I'm So Happy To Be Back!


Okay, so my break lasted a little longer than I planned, but I'm back now for a while. And I couldn't be happier!

Before I left on break, we were discussing backstory. Speaking of backstory...I could give you a rundown of all the reasons I was gone so long, but I won't bore you with the details. Let's just say that a lot has been going on. None of it terribly exciting. None of it terribly terrible. Just ordinary, everyday stuff.

I'll return to the topic of backstory in my next couple of posts, but today, I want to hear what all I've missed around here? Come one...tell me! Who's got awesome news to share?

I have no awesome news although I'm making progress on an "outline" for a novel. This is big for me, so I'm happy.

Welcome back!

Got news in the works - but mine is more along the lines of 7 weeks to go and my baby boy is going to make his appearance (of course if he wants to bump that timeframe up a bit, I won't argue too hard!)

WELCOME BACK! :)

Carolyn V said...

Yay! It's so great to have you back Susan!

I wish I had awesome news. I'm starting the querying process and honestly...I'm a little nervous about it.

Welcome back, Susan! It's great to see you and your marvelous shoes :D I hope every thing is well and that you enjoyed your break.

I'm so glad you are back. Those shoes are so cute and cheerful. I love them.
My family has been busy lately. My daughter is expecting her first baby, a girl. My son and daughter-in-law are adopting a new son. And this same son is bringing out a new card game. So we are happy, busy, and thankful.

The good news is you're back! Other than that, I don't have any awesome news. But that's okay as long as I don't get bad news. You know what I mean? ;)

YEAY!! You're back!! YEAY!! Glad you had a good long break, no matter what you did! Isn't it weird how on blog breaks life slides in to fill the gaps and you don't even realize how much normal every day stuff fill up your time? Rambling. Whatever. Can't wait to get more back story stuff!

Backstory is a tricky thing for authors. We want to include so much for our characters, but often times I find myself inserting too much backstory into a narrative and it can slow the plot down.

Hi Susan! Can't wait to read more on backstory! :)
