Feeling Good...

So, I can't believe it, but I've actually written 50 pages since Monday. That's a record for me. Sure, I need to revise... But I've actually managed to push through and write until I've finished the first 3 chapters of this new story about which I'm soooo ecstatic.

This will give time to delve into a little more research as well. Whew.

And then, of course, there's the synopsis. :-)

Oh, and here I go sending you to another blog again...

BUT in case you haven't already read Barbara Vey's Publisher's Weekly Blog, "Beyond Her Book," from last Thursday (July 31st), you'll find a photo with a group of OCC/RWA members--including me! And we're right above Nora's shoes. Which sounds just about right, IMHO.

The photo above the OCC one was taken at the Romance Bandits Bash, which was a fabulous party thrown by the Romance Bandits blogging team. One of my friends, Kate Carlisle, is a Bandita and was so cool as to invite a group of us to this bash. I loved meeting these women after reading their blog for the past year or so! And I was standing on the other side of the camera when Barbara Vey took that photo. That's a cute picture of them all, isn't it? They're a fun group. I even had the opportunity to try Tim Tams for the first time because a couple of Banditas flew in from Australia for the conference and passed the cookie tray around the party. Awesome! (Apparently, a group of 30 flew in from Australia; that's quite a flight!)

Hope you all are doing well! It's back to my story for me. I'm trying desperately not to pick up one of the many books that I brought home from conference...desperately. If I do, then I won't be able to write. And I need to write.

How about you? Are you working on a story, poem, song or article?
