Revised Release Date

Got a note from my editor over at Samhain today. My release date has been pushed back and is now July 25. That’s pretty much set in stone and shouldn’t change again.

I feel absolutely lost – I forgot my thumb drive today. It’s like leaving the house without my watch or rings. I feel naked without it. I was going to send in my book blurb and art forms today but – alas – they are on the thumb drive and I cannot. So today I will be sitting here going quite stir crazy.
:wall:

I’ve been thinking a lot about the year lately – the end of the year always depresses me. Probably because I look back and see all the things I should have done and didn’t. And all the things I wanted to do and couldn’t. I’m trying to refocus that negative energy into something more positive. Like instead of thinking what I didn’t do, think about what I could do next year.

There’s something about the clicking of the yearly dial that bothers me, though. I suppose it’s a reminder I’m not getting any younger, that my son is growing up. Makes me feel like time is running out and I’ll never get to do any of those things on The List. (Doesn’t everyone have A List?)

I’ll be posting a sort of “year in review” later in the week, but now I’m thinking about next year and the positive goals I want to set. I’m going to commit myself to finishing at least two manuscripts – including the rewrite on MAGIC. I keep telling myself to get it done already. So I need to focus and just do it. That’s my biggest writing project. I’d like to get it done and submit it to Samhain next year. I’m giving myself a deadline of June 30. That gives me six months to finish it. I’ll do more about goals with that year in review post.

Anyway – I’m dying for new clothes. I’m so sick of everything in my closet. I ordered a new outfit from Victoria’s Secret but that won’t be here for a few more weeks. (I love them, but they are SO SLOW when it comes to packaging and shipping.)

Okay that’s it for me. Time to get back to work.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
