Still in the game...

Friday, 1 February 2013

Well, I wasn't one of the four picked in Donna Alward's pitch contest. I never really expected I would be. I mean she had 103 pitches. I only entered in the hope of getting a little feedback and she has promised individual feedback for each of us, so I am anxiously awaiting that. That is enough of a prize after receiving my first form rejection last month.

Just a few minutes ago I mapped out a schedule for finishing Valentine Bride, so I'm pressing ahead nonetheless. If I can keep myself motivated and keep life from getting in the way (always a problem for me) I should be able to finish it by the end of February. Then I'm going to take a couple of weeks to edit it before sending it out. And start on the next one!

Late last year I worked out a schedule which would presumably produce four books a year (my goal and a trait highly desired by publishers). The head start I have on VB means that even thought I have only just started back on it, I can still make that schedule if I work hard enough. I'm going to give it my best. I honestly have no idea what the next few weeks will be like now that my maternity leave is over. I officially go back to work next Thursday. :-(

So this Friday, rather than have fun I have worked myself silly. I have spent the morning working on cheer stuff. I need to make a part time wage out of it now, so today I ordered 5000 leaflets, made 73 phone calls, and sent 48 emails. Seriously. But tonight is family movie night which means a take away, so no cooking, and once the kids are in bed I plan to get writing!

Have a great weekend everyone!
