A Rare Thing

I got today off from work, which is rare during the week. I'm finding the perks of this new job faaaar outway the added commute and toll road fees. So far today I've taken two kids to the doctor for annual physicals (yeah very late, I know), made lunch for me and one kid who stayed home sick (damn allergies), read part of a book, and am updating my poorly neglected blog. I plan to do a final read through of the manuscript I finished yesterday so I can send it to my EC editor. This book is supposed to be a sequel to Eroitc Images, though they will be stand alones as well. 

After that, if there's daylight left I just might go for a walk. It's wonderfully cool outside and Houston's high humidity is a little less today. So far, I'm loving this rare day off!

Here I Am!

My wonderful, faithful readers, I owe you an apolgy for being MIA the past few months. I've played a little on FB and Twitter, but not nearly the norm of the past couple of years. 

I've changed jobs twice since July and rearranging my schedule has been a bit hectic. My daughters and I just (this morning) finished the JDRF Walk for a Cure, which has taken up a lot of my time as well. To those of you who donated to our team, THANK YOU! We sincerely appreciate it. I'll probably start planning for next year's walk in late spring so keep it in mind if you'd like to join us.

Next up: NaNo! November 1st marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month. Me, along with thousands of other masochists, attempt to write a 50,000 word novel within thirty days. It's funny, exhausting, eye-opening, and frustrating all at the same time. You should join in!

Along with NaNo, November marks my return to Allen, TX for Readers n'Ritas. This year one of my all-time favorite authors will be there, Sherrilyn Kenyon! I've had the honor of meeting her twice before but still look forward to seeing her again.

So, as you can see there's never a dull moment in my house. NaNo will also be my return to a regular writing schedule. After all, who needs sleep, right?
