Chit-chat

Sunday, January 13, 2008

I was exchanging emails with a writing buddy yesterday, I'm going to open up Raine & Winston's story (I'm 165 pages into) and see what needs doing. The Lost is going at a slow pace and while I still want to finish the damn manuscript this year, I'd also like to have a second contemporary romance to follow Felicity Stripped Bare sooner rather than later. *sigh* There's some structural problems with R&W, stuff that I know will cause peeps to throw the book against the wall if(when) it gets published. So that's on the agenda today, as well as painting my room, hanging some drapes and looking up some mortgage paperwork, and doing laundry, and.... *sigh*

Oh, almost forgot, when I went back to the furniture store to straightened out the mattress situation I found the perfect desk for the third bedroom (which I want to set up as a guest room/my office.) It's 'L' shaped but the two parts can be separted into 2 desks. It's glass and brush chrome and scaled to fit smaller spaces. I'm really looking forward to having a dedicated space for writing with no distractions around. Of course, that 3 bedroom has been functioning as a junkroom for the past 10 months, so I'll have to clear that room out before Saturday.

Good luck with the writing. I've got to yank my head out of my arse and get stuff done myself. I've been screwing around too much.

YAY on getting an office. Have fun cleaning out the junk. And don't let yourself use those things as a way to procrastinate on the actual writing. LOL

Tanya - "I've been screwing around too much."

Ditto. I've been going through a rough patch on several fronts for awhile now, and alternated between (trying) to push myself or screwing around when it came to the writing. :-P

Raine, huh?

Yup. I was looking for a name for my non-Puritan heroine and something about this name struck me as perfect....

Sash, I'm really looking forward to the office! I can go in there, shut the door and write. And it's right across the hall from my own bedroom.

Nope. Won't let it distract me. There's a couple of empty suitcases in there some construction stuff from the bathroom reno, and some clothing that still needs to be unpack and put away, but the junk quotient isn't that bad. I do want to paint the room though....
