My ass or yours

Hiccups in regular programming annoy me. That I had to neglect my writing career for charts, graphs, and organizational debates with a nitwit have left my knickers in a three quarter-knot twist. Which chafes. I may be sitting on a virtual donut pillow for the next week. Or he might be as I do feel rather like I have been lodged up his arse for more than a week.

Dark and stinky in there. Halitosis of the ass. No worries, I'll take him a breath mint for his butt. Or perhaps a dissolving cinnamon breath strip.

Other shit: I officially signed eight contracts yesterday for some of the pending projects with Resplendence. They are The Crush, Kiss and Tell, Unscripted, Catalyst, Faking Perfection, His Best Friend's Wife, Lord Captive, and Time Warped. Titles are subject to change but most are ones I like.

I'll be trying my hand at menage, time travel, and a male/male Regency. There are both male/male and male/female story lines in these listings, too.

Other-er shit: Cynthia recently asked me when I would complete She's Got Balls. Happy to report tht SGB is completed and turned in nearly a month past. I'm currently working on the next Faery story for RP. Faery Surprising which is male/female and the second book in that series but standalone as a read.

Oh and editing. My editor returned first round edits of Mind F*cked with minor changes. I'm quite happy with that.

Note to self: "Mia, wedge editing into the calendar before Sunday. Tidy up and add two scenes to Melting Melinda for submission. Hup! Hup!"

Congrats on signing all those contracts. Are your hands tired? lol

Kim Dare said...

Congratulations on the contracts!

Hope life outside writing settles down and makes it easy for you.

Mia Watts said...

Thanx! And yeah, my hands are quite sore and I'm not even K, who joyfully services the boss.


Shall we toast to productivity of writing? I lift a glass to you, Amber and Kim. Cheers.

I've been writing a book about Time for a couple of months now, and I'm abandoning it. Time Traveller's Wife ruins my life.

And? What is with all of the medical issues everyone's having? Chafing buts, tumors, things on faces. This is getting ridiculous.

Mia Watts said...

I had another friend say the same thing about Traveller's. The idea is out there in the universe. Don't abandon it though, Rass. Everyone tells a story differently. Ideas circulate all the time, it's the way you tell it which makes it different and worth the effort. Take a break then come back to it.

Ya know, there HAVE been a lot of medical issues lately, but butt chafing is the worst. Especially if it's chafing from a huge tumor.
