This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Plugging Along on TextNovel.com

More and more folks are joining TextNovel.com --get over there and prowl through the virtual pages! Start reading or writing on your cell phone --TextNovel.com is free (at least from the TextNovel side--I guess the rest depends on your phone's service).

I'm still working on my "Of Storms, Seas and Pirates" cell phone novel (and one called "Phonies") over at TextNovel.com, but my time is being eaten away by visiting in-laws (who I wouldn't trade for the world), moving more worldly possessions (which I'm finding more and more I don't really need) from our old place to the new one, helping move in the owner at the old place (because he believes we have more time than we ever do) and Elance. Ah, Elance (I think my head's gonna' explode while working my way through one job with a foreign publishing house).

I haven't been doing the prompts I want to, and even when I'm trying to "come down" after a long day I'm getting assaulted by ideas for new novels. I appreciate each one, but MAN! I need to be able to finish what I've started. And, if all holds true, it looks like two more Elance jobs (one editing, one illustrating) will head my way before summer's end. I know I should be grateful. I AM grateful. But I'm also overwhelmed with work-related writing and it's squeezing out my creative writing. Ugh.

I hope things are going better for all of you!

You are the Huntress... No matter how many times you try and prove yourself to be good, you always seem to be stuck in the same rut, with the reputation as a "bad girl". Guys love to hang around you because you're easy to talk too.
