TOOoooo Busy

Wow. I don't know how anybody works, raises kids AND writes. I know there are women out there that do it but since I started my new job three weeks ago, I've only had time to critique some for a fellow author and revise 'forward' on OTHR.

Monday through Friday I've been working, training, traveling to our office 80 miles away, and doing online courses (when my internet wasn't down - that turned out to a $95 problem.)

I'm still running the mail on Saturday. Yesterday, we had to run it twice because of a power outage in Jackson. That didn't really make sense, but the postal service has to abide by its contract which says the first class will be delivered if it makes it to the local facility.

Tomorrow I'm headed to Tennessee for a three day school - a crash course so that's another disruption of my writing schedule. I seem to be in revise and critique mode so I'll read Leah's Sam sequel while I'm in this waiting game to get back to my own writing.

Been thinking about what Cori asked me when I met with her about FIMB. She asked why I was doing it as a novella. Ever since, I don't feel that it's finished because in the back of my mind I was wondering the same thing. I've been trying to get the first 5 chapters of it together to send her as I promised but I no longer think of it as finished.

I just have to take everything a day at a time. It will all work out.

Hi, Wonderwoman. You sound busy, busy, busy. Are you going to rework your novella possibly? Or do you think you might sleep on it for a while and go back to decide later? Best of luck, whatever you choose! :)

Who me?? Wonderwoman? I don't think so. More like Crazy Woman. Yeah, that's it. I need the good wishes. School is going well.

I'm pretty sure I will rework FIMB somehow. I think the hero deserves a longer book and since I'm not sure what needs to be done to accomplish that, it will be later.

I really really need to finish revising OTHR and then start that new something I've been dreaming about.
