Quicksand

Sheesh. Has it been that many weeks since I last posted? I can't believe that much time has gone by. No, scratch that. I can believe it. So where have I been? Let's see...

Once the new year rolled around and I wrapped up my big movie site project, I took a few days to rest and get ready to hit the keys again in crafting fiction. Then I got sick. A bout of sore throat-stuffy nose-raging headache extended my stay in bed. Once I got past that, the real humdinger hit me. For months I have been dealing with a growing pain in my right shoulder. In January that pain decided to become a full on damaged rotator cuff. Suddenly I couldn't move my arm much without it hurting really bad. This required a round of doctor visits, x-rays, shots and physical therapy that I am still dealing with. Through all this, I felt little or no desire to sit at the computer. As the days went by it was easier and easier to let this blog, my writing and other things just slide. Turning 41 didn't help my mindset much, but I am slowly trying to pull myself out of the funk and get back into my earlier groove.

One thing that helped was receiving some contracts to sign as well as some contributor copies. That really made me want to get back to my stories. So, hopefully, I can maintain some degree of regularity with this blog and my other endeavors. To that end, I may do some redesigning. I may not.

So what did I miss?

Enough bare male flesh to sear your eyes right out of your skull. That, my friend, is what you missed at my blog ; )

Welcome back to the fold young'un... I can say that because I'm a few months older than you. :D

Oh dear, did I just admit that online.

Josh Reynolds said...

Yes. Yes you did, ma'am.

While you were gone I fought Master Blaster and took over Barter Town, thus beginning the rebirth of civilization.

It was a hectic week, I tell you what.

Sheesh, 41! Wait 'til you see how entertaining the Dr. visits can be on the downhill slide to 50...

Nice to see that the resurrection has occured. Welcome back!

Joshua forgot to mention the total decline of western civilization, the plague of locusts, and the rebirth of disco.

And then the asteriod hit and we started over. Welcome back.

He's back! With a bionic arm!

Well, okay, hopefully just a healed-up shoulder. At least you were able to sign those contracts. :)

We've missed you!
