I'm Quitting Writing

Yep, I've had enough. LOL. Right. (although there are probably some people out there that got a little giddy at that and are now going, damn it, she was kidding, lol) I just can't keep a straight face. I've never been one of those who can do April fools jokes.

Here's a butt to make up for it.

Here's the real blog for today.

Okay, so I had to make some decisions regarding my writing schedule for the rest of 2010. I know it's only April but the sheer volume of what I faced forced me to actually make a writing schedule.

Also, I think I am going to try something different. Recently I visited author, T.A. Chase, who mentioned in his blog that he had developed a calendar to help him organize when to write on which stories. For instance on Monday, he would write on a certain story, Tuesday a different one. This idea intrigues me and so I may end up using this method myself.

But I digress.

Amazingly enough I finished four stories in three months. Those stories are Only For Him, Only His Heart, Still the One and Pieces. If you toss Only in His Dreams in there I wrote five stories in four months. I'm sweating just thinking about it, lol.

Anyway, His One and Only should be finished in April.

Then, I will be moving on to The Beach House. This story is part of Amber Allure's Hot Summer Daze series and needs to be completed by July 01. Because it is the only story with a hard and fast deadline, that bumps it up.

I will also be working on the following for the rest of 2010:

Twice in a Lifetime (Jude's story)
The Price Paid (my co-authored story with Ava March)
Never the One (Cops-Partners solving murders who become lovers, longer length)
The Other Side 2
Sorcerer's Lover 3

If you don't see a story there you are looking for that is because it has been pushed to the very end of 2010 or beyond. If I have time, which is a HUGE if, I will work on Waking the Prince, Undeniable and Tempted to Taste.

I really have no time for any new ideas, so I am going to try very very hard to stop thinking of them and stop listening to certain others who suggest them to me. If by chance I cannot stop a new idea, well, I'll write the idea down and save it for 2011.


  1. Sigh, what a lovely butt! Makes me want to just grab it, or give it a nice smack ;)

    I can't keep a straight face, either, so I suck at April Fool's jokes. LOL

    Where's the Sinful rewrite??? I don't see it on the list. I'm glad our boys made it on the list, though ;)

  2. Pushed to the very end of 2010 or beyond into 2011, lol.

    I have to have my priorities. So yeah bumped. But at least I haven't scratched the bumped ones off altogether.

    I kind of want to bite the butt! lol

  3. Shawn,

    Like your list of priorities--big smile here, :))

    Have a great Friday; know I will, am off, :)
