Ah Monday. I thought I recognized you when you came in the door…

After the insanity that was last week’s GISHWHES, I’m back on the pony…mostly. Writing: The draft of WORK OF HUNTERS is with the editor, and I have the revisions letter for CLAWED (Gin & Tonic #4) on my desk. The revisions letter for SILVER ON THE ROAD is supposed to hit on Friday (more likely …

oh hey look’t that!

I’m featured today on The Talkative Writer!  Meanwhile, I’m wearing the editor hat from here until Saturday afternoon, at which point the work hats go off and the Sock Monkey hat goes on….

State of the Meerkat: Holiday Weekending

Short version: I spent one slightly rainy day and two very nice warm bright sunny days being Out! and Social! and Eating! (in some cases actually picnicking) and doing not a lick of work.

If ever I had vanity, I’ve traded it for coffee and an extra hour of sleep…

Ever wonder what a writer looks like at the end of a book* deadline? No makeup. No shower. Nowhere near enough sleep. All those things..tomorrow. For now, enough to say “done” and tomorrow let it be m’editor’s headache joy for a while. (*technically it was TWO books, but let’s just say a little under 200,000 words, a …
