ALIVE BUT NOT KICKING

So I still haven't pulled myself up off the floor of the ring after this last round of sick. I just have zero energy and I don't know why. In theory, I am no longer sick although my energy slump has me wondering if something might be festering in my lungs and it just hasn't hit me yet? I don't know.

Anyway, I thought I would do a blog post to let y'all know I'm alive.

My other writing buddy sold two books to Juno that will come out in 2010. I'll post more details when I have them, but Way To Go!!! I started our little writing group 5?6? years ago when  we all met at a convention. Since then we have been diligently supporting each other and now look, two members with multibook deals. That is awesome!

Now if I could just get my writing back on track maybe I could sell a book or three as well. Urgh. Need more time.

The freelance writing gig is going okay. I had hoped for steady income, but I think they are going to pull the old 'revenue sharing' switcheroo on me where upfront payment is replaced by .0000000001% of ad revenue. Which sucks.

Tutoring is not going well. Another student was let go for chronic no shows but has not been replaced so I'm out that money. One student is brilliant but hasn't grasped the difference between being smart and actual ly knowing something. This student argues with me constantly and everything they do wrong is my fault. At least I'm getting some experience with unruly teenagers.

And that's it.

Hang in there. I slept in today which is something I haven't done in a long time. I feel so lazy when I do it that I never really enjoy it. Being sick always takes the guilt out of it for me!

Awwwww...I'm sorry you are still feeling so poorly. I hope it gets better soon. Hang in there.

And yay for your writer friends...and it is hard to keep at your own writing when you have a child I think and don't feel good. It can be hard just to blog.
