Awesome Stuff on the Near Horizon

Today promises to be a grueling day: Two meetings, one of which promises to be filled with pointless and unproductive negativity, which suits me not at all. Worst of all, these meetings (one of which was called with less than 24 hours' notice) are being held right in the middle of my writing group. I thought I'd miss an hour of it; now it looks like I'll be missing the whole thing. For meetings.

Also, it's unseasonably hot, and dry, which means I'm cranky and have a nosebleed.

BUT... better things are on the horizon, for lo: I have a full summer to write! Even better: I have my mojo back. Two weeks ago, inspiration struck. After years of wrestling, I know what my next book is going to be doing. I pitch it to Dream Press at the 'zoo in a week. That's cool. But even cooler: I'm excited to write, and I actually have the time to do so.

Hell, yeah!

So bring on that meeting! Bring on two! Try to suck me down into the swamp of negativity, if you dare. I'll just be hanging out on shore, doing the butt-dance.

Yay! I'm glad you've got your mojo back. Can't wait to hear all about your project & your pitch to dream press!

Oh, trust me, H'ann, you will. I'm looking forward to making much more frequent use of that "Another Damn Book" tag over the next few months. :-D

(I'll also likely be posting A LOT about my mid-career slump, which I think is something that will not be unfamiliar to many others out there.)

SO FAMILIAR. I'm just settling into the bottom of one, I think, and would love to hear how things worked out for you!

Glad you've got your mojo back. And tell us more about your writing group so we can feast on writing inspiration.
