Quote Du Jour:
Gloria: â€œYou get car sick, plane sick, train sick. You practically puke riding on the escalator at Bloomingdaleâ€™s!â€
Joan: â€œWellâ€¦ a lot of people get sick in department stores.â€

Very sad thing about the bombings in London. When will the terrorists go away? Keeping all those affected by the attacks in my thoughts.
I find it difficult to collect my thoughts this morning. I donâ€™t know why that is. My brain is just tired. Foggy. Like I have cobwebs in there for whatever reason.
It doesnâ€™t help that my sleep has been disturbed every morning at 4:30. Getting back to sleep only delays the inevitable. When my alarm goes off, it makes it doubly difficult to get up and get going.
Although, I have to admit I feel perkier today than I have all week. And for a short week, it sure has been a long one.
I need to write on the serials today. But the novel is pulling me so hard. I really want to work on the new WIP. But I know I have to work on the serials. Iâ€™m at a point now where Iâ€™m stuck on the adventure and I donâ€™t know whatâ€™s going to happen next. I need to start making better notes as I write so I wonâ€™t get hung up.
More words on the new WIP. But Iâ€™m starting to doubt my goal of 50K by the end of the month. I hope I can make it, but Iâ€™m not sure now. I should write on the weekends, really, but things are so busy then that I find it hard to find the time.
Spent some time helping a good friend get her website up and going. I made a really snazzy graphic for her new blog. You can see it here. I love it! Iâ€™m excited for her and I know she is as well on finally getting things up and running. This is her first foray into the world of blogging.
Learning to use Photoshop has really opened a lot of graphic doors for me. So thatâ€™s exciting as well. I just donâ€™t get to use it as much as Iâ€™d like. Iâ€™m hoping to get a good book on the program so I can really learn how to do some fantastic things. I love my revamped website, I just wish I had been able to do something like that myself. (Yes, itâ€™s a template.. but it fits me so well I think!)
I also want to get my submission package ready for Berkley today. I have some minor edits to make on the first three chapters and I intend to look at them this morning. And then write on the serialsâ€¦ and then the new WIPâ€¦
So much writingâ€¦ so little timeâ€¦
