Where is the time?

7. April 2008

I am a folder fanatic when it comes to my computer. I love dividing and sub-dividing things in a weird effort to one day become more efficient. At what, I don’t know. Filing, maybe?
One of the things I file a lot is my email.
My web-based email account (to which all my various email addys forward) has ten folders set up, filtering various message groups, replies from agents and editors, contest news, etc. one of them is simply called “personal” and is where I drop every email that is purely social in content. This is where all my beloved friends’ correspondence goes, marked with a star for IMPORTANT, so I know to look at it, take my time, and answer it.

I realised today that my most recent correspondence is from September last year. I was *sure* it was December at least, but apparently, I lost a couple of months along the track.
Just like that.

So for all of you who read this blog to find out whether I’m still alive or why I ignore you, it’s because of the folders.
And the fact that for the life of me, I don’t even remember what i did in October. or February.

Well, technically, that’s not true. I can tell you that I did some important revisions that were requested from me in October and had some great professional correspondence, and in February my current YA project found a paranormal twist to itself.
But outside of books and book-related things, there is only the great Silence.

I should talk more about my life here. I might need to look it up some day.
