I haven't been posting much to this blog...or anywhere...for quite a few months. I've been sleeping. Turns out, I've got chronic Epstein-Barr disease--a virus with no cure. You just have to wait it out and keep pushing.
But it wreaks hell on writing. I've gone back to the first novel I was trying to peddle after my agent got ill and left me alone again in the wilderness. After managing to do a pretty aggressive edit in moments of clarity, I've been sending out queries, but now I'm happy with one or two every few days rather than two or three a day.
As for writing, there's really little I can do, alas. The last week or so has been pretty good, and late last night I started fooling around with a straight noir crime novel/story. I came up with the opening line, "The glass was half empty," and went from there. I do envy writers who can outline books and then write them. Once I outline something, whether it's fiction or a business article, I completely lose interest in it.
Anyway, I'm going to try to resurrect this blog and find interesting articles and links...as long as I'm not asleep. Right now, I need a nap, LOL.
