Welcome to the first week of the new posting schedule – no posts on Thursday or Sundays from this point on. Which means you get a quick run-down of the blog news on Monday along with my goals list.
I’m starting a new weekly post topic on Wednesday called “Everyday Romance” that will feature real-life stories of love and romance, along with tips to keep the romance alive in your own relationships. I hope you’ll join us – this week I’m featuring a guest post by Kristen Lamb, who inspired me to start this ongoing series for romance readers. I have a few more guest posts lined up too, one in a “he said/she said” format that I think will be very entertaining.
This Week on The Variety Pages
Monday: News & Goals
Tuesday: Construction Zone – Names in Dialogue

Also on Friday – I’m guest posting at Writer Revealed on why I write romance, so stop by and say “Hi”!
Now for the goal report. Last week went pretty well, though HPC revisions are still moving slower than I’d like. I did finish Ch. 2, and moved into Ch. 3, so I’m definitely making progress. I met my other writing goals, so that was good. I’m getting back to work on some other projects too this week, but they’ll slip into times when I can’t work on HPC for whatever reason. I’m working an extra half-hour into my writing schedule every night to move the HPC revisions along (hopefully).
I did okay on the personal goals – settled my blog schedule and reorganized how/when I write posts. I repotted plants, worked out, but didn’t quite catch up on laundry or manage to reply to my comments the same day. My blog host was trying to fix the email replies function for me, and couldn’t…so I’ll figure out a work around this week.
– Finish Ch. 3 revisions to HPC
– Mark up Tempest ms for editing
– 250 words for Hearts on Trial whenever I can take my breaks at work.
– Ch. 16 of Indelibly Inked
– Reply to blog comments daily
– Answer interview questions for May blog interview
– Write questions for guest bloggers
– More cleanup work in the yard
– Start Cemetery Dance by Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child (hubby just finished it, my turn!)
That’s what’s going on around here this week. Whew! Here’s to a happy, productive week.
What’s going on in your world? Any posts we should look for? Good books you’ve read lately?
