Because, yeah, we just don’t get enough sports!
We’ll probably freeze up there. Okay, maybe “freeze” is overkill. Still, with a high in the 50s when we enjoyed 80 degree weather yesterday, it will certainly feel like freezing. I’ll have to make sure to pack some blankets (as well as our passports—can’t forget those either!).
Writing Update: While I managed to reach my daily writing goal of 2000 words once this week (and yes, I jumped for joy at that), I’m well short of my weekly goal. Still, 5000+ words going into today isn’t too shabby. And I’ve started the pre-edit on Blind Temptation. What is pre-edit you ask? Pretty much removing filler/weak/telling words. It’s kind of nice to have that to fall back on when the writing stops (basically, when my brain says “Wait, I have to figure out what comes next.”). And let me tell you, I want this puppy clean. The cleaner it is, the less I’ll have to pay for an editor. And yes, I’m getting an editor. Won’t self-publish without one.
Convention News: I registered for the Romantic Times Convention (held May 12-17 in
this week. Why am I going? Because my friend Jan bugged me to. This is what
happened when I told her about this convention (and she just LOVED going to
Lori Foster’s event). Oh well, it’s not like I don’t enjoy going. At least I
have someone to help pay for the trip and room. Dallas, TX
Something I didn’t do at the last RT Convention I will do at the next one: Make some appointments with agents (pitching my book, “Alien Desires”—which means I gotta clean that one up, too). Just curious if they could help my career. Certainly doesn’t hurt to talk to them, right?
Well… I’m looking forward to getting some reading done on the drive up north (oh, and the drive home, too). The Nook will certainly come in handy tonight, since it has a light (and that’s about the ONLY time you’ll hear me say something nice about an e-reader). What are you looking forward to this weekend? Hope it’s good!
