The One on a Break

First, just a reminder: I'm signing at BEA and I would love to see you!

Friday Five Reasons Why I Haven't Been Posting:

1. Work, and traveling for work--I was in Texas two weeks ago, and was in Florida for about five days. It's nice to get out of the office and see authors, educators, and librarians, but it's exhausting stuff + having to come back and catch up on everything in the office.

2. Revisions, and a fast-approaching deadline--My computer's battery bloated right on up and caused all sorts of problems with the casing and the trackpad, which has prevented me from getting much revision work done (+ the aforementioned busybusybusy work stuff). My deadline is in July and between now and then I have ALA Annual, which is arguably the biggest conference we attend. I hope you understand why I'd rather be using my little free time to revise rather than to blog.

3. Nothing much to say about anything--Really, my life is super boring. The most excitement I had outside of traveling was going to see Thor in a theater full of squealing fanboys and fangirls.

4. Really feeling burnt-out on blogging/tweeting/etc. and wishing I didn't have to do it at all--Basically, I am turning into a 90-year-old woman. I don't know if it's because I've been blogging in one form or another since I was 13, but it's losing a bit of luster for me, and the older I get, the more I want some kind of privacy. The best thing about blogging and tweeting is that I get to stay in touch with all of you--but I don't want to be one of those people who have 50,000 tweets about eating, revising, the sads, etc. and I'm not sure you'd want that from me anyway. Of all of the networking sites, I'm probably the most active on Tumblr, and mostly because the reblogging function appeals to my laziness.

5. Life in general

My revisions are due at the beginning of July, and while I might post once in a while between now and then, they'll probably be few and far between. Sorry! Back in a few weeks, hopefully...
