Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Posted on

I have next to nothing to report.  Hubby and I have taken on a puppy to foster, so most of my spare time has been spent dealing with her and our dogs, making sure everybody has had enough attention and play.  We meet with the rescue organization to get her listed today.  She’s a sweet […]

It’s been a ZOO at work today, so just popping in for a quick check-in.  I’m still slogging through the last of Act 2 (I swear to GOD, it’s a freaking tar pit), but I’m tying things together and getting closer and closer to the midpoint with every word.  Two scenes to go!  Been reading […]

Well after standing us up on Monday because he forgot it was Memorial Day, the painter finally came yesterday.  Hubs had to take off to be there for it, which worked out because then he was HOME and we spent lunch putting the house back to rights.  The sheetrock guys are coming back this afternoon […]

After last week’s epic plotting, it’s been a slow writing week.  I’m having a little trouble getting into my latest Meet Cute–the hero and shero haven’t spoken up to really clue me in to their personalities yet.  I did start the next Wishful novel last night–literally a page.  I was off on a tangent reading […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Just a quickie check-in today.  Things are hitting the hard core busy at the Evil Day Job.  My normal work pace is probably somewhere around 65% of my true efficiency capability so that when stuff like the next month happens, I still have something to draw on.  It’s kind of like the difference between the […]

Well, the crazy is officially starting at the Evil Day Job.  For the next month, we are all about the grant submission. On the writing front, I’ve not actually started drafting the next book, but I clocked nearly 9k words in plot notes over the long weekend.  Boy do I wish I could write actual […]

End of Revision Hell

Posted on

  After a brutal 2 day push this weekend and nearly 4,000 new words, I have finished with the second draft of Riven.  I am now a puddle of rather useless brain goo. Tomorrow begins the less brain intensive pass for stupid crap, redundant words, excessive use of “that” and “like” and the various other assorted […]

Okay, so I got tagged by Kendra Highley for  WIP Update.  It seemed the thing for a Monday post.  Except, of course, I hit the publish instead of schedule button.  So here it is. 1. What is the name of your current WIP? Riven 2. Ready to do a cover reveal? Already did.  Um, except […]

Well, after the disappointing end to season 2 of Hell on Wheels, I just plowed through It Had To Be You, the latest Lucky Harbor book by Jill Shalvis, which was exactly the light, fluffy, happy read I needed.  I’m listening to Flirting With Disaster by Sheryl Woods in audio while I wait for my next Audible credit […]
