Sinful AKA The Next Historical, is done. Emailed to my editor.
Tomorrow I’m going to get a pedicure and a massage.
I will resume more regular blogging soon.
One of that Damned Mob Of Scribbling Women.
Sinful is pretty much done.
I rewrote my last chapter, finished the major tweaks on the back half and now all that’s left is some critique stuff, and deletion of very, pretty, words ending in ly, ing and the like and any last minute panicking that may come up between now and Sunday evening.

Yup. Down to the Wire. But the fork will be out soon. Standby for that. There will be a wild celebration after that. Which is, admittedly, not quite yet.
In the meantime three pictures I took today when I was out with the camera and said, gee, I wonder what that button does? Oh.
I actually kind of hate this flower for some reason, even though it’s pretty. Shrug. It’s cute. And I don’t like it.
Things are going reasonably well. Making progress. It occurs to me I haven’t even posted chapter one. I’ll have to do that. Later.
Meanwhile, more pictures to entertain you. This one is from last month:
Still writing, freaking writing.
Also, The Next Historical will, I believe, officially be titled Sinful but that’s not official yet. It is, however, more official than The Next Historical.
Here’s another pic to look at while I’m busy:
Obviously, I have much more practice in order with respect to raindrops on roses. But still. It’s pretty.
Back to work.
Hi. Still writing. There is hope for this.
Here’s a picture I took for you to admire or whatever while I’m busy.
I can see already the blogger pic doesn’t show the awesomeness of my new macro lens.
So here is a link to the photo on Flickr so you can check out the dewdrops just balancing there on the rose petals.
Back to work.
Just a quick update. The Next Historical is going along. I’ve reached a part where I need to do some fixes of chronology and/or geography or risk a ripping massive hole in the time-space continuum. I’m not quite sure what to do, but suspect a very simple solution is out there, just out of reach and if I push too hard, it will blow up. But if I don’t push hard enough, well, there goes the universe! You see my dilemma.
No. I am NOT procrastinating. I think I need to make cinnamon rolls today. Back to saving the world!
Oh. I think I thought of the solution. And the crowd goes wild!! Yes, it was simple. I’m still going to make cinnamon rolls though.
The Next Historical which is going to need a title pretty darn soon, is inching along. Today I deleted a fair amount but managed to break 75K anyway. Yay for Carolyn! I still have to write the last chapter, but I’m pretty sure what that will be. I think. It’s slotted for October 2009, by the way, pushed up from November. No pressure! Anyway, I will get something out to readers this weekend. ::shrug:: I’m going to have to take a week off from work the week prior to the due date, so here’s praying I can get the time off. Will ask tomorrow.
Title ideas gladly accepted. Right now I’m calling it Ransomed cuz the hero at one point is going to pay one for the heroine. But the other day I thought of something better and then yesterday I forgot it.
If the post options work correctly this entry will post 11/21 at 1:00pm Pacific, at which time I will very likely be sitting in my car working on the dang book.
Friday, I am going to see Twilight. Sorry. But that’s a must do, figured into my deadline calculations. I’ll get two hours in the car on Saturday because Soccer Boy has a scrimmage. Hopefully it’s not too cold. And then after that, more ignoring of laundry, kitchen child family dog and everything else too. I’d ignore the cats too, but they sit on my lap and I pet them from time to time.
Wish me luck.
Be prepared for Blog Silence.
