Monday Round Up!

It was another working weekend, but I have make big progress! I’m so happy! I finished all the heavy revising and now I just need to add a few things then get the whole thing cleaned up.  The way I cut, paste, rewrite, then move scenes again, it’s bound to be a mess. But still, the end is in sight!

YAY! And right now, I’m feeling decent about the it. This is Key’s book SINFUL MAGIC. We’ll see what my editor says when I send it to her in a week or so.

Now let’s talk about my weekend distractions. First on Saturday my middle son and Bailey Dog came for a visit. Middle son and Wizard, so Bailey stayed with me.  I knew I had to work, so I took Bailey for a walk to tire him out. Here he is after our walk:

But then he got lonely. He looked up at me with his big brown puppy eyes that pleaded,  “Can I sit with you?”

But I was at my desk using my slide out key board. Very firmly, I said, “No Bailey, I have to work.”

He looked even sadder. “Please?”

“No.” I was serious. I had to get this book written!

Well you can see how well Bailey listens:

That’s  my big hips and thighs Bailey’s making himself comfortable on. He slept there while I toiled away.

On Sunday, Wizard lured me away from the computer and into the pool and jacuzzi…there may have been a bribery in the form of a gin-and-tonic. Wizard is evil like that.  It’s a miracle I get any work done at all!

How was your weekend?

    Awwwww! At least Bailey gets in your lap. LOLcat lays across the keyboard. She is ebil like that!

    This weekend was a blur. I can’t remember what I did but catch up on some much needed sleep. We had lots of rain, which was badly needed so a good time to just let the brain chill out and do some plot cogitating.

    I can’t wait for Key’s story! I knew you’d get it sorted out. :D

    This weekend was way too short, especially after a long one last weekend and now they expect us to work a full week???

    I had a good weekend overall. The youngest had his first soccer game, they played a team that has been together for a few seasons so they were feeling a bit bummed but they finally made their first goal and it turned the whole game around for them. My youngest scored a goal and the smile on his face was priceless. I am hoping I got a picture of it but I think I was too busy cheering. LOL

    I bought a new bookshelf and reorganized all my books, that was a task itself but it looks and feels better. Now if I can just tackle all the books on my TBR list. :)

    Silver, did you get my email this weekend? If you didn’t, I’ll resend.

    Kitty on the keyboard would make typing a huge challenge!

    Hope the rain didn’t cause any problems. But it does create a good plot-pondering atmosphere :-)

    Amanda, we should rebel against the full work work!

    Congrats to your youngest! He had to be thrilled to kick that goal!

    You’re making me feel guilty with all that organizing!

    Awww, Bailey’s wuvs you. I wish Kira would just lay across my lap, but she likes to lay in between me and the keyboard. She’s too thick to be a good wrist-rest. LOL

    Good for Wizard. You probably needed a little luring away. A G&T by the pool sounds awesome. =o)

    I spent the weekend watching football, reading and trying to decide what to work on next. I got some words written on a new story and then last night I started to tackle a suspense I never got around to editing. It needs a lot of work. Alotalot. :shrug: It’s been ignored long enough. No rest for the wicked… I mean weary. ;o)

    My friends and I went to Indy to see Sherrilyn Kenyon. We drove there on Friday cuz we wanted to be at the store when it opened Saturday. We had dinner at Cheeseburger In Paradise after we got there. I love the atmosphere there. And the food’s great too. Saturday, we got to the store just before it opened and there was already a line. They handed out wrist bands for the signing and we were in the first group. Yea! We spent most of the day at Borders looking at books, reading and chatting with other Kenyon fans. That’s one of the best parts of author signings. We always meet such great people. Sherri did a Q&A before the signing. One of the fans gave away a spoiler with her question. Good thing I was already past that point in the book or I’d have had to kill her ;) Sherri also had a raffle to give away prizes while she was signing books. We had a blast. She’s coming to Ann Arbor with Diana Love (who was also with her this time) next month for the release of BLOOD TRINITY. Guess where I’ll be then :-D

    Oh don’t feel too guilty. I probably spent way too much time on it and avoided other things. :)

    B.E., Bailey is a spoiled dog :-) But your Kira sounds just as demanding!

    You never rest! It seems like you’re always toiling away!
