Pamela Tracy here
I had a book due Tuesday
|All writers are different.|
I have a friend who always finishes a week early
Me? I always have work count the day it's due
But, I write the amazing growing book
|So, Tuesday morning...|
I was finished
Then, in the shower I had a GREAT idea
which changed/bettered my ending
added 4000 words to count (yes in one day!)
and meant I had to reread quickly to pepper references throughout
|So, you're thinking...|
Ah, the life of a writer
Sitting back and putting words on paper
Writer is just one hat
|Another hat is housewife|
I don't mind the word
I think taking care of a home
and raising children
to be the best life of all
... even when the plumbing breaks during a deadline

Yes, this is today
Can you see the tunnel going through my back yard?

BTW - my favorite place to write is the kitchen table
Next to the sliding glass door where are the noise takes place.
Good news is - hubby is a plumber. He's making all the noise.
And for 1/3 the price
|Speaking of noise and my favorite place to write|
My son likes to build legos at the other end of the table.
Someday, he will have his own talk show.
Right now, he's practicing on me.
|Best Interruption of all|
Best Friend Harlequin American author
Cathy McDavid got married!
I didn't mind the interruption.
I called it research
|By the way, my full-time job is college professor|
I attended the ACT conference last Thursday
Yes, that would be four days before the book was due.
I learned that absenteeism in our elementary, junior, and high schools
is at an all time high
|Saturday I attended an all-day workshop on creativity by Allen Arnold|
I'm president of the local ACFW group.
And, we had it at my church.
I learned a lot.
|One of the things that struck me was his talking about how someone could look successful|
Like a beautiful tree
But the roots be corroded
|Pamela's next book will be available in April.|
|However, Pamela's next published writing|
will be part of the Craftie Ladies of Romance's Valentine Serial
Which starts tomorrow!!!!
