So, as you can see (by the rampant use of Stolen Material used as an excuse for a "post"), I have not been very dilligent about writing on this blog. But this will change! [she said, shaking her fist in the air and pounding her other fist on the table, for emphasis].
Things have been busy, and since I am a hopeless procrastinator, I sabotage myself by not letting myself do "fun" things (write on my blog, write on my stories, edit my novels) until I have done the "work" (the day job, paid writing assignments, laundry). So I end up not doing either, then feeling just awful about it as I watch another TiVOed episode of The Daily Show.
However, as you can see from the nifty new icon above, I'm committing to Blogging for Blood Cancer, where I will be blogging daily from August 11-18 to raise awareness for blood cancers and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's efforts to erradicate them.
As Joey pointed out to Phoebe, this will not be a selfless act. Most of my posts will probably, at some point in time, as you to make a donation to the LLS through my Team In Training fundraising page, for the triathlon I'm doing in October.
