I. Just. Want. To. Write!!!

To say I’ve been busy lately is to put it mildly. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. It’s been the best, most long-awaited busyness one could dream of.

I completed and edited book # 2 (Out of Her Hands) in my Tyndale contract and planned and executed my book launch party. (Sorry to mention that again, I’m sure you’re all sick of hearing about it.)

My houseful of relatives emptied on Tuesday, and I went back to my day job. Yesterday I realized I was experiencing the first day I didn’t feel stressed or rushed about what needs to be done and what I could possibly be forgetting to do. That’s been my reality for months. You only have one shot at being a debut novelist, and I truly want to do it right.

And now the sun is shining, the sky is Colorado-blue and I can’t wait to get back to story #3. I felt the urge to dive into writing last night, but practicality overrode impulse, and I allowed myself to get the most hours of sleep I’ve had in over two weeks.

But now I’ve gotta go. . .

I. Just. Want. To. Write!!!

Megan, Once again I am thrilled for you! Are you sick of hearing that? You inspire the dream inside so many of us. I am looking forward to Barnes and Noble night on the 29th when you speak at WFTJ. I read Searching for Spice but I want to buy a copy and get it autographed! :0)

Oh, and we started another ticker! I can't believe how exciting this is. You rock!

How smart you are to get some sleep!

Megan, Your book saved my life (well, at least my sanity) when we were camping this weekend! (Details on my blog). Glad you,re writing more books - you really have a flare for taking us right into the story.:)
