Yeah, human stuff... Actually, I'm up to my eyeballs in edits, thanks to my fabulous editor, the Shadow Frog. Fix this, this, and this... So, I'm kinda busy.
Happy to report that all family members in the path of Ike are fine. A little damp, but fine as they were prepared. Interesting that I seem to talk to the family more in hurricane season. I wonder why that is?
For those interested in participating in such things, I'll have an Anny and Friends chat tonight from 7PM -9PM EST at the EC chat loop. Please come, bring your excerpts and chat. Tell us about your books and plans.
I've been stumbling around in the dark lately regarding my writing. The editing has given me a chance to regroup and reassess my work. It's not terrible. It could be better--as all writing can be better. Very few writers look at their work even a few weeks later and don't find things that make them wince or things that they wish they could change. So I'll keep plugging away, happy for one more opportunity to make those changes before the book goes out in public.
I spent Saturday looking at several short "jump-start" beginnings for new works in progress. It was pretty funny. After reading one of them, I looked around and thought what was I thinking? But the others were good. Short. Very short, but good. So I have something to mull over in the wee hours while I consider changes for my current work in progress. Yes, yes, after I finish the edits!
I'm sure that all of you are busy with fabulous chores. Leave me a note and tell me what you're doing. I'll randomly draw a name to win a free copy of any of my current releases. So, if you want to win, make sure I have an e-mail to reach you!
Shazamm! I'm out of here!
