Life Happens

Let's begin with a...way to go, Dara! She got Deb Dixon to guest blog!

Someone needs to be getting something done around here, and for the last week or three, it hasn't been me. Life happened. Oh, I could make a list that would collect hugs, prayers...but really, sometimes the dips help you appreciate the highs.

So...How about a round of to-do lists? As in...what do you need to get done before the end of the month? There are big deadlines coming up...the Brava novella contest, the SuperRomance contest, heck, I had to register my RITA judging preferences today!

  • Polish the partial of Where There's Smoke.
  • Draft a synopsis for Orgasmic.
  • Prep my Writing To Deadline workshop.
  • Complete my handouts for the CORL conference.
  • Fast Draft Getting Personal.
And you? What's on your list?


Jenna is hard at work on her next title for Mills & Boon Modern Extra. In the meantime, check out her website, blog, or reading group, We Call It Research.

I'm getting ready for a plotting retreat, getting #1 child ready for college (YIKES!), editing (again) my just finished MS, waiting for edits back on a 95,000 word MS from my editor and polishing up several workshops I'll be giving in the next couple months.

How funny. I just listed my goals that I want to accomplish before the baby comes on my blog.

You're busy!

Yes...and then my grandfather died today, so all of this gets pushed out another month...

I'm getting ready for grad school. I have one MS to finish by the end of the week and another before the end of September Then another before the end of November!! Whew...
I've got a slew of signings and workshops scheduled as well, so between my day job, my family and my professional obligations, I have no idea where I'm going to find the time to finish up all these projects.
Sorry about your grandfather, Jenna.
