This past weekend I wrote and scheduled 11 blogs, four newspaper columns, and two puppies.about.com articles (6 more to do). Why am I front-loading February? Because this is the month I am determined to finish the draft of HIDE AND SEEK, the sequel to my debut thriller.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been writing nonfiction so long, I can multi-task…I mean, multi-write 🙂 and never miss a beat. But with the fiction, I need as few distractions as possible. I can’t even play music, or I get caught up bee-bopping to the beat and singing along. So this month if I’m not quite so Johnny-on-the-spot to answer email or the phone, please cut me some slack. I may have shut off email (GASP!) or unplugged the phone. I promise, it’ll be worth it. I can’t wait to share with y’all the next installment of September and Shadow’s story, it’s already taking my breath away!
Meanwhile, Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. You won’t want to miss the videos of the trained bird, dog-petting tips and pet talk kid!
