« The writing-not-easy thing, part the millionth
The next novel »
That I haven’t answered emails in ages and ages or done many many other things I’m supposed to do. Like respond to comments here. But you may have noticed from some of my posts of late that I has book.
I has unfinished book.
Which must be finished before not too long.
Thus I am only capable of two things:
All else—communicating with other peoples, washing clothes and dishes and floors and self etc, paying bills, following the Tour de France, functioning like normal human being—all is on hiatus till book be done.
That is all.

Keep on trucking, Madame Authoress! I’m sure whoever’s e-mailing you will be far more ecstatic to get a new book from you than they would be to get a response more quickly instead.

I don’t expect responses from my email(s) to you. Mostly they’re just telling you how great your books are, or perhaps something neat I saw that was related to said books.
You blogs are enough to let me know you’re still around, which eases the mind. So please don’t devote any worry to missing an email answer.
Besides, when you haz DOZENS of books out, and BAZILLIONS of fans, you won’t possibly be able to answer all the mail.

Brent: I have no idea how the popular writers cope. Absolutely no idea.
I don’t get that much fan mail. This post was really so my friends and family won’t be mad at me for not answering . . .

Crap days are a problem, but I’m sure you’ll be fine. That you’re plugging away shows you’re still dancing.

BOOK! Yay for finishing book, which will (must) happen soon! Write like the wind, noble Larbalestier.

Writing the book is the better choice.

Those two bullet points aren’t in order of action, are they? Hmm, that must be the difference between published authors and those of us struggling in the weeds.

seems perfectly reasonable to me.

“I don’t get that much fan mail.”
Heh. Okies everyone, send Justine a short email describing your favorite character or scene from her books and how dull and pointless your life would be without it. =)
