Summer Journal 2013 - Entry #7

Right now I am either heading toward or will have arrived in historical Le Claire, Iowa for a long weekend getaway with the hubby and our parents! It's an annual tradition, and one we look forward to each year.

With lots of chores to do to get ready for vacation at the end of the week, writing didn't take as much of a priority this past week.

I did do some writing on my WIP. I'm up to 17,600 words as of the writing of this post. So not great progress from last week, but at least I got something done. Ideas keep niggling at me, but when I find time to sit down at the computer, they seem to fly out of my head. Even when I write bits and pieces of them down on paper. I won't bring my laptop with me on vacation, but I will bring a notebook. Who knows, maybe inspiration will strike while we're visiting local museums and shopping. You never know!

I designed my bookmarks for This Feels Like Home, then realized I can't place the order yet as I don't have an ISBN. The sale at my printer is over at the end of next week, so I have my fingers crossed for a galley file coming soon. If not, I'll just have to wait until the next sale.

I sat down to order postcards for The Vampire and the Vixen and realized the sale on that site (different from the one which I order my bookmarks from) wasn't one of their best. So I guess I'll hold off on those, too. I'm hoping to get those done sooner rather than later so I have them for Vampire's free Kindle days at the end of August. Maybe I can just have some printed on glossy paper at a local office supply store instead of ordering on line.

Since I'm out of town, I also wrote and scheduled both of my blog posts for the weekend. This one for today and Monday's at Authors By Moonlight.

With three weeks of summer vacation left (Yep, that's time flies.) I'd really like to make more progress on "One Great Night". It was my goal to have it done this summer. We'll see if that happens or not.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

The weekend away sounds wonderful.
Current WIP-you're making progress, that is what counts.

I guess every little bit, counts, right?
