Jonesin'

So. A new year. The holidays are behind us, the dust has settled, and things are returning to normal.

Thank god.

For three weeks, I’ve been shopping or wrapping or packing or traveling. I’ve been to Christmas parties, family gatherings, and even a wedding. Every waking moment not already swallowed up by the day job has been occupied, leaving me unfocused, irritable, and borderline-depressed.

Three weeks without writing. Without editing. Without any real progress on my manuscript. Doesn’t sound like much? Ask any writer.

So here we are. 2006. Time to get back to work.
