I'd like to say that this post is the start of a new habit - posting an update every Monday on where I'm at with, well with whatever...my blog, remember? - but because that indicates I would actually remember to post this every Monday, I'm not going to commit to it.
I have enough on my plate as it is. =)
But here it is:
I'm still sick with pnemonia, a fact that frustrates me enormously. I don't make a very patient sick person. How can I? There's so much to do and I have to just sit in bed all day and rest. Fortunately, my hubby did absolutely everything around here all weekend (left me a nice clean house today!) and I got to rest so hopefully I'll be up and around again in a couple days.
What a boring topic. On to something better.
Books I'm Currently Reading:
CREATION IN DEATH by J.D. Robb. Can't wait to gobble those up as soon as they hit the market. It's one of the only series I buy in hardback because I can't stand to wait for paperback.
HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE by my friend Jeaniene Frost - the book (her first) came out last week and hit #23 on the NYT's bestseller's list. That is a HUGE accomplishment!
I'll be finished with Alexa Tate Book One (yes, yes, that's the current title...I told you I stink at titles but my critique partner is helping me) by Friday. I'm thrilled because the plot twisted into an entirely unexpected direction last night and I realized I'd set myself up for it nicely all along. I love it when my brain is working without my knowledge. :)
I'm also working on DYING TO PUNISH, the sequel to DYING TO REMEMBER (see? once I have one title in the series, the rest are easy) which is the novel that is a) under final consideration with a publisher and b) entered into Amazon.com's Breakthrough Novel Contest. I like where this is going too...very creepy villain. My favorite kind.
Current Musical Obsessions:
RED - End of Silence: by far one of the best albums I've ever heard. Ever.
BATMAN BEGINS - Soundtrack: haunting and interesting and what I listen to now while I write.
EVANESCENCE - Origin: I listen to something from Evanescence every day. Now I'm exploring the older stuff.
On My Calendar:
Thursday: Girl's Night In at my house with four of my close girlfriends.
Sometime Soon: Thanksgiving shopping and planning for my hubby's upcoming birthday.
Sometime Sooner: Figure out what everyone is wearing for our family portrait this coming Monday.
And that concludes this Monday's update.
