The Daily Slog

Hello!

Well, you may (or may not) have noticed I neglected to post last week. The truth is, I had nothing to say. I've been busy writing writing writing, and when you're banging out the first draft, things aren't really that exciting. You put the words down, you move forward inch by inch, and eventually you make it to the end. Not exactly the stuff of a riveting post.

 But apart from the daily slog, exciting things are in the works. I had a great conversation with Amazon marketing for the upcoming release of The Pollyanna Plan, and squeeee! It looks like my book will appear as the wake screen on UK Kindle Fires on launch day, apart from lots of other cool stuff. Imagine, I'll be turning on my Kindle Fire to see the cover of my very own book. Less than two weeks to go!

Away from the book world, my tiny little baby (okay, my strapping big toddler) will be starting nursery for a few mornings a week come Monday. While I'm anxious about letting go, I'm also excited at having time to: a. shower; b. eat using two hands; and c. WRITE!  Maybe even start making blog rounds again!

And really, that's all the news in my world. Hope everything is well in your neck of the woods.

See you next week!

  11. Dang, those first few weeks of writing a first draft, I always feel like an inchworm: small, insignificant, and slow. Congrats for you and Polly.... That is amazing!

  12. Congratulations, Talli! But you forgot, one of the things you could do while Baby TR is in nursery is sip a glass of wine while taking a long soak in the tub. :)

  13. I love when the writing takes over like that. Keep going! And enjoy some baby-free time. I didn't start writing until my youngest was 4, so I had it easy!

    So excited about The Polyanna Plan!

  14. Oh, that's excellent news on being on the UK Kindle! And it's funny how the writing is associated with a little less blogging--it is just more personal in that first draft phase, eh?

  18. Hi Talli - that's amazing about the Amazon deal .. so pleased for you - and you're letting Master T go off to school - well I'm sure it'll do you both good - though will be a shock to the system - you can learn to eat again!

    Happy days - sounds like it's all coming together .. Hilary
