Wednesday

Standard

Hope everyone had a great holiday and that you have wicked, fun plans for the New Year!

Just finished the copy edits on “Charmed & Ready.” I love that book. Love the story just as much, if not more, than “Charmed & Dangerous.” Next I’m on to my final revisions on Zombies. Then I’m working on another new project while I’m in L.A. but it’s all very hush, hush. ;-) Work is crazy busy. This week I’m writing stories about Kiefer Sutherland and Randy Jackson (American Idol) and I need to work ahead before heading out to L.A, so I’m not killing myself while I’m there.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Not me. Don’t like them. But I do have short and long term goals. I think it’s important for focus, especially for writers. When you give yourself a deadline, and then you make yourself accountable to someone else, you’re more likely to get things done.
