So, are you ready for my excuses? First NaNo fried my brain. While it is nice to know I can, if need be, write a novel in a month. Who would want to? Not me! Second, I got another rejection. While this goes with the territory, this particular publisher waited their full four months to tell me "no". I like to think they were really considering publishing my manuscript and that is why it came down to the wire, but I will never actually know. They never said. (They seldom do.) But, my choice of traditional publishers still has it after 8 months and it has been passed up the food chain, so I remain hopeful. Third, the holidays are upon us, and well...you know how those are. And finally, I am getting a divorce after 38 years of marriage. A lot is required to separate two lives after all that time.
So, please be patient with me. As soon as the Dervishes in my head stop whirling, I will write more Tom. I will edit my NaNo Novel, Dare to Dream, I will sub to more publishers and agents. I Will!
