CRITIQUING PROJECTS: I’m currently in the middle of critiquing one MG story (although I’ve never written or critiqued anything MG before:) and I have one regency short story I’m looking forward to critiquing before I’ll be open to taking on new projects from my fellow bloggers.
WRITING: After KISSING FOR COFFEE’s overhaul, I’m leaving that manuscript alone for awhile. I’m currently outlining a new YA Romantic Comedy that I hope to begin writing before this two week vacation is over. I’m also hoping to revamp FOSSEGRIM and start on the sequel (of a trilogy) – all designated for ebook publication at some point in the whenever-I-get-to-it.
REAL LIFE: As I’ve mentioned, the kiddies and I are on ‘vacation’ for two weeks and the hubs has Wednesdays and Thursdays off. Which pretty much means my two weeks of indentured servitude has begun. It would seem my husband and children are incapable of happiness without my constant presence and input. I should be grateful, I suppose. But instead of spending the day lounging around and drinking coffee while basking in writerly bliss- I’ve now got three kids and one husband to keep occupied less they drive me up a wall. Which brings me to my next point:
BLOGGING: I will be sticking to my regular Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule despite the time constraints of the next two weeks and hopefully be able to dedicate an afternoon or two to visiting and commenting all the blogs I miss so much. But again, I’m feeling much the blogging bum under the bridge.
How are all of you doing? What are your querying/writing/real life/ blogging stats?
