Long Time, No Blog

August 21st, 2008 by Melina

Hello everybody!  Miss me?

So in the words of Mama Moose, “I’m suck.”  Here I promised you all a report on RWA Nationals, and I have completely failed to deliver.  What can I say?  I’m really and truly sorry.

Brace yourselves.  I’m about to make a lot of excuses.

You see, things have been a bit rough lately.  Remember that problem with my eyes? It’s not over.  I had an allergic reaction to some of the eye drops I was using.  I thought I was better.  I spent a day having fun with Twitter, commenting on forums, etc.  But then things got worse and I had to spend a morning in the emergency room.  I’m doing better, thanks, but I’m definitely not completely healed.  I’m still in a Benadryl haze and my eyes aren’t 100% open yet.  Plus, I’m still wearing glasses that are over two years old. Someday, when this allergic episode is just a funny story, I’ll go back to the eye doctor and beg for contacts.  

In other words, I’m still “blinder than a bat with cataracts.”  

How was that?  Did I make myself sound pathetic enough for you to forgive me?  

As for Sweet Talk, the winner was Tara (and yes, I sent her the book ages ago, I’m not that horrible).  I didn’t publish any of the comments due to a spam problem.  I have more books to give away.  I couldn’t carry them back to NY with me so they’re still at my mom’s.  When I go home again in December, I’ll have another contest.

Again, I’m sorry, especially to those of you who have sent or posted nice comments.  I’ll get back to you and/or comment on your blog soon now that I’m doing somewhat better.  

And I have a bunch of ideas for new posts.  Tomorrow, I’ll be posting a tribute to Will Write For Wine.

See you soon!  (Oh stop.  I really will, I swear. . .)
