You See, the Thing About Deadlines Is . . .

. . . it makes me a very bad blogger!

So sorry, dear readers, for my sorry lack of blogging these days. I am so wrapped up in Book 5, and really have hardly had brainpower for anything else. And the manuscript of Moonblood is on its way for my final inspection in just a few days, and I don't see myself having much inspiration for any real blogging (other than the pre-planned dragon posts) for some time. So many abject apologies! The well of bloggerly inspiration is well and truly dry.

If you're interested, however, you can have a look at the Ruling Despot of Rooglewood's blog. She seems to be finding time (and inspiration) to post even when I do not. If you need a laugh, have a glance.

And please, don't believe everything she says about me.

Totally understandable - no need to apologize! I'm very excited to read more of your books, so keep up the great work! :) I can't wait for Moonblood!

By the way, thank you for sharing Minerva Louise's blog link with us! ;) Love it! What a fun exercise in creativity! I just love cats - and I think my sister's cat, Muffin Man, has a bit of "Evil One" in him, too. ;)

Thank you, Amber! And I'm glad to hear from another cat-lover. Really, I don't know why some people don't like cats! Even the Evil Ones are interesting (if a little difficult at times . . .) :)

Christa here.
Thanks for sharing Minerva's blog link. I'm going through some tough stuff and it helped to put a smile on my face. <3

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Aw, I'm glad, Christa. Sometimes, we all just need a laugh! I'll say a prayer for you. :)

Anne,

I so agree! And I just wanted to add that you inspired me to start a creative writing endeavor of my own - albeit a shorter one! ;) I just joined Twitter and created two accounts: one for me and one for my dorm kitty. My dorm kitty's not real, of course, but if he had a voice, well... ;) You can find him here:

I hope you don't think me too much of a copycat (excuse the pun!). I just thought the idea of practicing creativity and sharing smiles was a really nice one. :)

I think it's adorable! :) It's great for a writer to practice in a more casual context getting into someone else's head. And really, what is more unique and interesting than a kitty's head (be he invented or real?) :) I'll be sure to look up Dorm Kitty's world!

My whole family has been reading Minerva Louis's blog, and has made us all have a great laugh! Thank you!

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Clara, you should tell your family that they are welcome to write comments on Minerva's blog, and she will most likely respond. She's a very social cat. :)

I'll be sure to tell them!...although, I have caught my dog reading Minerva's blog a couple of times. I think he even commented once...I certainly hope he and Minerva aren't up to some mischief!

I make no promises about the purity of Minerva's influence! She can be quite naughty, and is more than happy to lead others into naughtiness . . . so keep an eye on your dog! :)
