Typed All Day

I typed my additions in all day and I’m STILL not done. I have a hundred and twenty something more pages to go. UGH!!! The book has gone from 401 pages to 433. That number will rise tomorrow. I’m determined to get through this last section and send it off to N.Y. Wish me luck. I’m going in. *ggg*

Have you Seen this?

The Ghost Hunters are running a contest to find a new member of the team. Do you all know how bad I’d LOVE to do this??? I actually screamed when I saw it announced on the 6th. Getting to investigate hauntings with Jason and Grant would be beyond cool. I don’t care about being on television. I’d just want to go and hunt ghosts. Sadly, I think the chances of them picking a female paranormal author over thirty-five are slim to none, seeing as they both have writing aspirations. 🙁 Another dream bites the dust…

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

My mom has always been my best buddy, my biggest cheerleader, my monster movie watching partner, my Dear Abby, my support, my encouragement, and my kick in the pants. She’s tenacious and one of the strongest people that I know. For the first few years of my life, she was a single mom. Back then, that was a stigma. Add to it a multi-racial child and you get the picture. We’ve braved the world together, cried over lost pets, and made it through multiple field trips. (Sorry I tried to pet the lion, mom.;)

Today is her 65th birthday. I can hardly fathom it. It doesn’t seem possible, when I can so clearly remember our groovy clothes from the seventies and our Bloody Mary shopping trips. *g*

Happy Birthday to the woman I respect, love, and cherish. Mom, may you have many, many, many more. I love you. 🙂

Changing Scenes

I finished my first round of edits on RED. I am getting ready to print out the book, so that I can take it with me. (Dh and I are heading out for a few.) I’m actually looking forward to the change of scenery. Even resort areas get old, if you’ve been there too long. Not sure how much blogging I’ll get done while I’m away. (Won’t have regular access to a computer.) Normally, that would bum me out, but I’m kind of looking forward to it.

Now of course comes the real hard part…which books do I pack to read??? I have so many on my TBR pile that I’m just not sure. Will I be in the mood for a paranormal? Historical? Graphic Novel? Contemporary? UGH! I just don’t know. I’ve been jumping all over the place lately. I know I won’t have time to read more than two novels because I don’t read fast enough. Did I mention that I also have a ton of magazines that I haven’t gotten around to reading yet? At last count, I was four RWR (Romance Writer’s of America mags), five Novelist Inc. newsletters, and two Romantic Times Magazines behind. (Stop staring at that stack of seven Discover magazines in the corner. *g*) This is what happens when editing takes over ones world.

I realized something else that’s kind of sad. I won’t actually get to work on a new book until the end of July, if all the edits I have due come in on time. 🙁 That’s just not right.

As you can tell, I have nothing to really say. If you have some suggestions for books I should take, shout them out. In all likelihood, I own them. (wg) I would like to congratulate my girl, Catherine. She entered and completed her first triathlon. Mega cool news. Please stop by and congratulate her. 😀

See What Happens…

This is what happens when I think out loud. *ggg* I should know better by now. 😉
