So, mid-terms are due Monday, and I've got 3 classes' worth of essay tests to grade. (Oh, the life of an English teacher! Wait. Scratch that. We don't HAVE lives; we grade papers.) Then next week brings us parent-teacher conferences, the single most loathsome thing about teaching, which will suck up two full evenings. And, the most recent proof of Brigid arrived a few days ago. While I'm happy to say that -- at half-way through the book -- I've only found ONE real error (a missing word, caused by an earlier copy-and-paste rearrangement of a sentence), I'm still smoothing things (like having the sun set an hour too early in one scene. oops!). I need to get this book ready ASAP!! So every moment I'm not grading must be spent on editing.
Folks, there's just no time for blogging right now. Really.
