“The Love Bird is 100% faithful to his mate, as long as they are locked together in the same cage.” Will Cuppy.

…and exhausted. I have so much I need to jump on and the thought is overwhelming. So, I’ve begun a list of lists. My priority should be working hard on the book I’ve promised to turn in in Feb. But I have other obligations. When I make a commitment, I must see it through or I feel like not only have I let the person who I committed to down, but myself as well. I’m not a flake and could not live with that character flaw. So, I have two answers now for every request. It’s a simple yes or no. I had to turn down judging a contest I’ve judged for 3 straight years. I felt horrible saying no. But if I agreed, I’d ultimately let someone else down, least of myself. I need to write, and saying yes isn’t conducive to me getting my daily page count down.
So, with this blog post and making a few comments on the Murder She Writes blog, I need to keep my ass in the chair, do some long over due critting, put together a lesson plan for a workshop I’m doing next week (for Lori Devoti’s plotting loop, more info on that tomorrow) and somewhere I have to squeeze in writing Reese and Francesca’s story.
So much for vacations. Playing catch up sucks the big one.
Write on and I’ll chat with y’all tomorrow.

    Get on it, GF! You’ll do just fine. :cool2:

  2. Kristi

    Catching up is tough, but you’ll get it done.. and don’t worry about the yes-and-no-only answers. They’ll save you from :drowning:

  3. Karin

    :drowning: ain’t that the truth.

  4. Edie Ramer

    You’ll squeeze it all in, Karin. I’m looking forward to your class. I’m hoping to learn something. :mickeymouse:
