My Book Boyfriend is Back (well, one of them is)

Let’s start out with some fun stuff . . .

What I’m Reading:

25776210Fire Touched (#9 of the Mercy Thompson Series)

By: Patricia Briggs (I will read anything this woman writes. Her, and Ilona Andrews.)

I got sidetracked last week from reading this. Lesson learned, don’t try to read books on your Kindle only when you rock your baby to sleep. It doesn’t work that way. You get hooked and then get sidelined from reading the novel you pre-ordered months ago. All the same, at least the book I read last week was worth it. Soooo good. (It was “Radiance” by Grace Draven, for those who want to know.)

Now I’m gleefully tearing through “Fire Touched.” Only on chapter 2, but amazingly funny, like always, and totally hooked. Gotta love Mercy, Adam, and crew.  I’ll have it finished by Sunday night for sure. Kind of sad that it takes me that long now to finish a book (pre-baby it was more like 2 days when I ‘frenzied’).  Oh well. I guess that means I just get to adore it longer. And spend more time with one of my book-boyfriends. I missed you, Adam.


What I’m Writing:

Edits on my short story are slow but steady. Love the changes that are happening, especially when my word count on it is slowly going down. I want that puppy below 10k. I’m so grateful for my group helping me with it.

The novel is chugging along nicely too. I’m either at 50% or a little over that. I’m hoping to see if I can keep the sucker below 100K. I have my doubts, but I’m going to try my hardest. If I manage to keep it at 90-95K (or honestly, anything under 100k, even if it’s 98K) will make me thrilled. I’ll celebrate. I swear I will if I manage to keep my goal and not go over.

Anyway, I’m enjoying writing the new shiny. If I keep my pace up, I should be done come end of April or beginning of May.

Other Randoms:

Working out is my new hobby, and I think I’m a little crazier for it. I’ve been running like a hamster on a wheel at the gym for over 13 weeks now, and I will soon begin either “T25” or “Cize”.  Jack won’t let me buy another Beach Body dvd set. Their constant “buy ME” adds are annoying as all get out, but they’re effective, I’ll give their marketing department that.

I see your challenge that everyone can dance, Shaun T, and I accept. I really can’t dance, but this should be fun.
