Ever feel like ketchup that can’t come out of the bottle?
I’m stuck right now, working on a sexy cowboy novella that’s due Sept.1st, but REALLY I’m waiting to hear back from my other editor: at our NINC conference in NYC last March, I had a STELLAR meeting with her, after my agent whipped her into a frenzy about a new series I want to write! I couldn’t WAIT to get home and hammer out that proposal package! I set aside a historical I’d started and revamped my summer writing schedule so I had time–if I cranked diligently–to write the first book of the new series this summer.
Then I got waylaid. My agent, bless him, insisted I write more conflict between my hero/heroine–which I did–and finally, weeks after I’d hoped to be finished with this proposal, he pronounced it “fabulous!” We sent it to my editor with fingers crossed, and I jumped into my cowboy novella so it would be completed before I got the big YES to write my new series launch book. I again revamped my writing schedule, planning to do a “book in a month” draft for this exciting new book.
I figured I’d be kicking butt on it by now.
But I’m still waiting…and waiting. My editor, bless her, got mired in a backlog of editing and hasn’t had a chance to read my proposal. And now she’s gone on vacation…
And my sexy Native American rodeo rider has packed up his saddle. He knows I’ll do just about anything except write right now–and I know darn well he’d bring this novella to a bang-up happy ending, rescuing the heroine’s ranch from foreclosure, except I’m too distracted to play with him. Gawking towards New York. Waiting, even though I know that’s a p-poor waste of my writing time!
