A little bit off-balance

I generally pride myself on balancing work responsibilities with my private life (including this blog), but I’ve been doing more freelancing lately, and the job I’m working on right now has completely overwhelmed me. (Lesson learned: No more accepting two-week deadlines!)

So I haven’t given up blogging; I’m just completely lacking in free time at the moment. But once I get this manuscript turned in, there’s lots I want to write about: The Tiger’s Wife, Téa Obreht’s eerie, beautifully mythic debut novel; the perverse but hilarious TV show Archer; and the new stage adaptation of Frankenstein directed by Danny Boyle (Sean and I are going to see it onscreen this weekend). Plus, I really need to get to a concert hall sometime soon. I feel musically deprived.

So watch this space! I’m not a slacker, I swear.
