Sorry about the long absence (again….). Things have been their usual whacko selves.
The NJRWA conference was AWESOME!! My friend Jen and I had so much fun there, the people were great and friendly. We met some new people. I had my picture taken with J.R. Ward (I told her that she is my new hero. She seems to work in a similar way that I do, and it’s working for her! So that means it should work for me, too, right?). I learned so much, and was reminded of more things that I knew, but just had to hear again. It was very energizing.
It’s getting cold. Freezing. Which I would mind so much, but it makes my fingers very stiff, and it’s hard to type with stiff fingers!
Still working very hard on Mea Tullia. I’m trying to find a good balance between researching, writing, and planning. My goal for the end of the month is to have all the major scenes sketched out in narrative, and hopefully a lot of the in between scenes as well. By the end of this month I should definitely know everything that is going to happen in the novel, and when/where in the novel it will take place.
I fixed up and sent out FIVE short stories over the weekend. I have one more that needs to have an overhaul, and then maybe I’ll find that one a home too…
