Confessions and a Deadline

I'm not Catholic but I live in a house with them and therefore this feels like a good time for a confession.

Hello Blog. I have not visited you in two weeks.  During that time I have often been busy working on my new novel as I should be. I also had to stop to write two non fiction write- for- hire books about Football. It was fun but way more work than I thought. The time she is ticking. November, she is a busy busy month. Plus I have begun a run program with plans to run my first half marathon in March 2012?. Yes. I might be crazy. Have I mentioned that I am not a very good runner?

I have spent wasted time reading celebrity gossip. What is up with Blake Lively? Did she really dump Leo or did he dump her? Should I really care? I suppose I'll never know the truth. Seriously she'll always be Bridget from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants to me. No matter who she is sleeping with or how much cleavage she shows in a dress.  Okay. Yes. I'm jealous.

I also rediscovered that I am really not a fan of Jesse James. Really not. Did you know he fooled around on that tattoo girl 19 times? Well with 19 different woman, probably more times. Which is bad enough, but what makes it worse to me is that he said something that was a total SLAM to Sandra Bullock,while engaged to tattoo girl.  Something about the tattoo girl being the very best lover he ever had.  So he purposely went out of his way to make Sandra Bullock feel bad when he was fooling around on Tattoo girl too.  Grrr. He has really scary eyes I think. Plus have I mentioned how much I love Sandra Bullock? She handled the whole thing with mega class.

 Please Blog. Tell any teen readers to never ever let themselves be fooled by the bad boy antics of boys like Jesse James. They will break your heart. Every time. There may be a character who has similarities in my new book. But I don't want to give spoilers. So shhhhhhh.

During my absense I also watched almost two full seasons of Drop Dead Diva. This. This is an awesome show. I need to hunt down Season Three.  But not until I finish writing.

I am working working working on book 3, WHO I KISSED.  I promise. And you know what, it has some really awesome parts. Unfortunatley right now it also has some parts that need work. ALOT of work. This deadline stuff is kind of freaky.

The next few weekends I have swim meet committments. I have lots of work to do. Did I mention this deadline stuff is kind of freaky?

I will be back soon, Blog. In the meantime.  If I'm not here, I'm writing. (or catching up on celebrity gossip. But shhhhh. Let's pretend it's all writing)


  1. Haha- that celebrity gossip gets the best of us! Just consider it "research" for future books. Haha.

    Can't wait to read WHO I KISSED!!

  2. Love Drop Dead Diva! Haven't watched it in a while, but it totally reminded me of Ally McBeal. And I think I read that Blake is now w/ Ryan Reynolds...who is bff with Sandra Bullock. The plot thickens!

  3. Well now. You were the first blog up for my morning read and let me just say...MOST ENJOYABLE!! I must watch this Drop Dead Diva. I think I would love it. Finally, yes on the shhhhhh, we will be vewy vewy quiet.

  4. Thanks for the juicy gossip. Now get to work on that book!
