Monday night blues

I hate it when my favorite Monday night shows are repeats.

I'm a big fan of How I Met Your Mother, Two Broke Girls and Mike and Molly. [You can keep Two and a Half Men, thanks - not much improved with Ashton Kutcher, sorry to say].

Since there's nothing to watch between 8:00 and 10:00, I'm up in my office writing - well, so far I've tweeted and posted to my blogs. My WIP is open and ready to go and I'm procrastinating because...if I don't get my procrastinating out of the way, I can't concentrate. LOL.

Okay, I'm really going to write now.

It's so exciting!

To have Twitter followers! I hope I can come up with interesting tweets. I like the idea of just typing a line or two about something and not having to agonize over paragraph after paragraph like a blog post.

I could get used to this bullet-style of communicating.

In the mean time, I'm closing in on the end of novella #3 - first draft. It's a drafty draft, but it's coming along. I can't wait to edit. The decision now is, do I edit the first three, then move on, or wait until I've finished one round for the whole series?

I'm battling a vicious head cold right now, so my decision making skills are suspect. The only thing that really seems like a good idea right now is a nap.

It's already March... my world. I'm currently working on the ROUGH ROUGH draft of the third novella in my series and it's March for my characters. I have to keep reminding myself it's still only January in the real world.

I discovered today there's a big differencen between 'writing' and putting words on paper [well, virtual paper]. At the moment I'm doing the latter. I'm putting down scenes, but there's no finesse there right now. That's okay, because I'm better at rewriting than I am at writing, so I'm hopeful that the second and third passes through this story will bring out the nuances I want. Right now, I'm only interested in PLOT, PLOT, PLOT. All the pieces need to fit together before I can polish them up.

Hello world!

Pardon the lame post title. I needed something to kick off this blog. It's still under construction at the moment while I prepare for the debut of my novella series coming in 2013. [More about that later] In the mean time, I'm an author of contemporary romance, hoping to bring you stories that will draw you in and entertain you.

I'm currently in the process of working on my series, constructing my blog and website and learning how to tweet.

Stop back periodically for updates throughout 2012 and the launch of my series in January of 2013.
