...Am I Done Yet?

Wow. Last week was busy-busy-busy! Three guest blog spots written, a story finished and a query letter sent to an agent (gulp!), two contests done, the website updated, a birthday party planned and executed, bills taken care of... and somewhere in there, my WoW warlock ding'd seventy-eight (if you're not a gamer, don't ask. It will take too long to explain the awesome.) And I did it in four days, after ten days in Disney World.

No wonder I hurt today.

So. Things on my t0-do list today: figure out a way to rework a book and enter it in a contest; start Worth Fighting For, because Ben and Dave are my next project; take pain meds so my hands stop screaming at me and my back goes off strike; and... ding seventy-nine. I have some interview questions to answer for another author, but I'm putting that off for today. I'm not sure how much work I'll be able to get done until the pain meds kick in.

Gotta love arthritis. One week you're kicking ass and taking names, the next your ass is the one getting kicked.

At least Norwegian Wood is done at 79k. How about that? The vegetarian vampire is out of my head!

All I can say is WOW!!!!! You are kicking some major butt over there. I don't know how you do it, but can I say "very excited that you will be able to start on Ben and Dave" :) Been waiting on their story since I met them in STEEL BEAUTY.

Thanks for the update, think you need a couple days to recoup.

I probably would have been fine to work today... if it wasn't for my hands hurting. I'm having trouble opening soda cans. Gah.

I'd cross my fingers for tomorrow, but, ow. :p
