Tuesday, and it’s random again.

| July 13, 2010

I think I have an Internet connection for a little while. Yay! Mind you, I also have lightning and big wind and rain, so this is going to be fast, assuming the connection lasts long enough to hit “Publish.” Writing, writing, writing. My mind is no good for anything else. When I’m buried this deep [...]

What I Did This Weekend

| July 12, 2010

I wrote. And I wrote. And then I wrote some more. I may be culling and adding and editing later, but I’ve finally reached that blissful moment in a panicked writer’s life when the panic is too much trouble.  :-)  Working is both more enjoyable and easier if I’m not trying to swallow my own [...]

Saturday and a Kitty Skirmish

| July 10, 2010

I wrote until late last night. I gave myself a treat and wrote a scene that was dying to get out, and then went back to the scene I had been working on. (Sometimes, getting some  unexpected stuff for later in the book leads to knowing when the unexpected should start to appear.) I never [...]

Didn’t Friday arrive in a hurry?

| July 9, 2010

Who knew it was on the way? I’m a little annoyed with myself because the word count isn’t increasing as if I’m on fire, but culling and replacing is part of every writing job. What are you doing this weekend? I’m going to a concert I’m not really hot to see. The beloved has a [...]

Talking Creativity

| July 8, 2010

My CP, Karen Whiddon, and I were talking (emailing) “Creativity” yesterday. Often, people think romance writers loaf about, spilling words onto lavender paper between bites of bonbon and sips of pink champagne. Champagne tastes too dry for me, and thankfully, I can resist bonbons. I don’t believe in waiting for “the muse.” I don’t have [...]

My brain is sore…

| July 7, 2010

Do you Sudoku? (How goofy is that question? Didn’t stop me from posing it in those words.) I’ve never done Sudoku puzzles. Word puzzles–they’re called jumbles in the paper–unfold in front of my eyes. The letters just fall into place. I rarely have to do more than glance before I see the solution. Sudoku? Not [...]

Tuesday Work

| July 6, 2010

Catching up on tasks long left undone! Important stuff first–reminding Kitty I live here. Work tasks. (I’m on strike from being the only one who notices we could write a book in the dust, or the laundry has turned into some terrifying 50s horror movie monster blob. And I’m not letting myself think about the [...]

Monday is so Random

| July 5, 2010

I love random post days. I feel no pressure to be coherent. I’ve randomly included a beach photo my friend Elayne took because it’s so beautiful, but has nothing to do with the rest of this post. First order of randomness–the proposal is on its way! Yay! And I know where to go next with Chapter [...]

Happy 4th of July!

| July 3, 2010

A bit early. I’m out editing in the world of wifi, and finally, today, this proposal goes into the world. (Talk about belated–but I want it to be good. It’s worth the extra work!) However, since I plan to be asleep for the next three days, I wanted to send a Happy 4th! I try [...]
