After LTUE, my Twitter life has exploded. :-) I rediscovered TweetDeck and I think I'm in love. (http://www.tweetdeck.com/) I was able to keep up on notable quotes from sessions I was unable to attend and still get a lot out of the ones I did.

The first thing I did when I got back was begin to clear my work load. My day job is very demanding and I have allowed it to take over much of my free time (working for a non-profit makes me more willing to work extra hours).

I have been struggling through my first writing project. I've always had a way with words (spoken that is), so a year ago I decided to start writing a novel. How could I know then that I would be on my third revision? How could I know the sacrifice required for good fiction?
