The week that was

Another hysterical night in the RomAus chat room to finish off the week. I do love those chat sessions. 

Its been a great week! I worked on my writing challenge story and, aside from a little shaky first day, I’ve gotten the story flowing smoothly again.   After 4000 words, I left my couple lolling on the bed. I wonder what they will get up to on the weekend?

Edits for The Pursuit of Pleasure are going great too. The first seven chapters are just the way I want them, so onwards to the saggy middle. I have some tweaks to make with the secondary characters and of course the first kiss is coming up.

But the best news of the week, year (I’d say decade but my youngest child is seven) is that I was offered a publishing contract for my short regency story, One Wicked Night. More info as it comes to hand. To sayI’m excited is an understatement. I’ve been bouncing around the house all week. It is so hard to be cool and professional at times like this. LOL.

The plan for next week:

*  3 chapters on the writing challenge story, although the challenge ends on the 28th. I suppose I’d better settle on a real title for that story. Options: Ice Princess, Psycho Sisters, Sibling Wars. Ooh, I like that last one.  I’ll accept any suggestions!

* Edit 2 chapters of pursuit of pleasure.

* Polish posts for Lady Scribes blog. We’re having so much fun with that site.

I hope you’re where you want to be at this point in the week. Oh, and my Man Monday posts will resume to give you that little inspirational pick-me-up for next week.

Cheers
