Thanks to my new followers and to those of you who blogged about or otherwise promoted my giveaway, and especially for all the February condolences and good whishes. I mean wishes. See what I mean about brain fog? I can't even write in February. Bleh. My book is going so slow. Ly. Slowly.
But I'm always happy to give away a free book. It makes my February less ugly. I'm throwing names in a dish right now (too lazy to find a hat)...pulling one...and the winner of the February Brain-Fog-Book-Blog-Givaway... is...
Congratulations! Yay! Hooray! Huzzah! I'm so excited to send you a book! Email your address to me and I'll send you Bree's lovely blue (ish) Lost Saint.
Ok. Seven days into February. It goes on, Judah. Here's an update:
1 surgery (son)
1 possible stress fracture or stress reaction (daughter)
1 set of x-rays to find out
1 MRI to find out for sure
1 crappy insurance policy that pays for nothing (I really ought to sell a book)
7 days of crappy weather
way too much flu
1 kid moving out. (It's ok. I'm not clingy. I believe in independence. He's 21. He can move out if he wants. Waaaah.)
2 finished books (read, not written--I wish)
12 erased stop-settings when I went to play the organ for church. After having not practiced. At all. I hope somebody got a laugh, at least, from the way I slaughtered the postlude.
1 gag-response to pre-game hype.
1 very crappy attitude
And one day of Grace, like an undeserved gift. Thank you! (Except for the football. I hate football.)
At least February is a short month. Twenty-one days to go. Julie, I'm moving in with you.
Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving [problems] or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. [Some people] would call this escapism, but they would be be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful branch of writing there is.
