Shawn Lane had a post the other day which prompted me to take a good look at the calendar and realize the end of the month was less than 3 weeks away. 2 weeks and a few days, to be more exact. Convincing Leopold is due at the end of February. Based on my word count, I'm not yet half way done with the book.
So I'm now officially in the writing cave. I'm even planning to boot chatty hubby out of the basement tomorrow night. Given it's been averaging 14 deg here of late, it's much too cold to write in the garage. My space heater doesn't do crap when it's that cold. So I'm in the basement, but hubby's here too and he's rather chatty (he's discovered Skype recently). I love him and all, but he's seriously disturbing the muse. So he's getting the boot starting tomorrow night.
Good thing is that I've finished reviewing the proofs for Bound Forever and sent them to my editor, so that's done. I can now focus totally on Arthur and Leopold.
And I won't be completely alone in the cave.
Meet Ryan. He's one of Ken's friends. His packaging called him 'Ken', but I mean really, you can't have 2 dudes side by side at the store and call them the same name when they are clearly not the same guy. *shakes head at the marketing dept* One of kidlet's barbie books had barbie's friends in it, and there was a cute little hottie with dark hair named Ryan. So I've decided he's Ryan.
I haven't abandoned the Princes, but those 2 are officially the kidlet's and live in the bin of barbies. Ryan hangs out on my desk behind Pretty. He'll be my company in the cave for the next 2 weeks and 4 days.
If you don't see me out and about, it's because I'm in the cave. Wish me luck!! ...I think I'm going to need it - the frentic music is already playing. ;)
