I'd Rather Be...

Whew! Mission accomplished, and just in time! I finished rewrites through chapter 12, which is over half the book. And I've loved having the chance to go back over it. Things are sexier, more adventurous and romantic, and generally flow better. This book will be much better, with a longer, stronger word count, because of these rewrites. It's been fun. But oh! What a tight schedule. Between now and Wednesday I have to:
1. Finish rewrites on the entire book
2. Write a chapter of original content
3. Plan and launch a PR campaign
4. Make sure the first chapter of a new novella is ready to go as back matter for the release.
The book is due to the editor on Thursday.
Can I do it?
Damn straight. I have a host of rewards to use as carrots. And besides, I really have no other choice, do I? I want to get this done.

But I won't kid myself that they're aren't other things I'd rather be doing. For instance, I'd rather:
Be reading THIS, because omigod I love this series; I can't get enough Damon:

I'd rather be baking THIS, chocolate chip banana bread made with yellow cake mix. You can find the recipe here, at the Betty Crocker site:

And, of course, I'd much rather be playing THIS, but as this whole blog has pointed out, I have other stuff to do and it will have to fall into the "future rewards" category:

Well, that's all for now. I had better get back to it, especially considering Damon/chocolate banana bread/geeky gaming delight is waiting for me. 


  1. I love the carrots you're dangling. I'm sure come Wednesday you'll be at least chomping, reading (and salivating) before gaming. Fingers crossed. X

  2. Thanks Shah! it's just. So. Hard! to wait!!!!

  3. Wishing you all the best with your to do list. I'm happy to help with getting the word out when you need it. Just let me know. And I so have to try that series, because I've been seeing it everywhere.

    1. Thanks, Tia, especially with spreading the word about the releases. Much appreciated. Also, yes you should check out her series- it's called the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout. I've never heard a bad thing about it.
