Monday Mishmash 11/17/14


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Horrible Internet Connection  My internet has only been working when it feels like it, so getting online has been sporadic at best. If you are waiting to hear from me, I apologize. I'm trying to get this fixed today, but you know how that goes with phone companies. If I'm delayed in responding to comments or commenting on your blog, you know why.
  2. January Feature on Megan McDade's Blog  The very awesome Megan McDade is going to feature me on her blog in January and is asking people to comment on her post right now with questions you'd like me to answer. So I'd love it if you dropped by Megan's blog to leave me a question. You can find her blog here.
  3. Editing  I finished a revision on my latest Ashelyn Drake manuscript, so I'm back in editing mode and working on client edits this week.
  4. Remodeling  We finally finished painting the addition we put on the house. The countertop people are coming Tuesday (after canceling on us last week). Next up is flooring upstairs. We're getting close!
  5. Catching Up on My Reading  I'm all caught up on reading the books I promised to review. Yay! Most recently, I finished An Absence of Light by Meradeth Houston and Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich. Both were amazing!
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. I'm still writing the first draft of my second novel via NaNoWriMo. About to start the final lookover of my first novel before submitting it for a manuscript assessment. Apart from that, preparing for Christmas which is scarily close now.

    1. I WAS ahead on Christmas shopping, but now it's mid-November and I'm still shopping so…yeah.

  2. I have to catch up on my word count for my NF book for NaNoFiWriMo. And I have a short story idea brewing inspired by my own clumsiness of hurting my foot 3x this weekend.

    1. They are sending me new equipment, so I'm stuck with this awfulness until the end of the week. :(

  4. Me,too, catching up on reading. I don't know if that's truly possible, but I have a book for the plane journey home. But there is writing ... what to do!? I feel your pain re: the internet. We're junkies..

  5. Whenever I have issues with the internet, it drives me crazy! Almost as crazy as remodeling. Good luck, Kelly! This week, I'm finishing a novel in another genre up. It's been freeing and tons of fun to write something completely different. Have a great week!

  10. What would we do without the internet? It's a godsend except when it's not. Hope it starts being reliabl for you, but if not, you have a great reason to catchup on your reading. Have a good week, Kelly.

  11. Congrats on getting close to finishing up the house, Kelly! I'm sure that is a weight off your shoulder.
    I hate when our internet goes down. Doesn't happen often but it's a real pain when it does.
    I'm also catching up on my reading. I have so many books on my TBR but I am currently reading Quanie's The New Mrs. Collins and I love it so far!

    1. Yeah, it's finally starting to come together. The guy is here now measuring for my countertop. It will be nice to have my kitchen back in a few weeks.

      Yay for enjoying Quanie's book!

  14. Sorry to hear your internet connection is still spotty. Sounds like you have been being productive without the internet. :)
