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.

Laughing My Ass Off

I really wish it wasn't just a phrase. Wouldn't it be great if you could lose tonnage just by laughing? Shoot, I'd already be back down to my pre-husband weight if I really could laugh my ass off. But after a really good laugh, I've checked. It's all still there. Rats.

I officially declare today Writing Day. I only have two small errands to run, so I'll just leave early to pick my son up from school and get them done on the way. The rest of the day is for writing--at least, while my kids are in school. I'll finish that crit. I'll get more done on BMO.

My copy of FDi30D seems to have sprouted legs...I'm afraid my husband might have "put it away" last time he helped clean house, and goodness only knows where it's ended up. Darn good thing I'd already done up all the worksheet templates and stored them on my JumpDrive.

I started to work on stuff last night, but another idea I've had brewing for a while got in the way. Demanded to be let out. So instead of working on BMO or the IH synopsis I jotted down a four-page beginning for this other idea and went to bed.

So today will be all about that crit, and Chad and Dakota. I'll turn on some tunes and get hopping. Of course, I'll have to get it all done before the kids get home, because afterward, it'll be After School Activity Hell Day. My daughter's got her Tae Kwon Do lesson AND a soccer game.

Wonder if I'll be able to convince the kids to go to bed early so I can get more done tonight?


  • Hope your Writing Day goes smoothly!

  • Thank you, Dana. I'll need all the good jujus I can get. Why is everything always so distracting when I'm determined to write?

  • Did your Thursday work out for you? Hope it did..My FDi30D is still hanging out trying to make me feel guilty. I did print some work pages and do a "little" but to excited about the trip south to do much.

  • It's hard to get things done when you've really got something you're looking forward to, isn't it?

    Thursday was okay, but Friday was better. Good luck with your stuff!
