I don’t think this cup is big enough. I’m not sure the pot on my coffee maker is big enough. Why yes, I AM in deadline hell. Why do you ask? 🙄 I’m at 31,859 words. I should already be 50-55K words, the thing should be edited and off to my CP and beta reader. Yeah. No. *sigh* I fully intend to have this sucker written and at least a first edit done before I give up and hit my deadline. I’ve been told the DL is a little flexible. But… I foresee a lot of Starbucks in my future–especially since they keep sending me lots of emails about getting more stars on my card and all their specials. ‘Tis the season…
So, a quick rundown. Weekend. There was one. I had OKRWA Saturday. We spent the morning discussing Deep POV. We had a wonderful lunch at the Museum Cafe. We had probably the shortest Annual General Meeting in the history of RWA. (19 minutes). Then we did a one-hour write-in to honor NaNoWriMo. Oh, and one important note from OKRWA–we all voted Sam Elliott as having the Voice Most Likely to Give an Orgasm Just By Talking. Because, you know…SAM ELLIOTT! Which discussion sort of distracted me because I was in the middle of the first sexy scene in RDR#4. It wasn’t happening. Because, while I really like Chase? He ain’t Sam Elliott. Just sayin’. I did get that sucker written yesterday. After I did some reading this morning.
Which…reading! OMG I’ve been a glutton for the written word of others this past week. Between RL stress, DL, and other stuffs going on, Insomnia is still my BFF. I read Kristen Ashley’s new Chaos book, WALK THROUGH FIRE. Loved it. But then I had to go back to reread the others. But first, I needed to read MOTORCYCLE MAN, which is the last of her Dream Man series, but the prequel to the Chaos series. So I reread MM. Then the other Chaos books, and then I had to go back to reread the first Dream Man, MYSTERY MAN because Hawk! Okay, and Gwen. But HAWK! Which brought up Lee Nightingale so I had to reread the first book in the Rock Chicks series, ROCK CHICKS. Then I gave up. Because I needed to get off the contemporary–I can’t read what I’m writing at the time, as a rule. So then I had to start my marathon reread of another favorite series, Jennifer Lyons Wing Slayer Hunters. I finished off BLOOD MAGIC, with Axel and Darcy. Now I’m on to SOUL MAGIC, with Sutton and Carla. LOVE this series.
Okay. Sports. I have to go there though I have a 1/4 😦 face and a 1/4 🙂 face, with a big ol’ helping of half 😀 face. Baylor beat OSU. 10-1 is not bad standing for the Big 12, though 11-0 would have been better and very likely would have put us in the top 4. That’s the 😦 part. OU took out TCU and they stayed strong in the polls. If they beat the Pokes this coming Saturday, they will probably be in the playoffs which makes it tough. I’d love to see an Oklahoma team in there, and it probably won’t be the Pokes, but…if they do beat OU? *big sigh* Bedlam is always fun. However the really big 😀 is that the darn ol’ pretender OSU got beat! By Michigan State! I already sent hearts to B.E. for one of her teams making a dark Saturday a bit brighter.
Writing. It goes. I did mention deadline brain, right? Yeah, I has it. Big time! Because of that whole Thanksgiving and family time coming, this will be my only post and I’ll be laying low from posting in social media. I’ll try to keep up with blogs and emails. I think RDR#4 is coming together. It better. I have 8 days to type THE END. I will get there! I will!
TV. Not doing much watching except as background noise. After dinner, KP duty, dog duty, and the like, I crawl into bed and read, TV mumbling across the room. My DVR is stacking up again. I should put the books away for a few evenings and get it cleared off. I’ll get right on that. Soon.
So, anyway, that’s the state of me. How’s the state of you? What all did y’all get up to this weekend?
