Bad Blogger - Part 2

I think it's fair to say that I've been really bad at blogging this month. It's the 19th already and I've only done one post in July! Shocking!
But, in my defence, there is a reason for this neglect. I've been super busy! Yes, we're all busy, I hear you say, and that's where my defence breaks down! But still, it's the only one I have!
Firstly I had a long weekend away in sunny Cornwall for the hen-do of one of my lovely school friends. Not only was this a great time to catch up with lots of fab friends, get my first massage (who knew buttocks were included in a neck, shoulders and back massage!!), wear red shoes for the first time, and get to experience the oh-so charming male presence in Newquay on a Saturday night, but also I was able to steal a little time with my parents while I was down there. For you see, Cornwall is my home, and although I've been gone for four years now, I still love going back. So, all in all, a busy but wonderful few days.
Last weekend we had a trip to see my hubby's parents and sister. A whirlwind trip, but so lovely. I'm so lucky to have such great in-laws and we enjoyed a yumptious bbq (my first of the year!) and a trip to see Harry Potter at the cinema.
The main reason, though, that I have simply not found time to blog is that finally, inspiration has struck!! I've ditched my stale project (well, I say ditch, but it's more just having a break for a bit!) because, one night, a wave of creativity washed over me and a new idea was born! I don't want to say too much about it for now, but I will say that it's not a novel this time! Oooh, cryptic! It's so lovely to be writing when you're in the zone - when you're so immersed you forget to eat and suddenly realise the day has passed without you noticing, when your fingers simply can't keep up with your brain. I haven't had that feeling since I finished my second novel in March and I'm glad to have it back. I was afraid it was gone forever!
So, there's my explanation folks, for my rather long absence! I fear it might be a while again until I write, certainly until the first draft of my new project is complete. But somehow I suspect you'll all manage perfectly well without my pointless ramblings for a little while...
