I’m Sorry

by Madeleine Rex

I’m sorry!

I’m sorry I haven’t blogged.

I’m sorry I haven’t finished a single book in February.

I’m sorry I have no blog post ideas.

I’m sorry I don’t tweet often enough.

I’m sorry I have 250+ unread emails, one of which might be your blog post.

I’m sorry I haven’t made much progress on my book in weeks.

I’m sorry I’ve disappeared.

I’m trying to figure out how to fix all this. I want to spend just as much time with you as I used to, but that seems more and more difficult every day. I want to give advice and rant and just talk with you. I’m working on it. My life is a WIP.

I’ve been trying to come up with new ideas and new ways of approaching various aspects of my life. I’m starting track at the end of February (I’m as shocked as you are). I’ll have practice 5 days a week from 3:25 to 5:45. Instead of watching television with my family at night, I’m going to start writing again. I’m hoping to make a lot of progress during the track season (February 28th through May 5th).

I’ll also set aside a day of the week to stock up on blog posts instead of writing. I know this is a book blog, but I’d also like to touch a bit more on my life in general. I’m not turning this into a journal (you wouldn’t want to read it. I wouldn’t want to write it.), but I’d like to take Saturdays to post recipes. I love baking. And what’s better than baked goods and books on a Saturday evening?

Anyway, I wanted to check in and let you know that I am, indeed, alive.

I certainly hope that all of you are still alive as well!
