As much as I promote unplugging from technology, I might have unplugged a bit too much. I realized this morning it’s been almost a month since I’ve updated this blog.
Even though I encourage unplugging for imagination and play, I realize the importance to stay plugged in for education, work, and even social networking (to an extent). But I promise I’ve been unplugged for a good reason — I’ve been doing a lot of reading (especially Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett … if you haven’t read any Discworld books, I recommend them, by the way).
On the down side, I haven’t done much writing in my weeks away from the keyboard. And I have no excuse for that, since my sister gave me two great journals for my birthday. Technology isn’t necessary to write, after all. (Although it makes the editing and revising process much, much easier.)
To make amends for my absence, here’s a joke:
Where should a novelist never live?
Do you know the answer? It’s good.
In a one-story house.
And since I currently live in a one-story home, I’m going to blame my lack of recent writing on the house.
