I am hereby announcing - as much for myself as for anyone else - that I will be absent from comments and blog-chat during the day. I'd better be, anyway. I've been on a bit of a break between deadlines, as I waited for editorial feedback. Now I've got it, along with a series of deadlines between now and mid-July. Deadlines that I have no idea how I'm going to meet, though I know somehow I will.
For the next six weeks, I'm going to try to post in the morning, then forget my blog and everyone else's for the rest of the day. Please know that I will still be avidly reading comments. My lack of response should not be interpreted as lack of interest, merely lack of time.
Here's hoping that putting it in writing helps me stick to it.
