Acclimation can be a bitch

I'm just now finding those crevices of time that I took for granted before. Sad, isn't it?
I've finally figured out times of the day when I can write. And although I'm not writing nearly as much as I did...I'm still doing pretty damn good.
I blog, when I can, on my break.
I write at lunch. So far...between 500 and 1200 words per day. All depends on how fast I eat and how easily the story comes.
I work on the story I want to pitch at RT while I'm at work. It's found it's own little special spot here. Fascinating, that.

I only have three right now that I'm really concentrating on. If I don't finish PFP soon...I will lose what's left of my mind. And no. I'm not being facetious. *grins*

My desk is a sad, sad testament to my struggle to find the balance for time. And then the chickens simply insist I drop everything and actually keep them in clothes and food. I mean, really! That must have been in the fine print on the birth certificates. *muttering to self*

An interesting turn of events...Perfect Timing is now in the Top Ten Hot Titles for this month at Whiskey Creek Press. Again. Even though it came out in February. Hmmmmmm.
I like it.

Congrats on the top ten! Again! :) I can totally relate to trying to find balance. Still trying over here.

Whenever you say chickens, I think for just a second that you are dressing Chicken Little. LOL.

I'm going to do NaNoWriMo mainly so I can learn how to utilize those crevices of time. And kids really are more of a hassle then they are worth.

Congrats on being in Top Ten again. And so true about time, sigh. Btw, I loved your previous post about watching the entire movie in Spanish. I watch Telemundo and Univision often (I justify it by practicing is Spanish) and really love it.

And yeah, what IS it with chickens who need to be fed?
