I've seriously neglected you the last sixteen days, but our daughter, son-in-law and one-year old granddaughter have been here. I've been busy.
Dear manuscript, you weren't the only thing I neglected these sixteen days. I also skipped much of my usual blog-hopping and tweeting activities. I visited only a few blogs per day and only left an occasional comment.
But to tell you the truth, I haven't had this much fun in years. Darling granddaughter won my heart with her killer grin. She has the heart of an explorer, she loves books, and she made me laugh so much my sides ache.
So, dear manuscript, I'm sorry for neglecting you. I've missed you.
Darling granddaughter (and her mommy and daddy) are leaving today. I'll miss them too.
But you and I will be together again starting tomorrow, dear manuscript. And we're going to get the job done this time around. I promise.
Your loving author,
