They try, though. My cats constantly tromp back and forth across my keyboard, but nothing they come up with is worth saving. Not even with extensive, aggressive editing.
Some days I can’t write, either, no matter how much coffee I drink or Carr’s Whole Wheat Crackers I stuff in my face. Those are the ones that are crumbly and a little sweet. I can’t stop eating those.
The first Cable Bend book is moving along. I’m about two chapters away from a complete first draft. I keep coming up with new ideas as I’m writing – enough to keep me in this little town until 2017 so far.
I’m not really focusing today. I’m giving serious thought to just lying on the sofa binge watching Archer or clearing out the DVR. Some days you just gotta go with the flow.
My home office is in the north-east corner of the house with four big windows. I get beautiful light throughout the day, and right now the fruit trees outside are going nuts. We have six citrus trees and the aroma is amazing through the open windows. As is the pollen. The cats are beside themselves watching the birds and squirrels.
My husband also works from home, but uses the big dining table that overlooks the street. Yep, I got the nicer setup. I am not going to feel bad about it!
I am awaiting the proof copy of the paperback edition of Just That Easy. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to do a print edition, but then I decided to go for it. Why not? Just That Easy has been on the Amazon Top 10 Gay Romance list for about a week – I’m having trouble believing that’s real, and ever so grateful for all the readers who have downloaded it and left kind words for the book. I wrote it to be a feel-good story for an afternoon at the beach or lazing in a hammock, and it looks like I hit the right note there, so I couldn’t be more pleased.
Cable’s Bend Book 1 is coming along – I’m up to about 23,000 words as of today, and shooting for 60,000. I’m excited about this one, and really pleased with how it’s coming together. I love my characters, and am enjoying the things I’ve been discovering about them as we get to know each other. I’m shooting for an early June release, but don’t hold me to it!
