We need to talk.

Last week I had a 500 word a day goal. The good news: I accomplished my goal, and then some. The Bad news: my blog has taken a back seat, and my last post had 1 comment.

ONE COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????

I feel like 47 of you have broken up with me. Okay, not really. But I want to make you feel shame. SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.

If you continue with this behavior, you leave me no choice...I'll have to start posting pictures of Ligers.

There are more where that came from.

But seriously, what do you want from me? We need to DTR, people. Do you want more money? More stability? Maturity?! You knew who I was when we first got together. I can't blog and pretend to be someone else. You have driven me to distraction. And donuts. And pizza rolls. And ultimately 5 extra pounds...maybe 10. BUT NONE OF US ARE PERFECT! I'm sorry I don't have the body that I use to have. I can't help what I have become.

(before blog)

(After blog)

So, maybe I've let myself go a little. Maybe it is a little disturbing that I can keep my entire manuscript in between my boobs, as well as that little cup. BUT YOU SAID YOU LOVED ME!

We all change.

I'm just asking you for another chance. Please. Pretty please? No? Okay, I'll wait.

Oh, that Dena!

What are you like!

Jonathon Arntson said...

A) I am afraid of rabbits.

B) Just because I don't comment doesn't mean I don't read.

C) More liger photos please.

No more Ligers!!

Sorry, Dena, the week was brutal...and I don't expect this next one to be much better...but after that, Ill be a very good, diligent reader. I promise.

It's not you. It's me.

Oh seriously, I'm still here, too. Just had a bit of a busy week "in real life" and am nervously querying my wip. I kind of feel like it's been a bit slow all around -- everyone's on last week of school schedule!

Glad you're still here! Catch you later!

DOn't worry people are here. We are just busy. At least I am. My revisions, critiques, kids, day to day stuff all has engulfed me and my blog is suffering too. Summer doesn't help but what can you do. Good for you for putting things in important priorites and acheiving your goal.
Don't worry. :)

If it helps, I could keep an entire manuscript between my boobs pre-blog! : )

Janet said...

I think summer is a busy time for everybody. I don't get many comments, either. I forget to check blogs sometimes, but when I do, I usually comment. Congratulations on reaching your goal.

Hey guys

YAAAAAAAAAY for responses! I know how all of you feel. Since starting this new book I haven't been blog surfing nearly as much...and when I do, I barely leave comments. I thought this blog post might be an attention grabber ;-)

Tina Laurel Lee said...

Yes, I am very jealous of your writing these days. I can hardly comment as a result. Right now my fingers are shaking as I type this. But I am wondering, will I see you in TPR soon? Unplugging starts at noon you time.

Dena Daw said...

Tina- I'll be there!

Good for you for hitting that goal, Dena! We were just all silently honoring you by working on our own goals :) Glad to see you're back, though.

Lola Sharp said...

It's the insane time of year.
This post cracked me up! :)


Dena Daw said...

Thanks for following me, Lola!

Kris said...

Dena -- Can't find your contact address to send you info about How I Write series -- email me krisasselin at yahoo dot com. :)

You should consider moving to Greece...maybe stay with me?...Men in this country like buxom birds who can store masses of things in their cleavage! You'd be a knockout here!!!
