A Prepublished Novel in the Process of Revisions and Rewrites

Hello?  Is there anyone out there?  Just nod if you can hear me...

LOL Well, it seems I have disappeared yet again.  Ugh! I have been so busy that I find it hard to manage all my projects again of late.  Looks like I may have to brush up on my time management skills.

Valentine's Day has come and gone, my 27th wedding anniversary celebrated with a quiet dinner at home. We had planned on going out but decided we'd rather just relax and enjoy in the cozy comfort of our home.

Two months have come and gone of the new year, and I really haven't accomplished a whole lot of writing but I have accomplished some really big things.  Mostly on a personal level. Some in other aspects of my career.  My point? 

Well, though sometimes we don't have anything to really flaunt or visibly put out for all to see, like a new book accepted for publication, or a release coming up, a booksigning, etc. it doesn't mean the things that go on behind the scenes aren't just as important.  All the planning, organizing, reorganizing, scheming, stolen minutes to jot down new ideas, maybe toss out bits of a new story.  All these things essentially will fall together into something bigger and productive.  

That's where I've been.  I write a little bit, add something to this work in process and brainstorm on that WIP, jot down some new idea and maybe toss out a few thousand words of a new story.  Whatever disjointed direction I go, I rejoice that my imagination is alive.  My muse determined.  The next story that much closer.

Gotta get back to work.  Be back soon.  Gotta get the Author's Spotlight back on line.  I've got some wonderful authors lined up in the next couple of months and I've got quite a collection of disjointed and partial story ideas lying about.



  1. Hi D~
    I seem to be stuck in the same wind tunnel as you. Ideas whip around in my head, and just as fast are blown out to sea. Organization has taken a long and windy journey to nowhere.
    Wishing someone would knock some sense into me to get me back on track. Rather surprised no one's stepped up to the batter's box to do just that :)
    You're right, there's so much behind the scenes that people don't realize until they jump in. I've spent the morning updating pages I forgot I had. Duh!
    Anyway, congrats on 27 years of marriage. You should be elated. That's quite the accomplishment.
    Ok, in saying all this I need to remove my carcass from this chair, brush off some dust and do something. Just what remains to be seen. Hope your week goes smoothly.

  2. 27 Years... congrats to Dayana and Mr. Dayana. That is more important than anything ever. Marriage is hard work. I don't care what anyone says. lol

  3. Happy Anniversary, Dayana. Sorry the message is so late, but once again, the days as well as the nights are getting away from me.

    I seriously feel as if I'm playing catch-up with just about everything right now. Of course, another snow storm doesn't help. My guess is that it'll take a while getting used to a new routine. I'm finding brief moments to read instead of write. Not too happy with that, by the way. I think my muse doesn't like the white stuff outside my window anymore. How soon is spring??

  4. Wow 27 years girl! We just had our 34th on the 27th.
    And still counting!
    Happy Anniversary to you and your DH!
