Monday, Monday...




Ahh, poor Monday. Nobody ever likes Mondays.

You're special, though, because on this particular Monday you get two posts from me! That's right. I've given you the super short version of our winners from our Spring Into Reading Give Away and now that the April A-Z challenge has been wrapped up, I can get back to writing stuff.

Most of you know I've been a busy girl this last week. I've been "working" but not on my writing. Soon as things slow down, I'll be back to revising. I'm going to give myself a goal here. I tend to work better under pressure. Now, I know it isn't your job to crack the whip over me to write, but every so often you can pack my bags for a Guilt Trip and ask me how I'm doing if I don't give a report.

So here's my plan... Legend of Black Rose stands at 55,600 words. Of that I have about11,991 revised. I'll put a little word count thing-a-ma-jig over on my sidebar. If that progress doesn't move, feel free to flog me. Ahem. No, not really. Ow?


My next project after that will be to finish Crowning Absolution. The current word count is 81,845 with a goal of 100,000 because it is going to be broken down possibly into three books. We'll see. Once C. A. is complete, I can begin the revising process on that as well. And I have absolutely NO idea of where to start on that query. ::Sigh::

To give myself some time to finish up my current tasks, I'll begin next Monday. May 17, 2010. Deal? Deal.

Deal! You can do it, I believe in you!

There's a Murder By Death song called "Until Morale Improves, the Beatings Will Continue"... you should check it out. Here's the Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OPK5PfunNQ I bet you would really like it; it's one of my favorite MBD songs!

I knew I could count on you two. And B. that was an awesome video! And song. I've heard of MBD, just never listened to them. I think I may have found more music to add to my iPod. :D

We'll hold you accountable! I'm sure now that you've given us permission to flog you it won't be necessary!

Sounds like you're absolutely headed in the right direction! Good luck, and I'm happy to poke, prod and give shout outs for spankings when necessary (love both your cartoons!)
