Working like crazy

I'm putting every spare minute into two books I'm working on. It's fun work, but I tend to lose whole months at a time when I do this.

I forget about almost everything except the essentials (like, um, kids, and meetings) and I pop my head up at the oddest times, throw out a few emails that may or may not make sense, and duck back down into my work before getting an answer.

It's efficient. I'm getting a lot of work done. But sometimes I feel like a recluse, or a ghost.
Reaching high for the stars always seems to pay off. So, back to work....
Before I go -- I've done some exciting and rewarding author visits this summer. I love connecting with audiences.
Next up is the Schuler Books birthday bash on Sept. 15. If you live near Lansing, check it out!

Hey Ruth! Just wanted to drop a note and say congrats on all of your success. I just got my copy of the CWIM, and I was so tickled to see the first page was all about you! It's so neat that you're in one of the best editions I've read. Good luck with your two projects!

Hugs, Dee. Thank you!
I hope to see you at the big SCBWI conference in NYC again!
