No Rest for the Weary!

I just emailed revisions for My Dangerous Pleasure. Woot!!!!

Now I have to get cracking on The Next Historical. Blogging may be intermittent while I try to NaNoWriMo the book. If you’re participating, buddy me! I’m cjewel and I’m already behind. Except yesterday I wrote 1900 words in the revisions so I may just claim that.

Anyhow, how’s everyone? Whatcha working on, doing that’s interesting etc?

My son and I are going to NYC for a week on Friday. Should be interesting to make word count and do fun stuff, but then I won’t have to be at the day job.

I’m reading a mystery/thriller that I’m not sure I can finish. It’s getting harder and harder to suspend disbelief in re the characters. There’s a female character who is made of so many stereotypes and cliches that I think my brain might explode. I’m fascinated, though, by the number of cliche things she can say, do and think. It’s bad when you can predict action, dialogue and thought for any character. Alas.
