Irony is fun. I haven’t updated my blog in a while, but I’ll be speaking with the Arts Council Haliburton Highlands on the topic of authors and social media next Saturday. My relationship with social media is, well, complicated, to use the Facebook term.

On the plus side, life is becoming less chaotic. The past few months have included times of mourning and times of celebration for my family. Close friends have gone through loss and illness. There has been chaos on the home front, with the Basement Renovation that Would Not End. Writing slowed to a halt, and it was all I could do to juggle parenting and teaching commitments.

Some months are just like that. Sometimes all you can do is duck and cover.

And then things get better.
