Pass the sunscreen...
No more writing this week, no more thoughts of Sabrina and Lila and no thoughts of anything remotely writing related.
Maybe its time for MV marathon, 2 seasons of Crockett and even better, the NHL starts up again this week. And its a week Tuesday till I get to go to a game. Let's celebrate that one shall we? *g*

Why I *heart* Mondays...
Had a good chat with Nell this afternoon and brainstormed some of the plot points that bugged me all weekend. Feeling a little better about them and more energized about the story in general. Always good in my book! hehe
Now if I can tackle chapter two and three tonight I'll really be on a roll! Figured out a new way for the pendant to way into PAC scene that I'm anxious to toy with.

Pour myself a drop of ambition...
In travels on the net today, stumbled across this - a good interview with Nadia from Firebrand: http://www.wildchildpublishing.com/content/view/159/46/
And anyone whose a dog person is okay in my books *thumbs up*
What else can I add to this ramble of a post. Let's see...
Yesterday, good day on ebay. I was the winning bidder on DJ's Heartbeat CD *sigh* I so cannot wait to get this in the mail!!! It'll make a nice combo with my poster when it arrives :o)
Other than that, eh...
Sabrina's next draft is going. Not bad. Not excitingly good either. Though I can't wait to be finished and finally move on. And don't remind me of the synopsis and query this one needs, those are bad BAD words right now :o)

Especially for figuring out the order of things.
I've got 55 files sitting in the sceneage folder (and that's only half of the story so far) waiting to find a home. *hits head on desk* I'd like to thank my muse for this schmozzle. Really, truly. What did I ever do to you I ask? :o)
If you hear a sizzling, don't be alarmed. Its just my brain frying! *g*
My lone brain cell is too tired to put a lot together right now. I've been cutting the huge file of Sabrina into separate files, every scene in its own file so I can try and put all the puzzle pieces together. Imagine the fun!!! But on the good side, I did get the link to a newish BSB song LIFT ME UP that's so good its been on repeat for 2 hours now :o) Why this didn't make the album is freaking beyond me.
I'm halfway through the first bits of Sabrina (not really in order so its halfway through the overall story) and some of this is actually pretty funny. And I found 2 bits I don't remember writing. Gotta love those 'where did this come from?' moments.
Can you guess what I'm doing later today? (well until the Dallas - Phoenix game. Can't miss that can I?)

Some days are good...
Just wish today would have followed the same way. Didn't get any work done. Lost my writing flow. And a bunch of other stuff I don't feel like posting about.
Can we just quote Dixie Chicks "Cowboy Take Me Away" right about now?

2nd Post In A Day...
So I figured I've been blog neglectful long enough and I should try to add to the blog.
Got an email reply from one agent this afternoon on my status update. All she said was she'd get back to me ASAP. Hope for good news. She's had the partial since October so hoping that it did actually get delivered and didn't disappear into the black hole between here and NYC.
But what it means is if she's interested then I switch gears back to STTA for awhile and leave Sabrina and Lila alone for awhile (I know, hit 96K today, I could use a little breather from them myself) and not too mention, I found the original bit of that story idea for MX in my 2001 folder. Guess it just goes to show, that you really shouldn't get rid of old stories, or story ideas, you never know when they could be useful :o)
So, this quiz comes from Diana's blog (http://dianapeterfreund.blogspot.com/)
BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY, seek opportunities to genuinely connect with others, and need to be appreciated. They do everything with quality and are devoted and loyal friends and employers/employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to are their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and will give freely of themselves in order to nurture others lives.
BLUES, however, do need to be understood. They have distinct preferences and occasionally the somewhat controlling (but always fair) personality of a confident leader. Their code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as remembering special life events (i.e., birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable, thoughtful, nurturing, and can also be self-righteous, a bit worry-prone, and emotionally intense. They are like sainted pit-bulls who never let go of something once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere, make an effort to truly understand them, and truly appreciate them.

Friday night blahs...
REALLY REALLY bored.
So I figured what else can I do but update my blog.
After Wednesday's GREAT day writing wise, thanks to my marathon working chat with Kelly I managed another 6K on Sabrina :o) Woohoo, happy writer dance all around. But now, I am drained. Can't think and really don't feel like even laying eyes on Sabrina much less a sheet of lined paper and gel pen combination. I think I'm taking a day off. Or two.
This weekend's highlight, aside from our first real possible winter storm of the season (yuck) will be the Dallas game tomorrow at noon. Yay. Course that only applies if my fave player is off IR. If not, not really the big highlight it could have been.

Spent a good chunk of this morning updating my agent database. Hadn't realized half of the 100 agents in there had either moved agencies, switched addresses or ceased to keep agenting. But it should be up to date or at least the most its been in awhile.
Sabrina's still in need of her final timeline, hopefully it'll come by the end of the week. Trying to find a few more good spots for her to get herself into.
Not sure what my February goals are other then to have a query package done for Sabrina, and maybe have it polished and ready to go. Got a new idea based on an old story of mine that could be MX bound. We'll see how it goes.
