Sept 1

This is a picture of me, my oldest daughter and my Mom in Mahone Bay. I love the town and plan to set a mystery there one of these days. Need to write faster...

After all that rain last night, the air is fresh and the breeze is blowing through my office/dining room windows. Love this weather.

It's a great time of year to reevaluate goals. I managed 10 hand written pages within the last couple of days. I'll get them keyed into the computer and off to my CP's tomorrow. I wrote several scenes that had to be discarded. They weren't going anywhere and I was even boring myself as I wrote them - a sure sign that something was wrong.

I've been searching around for a single title idea and I think I've come up with a good Romantic Suspense idea that lends itself to a "bigger" book. The hero and heroine are a little edgy and dark. I also have some plotting done for a mystery trilogy with a recovering addict as my heroine.

So, that leaves me with having to be a lot more disciplined if I want to get a real push for my writing. I'm taking Monday to do a nice spreadsheet and lists of those things I need to accomplish between now and Christmas - writing, house, exercise, etc., So I can come up with a plan and a time line.

Have you accomplished the goals you set at the beginning of they year? What are your writing plans from now until the end of the year?

3 Days to the first day of school!

2 months since I sent my partial to Desire.

Great pix, Anne! I love Mahone Bay too. I used to spend summers there when I was a kid.

I love Mahone Bay. And good for you on planning out your goals until Christmas! I'm sure you'll have no problem getting your book done by then. :)
