Sunday Report Card

This week was pretty much full steam ahead. As I mentioned a week or so ago, I have to finish 12 projects I’ve committed to writing by January 2, 2013. Well, oops! There are really 14 projects!

In that list are:

4 full-length novels (2 paranormal suspense, 2 BDSM)
3 novellas (1 Delta Heat, 1 Lone Star Lover, 1 TBD)
3 short stories
2 anthologies I have to edit (Wild at Heart, Smokin’ Hot Firemen)
1 novel to extensively edit & expand (it’s a secret!)
1 novella to extensively edit and publish

Where am I now? On Monday, I finished the edits my editor asked for on the first short story and shipped it. Count one short story done! (Throws confetti!) And I am a little more than midway through the first novella.

This next week I hope to wrap that one up, get my notes for the first full-length novel complete, and work on that novel that has to be extensively expanded. Plus, come next Friday, I’ll be joining my sisters from the Diamond State Romance Authors in a 3-day writers’ retreat!

I need those pom-poms swishin’! Go, Delilah! Go, Delilah! Go! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

    Not sure how to inspire you to work hard on all those projects – everything I try on my author daughter fails miserably :D
