Is there anyone alive out there?…

Well, they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. It’s moments like these that I’m hoping that’s true. I’m not going to waste my breath making excuses, instead I’ll do a little begging for forgiveness, and quite a bit of applauding to those of you that might still have my homely little blog on your radar. I’ll also tell you that this past few months has been a whirlwind of excitement, confusion, frustration, fear, and jubilation! Basically, a manic depressive, bi-polar period in my life. Because we all live in an instant gratification kind of world and have better things to do than listen to me ramble on, here’s the cliff-notes version: I’m still writing monthly for a local magazine, as well as working on my own personal projects in hopes of presenting enough material at a few conferences I’m attending in the upcoming months to actually pique the interest of a publisher, but also spent a few weeks hiding in my apartment after discovering that the gentleman I was dating had a wife, a second girlfriend, and a soft spot for face to face encounters, with shotguns; oh and did I mention that the local paper sought me out for an interview about my passion for writing and my goals of fame & fortune?!!??!?

The full stories are much more exciting, and detailed – but, we’ll save those for another day. Hopefully one where you’ll find them all nicely bound together in a handy little book by yours truly. Alas, I’ve checked in, let you all know that yes – I am still alive & kicking, and I promise that I will be better at keeping up this little chronicle of my life. A genuine thank you, to those of you that haven’t completely lost hope in me, and we’ll be speaking again soon…
