My life has changed since I last posted on here in a major way. My days used to consist of going to my day job, coming home playing on the computer, eating dinner and either reading or writing. Now, they consist of washing bottles, changing diapers, feeding little miss and tummy time.
I'm someone's mother. I'm also a wife, daughter, author, daughter in law, friend etc...
I can't believe that I go back to work next week. I've got a doctor's appointment on Monday and then my maternity leave is over and it's back to the daily grind :( I'm not looking forward to leaving my little one every morning for 8 hours although she'll be fine with her pappy until I come home.
Im also on deadline. Edits for book #2, Stealing Cynderella will arrive on the 3rd, the same day that I go back to work, so I'll get to juggle writing along with work and being a mommy, but it shouldn't be too hard until she actually gets mobile. I also have ideas for book 3,4, &5 in separate files on my computer and just have to choose which idea to work on next. Hmmm....
But, I almost wonder if Ezra isn't A, but part of the A team like Toby and Mona were. But, if he really is A what is that going to do for the Aria/ Ezra relationship? After 4 seasons this show still keeps me guessing, unlike the novels.
I think that Sara Shepard is just writing more PLL novels for the $. The first 8 were great, but since then they've gone down hill in a major way. I just read Ali's prequel and it just told me everything that I already knew, so to me it was pointless, unless she was trying to get new readers interested in the book series.
Just like The Lying Game, it was good at first, but I think she's just grasping at straws at this point with the books, giving us hope that we will figure out who killed Sutton only to be let down.... again. And, I don't even know if the television show is even on anymore. But, I've always been more of a PLL fan than LG anyway.

Right now I’m in the kitchen eating veggie pizza and editing instead of in the living room with everyone else.I’m trying to re-submit an older novel to my publisher, so right now I think editing is more important than sitting around watching Walking Dead .Heather Curley would probably disagree though. LOL! I’m up to Chapter 4 of 42 chapters, but I’m hoping that I will be able to submit it to my publisher by July * crosses fingers*
But, the laptop is about to die, I hate the 2 hr battery life on this thing, so I need to go plug it in if I want to get anymore work done today :(
OMG! I just got a good idea for a new novel… how about a YA zombie novel, that would be lots of fun to write :)
6:35 : Get up and stumble around the bedroom getting ready for work, cursing my job/boss for making me work the early shift. There are days that I really hate my job, but I know that I need the paycheck.
6:46-6:50: Finally make it downstairs to get coffee and sit in front of the computer watching the Today show until it's time to leave for work. Usually, instead of writing, I usually catch up on emails, facebook, twitter and every other time waster there is out there.
7:30: leave for work.
8:00-4:00 : I'm at work.
4:30ish : Home from work. The first thing that I usually do is take a nice warm shower, get back in my pjs and sit down with either my Kindle, book or the computer.
5:30-6:ish Some nights my mother in law makes dinner, but others are fend for yourself, so I get up and get food when my stomach grumbles.
8:00 : Depending on the day watch whatever is on the TV, wither it's something I want to watch or NETFLIX. My in laws are currently working on the first season of Angel, but I'm not sure how I feel about that show, so usually I don't pay much attention to it. Instead, I've got the computer on my lap playing on FB or trying to write. I'm currently slowly, and I mean slowly getting the first draft of book # 2 written. Thank god I'm not on deadline!
10:00: Go upstairs and read for a bit.
11:00: Night, Night
It's edit time, ugh! Don't get me wrong, I love molding and shaping a manuscript into the final product, but the process is tedious at times. I have my binder, paper clips, notebook and pen and off I go. So, when my husband and I left Panera Bread, I had every intention of going home and digging into said edits, but we went to the bar for a few drinks instead.
I came home around 8 o'clock and sat down in the recliner, first chapter beside me, MS Word up and running and Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the background. I managed to get one page fixed and gave up for the night. I finished watching Buffy and went upstairs for some "grown up time". Afterwards, I read a bit of JD Robb's Delusion in Death before falling asleep. And, I had every intention of digging into the edits this morning before work, but instead I've been watching Greys Anatomy on the computer and reading.
I was soo excited and anxious to get these edits back and now I'm avoiding them like the plague. What's wrong with me? Well, I'm off to avoid them some more while drinking now, cold coffee and hopefully finishing Delusion in Death.
Before I stumbled on my publisher, I thought that the only “tour” that authors went on was a book “tour. That’s not true. With E-books changing the world of publishing, there are now blog “tours” for authors. I scheduled mine with Reading Addiction Virtual Blog Tours
