Good grief this past month has been crazy busy! I knew it would be a bit hectic both trying to learn the Mary Kay ropes and working through the Pitches and Blurbs workshop, but right at that same time things got really busy at the day job as well. I had some long days, and the days that weren’t long were stressful, so I’ve been running on empty pretty much all month. Holiday gatherings didn’t help time matters either.
I’m finally starting to catch up on all the little things I’ve let fall to the wayside (you know, like paying bills!) I had to step away from a collaboration I’d been planning to work on because I knew I wouldn’t be able to devote the proper energy to it, or get scenes written in a timely manner. It’s a bummer because I really liked the character I was going to be writing, but it’s best for all parties involved.
In other news, the cover for Divided is coming along nicely. I received an initial design for it this morning, and WOW does it look amazing! I can’t wait to see the finished product. Though I won’t get that until I finish the workshop, and have a solid blurb to put on the back cover (yes, I will be publishing Divided in print as well as eBook format.) So that’s one less thing to worry about in my long list of things that must be done before I can publish. I also think I’ll use some of my xmas money to buy a block of IBSNs so I can check that off the list. Then I’ll just have to figure out how to format for all the different versions. I’m really excited to get this out to you, then move on to writing the sequel.
2013 is going to be a busy year for me. I’ve already asked John to be patient if I’m not home as much as we’d like, or holed up in my office when I am home. I have big dreams, and they’re going to take a lot of hard work, but I know I can make them happen if I don’t give up.
What do you have planned for 2013?
