This Poor Excuse of a Blog Update

I'm terrified to tell you what I've been up to, because it could only give you a far-too-accurate idea of how I have what's called "a wishful relationship with time."

The short version goes a bit like this.  My NaNoWriMo is going great guns (I'll pass 40,000 words tonight with 8 days to go) but Love in Reality is still on life support and I really, really need to get in there, do the blasted sextuple bypass surgery, suture it up and tell it not to eat so many fatty foods in the future.

That's about all I have to tell you.  I want to submit Love in Reality for the Golden Heart contest, which means I have 8 days for that as well.  (Actually 7.5 days, but who's counting...)

So, two deadlines (yes, I know I don't have to finish NaNoWriMo, but that's the one I'm really enjoying -- hell, I was writing while waiting in the doctor's office this afternoon...) and Thanksgiving: quite a week.

If you're jonesing for a longer Promantica post, here are some oldies but goodies.  Enjoy -- and have a great Thanksgiving!

A post about the power of music in movies -- do we want that also for books?

The post where I admit I (very nearly) liked a Judith Ivory romance

A very long (don't say I didn't warn you) post on five Regency romances with heroines in some 19th C. version of the sex trade.

And, appropriately enough, a post acknowledging that while I might be busy, I have WAY more free time than virtually all of you.  Which makes me tip my hat to you all over again.

  1. Good luck on making your deadlines. I really enjoyed the snippet from your NaNo effort in your previous post. No wonder you are having fun writing that!
    And thanks to the links to some of your older posts. I had not seen the Regency review post before, and I discovered another fan of His Lordship's Mistress--too cool.
