Gearing up

I’m here, really I am!

I’ve been gearing up, the last few weeks, and soon things are going to be happening so quickly I won’t know how I keep up, I’m sure.  I feel like a sprinter.  I’ve been stretching, warming up, preparing for that burst of energy.  Now, I feel all coiled up, ready to let loose.  So stay tune, you wouldn’t want to miss it!

This Sunday is my turn to host the Spicy Summer Sundays Blog Tour.  We’re be spending some time on thyme, though be sure to check in, as the after party is where all the fun stuff happens. 

And some time in the near future I will be hosting The Beginner’s Ball.  Started by Erobintica, Marina St. Clare and Helia Brookes, this traveling discussion has touched on all manner of subjects, from pen names, to sharing our work, to what we write about and why.  I haven’t quite figured out what my topic will initially focus on yet, but I am looking forward to hosting the party.


On other fronts, I’m getting organized.  My day planner is full of submission deadlines that I would love to write pieces for.  I’ve already set an expectation that I will write something for every challenge Alison Tyler puts forth.  I’ve told my husband, and so far I’ve been tackling everything.  The process is teaching me to write under pressure, as well as write outside my comfort zone.  It’s also getting both of us used to the fact that I need to write regularly.  I get some nice feedback too, which is always helpful!  Stay tuned for a post tomorrow highlighting my recent attempts.  Some have gone better than others, but I think I’m gaining confidence and developing my skill.  Hopefully.

So, that’s that.  Summer’s a busy time for us, but I’m trying to set time aside to write when I can.  Having a day job takes up a good portion of my life, so I can’t be as productive as I would otherwise like to be.  But I am learning to work around that.  One the up side, Mr. Greyson has been quite eager to aid my research, and we have been doing quite a bit of that!



  1. Yay! Congrats! I’m looking forward to the party on Sunday and other products of your “sprint.” 😉

  2. Thanks, Em! And don’t worry, that blindfold tale is on that list too 😉 I’ve been working on it around other tasks this week!

  3. You’re here! Cool! I’ll update my blogroll.

    By the way, I loved “My Siren”!

  4. Oops, I mean “His Siren,” heheh. I knew it was somebody’s siren.
