A bit of a wander, then a question…

Elle is in Chicago, I think, but I’ll send her a message to see how she wants to select her winner. When I know, I’ll post the name at the top of yesterday’s blog. So check back!

Lord, I’m tired. I’ve been writing like a demoness. You’ve seen the list of books and shorts I have to produce. Right now, I’m working on a sequel to the first Delta Heat story. I hope to wrap it up by Thursday, because on Friday, I’m heading to the woods with my Diamond sisters. We’re having a writers’ retreat. There will be a dozen of us camped out in a lodge with a designated timekeeper urging us to write in two-hour blocks. Sound like fun? It is for me. I know. A little strange, right? 🙂

The best part is that my sister will be there. We have some co-written projects we have to hash through. Books we wrote a while back but got too busy to deal with. We’re going to revise them and let Samhain figure out what to do with them. They’re sexy romantic comedy. Texas tycoons, hapless heroines. Can’t wait for you to see. We still giggle over some of the scenes, so there’s magic in there. However, the gems need some major polish!

My daughter called me last night, asking if I was mad at her. Why haven’t I been over? Why don’t I talk to her as much as I used to? Of course, now I feel major guilt. She knows my schedule is insane, but she can’t help feeling a little neglected. Never mind that I swim in the pool with her and the kids at least once a day (she lives right across the street). I’m going to try my best to wrap things up early today so I can have dinner with her and the fam. Ain’t it grand bein’ loved?

Enough of my life now. Let’s talk about yours.

Do you have kids, siblings, parents whom you’ve neglected because you’re busy? What are you planning to do to fix that?
