In the life of...Margot Justes

I have been glued to my key board practically all day.

Going through my final edit on the manuscript (I hope), answering all my e-mails, responding to the organizations I belong to and trying to do a marketing plan for the release of my book. Trying to keep my schedule and commitments straight.

I have this fear, that I will show up at the wrong place, at the wrong time, in the wrong state. I now have a planner and jot everything down, and of course I forget to check it. So, I put post-it notes in my purse, they get stuck to something in that cavern and I am still trying to figure out where I should be...I do need to keep track of my plans and continue to arrange gigs for the release of my book.

It is after all, getting to be that time. I never thought it would get here, and now I am terrified that it actually is here. It is even available for pre-order on pretty cool right, frightening and exhilarating would be more to the point.

The process of writing is wonderful, you create a scene, you delve into your characters and figure out what makes them tick. They take you on a journey. You develop and tell a story.

Then you sell your story, and your life takes an exciting unexpected turn.

Till next Saturday,

I've got a planner on my Iphone. I've got a pocket calendar to write in, yet I end up jotting down info about booksignings or contact names on post-its and other paper, then having to dig for it in my purse. Part of the game, I guess.
