This and that

» Posted on Feb 7, 2009 in Blog | Comments Off on This and that

January was an interesting month of trying to set a full-time writing schedule up for myself. You would think after being retired for a year I would already have that done. Not! Because I kept getting interrupted with teaching. I did two long term sub jobs for the school district I taught at for 22 years.

Now though, I want to write truly full-time, and I need a schedule to keep up with everything. Hence the schedule. Stories are screaming to come out, but I have to sit down and get them down on paper. Slowly a routine is falling into place and I know it doesn’t necessarily happen overnight.

In January I finished two proposals (2010 continuity book 3 and a Christmas novella) for the two Love Inspired Suspense books I recently sold and have gotten them to my editor. I also read my galleys on my July Love Inspired book and line edits on my November Love Inspired. Not to mention the eight books I have to read for the RITA contest. Eek! Did I mention I’m a slow reader? Thankfully I just finished the 6th one.

I was given an okay on the continuity story, so I’m going to finish writing it, then the novella. That will take me through April. That’s my plan, but you know how plans go. Life happens.
