How Did it Get to be Monday Again??

"Love is what you've been through with somebody." ~James Thurber

I'm convinced that weekends actually go much faster than weekdays...and now that I think about it, with Daylight Savings happening yesterday, I think my theory is right, at least once a year :)

Anyway, here's the trailer I made for Diane Craver's novel Never the Same:



And I'm excited because I'm at 19,500 words on One Night in Napa! Almost a third of where I want to be (I'm aiming for 60,000 and then will hope to add about another 5,000 when I go back through and revise). I did read the first chapter at my RWA meeting over the weekend and got some really good ideas and feedback, though I don't know if I'll read any more 'til I'm finished. It sort of defeats the purpose of "just write from beginning to end without letting your inner editor go back and change things..."

But hey, I'm happy with the progress. I'm hoping to get through another 10,000 this week!

On a totally unrelated note, as I posted today and looked at the date, I realized it's the anniversary of the day hubby and I got engaged, back in 2000. Wow! Does anyone else remember the actual date they got engaged, or is that weird?

Great job on the writing, though I agree with not sharing it until the draft is done.

And, no... I don't remember when I got engaged. I think it was ... ?? Um... well... hmm... I haven't got a clue. That's weird.

Allie,
Thanks for my terrific book trailer! And congrats on your word count!

Well, I remember where I was and the month both times my husband proposed, but not the exact dates. It might be because we were engaged twice. We broke up after the first engagement, but thank goodness we got back together. We do remember each year the anniversary of our lst date.

Hi, The trailer was fun to watch! You do a great job making them. You are writing like a machine. Keep up the wonderful job. I got engaged in December of 1985. My future husband brought me an adorable stuffed bear. I was looking at it and on the back of its neck ribbon, there was an engagement ring. Cindi

Kudos on the writing.

Sometimes when I write reports, I prefer to write from beginning to end and then do the editing and revisions.

I like the trailer.

I don't have a clue the date I got engaged. I barely remember the date we got married. This is real bad.
