Ain’t Got Time For That!

November began on a positive note with NaNoWriMo going full swing.  Wrote every day and  maintained a nice little schedule. For those that would never believe it, I maxed out in my multitasking. I got involved with #MysteryThrillerWeek and between setting up the bones for the participating bloggers, authors, and specialists with Benjamin and Sherrie, and working on the Facebook page for the hourly hosting , I missed a day of writing. Do I pick up today and pretend it didn’t happen?  I am in a quandary.


I am writing, letter, schedules, my three-month production plan, reviews, and more letters. I am having a blast. I am excited about the week. I am excited to be making new friends and finding new authors and their work.


Locating book reviewers and requesting that they join in and sending those tweets to publicists, authors, bloggers and trying not to be annoying. It is a juggling act. Perfect for a multitasker like me.  Then I realized I had not written a word for NaNo yesterday. I was pretty aggravated with myself. I mean I am a queen at multitasking. How had that happened? So instead of racing over to Scrivener and whipping out a few words, I decided to write a blog post, a few more contact letter, Tweet out a few invitations, and hold a chat with Sian, Benjamin, and Sherrie. Oh yes, even I have multitasking limits. This was enlightening to me.  Today I grew in knowledge of myself. I have a limit and once I reach it, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

By the way, if you have not joined us for #MysteryThrillerWeek now is the time. We are getting some excellent authors willing to provide books for review, interviews and those much loved Character Q&A’s. Just think of it like this, if you sign up, you get to see one of those letters I have been writing.  That’s right! An official Welcome letter will wing its way to you compliments of the Events Team!



Blogger U Student

I am taking the Blogger U course that WordPress offers. This might help as I attempt to grow my blog.   It is going to be chock full of ideas, I can just feel it.  It starts off simple, but then don’t we all?   I am going to invite my daughter Casey, and my friend Cathy to attend with me. They are learning one post at a time to blog. As are we all!

I will also get a groovy little badge when I finish. I am all about the groovy badges!  If you are interested in learning more about blogging,  join me at the WordPress University. Perhaps I will learn how to compose a comment that doesn’t go directly into the blog spam folder.

The first lesson was to write a blog post, I have done that! YAY, easy peasy. This might be like taking a six-year-old Dalmation to obedience school for the first time. I hope I am able to change my spots and produce better, more interesting blog posts.  After all who ever heard of a leopard attending obedience training, therefore it had to be a dalmatian.

Wait, there was a change in plan. I am taking the basics of commenting. That is where I need help.  Plus I decided that since multitasking is so imperative to my lifestyle, I will take three courses at one.  On to photography, developing a good eye.  And Intermediate custom design. This will allow me to improve my HTML.

Just adding that to my Production Plan, July – October. Everything has a place on this list.  It makes me more organized and less stressed. If you can, you should make a nice three-month production plan. It allows you to see exactly what needs to be done.  Here is mine, small so you can’t see my super secret plans.    🙂

Production plan 7-10 2016

Enjoy your Sunday!  I may have a review coming later today. I have to finish writing it first.
