I’m back…

Yep, it’s been very quiet round here – again. I can’t believe that a month has passed since I last posted, but that’s what the dates say. Gulp. I’ll blame it on going straight back to the madness of the day job the day after I got back from Dallas, and cramming beginning of semester work overloads, jet lag, bad flu-type thing, teaching a weekend workshop, more ‘flu, and a trip to Sydney for the Romance Writers of Australia conference into too few days.

I’m mulling a couple of longer posts about aspects of the genre, but simply haven’t had time to get them written down here yet.
I’m also at a stage in the PhD where I”m contemplating directions and reviewing where I’m at and what I have already.

In the meantime, there’s a great discussion over at Smart Bitches about alpha heroes, which reminded me of the romance hero archetypes I blogged about a little while ago. I’m still thinking that maybe we don’t have enough of a common language framework to adequately discuss the genre and it’s complexities, and would love to hear other’s thoughts.
