Good Monday morning!

Not that I like Monday's. I do...but I don't. LOL. It means I've got to get the kiddos up early and back to school. And it's raining this morning so I have to trick the dogs into going outside.

But I also get tired of laying around. We didn't have much to do this weekend. I worked on my chapter, a few crits, and started reading a new book. I NEEDED to finish painting the bathroom and trim it out. It was hard to get motivated without hubby here to help. I'll definitely have to finish it this week though, he's issued a challenge. He thinks I'm saving it for him to do. This could go two ways. He could be trying to use reverse pyschology on me. Probably not. He's just feeling his manly need to take charge.

I worked on my chapter this weekend. Hopefully I'll convince myself to quit messing with it and just hit send. But as I get each new crit, new points are being brought up. *sigh* I'm trying to stay true to the Superromance line and it's hard when there are so many different ways I could spin this. She needs to look ineffectual against her teen monster. It'll be part of her character arc. But I don't want her coming off as an idiot that doesn't care that he's drinking and driving. Argh! Back to work...if I can keep the laptop charged enough. I may have to work on the dreaded desktop. Or just give in and buy a new powercord.

We're getting ready to do our upstairs bathroom and the master bedroom over, but DH has to take down the wallpaper border before we paint. Ugh!

Rainy days are the best writing days. Hope you get your story issues worked out.

What did you start reading? I finished 'For the Love of Pete' by Julia Harper over the weekend and started Running Hot by Jayne Ann Krentz. Very good! Plus, the revisions. I know what you mean by the twists... Hope today is inspiring for you. :)

Chicki ~ UGH! I had to take down the border I'd put up in Cayd's room when he was a baby. We'd done it in a country Noah's Ark. It was a big pain in my butt to take down and repaint. I just need to buy a new power cord for my laptop, but it may mean a trip to Oklahoma City.

Bethanne ~ I thought I'd try Karen White's - The House on Tradd Street. She's a new author for me and I love southern based mysteries. So far so good;)

Hey Chelle,

I just hit send on my new chapter and I know what you mean. I kept tweaking until it started becoming sterile so I just sent it.

Good luck with yours,
