I’ve neglected you, dear blog! But you must understand that it wasn’t truly my intention. Not to worry, for I will tell you why.
I completed it! My first manuscript of 75,000 agonizing words. So you see, little blog, you had to be ignored for the sake of my own sanity.
I’m afraid you may not get the attention you deserve for a little longer, as my modest little novel is complete but not finished. Rest easy, though, for I shall return.
