It's been a while since i've been here

So, y'all know I can be a bit- flighty, some might even say I am flakey. I tend to be pulled into a lot of different directions all at one time. I promise, It annoys the hell out of me too. But like one of my favorite authors MJD, *shrugs* I'm queen of my shit and I like. MJD didn't say that exactly, I did. I'm copyrighting it right now to, gonna put it on a t-shirt and a button and a hoodie and some pens.
Having said that, I want to thank you all for sticking around even when I wasn't doing anything worth sticking around for.

AND ESPECIALLY during the times when ALL I was doing was being "Drea you are completely out of control" (to quote my friend LaTrice).

I started off the years with grand plans of plans to do stuff-- and you know what they say about plans ( insert your favorite saying about plans and ish, I for one am not about to recite them and thus throw them all in my own face.)

Anyway what was I saying? Oh life gets in the way, blidder blidder blah. Yup, that about sums it up. Some deaths, some births, some "where the holy fk did this bill come from", some "are you fking kidding me with this right now", and some serious "AHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAWWWWLLLLL" s have helped me limp my way well into the last quarter of 2011.

Looking at it I've learned a lot this year, been through a lot this year, and managed to accomplish a lot and not a lot, all at the same damn time.
I wasn't even sure I'd get one book out this year and some how (surely by the grace of God) I managed to get four new titles (three with partners and one on my own) on to the market.enemies, cuss at least 30 people out be sick 3/4 of the year.
ON the upside I made some good new friends, kept some great old friends, and found a bit more focus(energy, drive, passion) for what it is I do.

So yeah there it is-- 2011 in recap.
I am not gonna make any predictions for the end of the year and for 2012 ( nope not me i learned my lesson, I can see clearly now if I predict my year from here, I will do a whole lot of dicking off and thinking about get on with it and very little GETTIN' ON WITH IT)

Having said all that the newest all by myself book can be found here:

OH yes, I know what you mean about friends sticking around even when we don't have anything worth sticking around for. Yep, plans go astray and life gets in the way of what we want to do, but as you know--fabulous people get it done anyway. Loved the post. :)
