Home of a mother, wife, writer

So, that snow we had on Sunday…it was gone on Monday. I’m sure it won’t be too long before it’s back. But, we got wood pellets delivered on Monday, so we’ll be ready to run our pellet stove once it gets cold again.

Not much else going on this week. The girl failed her hearing test at school on Monday. So, we have to take her in and have a more thorough test done. Other than that, I’ve been focused mostly on writing & some editing this week.

Today, I’ve been working on Some Fools Never Learn. Making some progress on it. Today I have 21 sentences that I wrote this morning. This is the second time Tate and Emilia have run into each other.

But, all he wanted to do was dry her eyes. It was an unfamiliar urge.
“It’s nothing,” she said, trying to wave him off. “Just frustrated with bullshit.”
Her words took him by surprise. Mostly because he hadn’t expected her to swear. Maybe she wasn’t as prim and proper as he’d assumed. He wanted to push and find out what kind of bullshit she was dealing with, but a throat cleared behind them.
He turned and saw the director glaring at them. “You’re late, Mr. Hunter.”
Tate let out a long breath and turned back toward Emilia. “I could really start to hate him,” he muttered.
To his surprise, Emilia smiled at him. “Well, I’m the president of that club. But, feel free to put in an application for membership.”
He chuckled at her words then turned to face the director. There was definitely something about him Tate just didn’t like. He could hear Emilia’s heels clicking on the tile of the floor as she headed down the hallway. He hoped she wasn’t leaving. Only a couple minutes of talking to her just wasn’t enough. Not even close to enough.

Like I said, things are going well so far this week.

  • By the Gun -finish outline – got this done. Can start writing this new version next week
  • Let It Begin – reach 29000 words – 30289/29000 words. I only have 3 scenes left to write in this one. Should have it finished next week.
  • Some Fools Never Learn – reach 13000 words – 13497/13000 words.
  • Guarding the Heart – reach 67000 words
  • My Way To You – reach 3000 words
  • Stained Blood – finish polishing – making progress on this. Should still finish it this week.
  • Just Add Moonlight – Revise – weekend project
  • Read: 2k-10k – 85% – A little over 70% right now
  • Read: A Kiss for Midwinter (Courtney Milan), Broken Spell (Fabio Bueno), Fifty First Times(various), Into the Devil’s Underground (Stacy Green), The Summit (Kat Martin), & Slow Heat(Jill Shalvis) – I finished A Kiss for Midwinter but couldn’t get into Broken Spell. I read most of the stories in Fifty First Times but skipped a few of them. Then, I decided to do a re-read of Roni Loren’s Loving on the Edge series, despite the fact I have plenty still on my TBR list. I may read some of my other books between the ones in the series.
  • Knit: Cuddly Chevron Blanket – making slow progress on this still.
