Bad Blogger Redux

Yes, I've been MIA again. Really, I haven't gone anywhere but somehow my life still seems to slip by too fast. It's these kids I tell ya'! Not really, of course. I love staying busy with them and helping out with their activities watching them experience new things. The truth is, I've been kind of bummed about the whole publishing experience lately and it hasn't made me feel very...inspired.

Sometimes God just says no.

With no explanation.

And frankly, it hasn't been very easy to hear this time around.

Still, even with everything that hasn't been happening in my writing career, I did manage to finish a novel in January. A novel that I really, really love. A novel that, if I'm fair, might not have gotten written if I hadn't gotten so many "No, thank you's" last year. And I suppose that's a positive thing. At least that's the way I'm gonna try to look at.

But right now I'm in that spot of asking, "Okay, Lord, then what next?" and I simply don't have an answer at the moment. So after talking with my hubby, I'm going to take a small break. This month is going to be pretty intense since I am working with the Christian Youth Theater on their production of Wizard of Oz and as Assistant Director - I will be there nearly every waking hour. It will be a fabulous show and maybe by the time it's over, I'll know which direction God wants me to head next.

And maybe I'll even have a bit more time for blogging:-)
