Work in Progress... Um, Er, Wednesday?

So, it's been a while since we've done that WIP Wednesday thing together, but I have good reason for my online absence. As I've mentioned before, besides my writing related works in progress, I've also been working on a very personal non-writing side project.


The only problem is that as time went on this side project began to consume more and more of my time and energy - until it wasn't so much on the side, but rather more front and center.

Kind of like this:




And as of December 3rd, 2009 at 1:59PM - that side project has become fully integrated into my life in the form of a baby girl: Zoe Ann Quinn.

Coming home from the hospital.

Posing for pictures with big brother Jamie.

Aaaahhh. Sleeping.

And discovering new uses for her hands.


So, that's what I've been up to, and as I am still working on remembering what day it is (and sometimes even what time of day it is - those sleepless nights are rough) my posts will be infrequent (or non-existent) until after the New Year. In the meantime, I hope all of you out there are getting a lot accomplished on your own works in progress and that you have an awesome holiday season and a Happy New Year!!!

  2. She is soooo cute. I just love her hair! I can now definitely relate to "side projects" taking up most of your time. :)

  5. Well she is just a DOLL and I've missed you in the blogosphere. Thing is, I haven't been around much either. Pretty much gone dark for now. What a wonderful project! Good luck with the first few months. They are special, but so hard! I'm keeping you in my thoughts. :)
