Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Happy Easter, Everybody!

My husband's at work, my kids are tearing around the house on a chocolate high, and I'm doing housework. A typical Easter Sunday around here. *g* I hope everybody is having a wonderful holiday.

Yesterday was absolutely NOT a writing day. I was out of the house all day--my daughter competed in the County Jr. Olympics (took third place in two track events and fourth place in a field event) and then from there, we headed to a downtown venue where my husband was setting up for Easter services (he works for a church). In other words, I left the house at 9am yesterday, and didn't get back until almost 11. By then, I was too burned out to get any writing done. So I finished reading The Next Big Thing (wonderful book--kudos to Johanna Edwards!) and started a new book.

This past Friday night, I posted my synopsis for IH over at the RWAOL critique board, and just popped by there this morning to take a look at the critiques I received. It's pretty much unanimous that I need more info in there about Chris, and a couple lines didn't read like they were supposed to. Looks like I'll be splitting my time between the FDi30D worksheets and editing and polishing this synopsis.

And I don't think I'll be meeting my self-imposed deadline for submitting IH, but it'll be pretty close. I'll probably hold it until we return from vacation. That way, I'm not worrying about it while I'm riding Space Mountain. *g*

Oh, and I finally watched my TiVo'd second episode of Mr. Romance, the contest on the Oxygen Network where the winner gets a contract to model for the cover of a Harlequin Romance. As with the first episode, I laughed my butt off! I'm not rooting for anybody yet, although Adam (one of the contestants) has posted a couple times over at Romance Divas. I do know who I don't like, though.

Seriously, if you haven't seen this, and you get the Oxygen Network, I recommend it for some light, fun entertainment. New episodes air on Monday nights at 10/9 central.
