Getting butt in gear…
Thursday, June 26th, 2008


Current progress for Texas Men

As you can see from my progress bar, it’s been slow-going since I started. I think I have that licked. The first chapter gave me fits because it had to be pacey, had to be funny and descriptive, and I had to cut some stuff I wanted to add because I thought it was so cool, but it didn’t really help. Stop. Start. Stop. Back at it now!

Starting this weekend, I’ll be participating in a Book-in-a-Week challenge that will hopefully kick my ass into high gear. Then I’m housesitting for someone later in July. I’ll be away from my telephone so no one will be able to reach me. AND I don’t plan to use her Internet connection more than once a day. I may take my AlphaSmart and type like my hair’s on fire. I have to finish this book and a novella by the end of August, so I can’t dick around!

Tomorrow I’ll post pictures of me and some of my writer buddies flying around Lake Hamilton on a pontoon boat. It’s nice hanging with writers, dreaming up new things to write about.

Hope you’ve had a chance to get your copy of Sin’s Gift. If you buy it, let me know if you’d like me to write more in that series. I’m inclined to do so, but would like to hear your desires!

    Looking forward to the pictures. :D The words book combined with week scare me for some reason. It must be buckling down season. I have to get 5K done by Monday and various friends and acquaintances are struggling with deadlines too. Good luck. No internet and phone always help me. :D

    Emma! Thanks!
    You could always try some timed writing with buddies to get you revved!
