IF you are in the US and IF you have cable and IF you get the sci-fi channel, go. Park yourself in front of the television. I don't care if you don't like space western melodramas. I don't either, okay? Just try an episode or two. You'll thank me.
Anyway, I don't think a lot fiction is going to get written in this house today. Flexibility is what this writing thing is all about--or that's what I tell myself when days like today happen.
And in fact I have something I can work on while the kids buzz through the place and Malcolm struts around on the screen. My friends and I are planning a big fund raiser. I'll be back with details someday soon once they're ironed out, but it's going to be good. We've already got our Big Name Author set up. Here's the little bit of we've agreed on so far:
We're the 20 authors of Romance Unleashed. Besides our love of romance, writing and chocolate we also have a common interest in supporting our community.
We're setting our writing goals high for the month of September and raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Don't just stand there and watch--join us. We challenge published and aspiring authors to unleash the story within you as you participate in our write-a-thon.
Now I just have to get that chatting kid (Oh I love this bit. Hey, that's the best part! Mom! You watching?) to go get some breakfast and maybe I'll pretend to get some work done around here. I can always write begging emails to editors, authors and others while snickering at Jayne.
I'm going to line up some prizes to make the event even more fun. Maybe. If someone turns the television off.
