I know. I know. I’ve been a pretty bad blogger lately, but I promise to reform. The problem is, most the time I don’t know what to write about. My life isn’t all that exciting. But I like talking to you each week. It’s true. I’ve missed you. And I’m going to do five things to make it up to you.
That’s right. Five things. Not bad, huh?
Each week that I don’t have something special to share, I promise to share at least five things with you. They could be five lines from one of my stories or five whats. What’s a what, you ask? They’re pretty simple:
What I’ve been working on:
What’s running around in the back of my mind:
What I’ve accomplished this week
What I accomplished this week:
What new goal I’ve set:
What I saw:
Since I’ve been a bad blogger, this week I will give you both.
Here are five lines from Long Distance Love:
“I’m being transferred to Louisville,” she said in a rush. Her statement landed like a punch to the gut. “Yeah. I just…I don’t see how….”
Ellie’s small, sad smile tugged at him, spurring him into action. “We’ll make it work.”
Not enough for you? Buy the book!
Long Distance Love – releasing THIS WEEK from Turquoise Morning Press:
Love may be a many splendored thing, but it’s rarely convenient.
A Christmas Eve snowstorm leaves newly-single Ellie Nichols trapped in an airport terminal with only hunky FBI Agent Jack Rudolph for company.
For Jack, the passing of a long winter’s night turns into a New Year filled with possibility. State lines and hundreds of miles separate them, but the spark that flares each time they meet cannot be denied.
Can two ambitious, career-driven people find a way to make a long distance relationship work when matters of the heart bring them up-close and personal?
And here are my 5 whats:
What I’ve been working on: I’m working on love story for people who saw movies from The Breakfast Club era when they were first released. It’s a racy one, so you might be more apt to find updates on it at Maggie Wells’ website.
What’s running around in the back of my mind: WWII – I have a WWII-era story flirting around the edges. Nothing concrete yet, just a bunch of plot bunnies hopping around in my head.
What I’ve accomplished: Did I tell you I’ve sold a story to Fictionvale Magazine? It’s the short story that sparked this WWII jones, and it will appear in the online magazine’s premier issue in November!
What new goal I’m chasing: At the moment I’m just trying to keep writing. The demands of the day job and the distractions at home have wreaked havoc on my productivity this year. I’ve recently tried to settle into a pattern where I’m writing a minimum of 500-1000 words per day and not beating myself up if I can’t do anything more. So far, it seems to be working. I hope to gradually build on that over the next couple of months so I’ll be back in fighting form for NaNoWriMo. So yeah…my new goal is balance.
What I saw: True love
Your turn! What are your whats for the week?
