It’s fess up Friday!
Okay, so maybe it isn’t for the rest of the world, but it is for me.
You see, back in January, when I had planned out every detail of my writing for the year, I didn’t take into account I’d come down with shingles a few days later and be thrown for a loop for the next six weeks.
By the time March arrived, I was far off schedule and losing ground fast.
I also didn’t take into account planning my niece’s wedding or co-chairing a conference when I made all those grandiose plans.
In July, as a frantically started writing holiday stories, it became abundantly clear that I was not going to be able to get to all the projects I’d originally intended. So I had to set aside a holiday book I really, really wanted to write. There’s always next year, right?
Now, I’m beyond frantic and entering whatever stage comes after that to finish a novel this month because I promised it would come out at the end of December.
As of this morning, I’ve written a whopping 238 words (insert huge sigh).
I basically have ten days to finish this book and I WILL make it happen.
However, to do that, I will be hibernating in my writing cave for a while. I’ll try to give daily word count updates on Facebook, so I’m asking you all to keep me accountable! If I don’t post a word count, ask me where it’s at. And if I don’t have at least 1,000 words written, tell me to get back at it!
Oh, and I bet you’d like to know what I’m working on… it’s Ben Morgan’s story – book six in the Grass Valley Cowboys series.
And I have a title:
The Cowboy’s Last Goodbye
What do you think? Do you like that?
No cover yet, but stay tuned.
And if I can’t get the book through the editing process in time, you won’t throw rocks at me if the story doesn’t release until January, will you?
Wishing you all a fun, fabulous weekend!
I’ll be in my cave – writing.
