Weebles Wobble ...

... but they don't fall down.

Thanks, Everyone. It's nice to have so many online shrinks to lend me some encouraging words when I have a mini-freakout (and it's free. How can you beat that?!)

I'm happy to announce that I'm feeling much better now. I think I was dealing with a little bit of post-travel fatigue. I re-read my post and realized how complainy (it's a Tracy word) I sounded.  Believe it or not, I wasn't stressed because I felt like I HAD to do all those things and couldn't ... I was feeling stressed because I WANT to do all those things and can't fit them in. Apparently, it has taken me this long to realize I'm not superhuman after all. Dammit!

I'm rather amused at myself. Seems I can handle agent rejection in stride, but I lose my cool when time refuses to bend itself to my will. Go figure.

If any of my buddies are looking for a fun contest to join in on -- admit it, some of you are totally addicted to blog contests and challenges -- Kay is having one over at her blog. It's a short romance scene, but it can be funny or zaney, etc -- which is why I think if the guys that follow my blog were to give it a go, it would be freaking awesome!

I know I've mentioned it before, but if any of you are looking for a great YA series to get into I highly recommend "Vampire Academy", by Richelle Mead.  I just read the 5th book while on my trip, and I can't find enough words to describe how much I love this series. Despite what the title suggests, the main character is NOT a vampire. Richelle has also managed to create a character I whole-heartedly swoon over.  I *heart* Dimitri Belikov!!!!! (Yes, I love him five exclamation points worth. It's that serious.)

A short romance scene, huh? Hmmm.

Glad you're feeling better. Stress sucks. Always has. Always will.

Romance scene, huh? Boy, I don't know ... ;)

Terry - I think you could totally pull off a romantic scene if you wanted to. You're softer on the inside than you let on! You could always try a scene through the guy's eyes ... what makes guys get all mushy inside? But make it funny or sarcastic or whatever.

Terry Towery said...

You know, I actually wrote a romantic scene from a guy's POV in my political WIP that I posted on my blog several weeks ago. I suppose I could submit it ...

Oh, I'm falling in love with Adrian, but I know Dimitri will come through in the end. ;)

Thank God (or the publishers at least) that we only have to wait until December 14th for book 6th. :D

Great to hear you're back full force--everyone goes through a stressful time, especially during important life changes. And thanks for the Richelle Mead suggestion--I keep hearing about the book, I should definitely check it out.

I'm so sorry I've been MIA from your blog, Tracy! I want to catch up though and hear/read about your trip.

Mary McDonald said...

If you can figure out a way to bend time to your will, can you share the secret with me? ;-) I need to do that or figure out a way to clone myself and make the clone go off and do all the boring work like dishes and scrubbing toilets.

Glad you're feeling better. :-)

Hey girl. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Seems like we've been occupying the same sphere. LOL. Glad you're feeling a little better.

Venting is part of what these blogs are useful for.

Not yet, but eventually I may have to give one of these writing blogfest a try. Lately I've been obsessed with my music lists and music. Guess it's my form of venting in a way.

So glad you commented on my blog Tracy. I had lost sight of yours somehow but now I'm following you on Twitter so I can keep up better faster lol! And sometimes we just have to rant about this time thing. I don't know what the answer is. It's a constant struggle to keep up with everything.
