Blog On!

I'm back. We ended up using some tax return cash to get a new laptop. It wasn't the MacBook Pro I had my eye on (we settled for a cheap Toshiba to get us by for now) but it's a computer. Anyway - I will have to start getting more creative now on my excuses for not writing here. In the dead of winter it's hard to get inspired for Halloween, but I have had an idea or two lately that I think might turn into something interesting come October. I have been writing steadily every day (minus the weekends) for about an hour and a half a day, and have only now come across my first real block. I'm hoping I can work through this plot roadblock and get back on the road. We shall see...

Go Figure.

Just when I get into the groove of blogging again, my laptop goes up in smoke. The bulb in the monitor fizzled out, which apparently costs just as much as a new laptop to replace. So we're in the market right now, but have not found anything we can agree on. In the meantime, I'm using a crummy old computer down in the dungeons to type this, which explains my lack of posts lately. Yeah, yeah, yeah... there's always a reason for not writing. In the meantime, work progresses nicely on my writing projects (dig the irony?) - Halloween planning is in full swing - and spring is right around the corner... isn't it?*
