I’ve been home from RWA for a week and I still feel like I’m playing catch-up. The last of mail-outs for NRCA certificates and trophies that weren’t picked up go out today. I still need to email the winners with their winners’ buttons.
It’s August. How is that even possible? School starts…like now…or over the next few weeks for almost everyone. This past weekend was Oklahoma’s Tax-Free Back-To-School Buy-Stuff weekend. I stayed away. 😆 I hate crowds even more than I love office supplies. Besides, I’m pretty stocked up with stuff at the moment.
Lawyer Guy and I took Only and Magic Bean Sprout out for lunch Saturday. I’d been up since early and pushed through more of chapter 1 for COWGIRL TOUGH, the working title for Red Dirt Royalty #3. As the first Saturday of the month, it was also siren test day so I went with LG to his “post” (he’s a member of a HAM radio group) and then we met TO and MBS. Baseball Boy works Saturdays at the library. I finished up chapter one when we got home and then took a four-hour nap. Crazy! I NEVER nap that long. It was 8:30 before I woke up and surprisingly, I was asleep by midnight. THAT doesn’t happen either. Just goes to show how tired I was. 😆
Yesterday, I finished Chapter 2 and got an idea for the beginning of Chapter 3. I hope to knock the whole chapter out today after I get back from errands. Then I just have to write a 4-6 page synopsis, a 4-6 synopsis of Chase’s book (he finds a *real* cowgirl in his bed. Then I get to figure out Cash’s book and Kaden’s and decide which one I want to be the last of the Barron brothers. There are “Barron” cousins (last name Tate) so if the series is popular, there will be more to come. I hope to have that all knocked out this week. Uhm…yeah. I know I said my goal was to have it done last week but that’s before Clay turned into a complete PITA. My virtual trashcan was overflowing with the starts and stops to Chapter 1. I finally found the right place–and tone–to start to make him happy. Georgie, his heroine, is much easier to deal with.
I still hope to get on BLUE MOON soon. Antoine and his heroine, US Deputy Marshal DJ Collier, are both chaffing at the bit. My bikers are arguing over their origins so I’m letting them settle things. Yes, my mind is a very busy place. Scarily so. 😉
Some of you are headed to Authors After Dark this week. Have fun! And speaking of fun, who had some this weekend? What’s up with y’all? Who has fun plans for this week? Who has to work? *raises hand* … *wanders off to get more coffee*
