Oh, did I mention I was doing BEDA?

In case you're wondering why this blog has gone from a post every week or so to posts every day, I should probably tell you that I seem to have accidentally-on-purpose signed myself up for Blog Every Day April (BEDA), which is the brainchild of the very funny Maureen Johnson.

Maureen is one of those author bloggers whose books I haven't read but whose blogs I thoroughly enjoy -- and since I've just bought a copy of 13 Little Blue Envelopes, I suppose she's about to become one of those author bloggers whose books I have read...

In any case, Maureen innocently mentioned that she was thinking of blogging every day during the month of April, and within a few hours it had turned into a Movement. Last I checked there were something like 400 bloggers signed up, and Maureen was gallantly trying to read every single one of their blogs (I have no idea how successful she's been in this endeavor, but I applaud her for trying).

There's just one problem with my BEDA subscription, which is that I am going to be away for almost the whole last week of April. On the 25th and 26th I'll be speaking at a women's conference, doing a seminar on the book of Proverbs (which is so practical and pertinent in so many ways that I am having serious trouble narrowing it down to something I can talk about in just one hour).

Then I'm driving six hours or so to Ottawa for the International Writers' Festival, where I'll be doing three school readings a

nd Q&A sessions on the 27th and 28th. After that I drive home (on the 401, so help me) and I've got three days to get ready for my book launch and party on May 2nd. So if I have anything to blog on those two days it will probably be along the lines of "OMG I AM SO TIRED I COULD DIE" or possibly "WKRFSTSFADJJJJJJD" as my forehead hits the keyboard.

Oh, and at some point in all of this I am expecting another round of edits on my second faery book. Excuse me while I sit in the corner and gibber a bit, won't you?


Right, I'm okay now. Anyway, the upshot of all that is that I highly doubt I will be able to Blog Every Day April, but I am certainly determined to Blog Every Day Until I No Longer Have Internet Access in April, and to try and carry on blogging on a more regular basis in the months to come. So, if you have any questions or topics you'd like to see me blog about between now and April 25th, now is the time to tell me so! I am open to suggestions.
