I've been busy.
I wish I could say I've been busy on writerly things. I do have a new story I've been working on, but since I'm still over there on the couch hammering the story out in red pen on my trusty notebook, it's slow going.
No, I've been busy cleaning. (Yeah, shocked the crap out of me, too.) I know it's totally because I'm avoiding work. I mean, why else would I get the sudden urge to rearrange the living room furniture? Sure, I told myself I needed to move things around so I could decorate, but I decorated the house as it was last year with no problems, so I was just fooling myself.
Why, other than sheer avoidance, would I have tackled cleaning the vent hood on my stove yesterday? It's a totally disgusting job. And I know my landlady never bothered to soak the vent filter, so it was probably full of grease from past renters. :gag: Well, not anymore. It's all clean and sparkly now.
So, the house is clean - mostly - and decorated for the holidays. See?
Other than that, not much is up here. I do have one piece of news that I'm not quite ready to share yet, as all the deets haven't been hammered out yet. And, of course, there's the new blog: The Unpublished Writers' Guide to Survival. I wish I had NEWS - like an interested agent or a publishing contract. Maybe in 2013.
How about you? What's up in your world?
