Monday Mayhem – Fab five
What I’ve been working on: Lots of stuff for the day job, a little writing, and conquering the headache from hell (thank God it’s gone now).
What’s running around in the back of my mind: The story I will start while on the annual DSRA writing retreat in Hot Springs next weekend.
What I’ve accomplished: You remember that story I shared last week? It’s a hot contemporary novella called Jump Into Love and I got some awesome news about it this week. I’ll share as soon as everything is official. 🙂
What new goal I’m chasing: Finished the first pass of revisions on my WIP. Now all I have to do is write the ending!
What I saw: “A green room, a telephone, a red balloon, a picture of the cow jumping over the moon….” My future reader.
To celebrate my pending good news, here are another five lines from Jump Into Love:
