Human Nature: Busyness

Ah, it strikes all of us from time to time, eh? Too much busyness...

My busyness is partially caused by my closing in on the final chapters of my next novel--which is loosely based on my experiences with Greenpeace (thanks for asking). But also because I'm hanging out my shingle as an editor at www.patlichen.com, specializing in editing novels for authors who intend to self-publish, or to send their best effort to agents or publishers. 

So this seems like a good time for a little hiatus from blogging, while my focus is elsewhere for a while. I'll keep visiting those of you who blog, and will pop up here again one of these lovely days.

Thanks for visiting!

Pat

  5. The anonymous posts are wackily wonderful and almost poetic in their randomness.

    Good luck with the book. I can hardly wait. I will pay you real money for several copies!

  7. If you see this, know I've missed your lovely posts while I've been away (also hunkering down on a novel). Have just finished mine but haven't mailed yet. (Fear of rejection). May you love your writing work throughout the process, and please do include me in your list of people to notify when you return to blogging. I was addicted to your Monday quotes!
