In Labor

Working on this holiday. I have a new book due by October 1 and I still have about 125 pages to write and then 250 to get feedback on and revise into something lucid and exciting and page-turning. Insane, eh? Much.

Book launch of CIRCLE OF SECRETS is October 1 and I'm only doing about a million various things for the launch . . . all of them are fun, but I think I bite off more than I can actually chew, swallow and digest!

Which reminds me . . . must make chocolate chip cookies to be able to coherently write . . .

I thought this quote was hilarious:

"There are three rules to writing a novel and nobody knows what they are."

William Somerset Maugham

Good luck with everything on your plate right now. Good grief!

Love the Maugham quote. Hopefully you won't have to make the chocolate chip cookies.

Good luck with all you have to do.

That's an excellent quote. Doesn't stop people from writing blog posts and whole books to tell us, does it?

Great quote!

Good luck on getting everything done. Don't forget to breathe.

Hi girls! Thanks for the comments.

I'm breathing, too - maybe gasping, going crazy, not sleeping, having chest pains, but I'm breathing! LOL!

And, Donna, I have NOT made any cookies. Haven't had time. Which also means I ain't gettin' much writing done either. Boohoo! ;-)

If I were there I would make you cookies! Good Luck! Can't wait to read your new book!
