Yesterday was a flat-out work day of negotiations, reading material, and pitching jobs. I’ve changed my early morning routine a bit — I’m writing outside on the deck, now, after I feed the cats. I take Tessa out, along with a notebook, pen, and coffee, and we spend the first one thousand words of the day outside. I’m not spending enough time actually WRITING, and that has to change.

Another trip to the libraries around here– returning books, taking out more books. I’m trying to refill the creative well. I feel like I’m spinning, and writing by rote instead of serving the stories well. It’s the time/deadline/money pressure.

Got the front mowed, and I hope to get the terraced back mowed today, squeaking in just after the rain. I’ve got a client meeting tonight, and two blog posts to write before the, along with a slew of short stories to read, and a short story deadline of my own to meet.

Billy Root’s got some news about HEX BREAKER, and the upcoming appearance schedule is over on A Biblio Paradise.

It looks like the ghostwriting gig will happen — although I’m not counting on anything until there’s a signed contract and a deposit. And an editor made an offer for me to do a paid blog gig. We’re sorting out the final details. My price fits her budget, and she likes my samples. So far, so good.

Excited about the potential new gigs, but don’t want to count my chickens before they’re hatched. And I’ve got fiction deadlines looming — have to reconfigure my day a bit to keep the balance with both.

Had a great session on the second book yesterday — just over 1300 words in the sprint.

I’ve been taking some garden photos — will have to upload them to the computer, so I can share them. The daylilies are exceptionally beautiful this year.

  1. I never count a chicken before it hatches, either. Right now though, I have a barnyard full of actual signed chickens. I’m like the one without her head, too — running to catch up! It’s glorious to have such a busy, lucrative June, but wow. All at once!
