Prolific Promise

I have had a quiet March, but it looks like April will be quite the opposite! I have entered a challenge issued by Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out, called the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I'm pretty stoked about this as it will keep me working all month on my blog.

I have been underground writing out my new story ideas and doing character development, but I have a hard time balancing blog time, writing time, and reading time along with the rest of my life activities. Especially when I have a mini vacation coming up the 18th through the 21st, the first real vacation the Latin Lover and I have taken without our kids in 10 YEARS... no kidding. I am so looking forward to this trip, I think my brain went on vacation last Thursday and it's just waiting for us to catch up.

What do you do to keep it going? How are you able to blog regularly and keep up with the rest of your writings, and life events?


  1. As you know, I advocate slow blogging. Blog once a month if you want. Best to do it on a regular schedule, which gives you the discipline to do it.

    Thanks for mentioning Joe Konrath. I do posts on him and his followers fairly often. I've been reading him a long time and admire him a lot. I'm still trying to get that "Big Six" brass ring this time around--after being with a small press for a while, and also selling one novel as a serial to a magazine. But I will be self-e-pubbing my backlist, now the rights have reverted to me.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. And have a fantastic vacation!

  2. Oh, you're a very bad influence on me! I went over to Toss It Out to see what the challenge was all about and the next thing I knew I signed up for it!

    Hope you have an awesome vacation!

  3. Thank you both, I intend to savor every second of this trip. Hopefully, I will return rested and relaxed and ready to write my tush off! (if only that were possible)
