This and That

I’m sitting here staring out the window at what looks to be an impending storm. The skies are gray and the trees are swaying from a steady breeze. Why are you describing the weather for me, you ask? Well it’s one of many ways I keep from writing. I have no idea why I have to work up to it. An hour ago I made five pages worth of notes for the current story I’m working on. You’d think it would get me in the mood, but you have no idea how strong my procrastination gene is. So once again, I’m staring outside, wondering if it’s cool enough to open the windows. Until next time, may the view from your window be sunny and bright.

The In-Laws are Leaving

I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by. It seems like yesterday that my in-laws arrived for a visit and now they’re heading back to Scotland. Where did the time go? I suppose that’s the sign of a good visit, but it doesn’t make it any less sad. Dh and I will hate to see them go. (sniffle)

New Excerpt: I’ve added an excerpt on the ‘BOOKS’ page from my upcoming Kensington, Brava release.

New Article: I’ve also written an article on contests for the Romance Junkies. To view the article go to:

New Projects…

A couple of things for those who haven’t visited my site for a while. I started work on another novella for Kensington. This one is about a professional hypnotist, which should be fun. So far I’ve written eleven pages and it’s flowing right along. (I just started it yesterday.)

The second bit of news is I’ve added frequently asked questions under my ‘ABOUT’ section. So if you have time skip on over there and let me know what you think. Also if you think of a question I haven’t answered then email me with it and if I can I’ll add it to the rest.

Have a wonderful weekend. Post at you soon. J

So Excited!

I’m so excited. I finished the first draft of my second novella for Kensington today. I’m so happy to be done at least for a few days. You have no idea. I ended up with 115 pages. I’m sure that will be trimmed and molded before I’m done, but it’s such a great feeling to say ‘the end’. I simply can’t stop smiling.

I’m having one of those days where I feel unusually restless. I don’t know why. I reached my writing quota for the day. My novella is almost finished. (Will be this week, barring any unforeseen events.) I can’t seem to shake the edginess. Time to put in a good movie and read. If that doesn’t work there’s always gin and tonic. 😀

Except for Monday…

Don’t you just love Mondays? For being one little day, it’s amazing how they can set the tone for the week. I, myself, am having a fairly terrific Monday. No, nothing in particular has happened. I didn’t receive special news or anything like that. It’s just been a smooth day. You know the kind where everything glides into place without effort. I’m grateful for those days, because they don’t come all that often. Until next time, I hope you’re Monday is marvelous. I’m off to read Wild Rain by Christine Feehan.

Dear Husband’s Birthday!

Today is my dh’s birthday and to make it extra special he has a twin! I’m sure we’ll be celebrating tonight and I know his sister will be doing the same in Edinburgh. I wish them both much happiness and dreams come true.

Jordan, who remembers being that age…sigh…where have the years gone?
