Taking Care of Business


I finished cleaning. Broth’s simmering on the stove. A Sunday afternoon breeze is coming through the window. Baseball game on the radio. The Jays are leading the Twins 7-3 in the 7th inning. And I’m waiting for that magical time when I go pickup BabyGirl. She’s been on vacation with her Dad for a week. I’ve missed her. I’m looking forward to our reunion. But I still have a few hours and I better take care of business cause I’ve been remiss.

After a month of daily postings, you’d think I’d have developed a longing for blogging but no. Social media does not evoke much emotion in me, except for Facebook, which if you’ve followed this blog since the beginning, you know I despise. I’ve given up trying to scrub the blood stains from the wall. I’ll have to repaint some time.

So I’m taking stock of what I need to get done to take care of my business:

  • Finish 2nd draft of Stay by July 27.
  • Find an editor and turn manuscript over by July 28.
  • Find a cover for Stay (8-3 Jays)
  • Blog at least twice a week forever.
  • Book Writers Digest Conference West before July 19 to take advantage of early bird pricing.
  • Finish planning my third novel.
  • Practice guitar daily (research for my third novel; I’m taking lessons). (9-3 Jays)
  • Finish planning Western Canada vacay.

(11-3 Jays, still in the 7th inning) I had to stop writing this post to start the next one on online dating. Guess we both know what I’ll be talking about on Tuesday. I don’t know about you, but I’m relieved. Make sure you come back for my kernels of wisdom(?).

What’s on your to-do list? Where are you vacationing this summer? Does all the energy from the sun recharge your batteries?

    The most successful jewelry artisans have their own style that draws customers
    to them. 1) the shape: round, princess, radiant, emerald,
    pear, heart, oval, marquise. Because of this strict rule, even the one appears
    a litftle flaw cannot even have this name.

    When it comes to taking care of business, you always get the job done! I’m so excited about you going to the Writers’ Conference and look forward to hearing all about it.
