Week-end Progress

With NaNo rapidly approaching I've been feeling the pressure of all the things that need to be done to clear my plate. Happily, I ticked a lot of things of the to-do list this week-end.

  • My first chapter and synopsis for the Presents contest are now finished. Cutting it fine, but allowing a few days for crits before I hit 'send' on the entry.
  • The revisions for Let's Misbehave are done, though on the suggestion of my new crit partner I'm thinking of adding a scene or two to flesh out the story a little before I re-submit to Wild Rose Press at the end of this week.
  • As my on-line crit groups will see, I'm finally clearing that folder on my computer and putting in my two cents' worth.
  • And I even managed to read an entire novel this week-end! Fiona Harper's Invitation to the Boss' Ball, which was one of the best M&B Romances I've read in far too long.

Now if only the rest of my life were falling into line as the writing has done. Right now I feel like I'm on quicksand and my life is being dragged down into an abyss that is not of my own making. The only good thing I can take from the knocks I've had these last few days is that it'll make good fodder for conflict in some future novel ...


  1. Sounds like you've been one busy lady Romy!

    Good luck for NaNo... you're MORE WOMAN than me. I'm not even THINKING about trying it this year :)

  2. Good on you Romy. I'm doing NaNo too.

    Hope you're doing okay with everything else.

  3. Wow! That's a hell of a list you've managed to get through there Romy! I think you get to add Superwoman to the end of your name now!

  4. OK so now you've officially made me feel bad about everything I've got on my To Do list! I'll just have to get cracking to join you in the euphoria of getting things done. Thanks for the motivator!
