Well, I may not be the Messiah, but I have been a naughty blogger. I've not been posting or commenting on other blogs for purely selfish reasons.
I've been reading and writing. Honestly, I have.
I've almost completed 20% of my YA novel and I finished reading the Barclay novel. I've moved immediately onto the fourth Dexter novel which I hope to complete this week, and then I'll have two left to do for HorrorScope - hopefully by the end of this month.
Then I've been lucky enough to be asked to read and review for another independently published author - cool.
I've also got a first chapter to read for another writer - it's hard to be this popular...
I've got tax stuff to sort out, cricket season looming large, the EPL starting up again, the Ashes and a warm fuzzy feeling about the YA thing I'm currently working on which needs a title. I'm playing around with a few but nothing has struck home yet. Maybe Jason had the right idea in calling his secret project Fred for the sake of having something to call it other than 'The Secret Project'! Any and all witty suggestions are welcome.
As for being naughty: I lurk in the background and read the new posts in the 80 or so blogs I follow and then get back to work (Google Reader is wonderful for keeping me organised). Very occasionally, I comment. I should do more, but then if it's a toss up between writing, reading, spending time doing stuff I enjoy off the computer, spending time with family or blogging - blogging loses - I'm becoming okay with that.
