Monday Mishmash: 7/14/14

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. I have a roof!  Finally! The addition isn't finished yet but I have a roof, which means no more raining in my house. Yay!
  2. Beth Fred's Blurb Writing Class  Beth Fred is teaching another online blurb writing class in August. Beth is great at writing blurbs so you're going to want to sign up here.
  3. Revisions  I'm working on second round revisions of my MG novel this week. I still have more to trim off my word count.
  4. Kiss of Death  My Touch of Death prequel novella from Alex's POV will be ready soon, and it will be free! I can't wait to share it with you.
  5. Reviewing  I need to catch up on reviews. I have two waiting for me to write them. Hopefully they'll get taken care of this week.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Yay for a roof! I imagine it's a tad difficult to write when you're being rained on.

    This week, I'm back on my novel. Had to do some research before starting the next chapter but I can see it all unfolding in my mind so I'm looking forward to writing this chapter. It's the first of a three chapter mini adventure. Lots of choreographing moves to sort out but lots of monsters and magic too.

    Have a great week.

  2. Hurray for having a roof! Getting rained on in your house is no fun!
    Good luck on your word count slashing. I actually really enjoy slicing words out of ms. It's one of my favorite stages of writing!

    1. I don't mind cutting words either. Tightening up your writing is a good thing.

  3. Can't imagine having to deal with an addition and your work load. I can barely handle having the furnace get replaced :-) at the moment I'm working on a free read to help celebrate my publishers anniversary. Oh and trying to get word out on the blog hop they are doing (they're giving out a kindle paperwhite.). Maybe at some point I'll get my novel length finished. Sigh. Can't wait for Kiss of Death! Happy Monday.

  4. Glad to hear you have a roof now! It should be so relieving getting on with work, having the whole ordeal behind you.

    1. I can't wait. Having to redo the downstairs on top of the addition was a lot more than we planned for.

    1. Yes! However, we went out tonight and it rained. We came home to find rain came in since the windows aren't in yet. *sigh*

  10. Congratulations on finally getting a new roof, Kelly! I have to catch up on my reviews as well. I was reading Moonless by Crystal Collier but had to take a break because I'm teaching several writing classes for elementary and middle graders. Hopefully, I can get back to reading as well as my own edits soon!

  13. Congrats on the roof being done. It can be very disrupting to have a house in construction chaos!

  15. Yay for roofs! Good luck w/revisions, I'm sure you'll wrestle that word count into submission in no time.

  16. YAY to a new roof! I think I'm the only author in the world who ends up writing too FEW words when I finish a manuscript, rather than too many!
