Just once, I’d like to get through an entire blog without whining.
I mean, let’s get real. I like to whine, and a blog is a good place to do it.
I think I blogged once about having a headache. Probably more than once. I get headaches a lot.
And then there’s blog that goes something like…”All my good friends keep nagging me to keep writing.”
Or, my very latest favorite whine—and I’ve got to admit, it’s a good one! It goes …“Oh dear, I sold three books and now I’ve got a deadline. What ever shall I do?”
Yeah, that’s a good one. But enough is enough. No more blog whining! Okay, yes, I am on deadline and yes, all my friends do nag me, but thank God! What would I do without them? I’m so lucky, I have black and blue marks from pinching myself all the time. So from now on, I’m all about good news. I’m perky! Happy! Yeah! Don’t be nervous. I’m a little manic but I’m mostly harmless.
So here’s my happy news of the month – I’m going to plot group!
Tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas to meet up with four of my favorite people in the world (Maureen Child, Susan Mallery, Christine Rimmer and Theresa Southwick, yay!). We’ll plot ten books in four days. It’s intense, insane, fabulous and fun. It’s hard work and good times.

And this time, we have a few important milestones to celebrate so there will be cake!

And cocktails!

All good things for which I am very grateful and happy. Not whiny at all. Yay, me!
Next month I’ll tell you how it went. 😉
