I'm home from vacation. Had a wonderful time at the beach house, spotted a couple almost-cookie worthy specimens, and got a ton of writing done on Bound Forever. In fact, I'm working on the last chapter. Well, it's really chapter 5. Since I outline books by chapter before I write them, I can bounce all over the place depending on which scenes I'm feeling at the moment. With this one, I started at the beginning, then jumped to the end and worked my way back. Thus leaving me with chapter 5 to finish.
I'm on track to finish Bound Forever by mid-August. I define 'mid' as the 10th-20th, so even though it's the 16th, I haven't passed my self-imposed deadline yet. Nifty how that works, huh? *g*
I also finished up the first round of edits on His Client. I'll send them off tomorrow - I like to let edits sit for a night, just in case something occurs to me as I'm laying in bed or taking a shower (my two prime times for random writing-related thoughts to flitter through my head).
I took Sunday afternoon off from writing and took the kidlet to the mall. She wanted to go to Build-A-Bear, and since she's so damn cute, I of course said yes. The kidlet's kitty seemed to like her purchases. Though it took a bit of doing to convince the kidlet that Kitteh (that's her new name - it was hubby's doing) would not like to wear the matching jammie shorts, even though there's a hole in them for her tail.
Gotta love Kitteh. She put up with being tucked into bed with the new comforter and pillow set. Even stayed there for a good ten minutes.
Personally though, I think Kitteh was just so happy that we sprung her out of kitty jail (she went to a kennel while we were on vacation), that she was willing to put up with anything. Even the kidlet's particular brand of over-affection.
In case anyone noticed, I moved the Story Behind the Story post for Bound to Him out until 8/26. I've got news I'm gonna post instead later this week. ...yeah, I'm a tease. *g* But if you've been following the last few posts, you just might be able to guess :)
