I'm alright

My last blog post may have come across as a little down. Okay, it was a little down. But that's what blogs are for, to foist our thoughts, emotions, challenges on others, right? ;) I appreciate the kind thoughts and comments, and I want to let you know that I'm alright. I bounce back pretty quickly, but I didn't get around to blogging that I had bounced back.

So, as proof that I'm alright:

*I am oh-so-close to finishing my massive rewrite of the 2009 NaNo train wreck. *holding thumb and pointer finger 1/4 in. apart* I'm serious. So close. And I am really stoked about the result. (In a total self-serving aside: let me know if any of you are interested in reading a MG, slightly quirky fantasy involving twists on villains and heroes, let me know.)

*My check book is balanced, I'm working on saving for retirement, and I've even used a few coupons in the last week.

* My email inbox has been cleaned out to under 1000 emails.

* I have actually watched TV a couple times.

* I signed up for a marathon, so I'm back on the racing wagon. (Always a good thing.)

* My basement is still a disaster, but I'm much closer to actually organizing it. (That's progress!)

* I'm back to blogging with parentheses. :)

How about you? Who here is doing alright?

**Bonus points for those who can guess the movie and why I have this picture up today.

Glad you are bouncing back. I would love to read your novel when it's ready! (I have no idea on the bonus question.)

Is that Caddyshack? Either way, good luck with all those projects. I'm just days from submitting my second book, so I'm feeling pretty happy right now.

Also - I love how you describe your novel as the nano trainwreck. Awesome.
And really, it can only go up from there, right?
