4 Months

Yes, it's been 4 months since I posted anything on my blog. I'm not going to berate myself though because I have an excellent excuse.

The couch has been my home for many weeks, when I'm not at work (which I am even working less hours now). I tend to avoid the comp at home a lot, and I am just starting to use it more often (hey, I even wasn't playing hardly any Everquest...maybe just logging in one day a week and going afk as I crawled back to the couch).

So, why you ask? Or maybe you don't ask since likely no one checks my blog anymore since it's been so long since I posted. :( Well, I'm pregnant! And all day sickness (morning sickness is such a misnomer) had me wishing I didn't have to move from my curled up position on the couch. I watched far too many America's Next Top Model marathons, horrible horrible, among other bad TV. I mean, I didn't even feel well enough to concentrate on reading a book!

Yes, this means that since I got pregnant, writing has been on hold. And now that I am starting to feel better, I am getting the itch to write, but mostly when I'm at work and trying to get to sleep at night (not writing for this long makes me feel like I'm missing a limb!). Hopefully soon I'll be able to get something down, but the disaster of a house needs to get cleaned and organized, or my baby will be surrounded by squalor when s/he is born.

I did sign up for NaNo, but I am only going to use it as a word count tracker for that month - don't plan to stick to one novel, let alone starting a new one fresh (I have too many rough drafts that need to be completed first).

I promise to post more often now, since I don't feel like throwing up at every twitch of an eyelash, but I also will likely be posting some stuff about my pregnancy, since my little one is what's on my brain most of the time nowadays. So, you might get more "life of a writer" than "talking about writing" over the next few months. ;)

Oh, and my due date is late March/early April if anyone wants to know! I am restraining myself from putting a pregnancy ticker on my blog - heh. That would REALLY be off the subject of my blog, wouldn't it?

Happy writing, all!
