Kind of a bumpy day here, with not enough sleep for anyone. Oh, to be college-aged again, when I could get by on five hours with no problem. Oh, well.
Meanwhile, I’ve taken yet another technological leap. Okay, well actually I didn’t. I have the wonderful Carly Michelle to thank for this brand new Sarah Dessen message board. There are all kinds of topics to comment on, so click over and check it out if you are so inclined. I’ll definitely be doing so, although is it completely pathetic to join your own message board? Oh, I don’t even know why I’m asking, we all know I am pathetic anyway.
I swear, between MySpace, Facebook, the website, the blog and now message boards, it’s amazing I have time to do anything else. Like say, write, which seems like such a distant concept these days I can’t even picture myself doing it. I know things will calm down eventually, and I’m in the process of hiring some afternoon help so that I CAN get back to work,and soon. I mean, I have a book coming out in six months, and there’s a lot that needs to be done. It’s looking like I MIGHT tour, as well, if we can work out the childcare issue (bringing Sasha along, leaving her here with her dad, or doing a combo of the two). Some days I feel like I could be gone from her for a night or two: others, just the thought of it makes me want to cry. Par for the course, I guess.
At any rate, it IS my plan to do as much as I can locally and especially online. I have a contest in mind for the website, and we’re looking into doing some kind of podcast, with questions taken from readers, or maybe a video or two where I read and answer questions. So it’s like I’m there, even if I’m not.
Okay, enough typing. Baby’s down, so I’m hitting the bed as well. Gotta take it when you can, right?
