Lost . . . Non-TV Version

Ever feel like you are so totally behind the curve, you don't know whether to step on the gas to catch up with the car miles ahead of you or drive off that steep cliff into the roaring Pacific below?

Okay, that was a really bad analogy, but that's me. I'm still without a computer. Still only able to use DH's computer in the evening when he's not working, and after a week on vacation have so many emails to wade through, I don't know where to start. *Sigh* Hence why this post is so late today. (Big apologies by the way. Contrary to what Joan said, I'm not still surfing in Maui - that was last week - this week I'm back to my everyday ho-hum, waiting for the computer nerds to fix the problem they created with my computer and ship it back to me. Not that I'm bitter about it or anything.)

There are some advantages to being without a computer. I'm actually making progress on the WIP, albeit handwriting my scenes - which is something I've never done before. I do have to say, it's sort of invigorating. Different. Kind of fun (but I still miss my computer). I'm not wasting time researching on the net while writing, neither am I jumping over to blogs or email when I should be writing. However, on the flip side, I feel totally out of the loop. I don't know what's happening with anyone. Certain people who shall remain nameless aren't emailing me because they know I'm not around to respond (not that I want to make them feel guilty or anything).

Here's what I know so far thanks to perusing blogs this evening:

Joan finaled in the Daphne. (Way to go, Joan!!)
Lin sold another book to Sahmain. (Congrats, Lin!!)
Karin Tabke sold two more books to Pocket. (Awesome news, Karin!!)
Lexi Connor finaled in the Put Your Best Hook Forward Contest. (You go, girl! You're on a roll!)

So I'm using this blog as an excuse to ask for help. Take pity on me and gimme the 411. What's happening with everyone?

Two books. :-D Both Tom and Stanton have a home now.

I have no news because I've been having computer problems myself, plus I've been buried in edits on TAC.

Waiting to see what else everyone else knows . . .

Glad you're back!

Congrats on the sales, Lin! And congrats to Joan, Karin, and Lexi, too.

No news here, at least not on the writing front. I'm buried on edits, too--some pretty painful ones *g*--and I've been promised another set this week from a different editor. I've had a lot of rejections lately, and I have a couple submissions floating around out there, so I'm crossing my fingers that I get some good news soon.

Wow - TWO more books! WTG, Lin! I didn't know that either!

Okay, so we're in edits all around--I'm working on Safe after hammering out revision ideas with Nahvae.

It occurs to me that someone could make a killing by starting an editing support group and providing therapy to tortured writers through the grueling process.

No -- it won't be me. I'm way to Eeyorish for that job.

I've got a ton of stuff going on, but I won't clog up this blog with it--personal and professional (or psuedo-professional since I'm unpubbed). I'm going to try and get my personal blog updated today.

Welcome back, E.

Woohoo, Lin!!! Fabulous news!!! Two sales. You are on a roll.

Glad to hear your new editor is working out. Can't wait to hear more about the changes to HOTM.

No edits for me, J. I WISH I were editing. I prefer that over writing first drafts. Ay ya ya...

Thanks for the welcome back. I've been missing you all!

Sorry about being buried under edits (and the R's), Elisa. But fingers crossed for you on all your submissions!
