A New Year

Happy 2012, everyone.

My resolution was going to be something along the lines of not waiting until the last minute.

I think it’s a record for broken resolutions.

Nevertheless, I wish you the best and happiest 2012!

Bright and Shiny!

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Happy New Year to everyone!

It’s a bright and shiny start to the year. Any day you can start off by sleeping in is a win in my book. I didn’t get myself out of bed until 10:30. Then I had lemon meringue pie for breakfast (home made by yours truly!) AND Darjeeling tea my brother brought from India.

Now that’s a good breakfast.

Even better, it’s Friday so I have a weekend in front of me with total denial about the day job locked in for an extra day. GRIN!!

I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions because they’re always the same, I just roll them over from the previous year. I’m on a 10 year roll. Heh.

I ended up taking a mini-break from writing from shortly before Christmas to now, and I’m must say I’m feeling refreshed and ready to go. I’ve been dreaming about writing, though, which in interesting. I have two big projects to get cracking on and well, yes. I am blogging instead of writing.

  • Revisions for My Beloved Assassin need to be done.
  • Final pass through Regency short story
  • Need to get going on The Next Paranormal
  • Must write up a different Historical proposal

So, yeah. Stuff to do in this bright and shiny year of 2010. How about you guys?

I’m on a list!

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Happy January 1, 2009 folks!

It’s been a lazy day of doing not so much actually. The highlight pretty much has to be the hot chocolate I had, which I made with extra chocolate stuff so it was especially yummy. I did a lot of tweaking and revising then went out and took some pictures. Made my son dinner, and yeah. That’s about it.Inside a pink bell shaped flower taken with my spiffy new macro lens

Then I discovered that My Wicked Enemy made The SciFi Guy’s list of Favorite Urban Fastasy/paranormal Debuts which is pretty awesome.

Tomorrow I have to go to work. Sigh.

Now I’m going to get to the end of this one particular chapter and then watch some Shakespeare Retold. Much Ado About Nothing and if I’m feeling frisky and it’s not too late, MacBeth.

Remains of the Year

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Somehow it got to be the very last day of 2008. And here I am, still ticking. A good thing, indeed. And all you get in this post is the remains of my thoughts.

Writing in 2008

All the hard writing work of 2007-2008 will be showing up in 2009. I’ll have 3 books out. Three!

February: Scandal
June: My Forbidden Desire
October: Indiscreet

That’s going to cost me a fortune in promotion and RITA entry fees. Yeah, I often wonder if I can afford to write novels. Apparently I am a writing fool since I will, whatever happens, keep writing.

Technology in 2008

Twitter-like birdTwitter gets my vote for the application that actually added value to my life. More than mySpace, more than Facebook, probably even more than email. I’ll have a separate post on my website about twitter in the new year.

iPhoneThe iPhone gets my vote for the gadget that blew me away. I heart my iPhone. It’s worth every dang penny it costs. I can check and reply to my email! I can twitter! I don’t need an eBook reader or an iPod (or mp3 player). A free book I downloaded (about how to read tea leaves) sparked a major plot thread in my October historical Indiscreet

I made the move from PC to Mac when I got an iMac. Technically that happened in late 2007, but the primary usage has been in 2008. I am now saving to replace my PC laptop which is old and getting clunky. I’ll get a Mac laptop.

Thoughts about 2009

  • I will be writing proposals. ::shudder::
  • I hope to write my Dark Elf book which is the book proposal my agent loved (before she was my agent)
  • February will see the release of Scandal which is the historical proposal that my agent (before she was my agent) said would have been an automatic rejection for her. This is the same book she read (after she was my agent and I rewrote it) and called a tour de force. Seriously.
  • A year of uncertainty and hope. That’s my take on 2009.

Have a safe and happy New Year everyone!
