Late, that is.
Marilyn here, huddled in the office listening to the awful brisk wind rattling the eaves and everything else. With my blinds closed, it looks dark and dreary out — like yesterday — and you’d swear it’s no more than 50 degrees, like yesterday. But it’s actually sunny and too warm for a jacket. Just blustery. Life on the hill.
Good news: I finished my next Harlequin Romantic Suspense!! A few changes, and it’s hitting the printer, then the post office. Yea!! We have a title now — Copper Lake Secrets — and a pub date: December ’11.
And now it’s on to the next one. There’s research to do, characters to name, enough plotting for the synopsis to satisfy my editor’s sharp requirements. And in the meantime, I have another idea for the one after this that’s rattling around in my brain.
It always makes me laugh when non-writers ask where my ideas come from. There’s so many in my head already that it’s no wonder I can’t remember things like what day it is or which bill I paid an hour ago. When I’m trying to chastise one of the five puppers, I just yell until the right name eventually comes out. (Funny. My mom used to do that to my sisters, nieces and me.)
I’d better get to those final changes before I forget what they are. Y’all have a great weekend and may you find lots of chocolate eggs in your basket!
