A pretty good day

Well, I really have no room to complain today. I just write 2,930 words in Book #2. Sure, that may not seem like a lot to some people, but when you're as far into a book as I am, I think that's pretty good.

Hopefully I can keep up the pace so I can finish Book #2. I can't wait to see the full version all printed out!

Horoscopes

My horoscopes are frequently dead-on. It's pretty weird actually, and has been known to freak some people out. I just looked at mine for today, and I've got to say that I'm really hoping that its accurate. The first sentence says:
"New career opporunities, perhaps involving writing or speaking, could appear on the horizon along with the current planetary enegy."
I freaking hope so! I'm so ready for my boys to make their appearance. I really hope that this horoscope is dead on, just like it is many other times. Maybe everyone will know my name soon enough. :o)

Distractions, Distractions

Wow, I have really tried to focus this weekend. Really, I have. But, I keep finding myself distracted. 'Ooh, that new book is really good, I should really keep reading it.' 'Hey, its hot outside, maybe a dip in the pool would be fun.' 'Hey, why don't I try to make a flowering onion, it can't be hard, right?' (which, by the way turned out to taste FANTASTIC, it just looked really ugly.)

So basically what this boils down to is....
I suck!

My boys need attention. Sure, I wrote over 1,000 words last week in their 2nd book, but in the grand scheme of things, thats really not a lot. And its not enough. In addition to my boys needing their time, so do my other series. And, what's frustrating, is that the new book I just bought, well, let's just say that there are some similitarities to one of my teen series that has upset me. Sure, the storyline is different, but some of the scenes I've already planned out are all too close to some scenes in the book I just read. GRRR.
Oh well. I'll just have to make sure that I make it my own.

Attention? Not sure I have attention span left...

I've been a slacker with keeping up on my blogs. Oh, and with writing...

My hubby and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary, and I've found myself getting extremely distracted. I made myself find time today, and I sat down and edited Draven's book for four hours. Now, I'm going to try to work on Raider's. But why, oh why does the swimming pool have to look so tempting outside the window?

Anyone who knows me personally knows that my mind never sleeps. During all hours of the day, I'll be working on projects, but my mind is also going through the stories that I still need to write (or the one's I've written). At night, when I try to sleep, my mind does the same thing. I feel like I'll never get rest until I actually get these suckers down. Which leads me to my next comment.

My other series is pushing to the forefront. I'll be thinking of my Guardian series, and my other one will make an appearance. I only wish there were enough hours in the day to get everything down.

Query #4

I just sent off Query #4. This time I actually sent it to a publisher rather than an agent. Fingers crossed I'll get better results. So, I know I'll need to do some more research and submit more queries, but to be honest, I'm just glad that I have it out there at least once. Hopefully I can find others that look trustworthy enough to submit to, but I'll just take it one step at a time. Afterall, my boys might not wait around forever, and I really need to get their stories down.
