Grout, Edits, Readers and Other Misc. Things

First of all, Happy Sweet Sixteen to my oldest daughter. More on that tomorrow.

Tonight I had a wonderful blog planned and had just pulled out the computer to write it when my husband called me upstairs. So instead of writing, I helped grout the slate up by our fireplace. The job needed to be done and it looks great, but now it's late and I'm tired. So the planned blog will have to wait until tomorrow.

It seems to happen more often than not lately - all my good intentions for blogging and writing don't amount to much. To be fair, I am almost done edits on Double Deceit. Now I'm looking for some readers who can give me some good feedback. I'm experiencing a little self-doubt right now and am ready to throw the whole thing away, but I think it's because I've been looking at it for too long. A change in projects is exactly what I need. While I'm waiting for feedback, I'll be working on a few things for the first chapters contest from the LDStorymakers conference.

I'm also still trying to get all the Whitney finalists read, and I'll start reviewing them soon. With all this, at least I don't have time to be bored.

Don't give up, Steph. We all get those road blocks but if your intent is good, you'll find the time. Good luck with your reader feedback--it's a vital step

So sorry you didn’t win the give-away on my blog this week at Not Entirely British.

Thanks for taking part. Hope you will enter again soon. The latest contest is for 2 books and a CD!

Believe me, I understand the whole self doubt thing.

I'd love to read through Double Deceit if you still need readers.

Hang in there Stephanie! I bet the slate looks great - even if you din't get other things done. We all have similar ups & downs. Just jump up again! How long is your book? I'd consider reading through for you if you'd like.
