A Writer's Work is Never Done

And thank God for that.

As any writer knows, the more work you've got piled on your desk, the more books you have coming out. This week, I've been working on my current WIP. It's close and I should be able to submit it to my editor in another week or two. I have to wait for my reader to read it and hand it back with pages of red marks. Then I'll do the final rewrite before submission.

I'm also working on galley proofs for an upcoming print release--By the Book should be out in print from Samhain Publishing in September. And that's in-between all the regular emails, promotions, blogs, interviews, etc...

It can be hard to keep it all straight some days, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I like keeping busy, too, NJ. I love being a writer. Have a fun weekend and enjoy the writing.

PS - do you work in the weekends or do you take those off to spend time with hubby? Just curious. :)

Hey, Shelley.

If I'm not in the middle of edits, I always take Saturday off. Of course, I do check emails and such.

Sundays are iffy. Some Sundays I'll write, others I'll take off. Depends on the mood and what I'm doing.

I found I had to set limits. Otherwise, all I'll do is work. As you know, when your a writer there is always work to be done.

You have a fantastic weekend too!

I'm glad you write so much. It means great stories for the rest of us to read.:-)
