I started off the month with good intentions...then good excuses...then absent-mindedness. Did ya miss me? I missed me!
I can only say that my brain was elsewhere with all the family events that occurred in the past month. It doesn't seem to hold as much information as it used to. My steel trap is corroding, I think.
I have since worked my way through two edits of my newest novel and found that my writing skills are in need of re-training, too. I can remember why English was not my favorite in school. It was fine when I could make up stories, but fitting it into a grammatically correct formula after the fact was dreary and painful.
The next thing you know is that they'll be clear-cutting timber out behind my house in the green belt...oh wait!
