Mostly successful weekend

I got most of the things done on the list, and some extras – I didn’t get the paint away the yellow though because the weather was so bad yesterday. We’ve had a massive cold snap and it feels a lot like winter again unfortunately – hopefully it doesn’t last too long! We’re hopefully BBQing for Lauren’s first birthday in a couple of weeks and the weather better be behaving by then!

Anyways… I was in a foul mood yesterday, in part due to home stuff, but also because it had been days since I wanted to write the Johnny kills Ellie scene and I still hadn’t got the chance to! Arg, and then last night I had to leave for dinner at my Mum’s mid murder – very frustrating (I almost took the laptop with me so that I could keep writing it, but decided I wouldn’t be so rude!). Needless to say, I feel a whole lot better now that that little snippet of a story is finished.

So what’s next? I’m going to spend this week reading Following Faith and Ayden, making notes and plans, and then I get to launch into some revision and editing – YAY! I’m really excited to work on Following Faith, and even more excited to put it up here for people to read. Not that it will be everyones cup of tea but oh well, I like the story.

As well as that, I’m going to be sending out my first query letters for Lifelines. Feeling good about that and looking forward to another learning curve. It will be really nice not to be working on it for awhile, thats for sure.

All in all, it’s an exciting time in my writing life right now. Very exciting.

With that said, I better go and finish the housework. Almost time to drop Ivy at preschool and then it’s play time with Lauren for a couple hours… then finally, nap time and I can do my reading/note taking. Oh, bliss.

  1. Cool to hear that you had a productive weekend. Are you planning to send the query letters off to agents or publishers with ‘Lifelines’? I’m always conflicted on the agent vs publishers issue and I’m curious what other kiwi writers think.
