Sunday Report Card
Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

The week passed in a whirlwind. Maybe it’s because I kept so busy writing, or maybe it’s because I’ll be leaving for Seattle in little over a week and I’m beginning to get very excited! Woot!

I completed chapters six through nine of a contemporary m/m/f/f—or is it m/f/m/f? Does it really matter? Tons of sex any way you bend it. :twisted:

After a day of feeling sorry for myself after a rejection “but will reconsider it after revisions” response to a recent proposal, I’m back on track and more determined than ever.

I shopped for some casual outfits for the upcoming trip—the most harrowing part of the week. I HATE shopping with passion. Always feels like a huge waste of time and I come away exhausted and wondering how anyone enjoys it. Is it something in our DNA that makes some of us more predisposed to enjoy that sort of self-torture? At least with casual clothing there’s actually a chance I’ll wear the things I bought.

This week I have a day of doctor appointments—including seeing a neuro-opthamologist. Christ is that what he is? (I know I must have butchered the spelling!) But maybe he can tell me whether the blind area in my vision is likely to expand. Wouldn’t have known I had a problem at all if not for the many near-misses in traffic. Pfft. And there I was blaming my car’s manufacturer for poor mirror placement.

Will also have to plan what to do with this blog while I’m gone. I made myself a promise to blog daily. But there’s no WiFi at the lakehouse where I’ll be staying, so no Internet, no email, no TWITTER! I think I’ll pre-write posts for every day I’m gone. Maybe I’ll do an excerpt a day with a chance to win the book kind of contest or something. If you have suggestions, don’t be shy about letting me know!

Have a great week!

    No WiFi at the lake house!!! At first I was shocked then I thought how nice that might actually be.

    Thoughts for the blog….hmmmmm.
    ~ YOUR favorite excerpts from your books

    ~ The one book you think every romance reader should read. (I might use that on my blog I’m curious what people think)

    ~ Top 5 movies to watch for inspiration

    ~ Tell us about your best week ever for writing

    ~ Which is better coffee or tea

    Okay that’s all I can think of right now. Don’t be surprised if I come back later. I’m only on the first cup of coffee right now.
    :grin:

    Sorry to hear about the rejection but at least it’s a revise & maybe! Not sure I could handle the week without wifi! *shudder*

    Are your appointments in LR? Maybe we can meet up for coffee or writing or both!

    I hate shopping too!!!!!!!!!!! It drives me insane.

    You will be missed. I would love a week with no internet. I would give me a reason to not deal with crap.

    I dont have any ideas. Sorry my brain is all used up today.

    Wow – I am so addicted to my tech gadgets. I don’t know if I could go a week without the internet, and not drive my Spouse insane. (But, then again, he is as bad as I am.)

    Ladies – If there was any way possible, I would GLADLY do your shopping for you. I LOVE shopping, and the thought of spending some one else’s $$ is bliss.

    I think Brandy had some good ideas. To add to her list, (1) what about your favorite authors. Who are your auto-buys? (2) What is your all-time favorite love scene in a book. (3) Best season of the year in your part of the country. (4) nature’s best – beach or mountains or forests.

    Shayla! I’d love to meet on Tuesday. I’ll be you know where in the morning. Should be free around noon-ish.

    Heather! Nice to know I’m not the only girl who hates to shop.

    Sonya! If I could, I’d let you do ALL my shopping. Nice suggestions!

    Quite time! What I wouldn’t do for quite time. With 4 girls, 2 dogs and a husband, I’m always stealing time to read. It’s my fantasy life, full of long nights and great wine. I chase it by reading. NOT to say my husband and I don’t do that, we do and when we do it’s priceless yumyum!

    So enjoy your time of tranqullity, it’s good. We’ll miss you and we’ll be excited to get you back!

    Maribel! I don’t know that I’ve seen you here before. Welcome, if I haven’t said it before. And thanks. Although I doubt the time away will be tranquil with 5 women in one cottage. :mrgreen:

    Thank you

    Have fun and don’t forget the wine, with all the ladies in the cottage you’ll need it, maybe? Haha
