A Long Letter

Dear Readers:

I must apologize for failing to publish a new blog post this weekend. Not for lack of trying, mind you. I blogged on Friday night. I had it all ready to go because we had 5th Edition D&D all day Saturday, and then my sister was in town Sunday, so I couldn’t procrastinate. I got it done EARLY.

And then I thought about it overnight and I didn’t publish. I love my writerly friends and my tiny group of readers, and I don’t want to piss you off by writing about a pet peeve that I noticed in three books. If I see it again, I might publish. Until then, I’ll keep my pet peeve to myself.

Now it’s Tuesday, and I don’t have time to write a top ten. Do you know how long it takes me to write a top ten list? If I don’t have a start by Monday night, I’d better plan four hours on Tuesday. Yes, those ten cat memes took me four hours. I don’t know how Amy Lane and Ryan Field blog nearly every day. I struggle to blog twice a week.


I have one hour tonight, so this is what you get, my friends. I don’t have time to write a pithy top ten, so you get a long letter of mad rambling instead.

I’m catching up after my sister’s visit. We got home at 5:30 this evening and I took a nap before my workout. Maybe the fact that I needed a nap means I shouldn’t have worked out. I am a creature of habit. I never said they were good habits.


I have a new outline written for 50k in 30 days in April. I plan to start this weekend, to try to finish 70k by the end of April. It’s urban fantasy. It’s fresh and fun, and I hope it will give me the push I need to finish BATR once and for all. (Yes, I’m still working on the rewrites.)

I may not have time to do Top Tens again until May, but I will try. I will continue to blog on Saturdays and Tuesdays, even if we’re gaming. Even if I have to post a cute “I’m writing” cat meme and tell you to check back next week.

Thanks for your patience.

Sincerely yours,

Edie Montreux
