Wow! It's Saturday Already!!!

Can summer get any busier? I dash from one sporting event--football or karate practice--to guitar lessons. I'm rushing around so much, I cannot keep up with the days. And I had a useless argument with my almost 13 year old...that today was not Saturday. I said it was Friday, he reminded--insisted--today was Saturday. *sigh* I guess you know who won that argument. ;-)

Summer is too busy and we have only about 4 weeks left before school starts back in my neck of the woods. Last weekend we spent a good portion of it painting our home. It's still not complete, but good progress has been made. I hope everyone here had a fabulous 4th of July?

I've been writing on Where the Road to Hell Begins, Part One - Pandora's Box. Too long of a title, right? LOL These characters are all sorts of crazy talkative and each time I write, I'm tapping out 3,000 plus words. I can't sleep at night for all the chatter they are doing. It's fabulous when a book writes itself this easily, but a few moments of peace might not be uncalled for. I've almost hit 60,000 words into the story with 8 mapped out chapters left to write, so it's almost complete. Woohoo!! But the characters are already throwing dialogue and scenes at me for book 2!!! *facepalm* I told ya, crazy talkative. I've never had a book write itself so easily, without any quirks or glitches somewhere along the way, but this's easy breezy and I'm loving it...even if I do feel a tad psychotic at times with all the mental chatter. I'm super excited about this project and I find I'm more worried about how readers will receive it than I have been about any other story. Odd, huh?

I've not managed to take my book, A Kiss of Wytchblood, and resubmit it to another publisher. But, I've been thinking maybe it needs a name what, I don't know. LOL But, I've been thinking the current title doesn't have enough pizzazz. Am I over thinking this? Any thoughts or suggestions from the peanut gallery?

I received a nasty review on my current book, Elfin Blood. Made me wonder why the person even read the book if she/he disliked it that much and he/she missed the point of the book, which was glaringly obvious in his/her review. But one bad review compared to a handful of wonderful, I won't worry about it. As a writer, you can't or I'd never write another word. Even the big authors get bad reviews and not everyone can like what I write. Be a perfect world if they did. It would be an even better perfect world if all my books were smash hit movies! LOL Hey, dreams are free! ;-)

Thought for the Day
: Somewhere along the journey of my life, I've been told men are more visual than women. I wonder if this is true because I love a good visual aid.

What emotions do you experience when you look at this photo? For me, it's something along the lines of hot and raw passion you feel the next morning....kind of like a delightful memory, but one you can deliciously feel. You know what I'm talking about, right? =D
