I missed heading out for the boys’ swim lessons this morning. They provided a “goal” to getting out of the house on time. I did manage to get the boys to Summer Day Camp pretty much at the stroke of …

Filed under A Writer's Life

Well, this week has certainly marched on by. Lots happened, lots of writing, lots of inspiration, lots of rejections (yeah, I keep telling myself that they are part of the publication process, but it’s still an ouch).

Swim lessons are …

Is it really Friday already?

The week has been dominated by swim lessons, summer day camp, and topped off by a visit from my best friend from college. We had a fantastic visit and vowed not to let so much …

Back from Banff
Monday, April 14th, 2008

I had every intention of blogging each and every day from Banff…the spotty internet connection we had there dictated otherwise.

My hubby’s been out of town for a few days, and I’ve been “home alone” with the kids (picture me doing a Macauley Culkin scream). I’ve been getting up at 5 so that I could get a little work done …

I am totally jazzed. The Romance Writers of America (RWA) annual convention is “right up the street” from me this year (about 6 hours, but hey!). Registration is now open and this morning, despite my internet connection being slower than …
