Excerpt Monday No Show

Excerpt Monday Logo

This is the first Excerpt Monday I’ve missed since I started participating and I do feel awful. The lovely coordinators even sent a last call to remind me, but I had to make a big girl choice. I was Fast Drafting as well as researching a post for Unusual Historicals. Each UH post is like a mini history paper for me. It takes some effort to put them together and this month I’m trying to do a cross-cultural topic about paper and the printing press a little bit of justice —  it’s not easy for a math and science gal!

Not to mention I just discovered Sherry Thomas on Friday and there are two more books burning a hole through my TBR pile. They’re right over there. I put them on the coffee table so I wouldn’t see them on my desk and read them instead of working. But I can sense them…

I digress and perhaps am starting to make excuses. I would still like to come out and support EM so here we go:

    Hey, but we’re working on important things, right? I could have made the deadline, but I decided finishing this draft was higher priority.

    I haven’t had time to read the excerpts yet either, but hopefully I’ll have a chance after FD.
