Ok, first of all you guys are so sweet to leave such lovely comments about both Misty Belle and my daughter...thank you!!!
The past few days I've been working like crazy! Not on decorating my house like most of you...oh how I wish, but on stories that are due very soon.
The crazy thing about freelance writing is that it's often feast or famine, and when you do get assignments they are often on a tight turnaround schedule, sometimes just a few weeks.
I don't really mind the tight deadlines because it gets me motivated, and if I have too long I will sometimes put things off. So when I'm in the zone for writing, I really do prefer to just keep at it until everything is done and sent off to the editor I'm working with at the moment.
What it does mean though is that everything else gets put on the back burner. I don't reply to emails, except work related ones, I can't do my usual blog reading, and worst of all I can't vacuum the tumbling tumbleweeds of dog hair floating across the floors in my house!
