Not Paying Attention...

I completely lost track of the fact that yesterday was Thursday! I missed posting a Thursday 13! And even though I don't have many Thursday 13er's comment here (and I don't post on that many of those blogs myself), I feel strangely let down and that I let others down. So sorry...

This week has flown by. My husband had/has the whole week off, and now it's coming to an end. I feel like we didn't do enough, didn't spend enough time together, and now it's almost time to go back to life as usual. I'll redouble my efforts for the rest of the long weekend...

As expected, no writing has been accomplished. I wish I could claim Julie's success and say that I've been a busy editing beaver (despite that not sounding good at all...), but I can't. The only productive things I've done writing-wise are think a little bit about my WIP and wonder if the scene where the hero and heroine meet has enough punch. I'm thinking no, so I'm brainstorming on how to add a little zest.

I did finally join the RWA PRO loop on Yahoo (after being a PRO for more than a year), but then I'm generally late out of the gate (I didn't apply for PRO until about a year and a half after I'd met all the requirements). I figured it was about time as I've been suckered into being the PRO Liaison for our chapter next year. I'm expected to write a column for each month's newsletter. Egad!

In reading news, I'm poised on the brink of starting The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig. I've really enjoyed her Pink Carnation series so far and am looking forward to another installment...

I hope all of you enjoy the rest of your holidays! And if they ended too soon, I commiserate.

angela is right - go easy on yourself - you're allowed to post anything you want on your birthday week!

Happy new year - hope you and hubby have a great long weekend :)

i can relate on feeling like not enough was accomplished this week . . . but i'm think "three more days" before we all head back to work and school - so i'm going to make the most of it! :o)

happy new year!

I need to apply for PRO status. I'm pretty late on things, too.
