Accidental Radio Silence

This is a placeholder more than anything else to apologize for my relative radio silence. It wasn’t intentional. Lots of life has been happening and unfortunately the blog had to suffer. More to come in April for sure, but hopefully some this month, too.

And I definitely need to write a post on the differences in seals and sea lions because it’s THAT time of year.

If you need something to read in the meantime, I reviewed Stargate (1994) for International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club.
Over at Paper Droids I talked about the subversive nature of “selfies” given the historical context of self-portraiture.

More soon! ^_^

December 1: post-NaNoWriMo and looking to the new year

So.

NaNoWriMo is over. I am slightly exhausted but mostly really satisfied. I finished the month with over 75,000 words, which brings my grand total to over 120,000 words. Woot! I’m giving myself at least the next week off to let my poor brain recuperate, then it’s into rewrite-landia.

I know the blog got a little ignored during November. All the words were going to the book. That’s expected. And now that I’m done with that first draft, post ideas are coming back to me. I’m taking notes. But the thing is…

I think I’m going to change the format of this blog a little bit. Same topics will still be covered, but I’m thinking less of my day-to-day life and more of my thoughts and opinions on things. Maybe I’ll even make you laugh. We shall see.

None of the old posts will go away, but the site itself will probably get a bit of a facelift. Just as a warning.

So there we go!

I hope everyone has had a good November, and here we go, careening into the holiday season. Geronimo!
