>This week has been a whirlwind of activity, but with everything but writing. Alas, some weeks are like that.
Two bits of good news from this week: On Friday, I received a contract for a True Confessions story I submitted over two years ago! No matter. It’s a sale, it’s income. I’ll take it. 🙂
The second good thing was in my e-mail Saturday morning: notification that my short story, “Gamble on Love” has been accepted for publication in the new Love Stories Magazine by Grass Roots Publishing. Another bit of writing income, yay!
And the departure: My son is preparing to move to the Los Angeles area next Thursday and begin his professional acting career. For the second time, he’ll be leaving the nest. While my hubby and I want this for him and recognize it should be a good move for his career, it’s hard knowing he’s moving so far away. Who knows when we’ll see him again?
His being back at home has been, at turns, frustrating and inconvenient (as can be the case with any parent whose adult child moves back home), but overall he’s a very upbeat, centered person and utterly enjoyable to be around. I’ll miss him and his easy smile terribly.
Look for him on your TV or movie screen soon and remember the name: Jason Burnside.
Jason (pictured above) leaves May 1st, the same day I begin a month-long challenge with Catauniversity to write 25K in 31 days. I need the distraction, the focus and push to really get rolling on His Perfect Partner (aka HPP).
J.T. and Cass are great characters with painful pasts and (if I can do their story justice) I expect this book could be the best of the three Baxter books. And to that end, I must get back to writing.
Wish us both luck, won’t you?
