Bad as in 'bad'

Wonder Woman,
from http://www.crushable.com/
           I’m bad. I haven’t been able to keep up with my blog posts. And I had promised to. But the truth is that I’m not blogging not because I’ve given up on writing but because I’m writing too much. I’m freelance copy-editing for a prestigious European academic publisher. And I’ve recently started re-editing my own manuscript Lost in the Spanish Quarter, which I have thus decided to remove temporarily from this blog. Goodbye, 100 pages! And I hoping to say arrivederci to another 75. The impossible is actually happening.

Oh, and all the while I’ve been taking care of my newborn and my five-year-old. So I might be bad but also a little bit cool. Like Wonder Woman cool, at least when I don’t have spit-up on my jeans or banana in my hair.

But I can’t do it all…so blogging will have to put aside for a few months. In the meantime, please enjoy some of my older posts, also to be found as a collection at http://www.lulu.com/shop/heddi-goodrich/confessions-of-a-wannabe-writer/paperback/product-20844675.html.

So watch this spot. I’ll be back even badder, with an entirely new, kick-butt manuscript for your perusal. Cleaner, meaner and ready finally to find the perfect literary agent.
