Happy Friday!

It’s the weekend already! For me, it’s going to be a working weekend. In order to pressure myself, I’ve schedule editing and formatting for CAGED MAGIC so now I have to get the book done. Deadlines are important for that reason, and I’m going to try very hard to make it. It must be done by March 1 or earlier.

Linc is not happy with this plan. After all his complaining that I wasn’t writing his story, he’s balking big time because he doesn’t like the way the story is going. I swear there is just no making men happy :-)  I also have Ram and Eli to worry about. Although Eli is very patient, think of a lion stalking his prey…he’s going to spring and I’m trying to hold him back until the next book, PRIMAL MAGIC that will be his story. And Ram keeps insisting he’s fine…um…he’s not. The guy is like a human live wire spewing electrical energy that can kill him. So not fine.

So what are you guys doing this weekend?

    You’re going to have a very busy weekend. Linc needs to start cooperating. In the end I’m sure he’ll be very happy with the outcome. But like you said, there’s no pleasing men;).

    Thank you for giving us the heads up on the next two books:).

    This is going to be a slow weekend here. Not much going on.

    Have a really good weekend and keep those guys in line.

    Oh, those boys. They need to sit back and trust that you’ll do their stories justice. Sheesh.

    Good for you, giving yourself deadlines and junk. That should hold you accountable and get you back on track. I tried to do the same thing this week – promising to get my proof suggestions entered by the end of today. Then I ended up taking the last two days off because we bought Hubs a boat and had to deal with all that. I really need to work today when all I want to do is sleep. Either way, I will be working this weekend to get the book polished and ready for formatting.

    I’ve lost almost all week do to Monster, but I feel a bit better today, so I how do I catch up on a weeks worth of lost work??? HA! That’s how.

    Anywho, I gotta say, fighting with the WS is not all that bad a proposition. I mean one they are hot, stubborn…but still at least their nice to look at. :) And I know all about deadlines. I got one for my short and #2 DirtSlap.

    If anyone ever says self-pubbing is easy I might blow a gasket. :P just saying!

    Good luck wrangling the WS. Cannot wait to read them!

    Viki, I hope so on this book! I want readers to be happy, and Linc can just deal, LOL!

    I hope you enjoy the weekend!

    B.E., a boat? That’s pretty exciting and fun!

    I hope the deadline works. I’m really trying. I’ll make it if I don’t have interruptions…and there’s on hanging over my head that could arrive in my inbox anytime. But no sense worrying about that until it happens.

    Get those proof suggestions in!

    Ashlynn, sounds like you really had a rough week. Hope its better now.

    Deadlines are good and bad. They really help motivate us but the pressure is harsh.

    LOL on people saying self publishing is easy. People say a lot of things are easy until they try it. Block them out, we’re too busy building our careers for that kind of negative energy.

    A 15′ Jon boat (a bass boat, I think). He’s dreamed of having one for years, and now he can. We just have to wait for it to warm up outside so we can go play on the water. =o)
