My Distraction!

I got very little writing done yesterday and this is the reason why…








This is Bailey. He’s a really cool Minature Doberman, and cute as a bug. He belongs to my son. I played with him too much yesterday…but seriously, how can I resist?

So that was my distraction–what’s yours?

    I was working, just not on my WIP. I worked on graphic stuff all day yesterday–designed biz cards-built a web site and did some cool stuff with graphics-then I had to write press release for my chapter– and update that website….
    I think you see where I’m going with this. heheh

    Needless to say I was BUSY!

    But I want to finish my book this week, so I will write today. :)And my dog is like Mandi’s. It just lays there.

    I’ll have pics of past and present fuzzy distractions up tomorrow. The internet is my big time suck right now. I’m going to quickly zip through blogs, comment, and shut down the net while I work. I got just over 40 pages edited yesterday. I’m up to Chapter 9. I want this MS done and back to my editor ASAP!

    See ya’ll for happy hour! Already 81 degrees at 8:30 so appletini slushies for lunch!

    My distraction yesterday was Phoenix. Thanks for the loan. ;)

    I have somehow ended up with two copies of Blood Magic. I am giving the one of them away on my blog. Come by and visit.

    Hey guys! wow! you’ve been chatty while I’ve been off doing exciting stuff like grocery shopping.

    I’m going to have some exciting news on SOUL MAGIC this week, I think. I just found out…so now…back to our regular blog!

    Dru, I love blogs too! I’m being really strict about limiting myself right now and it’s not fun!

    Mandi, blogs really are a time suck, aren’t they? But they are fun and I get a lot of info from them too.

    Bailey lays around at home, but since he was visiting, I just had to play with him.

    Silver you are moxing along in your revisions! You know I really have a love/hate with the Internet.

    Oh and thanks on the dog! I’m normally a big dog person, but this little guy is hard to resist.

    I thought about keeping it in case my other copy became worn down, but I didn’t want to deprive any other readers the amazing story of BLOOD MAGIC. ;)

    Silver, WHERE’S THE SQUIRREL??? I WANNA SEE! Sheesh, I can’t get my butt out of my chair until I do 3-4 more pages.

    I’ll take Appletini anyway I can get them.

    I want to hear about your iPhone!

    I’ll tell you all about it, just as soon as I figure it out. LOL!

    In the meantime…I have a secret. Ya’ll will just have to wait until tomorrow….Shhhhhh.

    *pours more appletinis* That dang squirrel kept me from getting any more than 31 pages done. Hoping for a couple of hours of quiet tonight to at least finish this chapter.

    Erika, Phoenix said you’re a giver, although maybe not in those exact words ;-)

    Silver you’re mean! WHY does it have to be a secret? Hmm, wonder if I can find out in my crystal ball?

    And quit trying to distract me with appletinis!!!! And squirrels!

    Silver…ROTFL! I was out for a walk and didn’t see a squirrel drinking and appletini!
