Reading and Writing and Mondays

Today I got my nails done. Why blog about nails? I'm not. I'm blogging about what it takes to keep focused. A lot of distractions. Seriously. The more you plug into a day - as long as it doesn't become too random - the better. Here's how it works. Establish a ritual. Stick to it, and whoa -- you're writing 2000 words a day.

Or not.

I'm recommending a book - J. D. Robb's first book in the 'Death" series. Believe me. I know how far behind I am (published in 1995), but I'm enjoying the shit out of Ms. Eve Dallas. I also am still figuring out the difference between series (length?) and single title (longer?). I think there's more to it, and I'll have to nail it down before my next trip to RWA Nationals. Why? Because by then I'll finally be in the PAN group (is that the one that has been rejected?)

Still waiting to hear from the agent and the the end of this month, it will be three months since I submitted...


  1. I absolutely love the J.D. Robb series. Just started Promses in Death. Can't get enough of Eve and Roarke. :D

  2. thanks for commenting, and heck yes, I'm excited about finally starting to read this series. (I'd been talking about it but sometimes don't read as much as I should because of the trying to write! And oh, I visited your site - congratulations on your first published book!

  3. Don't feel bad, I just read the first book in the Naked series too. My friend started me on the first two by loaning them to me, and I was halfway through Glory in Death when I lost it! So it looks like my friend will get a brand new book returned to her (read once, of course)
