Good things ahead

I finally feel like I’m getting caught up with my deadlines at work. It’s tough writing and editing all day and then coming home with the intention to write. Doesn’t happen much. So, tonight I am going to work on my day job work and get a jump ahead so I can spend some time on my WIP this weekend. I’m so excited about my new project.

I’m also excited about an author interview coming up. Michelle Rowan, author of Bitten & Smitten has agreed to be interviewed for this blog. Do yourself a favor and pick up this gem, it’s funny and adventurous and unique. Bitten & Smitten is Michelle’s first published book, and it’s been extremely successful (read this review).

Well, time to get to work. Have a great weekend folks!

I have read all of Anne rice's books featuring vampires, but I don't know that I'd want to read others as well. What shets this book apart so that I should read it?

Michele sent me, Nienke, and I appreciate your visit and comment.

Hello from Michele! I can totally relate to the deadline problem at work. Good luck getting the jump on it. I've got a few friends who are into vampire novels heavily, so I'll be checking out this book. All the best.

I haven't had time to continue cartooning... much less starting any writing projects, though my wife has suggested it. Between work, continuing grad. school, hockey and changing diapers... Something had to give, and it wasn't going to be hockey.

Nice to meet you. Here via Michele today. I love your name and the lovely photo, too.

I found you via Michele's today, but I'll be back. I'm always interested to browse the blogs of other writers.

I know what you mean about having trouble finding time and motivation to write. I'm just trying to finish up some longstanding short projects to clear my plate for my first novel idea

Hi there, the lovely Michele sent me.

I can fully empathize with you on the need to find balance between projects. These past few weeks have thrown me right off, and now I too am scrambling to get caught up so I can focus on my WIP.

Good luck, and I look forward to seeing your interview with Michelle Rowan.

Cheers.

It must be hard for your job and your life outside work to be one and the same. Good luck.

Here from Michele.

I write and edit for my dayjob, too, and yeah, sometimes it's tough to go home and work on my novel. But my solution was to buy a laptop so I could sit on the couch instead of at a desk, which I do all day at work. :-)

I can absolutely relate to the whole I-did-this-all-day-I-don't-want-to-think-about-it-anymore feeling. Except for me, it has more to do with glaring at a computer screen. Here from Michele's today. Good luck with your projects!

Megan said...

Oh sweetie, I can so relate. I do the same thing: writing and editing by day, then trying to sit down and work on a novel at night. I feel like I should attach the computer to my hands.

Hi - Michele sent me!

I hear ya. I'm a contractor, and we're in year nine of remodeling our home.

Hey, visit Paula more often. She needs more readers in the publishing/writing field.

And she's just nice, to boot.
