This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for December.
T. Drecker from Kidbits,
Eva E. Solar at Lilicasplace,
and Patsy Collins!
Please stop by their blogs and say thank you.
Trying to balance being an author with being a working wife and mom is tough. Throw in a major holiday and, in just one week, my word count total went from 2,380 to 650. December's not looking much better.
I'm trying to keep a good attitude. I was able to do half my shopping online Monday-- yippee. The other half (or most of it) will get done later this week, during mine and hubby's annual take-off-work-and-go-shopping trip. We even do lunch! :) Then, the whole family will go to the tree farm and chop down our Christmas tree this weekend. That's always fun.
Writing? Maybe next week... :P
The very best part Christmas this year is that my kids are all teens now. Thanks to one diehard hanger-oner, Santa left them a note last Christmas, saying their gifts would be under the tree with the adults' gifts from now on. Woohoo! Momma gets to sleep on Christmas Eve! hahaha
I have an announcement (two, actually).
But first, a little mood music...
I'm forming an official street team!
It'll be a mix of beta readers, ARC reviewers, and jack-of-all-trades promoters. If you're interested in joining, click here.
And (*drum roll*)...
