I have been doing the crit group thing with some friends from SHU. That's been enjoyable...well, when my stories aren't up - lol. No, seriously, I have been having fun with our weekly chats and critiquing their stuff. :)

So, I'm not sure what to do with my current issues. I think I need to go back to one of my novel projects, but Daina is still kind of on my depressed list. Perhaps I can work on the Shepherd of Dreams one...or maybe I should get more feedback on Mind and revise the damn thing yet again before I send out more queries. And NaNoWriMo is coming up in a month too. If I participate this year, I think it will definitely just be me setting a word count goal instead of starting yet another new novel - I have enough started I need to work on - starting another will get me into more trouble.

That's all that's going on in my writing life at the moment. Kind of boring and depressing. I have removed my word count meters for now, until I feel they are needed again. Hope everyone else is doing well. :)
