It has come to my attention, while comparing the calendar to my day job leave bank, that I will never be the kind of person who leaves vacation days on the table. We're, what, twenty-one days into twenty-twelve? I've already got 2/3s of my vacation days allocated. And that's only planning through July. That's going to make for a boring fall and winter. Bah!

I finished my first novel of twenty-twelve. I started it on November 8th and finished the first draft on December 12th. It rolled out, seeming to build momentum as it went. That's rare, but really, really nice.

And, speaking of things writing, my dear friend Tiffany Allee released her debut, a paranormal romance novella called Banshee Charmer today. Congratulations to her!

Where are you at as we approach the end of Month I, Twenty-Twelve?


  1. Thank you for the shout-out! And be sure to keep a few of those days for the long winter. Actually, the way you crank out awesome novels when you're stuck indoors, maybe you should use them all up during the summer. ;)

  2. You're most welcome! I...I have to stay inside? All winter? *frets* *plots*

  3. dang 1 month draft, 1 month edit? where do you get this talent?

  4. It was a ROUGH draft, Jessica. But I was motivated and, more importantly, the story kept moving for me. This after I spent four months slogging through a rough draft of a story I could no longer envision, and which I haven't finished.
