Aagh! The Pain! The Pain!

Currently reading - Dark and Stormy Knights, edited by P.N. Elrod

Yes, the title means I've been thinking too much (now you know why this post is late). Angie Benedetti makes me think. Which really is a good thing, and someday I'll meet her and thank her in person.

I'm really, really grateful I'm not published right now. That sounds weird, doesn't it? A wannabe writer thankful she's not in the trenches yet?

As Angie said in her comment last Friday, she doesn't have the time to sit and think through a problem. Those pesky deadlines!

And I've seen the same issue with Christie. Poor girl had a Aug. 2nd deadline for her latest book. The editor mailed the galleys for the previous book on July 17th, and wanted them back by the 27th. And she and Faye were doing a workshop at the RWA National Convention, which was July 28-30.


I appreciate my relatively stress-free environment now more than ever.

Now I need to figure out how to get my hero and heroine all hot and heavy while they're towing around a pregnant chick and the ghost of the pregnant chick's husband.

Yeah, I really like my problems.


  1. Happy to help you find contentment with your current state of being. :D


  2. Revisions are hell. Total and complete hell.

    Damn, I'm a downer today, sorry :) there smiley faces make up for everything, right?

  3. You do, Angie. You really, really do.

  4. Hang in there, Julie! I can't wait to see your book on the shelves!
