Sunday Report Card
Sunday, March 7th, 2010

I pre-posted Friday and Saturday’s blogs, figuring I’d be too busy to bother for once. And I was right. The conference in Shreveport, Louisiana, hosted by the NOLA chapter, ended last night. I’ll have pictures to share tomorrow, but I have my weekly status report to give you first. Yeah, sorry. You have to suffer through it, but keep in mind that I do this to keep things real.

The sad reality is I’m close to completing just one chapter of the big book for the entire week. I worked on nothing but the big book, so I can’t claim progress on anything else. I have excuses—good ones—but excuses won’t get the book written.

This next week doesn’t bode well either. Daughter’s hubby is going out of town, so guess who gets to come babysit babies, dogs and chickens? I have to convince the one-year-old that her playpen is a happy place and the dogs that one trip to the back yard really is enough. Good luck, me. But that doesn’t happen until Thursday, so I better write like my hair’s on fire through Wednesday.

I want to wrap up three chapters this week. Hold me to it. ~DD

    It was a great conference! LOL And I had a blast brainstorming! So much fun stretching the imagination with someone who doesn’t look at you funny when you make outrageous comments about semen. *cackle*

    Well, I don’t know about writing with your hair on fire, but I’m confident that if anyone can bang out three chapters, it’s you! With that comment about semen, I know the NOLA conference had to be great–details, please–to whom was the comment made and in what context? Was alcohol involved? Good luck with the family sitting.

    Good Luck with the writing – I have faith that you can do it. Oh, and remember, when babies sleep, Nona rests.

    Shayla! HaHa! Talking about semen productions was never so much fun.

    Denise! The semen production thingie is going to remain a secret. Until big book 2 comes out.

    Sonya! That’s the way I plan it, but once the kids are out, the dogs will get restless…

    Semen? Well I never!

    Just dropping by to say I’ve bought “Saddled” for my ereader and now I’m seriously tempted to splash out on “Unbridled” and “Unforgiven”.

    Should I have said ‘splash out’ after all this talk of…well…you know? :blush:

    Ah, what the hell, I bought them both. And I only started Saddled this morning, too.

    Oh my virgin eyes! I’m shocked at the filth, I tell you – shocked! :wink:
