Monday Musings and Mumblings

Let me start off with a mumble about the first post I'd written and scheduled to go live at midnight. Obviously it didn't. Heck, I can't even find the darn thing! I've checked the other blogs I post at in a frantic haste, hoping I hadn't written it at the wrong blog.

There are times Blogger and I do not get along. Kinda like the pants I wore last year. Do you know what I'm saying?

I wish I was like other writers who had the time and the determination to stay in shape. I don't. I'm a habitual writer. Take my present situation, for example. I have a deadline in eleven days ... and at least twenty-four thousand words to write. Easy-peasy. Right? So, right now I don't have the time for fast walking or exercises. While my word count increases, so does my behind. I think we'll call it "writer's ass."

How about you? Do you have a routine of exercise?

Happy Monday, y'all.

My routine is more in writing than in actuality, whereas the "writer's ass" is unfortunately a reality. Good luck with your 24K--I think I'd need...probably a ghost writer.

Oh, Liz, I just wrote the first sex scene in the book. Chapter 16. My editor will not be happy. She doesn't understand my need to build a relationship first. I tell her she wants the first sex scene between the words "Chapter" and "One." I don't mind steamy, but I want it heartfelt steamy. She often makes me put them earlier in the book. ACK!

One of the pluses of living in a city is that I walk a lot. Oh, and I have complete faith in you that you'll breeze to your deadline (smile!).

Well, yes. Hubby and I are pary of a Mall Walkers group at an inside mall near where we live in Sacramento. The doors open at 7am and the stores don't open until 10am do we have a 3-hr opening in which we can walk to our hearts' content... And then have the rest of the day to do our other stuff. We both were told by our doctors a couple of years ago that we needed to get more exercise and this way it's cool in summer, warm in winter and dry year 'round. And we walk our dog in the mall too as long as we clean up any messes she makes. jdh2690@gmail.com

Thanks, Angela. This book is keeping me awake at nights. I keep plotting and replotting.

Hi Sweet Janice! That sounds like a great idea. Cheaper than paying for a gym membership, huh? Thanks for stopping by.
