Also, people are not very good about returning my calls right now.

One of you said she'd like to hear my thoughts on balance. Heh. I said that if I ever figured it out, I would let her know. I do think it's important for me to balance things like work and play, alone time and togetherness, agreement and argument, revision and new drafts, adult and YA, novels and short stories, hope and realism. I am doing it by guess and by gosh, though, and if any of you have magic words for me, I'm really up for them.
"Go eat something" doesn't count in the magic words category: I'm already going to do that.
