Apologies Again

I know these entries lately have been real stinkers. I’m just not doing much beyond working and exercise. I finished my urban fantasy partial last night. YAH! Today, I’m going to try to write the dreaded synopsis. Should be a trick. *ggg* Anyone out there know what my book is about? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Sigh, me neither…yet. (wg)

I’ll probably start edits on the ST on Friday. It’s going to take me a while to get through them. With any luck, I’ll have critiques back and the manuscript ready to go in the mail by June 19th (possibly earlier).

I’m going to be attending RWA Nationals in Atlanta in July. It’s been strange because I’ve been trying to figure out what I need to do to get ready. Organizing clothes is a given, but I was thinking more along the lines of work. What work needs to be done beforehand? The two stories that I’ve been working on are the main things I needed finished, but I keep wondering if there is something else I can do. Should I try to put together another partial, so that I have two? I just don’t know.

Are any of you going to Nationals? If so, are you doing anything special to prepare?

  1. You’ve got one complete ST and another partial; I think you’re ready! *g*

  2. Don’t apologize about your posts. I’ve been there much too often lately. Mine for tomorrow isn’t anything to write home about.

  3. Charlene, You can never be too prepared. 😉

  4. Eve, I just feeling like they’re as boring as ants shifting dirt. (shaking head)

  5. I’ll be there!! Yay! I can’t wait to meet you!

    Special? To prepare? Uhmm , lose wieght? LOL Nope I’m not doing anythign special In fact I’m trying not to think about it too much since I’m so anxious about BOUNDS release coming up.

  6. That’s this month, isn’t it Sasha?

  7. Yeah, I’m going!!! Can’t wait to meet you Jordan. I’ll be hanging out with Sasha, doing nothing but being super cool….

    A couple things I want to do before I go…lose a few pounds, get a new tattoo, and have a wax…but that’s about it.

  8. I can’t go to RWA nationals. Too expensive. I can’t afford it right now. I’ve heard that it’s good to bring lots of business cards ‘coz it’s a good place to pitch your stuff like Hare Krishna at the park on a Saturday.

  9. Cool Sasha!!! I can’t wait. Congrats on the upcoming release. 🙂 I don’t even want to talk about the weight thing. Mine seems to love me. 🙁

  10. Yah! Can’t wait to meet you too, Vivi! I’ll be in the bar. *g*

  11. Silma, LOL! I just ordered some of those last night. I’m praying that the girl who helped me got the order right, but I am worried. At least I’ll have time to get more, if there’s a problem. :/ In the past, I haven’t handed too many cards out at Nationals, although I’m sure some people do.

  12. Oh I so wish I could be there. I’d love to meet some of you guys I’ve “met” on the net. Sigh. Hopefully 2007 or 08 at latest. Meanwhile, I’ll be oggling blog reports like crazy so tell all 🙂

  13. Saskia, I wish you were coming too. Next year is in Dallas and the year after I believe is in San Francisco. I will definitely take copious notes, enough to fill several blog entries. 😉
