What’s New ~ The August Edition

Progress ReportExciting things are in the works.

Maybe.

It’s far too early to say for sure, but there’s at least been a nibble on the end of my fishing line. I will tell more when I can, of course.

This summer has been a fun, busy one for me. Between work, writing, edits and revisions, and parties and cookouts the past few weekends–with more to come–it feels like it’s moving way too fast. Before I know it I’m going to be putting away the flip-flops and breaking out the jeans and sweaters. Not that my heart will be broken. Fall is my favorite time of the year.

This month I’m trying something I haven’t tried for a couple of years. Actually, it’s been since November of 2011 since I tried something this crazy. I’m quick-writing the first draft of a new category-length book–sort of holding my own version of NaNoWriMo in August. I’ll let you know how it goes in next month’s post.

How are you spending the end of your summer?

Declaring my Independence

shutterstock_104193254… aka, What’s New ~ the updated July edition.

Pet-sitting for eldest son went out the window. I’ll mostly be home this weekend, hard at work on major revisions for the first book of my next series. I’m really excited about the new direction this story is taking, so I’m very much looking forward to doing the work.

I’ve decided to declare my independence from social media this weekend. I know I’m mostly a lurker, but there are so many places to lurk, and so many things to see, that it takes up a lot of my time. I’m giving myself, and my eyes, a break for the next three days.

Also, in an event that has been a long time coming, I’ve decided it’s high time to cut beef, pork, all fast food including pizza (SOB!), and those oh-so-convenient writer’s friends frozen meals out of my diet. I have been neglecting my health for years. It’s now or never, my friends, and I have a lot to live for. Up to and including trying to make that delicious looking patriotic sangria up there. ;)

For those of you who celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!
