Where I'm at...

I've added a few more sites to my sidebar for you to check out. Most of them have links to other sites that are also helpful. Sometimes I suffer from information overload... There's so much good stuff out there that it can be overwhelming. I've been taking some notes from these blog posts for future reference. Fortunately, most of the agents/writers blogs are nicely indexed.

Have you ever noticed that when you buy a car it seems like there are suddenly millions just like it on the highway? When you are focused on something, you see it everywhere! I was watching a movie tonight with Ali and Papaw, Labor Pains with Lindsay Lohan. Guess what business she's in? Yep. She ends up representing an author with a pregnancy book, and ends up pushing it in stores and on TV. It wasn't extremely educational, but it did get some wheels turning.

I realize that I cannot devote the time I need to my book right now. In less than a month, Ali will be back home for school. My writing will again become a daily priority. But for now, I'll settle for making a few notes, and maybe tweaking my outline. There's too much pulling me away...

Thanks for the links. I have been visiting the older ones and will check out the new ones you've added.

The time will go by pretty fast and you will get back in the groove of writing again.

There is a new Meryl Streep movie coming out soon, about a blogger who publishes a cookbook. Julie and Julia, or Julia and Julia or something like that? It looks great.

I applaud your idea and as always support everything you do. Just remember, at the book signing...I will be there.

Hang in there, I keep telling myself that winter will be hear before we know it and I can catch up on all the stuff I putting on hold right now.

When the time comes to publish my background is merchandising and promotional sales, call me!

I know all about juggling priorities - it's so frustrating when all the important things come along together!
But trust your subconscious mind, it will still be working on your book while you're busy with other things. It might amaze you when you get back to writing.

Wow... it like you're in my mind. I guess that also makes what you said true. Thanks

I'm in the same boat! I hope to have more time soon. We'll get there, Lily! By the way, there's something on my blog for you. :)
