Sunday Stuff

The challenge is going well. I wrote 831 words yesterday on two manuscripts. I also wrote two articles for my Austin RWA newsletter, which I did not include in my word count for the day. I'll share them with you when they go into the newsletter.

I've got grading to do today, but I'll be doing that while I'm watching football. Then I'll go back to my manuscripts. I've already done my 100 words for today, but I don't want to stop.

Have a gander at my friend Carol Ericson's new cover. Her debut Harlequin Intrigue comes out in December. I can't wait!

On Tuesday at our monthly meeting, my Austin RWA buddies Michelle McGinnis and Heather Foeh are giving a talk on creating a web presence. I'm so excited about this! I'll take good notes and share with you.

Then next weekend is our Austin RWA retreat. Heather and I are going to brainstorm our new manuscripts. Yes, I'll be playing around with both the suspense, DAD, and the next Scottish short contemporary, HHC. I must confess, the Scottish story is winning out during this challenge and may very well be the next manuscript I focus on writing. (Well, once the revisions are done for Book 1 and Book 2 of the series!) Maybe I just need to write a suspense scene every once in a while to keep my creative juices flowing.

I've got another contest announcing finalists tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for TCAFS and me!

Elisabeth, it feels awesome! And I love having two stories to work on so the minute I'm blocked with one, I pick up with the other.

Kelly said...

No phone call, Kelly. :( But that's okay. I can't final in them all.

Teri, you have to wait until all your crazy photo shoots, hair appointments convention and articles are done. Hey, didn't you just recently come back from a retreat with the hubby????
