I've had a busy, albeit productive day. First thing out the gate I updated the Midnight Moon Cafe website. There is a new calendar of events up, and the navigation tab for "blog" now actually links to the MMC blogspot blog.

I also pdf'd and posted 9 Midnight Brew Interviews to the Interviews page at the website - these are available for free download for anyone who wants to read them. www.midnightmooncafe.com Lots of wonderful authors are on the roster, so be sure to check that out.

I also managed to write 2k words today, and I finished a short story that I started working on yesterday. It's a very, very naughty contemporary romance that I'd love to see picked up before the year is out. I'm going to print it up tonight and glance through it, red pen it where it needs it, but I don't think it will need but maybe a touch of work.

The progress on Love Fool is another story entirely. It's coming along, but the clean up is a big challenge. I've been hitting it chapter by chapter, because looking at it as a whole project is just too overwhelming. I have two publishers in mind for it, so we'll see what happens once I get it ready to go out. I'm going to check my options carefully and may just simulataneous submit that story. I'll have the check the guidelines for those publishers.

Tomorrow I have to pick up my mom and take her around to all her business places. She hurt her back and can't get in and out of her truck. I volunteered to drive her, so we're going to make it a mommy-daughter day on top of the businessy stuff. It's been a long time since we've done that.

My common cold has run into a bout of sinitus. Ho hum. I've about vaporized myself into a shriveled prune with...well, the vaporizer. And I've probably taken enough Benedryl Sinus and Allergy to drop a horse. Still I'm stuffy and congested, bloody nose, ewwww just darn feel bad grossness that I'm sharing with you now by telling you all about it. Wonderful, aren't I?

Anyway, I'm trying to get a grip on the day. I know I've done quite a bit, and it should be enough, but it always feels like there's something I missed, or I could have done more. Ah well. That can't be helped.

I'm off now to go get the laundry out of the dryer. Gotta make sure the guys have jeans and uniforms for tomorrow. Happy Thursday, everyone! ^_^

  1. This is totally off subject. I was wondering if you could suggest more books like Beginnings, Middles, & Ends? I've two kids also (8yr.old & 4yr. old) and reading your blog has inspired me to start writing again. Just that it's been so long I can't figure out where to start. Thank you, Sarah

  2. No problem, Sarah. I just posted about another good book, and I'll search through my keeper shelf to see what other good ones I can recommend.

    Good luck with your writing! :)
