It’s been months and months… since I’ve had a moment to stop and smell the roses, lie in the sunshine and just relax or even spend time daydreaming. It wouldn’t be so bad if the writing was going well. But it isn’t. I rarely say that. But so much else has intruded right now that I can’t get back to my wip. That really means there is something wrong with my wip. Sadly I don’t know what that is yet. I will figure it out but in the meantime there is so much else going on in my life I can’t seem to find the time (interpret that as anything is better than a wip that won’t move.)
However it’s not all avoidance. My daughter is home from school because the teachers are on strike and have been for months. My vampire book is heading out today for final proofing then on to release. And I’ve been buried in multi author projects. And I mean buried!

Bake, Love, Write: 105 Authors Share Dessert Recipes and Advice on Love and Writing
What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences. And when authors chat with each other, they often talk about their writing and their lives. Recipes. Writing. Relationships. In this cookbook 105 authors not only share their favorite recipes for fabulous cakes, pies, cookies, candy, and more, they also share the best advice they’ve ever received on love and writing.
You’d think that after all these projects I’d have learned to say no – well I haven’t. Lol. There is a Halloween bundle coming with our lovely ladies Edie Ramer and Mary Hughes. I’m SUPPOSED to be in a Christmas bundle – but that means having an original Xmas themed novella written by like – October 17th! Not a problem normally – right now – it’s a big problem. 🙂
Still these bundles are a great way to meet wonderful new authors and reconnect with some of the old ones I’ve lost touch with. A writer’s world can be very isolated and lonely. Keeping in touch with others doing the same type of work is a joy and keeps me on the pulse of the industry.
