3rd Monday in a Long Month

There was a week last week. I think. Between insomnia, deadlines, life, and what not (it’s always the what nots that get in the way, doncha know…) and I’m trying to actually remember stuff. Any stuff. Because…insomnia, deadlines, life, and what not… One of those what nots was learning to make a Powerpoint presentation, get it saved in Dropbox, get open on my laptop, and up on a big screen in a meeting room. So, yay! I presented a program to OKRWA on using body language to describe emotions. I think people enjoyed it. I’m considering refining the program and submitting it to RWA as a panel for RWA2018 in Denver. And speaking of RWA, I’m running for the national board as a Director-at-Large. It’s a large field so we’ll see how I do. If any of you belong to RWA, please vote in September.

Moving on.

Uhm…. *looks right* … *looks left* Uhm… There’s not much changed since this time last week. I’m still not quite done with ASSASSIN’S MOON. Today or tomorrow. Then it’s back to Tucker’s story. And then it’s on to Roman’s book. So, that sums up my writing at the moment.

As for reading, I’ve returned to some “comfort” reads. I’m currently listening to Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick books, interspersed with her Chaos MC books. I enjoy her voice and the stories (even when I’m rolling my eyes) and because I’m familiar, I can listen and do other things. I’m all about multi-tasking at the moment because so much to do, so little time. There’s a new In Death book coming in September. Yay! Also, a new Once Upon A Djinn book coming in September from B.E. Sanderson. I have a digital arc of WISH HITS THE FAN and I’m loving it when I get the chance to read-read rather than listen-read. I’ll be putting my money down on that puppy for the “real” copy as soon as it comes out. If any of y’all like Djinn magic, this series is for you!

I saw an idea about using peel and stick wallpaper on floors. It made me want to go buy some, scrub my kitchen floor and do it. Like I have time for that stuff. I need to stay off the DIY sites and not open the newsletters I get. Just sayin’.

On that note, this is Monday. I have words to write and edit, plot holes to patch, timelines to straighten out, and derring for my hero to do. Have a great week, everyone.

  1. :blush: I’m so glad you’re loving it. And thank you for poking me in the buns to write this book. I hope you think I did the series justice here. And that you don’t want to poke me in the eye when you’re finished. (I don’t think you will, but I never know.)

    Yes, stay off the DIY sites. Hubs was planning future projects yesterday – including making an interior access to underneath the house for storm emergencies. I got tired just listening to him and he’ll be doing most of the work. Good luck on the campaign trail to become Madam Director. Now, get back to work. Hehehe, like I have any room to talk.

    This week, I decided to get back to work on Early Grave (SCIU #3). Made some progress last night. Not much, but better than nothing. We’ll see how much I get done before WHTF comes back from JC. Busy busy. And off I go…

    Have a great day!

      I had to have the end of Jo and Zeke’s story–no matter HOW it turns out and despite my propensity to skip to the end just to check, I’m being good. LOL I think making a storm shelter under the house is a good idea but then I have one and live in the buckle of the Tornado Belt. 😆

      Sorry about your ankle! Ow! Keep it elevated and write!! 😉
