« Music not a cure for homesickness
I am so proud »
In the last few weeks there’s been quite a bit of delurkification as well as some new commenters. Ordinarily I would respond in the comments and welcome you personally but, well, I has deadline. And book for deadline is scary and complicated and not genre and I may be out of my depth and um,
But I hate to be rude and I love to see new folks here. So,
To everyone else: sorry for not responding as much even though I read all your comments,1 also for being months and months behind with email, for not having done that thing I promised I’d do for you, and for generally being as slack as, um, a very slack person.
Book comes first! Before hygiene, friends, nutrition, changing polls, health, admin and pleasure. Is just how it is.

I am a lurker–now commenting. I am thoroughly enjoying your blog. I look forward to reading your books when I finally have time in MY novel-writing process. Right now I just spend time procrastinating with your products of procrastination. Thanks for your wisdom, levity, and letting me lurk. Best of luck with your deadline.

It just dawned on me that I am in Manhattan which puts my proximity to my proposed fight too close for comfort.
I hear by rescind my challenge in order to protect myself from getting forked up.

I am so not a lurker. I love Justine and must let her know by commenting whenever possible, letting her know that I am her faithful follower to the end.

Apropos of nothing in particular, I arrived in San Francisco a few days ago and this evening passed by a restaurant in Larkin by the name of Mangosteen, but I know nothing else of it in particular and indeed mangosteens in general; the very little I do know (and I originally thought they were made up) comes from this blog.

Oh, delurkification! What a great word!
I offer my WELCOME and HELLO to current and former lurkers as well!

As a longtime lurker and infrequent commenter, gotta say, you have nothing to fret over.
You roll out the welcome mat every time you drop a quip or share your aussie angst over being a long way from home.
You are honest and forthright and noble and kind and you make us laugh and think. I should hope that’s quite enough.
And don’t wring your hands too violently over a pending deadline / non-genre book. In over your head?!? Not so.
The simple fact that you’re spooked will probably lend a bit more fire and shadow to the places and people in your story. You may be stitchin’ them together a bit differently this time, but the words and people, the thread and fabric of your story–haven’t changed.
Still mortar and bricks. The house just shaped a bit different, that be it.
Go get ‘em. We’ll all have a big chat when you’ve finished.
*retiring back to the shadows of lurkerdom…which in this case would be the kitchen for a bowl of Capt’n Crunch…*

I’m a longtime lurker, second time poster (the first was on mosquito lore).
