"Well, I'm Back," He Said.

We could say that my June blogging break was very restful and relaxing, giving me time enough to enjoy writing and get a lot done on my to-do list. 

But that wouldn't be very truthful.

I had planned on doing some editing on CoaL, and also write another 50K on RoaL, but that really didn't happen. I wrote furiously until June 11, putting a good 19K under my belt, but then life caught up with me. Instead of trying to kill myself, I dropped the 50K challenge and devoted myself to editing. I fixed most of the problems in CoaL, and now I'm having relatives be my first company of Beta readers to critic me and help me get CoaL ready to publish sometime I-don't-know-when.

It was a decision well made. 

For one thing, I haven't even been home most of the last three weeks. We were at our classy blood cousins' house for 8 days in June, during which time we caught an awful cold, played way too much volleyball, and learned how to dishonestly honestly play the game of Bluff. It was epic. 

And now, I am currently sitting in the family room of our CBC's house for a Forth-of-July-week-long visit. Yesterday, we celebrated the birthday of our country with way too much food, lots of laughter, and tons of good old-fashioned games such as tag, Mother May I, and Red Rover. When did we ever become too old for games like those? Yes, I'm 19 years old, almost 20, and I had as much fun running around barefoot as the 10-year-olds I played with. 

So, to keep this post short, I just wanted to let you all know what's been happening to me these last couple of weeks I haven't been on Blogger, and now I must run. July isn't promising to be very time-friendly, either. But we'll just have to see what God has in store.

God bless!


  1. My, it sounds like you have had an eventful break! And no, you are never too old for Red Rover. Just last week I was babysitting ten kids under age eleven and we all played Red Rover, even the two year olds! It was so much fun. :D

  2. Welcome home! Really missed your posts, happy blogging!


  3. Welcome back to the blogging world! I'm glad to hear that you made progress on your goals, even if you didn't make them! And I'm looking forward to that elusive publishing date when you join the ranks of published authors!

    And I'm eighteen and still run around barefoot with my younger sibs and cousins. It's fun! (I even run around barefoot without them. I don't like shoes.)

  4. Kiri! It's so good to see you again! Sounds like you have indeed had quite a "break". I hope the rest of your summer will be delightful. ^_^ (And it really is lovely to see you post again.)
