The World Post Fireworks

I haven’t been the greatest blogger of late and it is mainly because I’ve developed a new and bizarre (and hopefully temporary) disorder called ocular migraines. If you’ve had these, you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, it is like there are little splotches of light in my field of vision. It’s like when you watch fireworks and then look away and you still see little squigglies, except that it’s pretty much all of the time. It’s somewhat entertaining to have little squigglies to look at but also pretty annoying and leads to headaches and less time on my computer. V. sad. I plan on this dissapating any moment now.

In other news, there have been big fireworks here, but I haven’t been properly healthy to fully celebrate and share them — I signed with a super awesome literary agent. Woo hoo! I am excited and thrilled and think that this agent is the most perfect and wonderful agent quite possibly in the universe. As soon as I am ship-shape there will be cake and streamers etc. In the meantime, going to go try some herbal tea to cook out the squigglies.

I hope I am not having a Woody Allen incident and going blind from stress.

More later.

  1. I haven’t been the best blogger as of late either, mainly in terms of leaving comments. It’s important to leave comments. Anyway, I’m thinking of you and hoping that those ocular migraines disappear soon. I’m thrilled about your signing on with a literary agent. Hurrah for external validation!
