Right. So I haven't really been writing lately. The gym (my fledgling business) has been an absolute nightmare lately, with roof leaks, floods, and 71 hours of work this week-- why the hell did I chose to coach summer camps? Honestly, the only thing I have written was a blurb for yesterday's Harlequin Intrigue Pitch Contest.

I went into the contest nervous. The last time I spent hours honing that 100 words and got a request for a synopsis. Sadly, it didn't go any further than that. This time I didn't spend nearly as much time on my pitch (with everything else I have going on), so I didn't expect much. I figured I'd go in paste my pitch get told no thanks and leave.

This time was very different. This time I pitched to Allison Lyons and she asked me loads of questions. And I made an ass of myself. She asked me what Intrigue authors I read and although I meant BJ Daniels, I said BJ Thomas. As in the singer from the 70's. I was nervous. ;-)

She asked for a partial! I am delighted with that, but I'm no where near ready. I have the chapters written, but I need to polish them (they are very rough) and I haven't even started the synopsis. I hate writing synopses.

So here I am, sat at summer camp trying to keep a six year old and a seven year old from killing each other (they are NOT getting along) and all I really want to do is write. I can not wait until 9pm. Then my last 14 hour day-- for this week at least-- will be over. I am going to try to sneak in a little writing time in a minute.

Gotta go!
