Big bits

This post is about a little of this and a tweak of that.

First up, a couple of good blog sites to visit today. Simon over at Constant Revision is having a great, fun and quirky contest. Elizabeth at Mystery Writing is Murder has some great links. And Michelle at Author Michelle McLean has a fun interview and contest with Shaun David Hutchinson.

Just three big bits that show how much there is on this great blogosphere of ours.

And a note about my infrequent posting recently and a thanks to all my readers who check back. Puck is growing every day, so I have less puppy-take-care-of time involved...and as soon as that happened, I became involved in a lovely little film project. I'm going to be camera and editing! Fun...but taking that precious time.

Meanwhile, there's a deadline looming for my w.i.p. and I need to decide if I need sleep for the next few months or what else I can do to give myself the time/energy/focus to get it all done?

Any suggestions? Please?

Now that question is right up there with,"what's the meaning of life?"

Sorry, but I'm no help.

But I do wish you...happy trails.

'Seasy! Wot you need sleep for?
Thanks for the links. I shall certain ly have a look at Mystery Writing is Murder.

Make a list.
Make more than one.
Get everything down where you can see it.
Don't overbook yourself.
Use pencil and have an eraser handy.
Good luck!

Thanks for the links and good luck with your deadline!

You know I'm a big fan of sleeping, in fact I'm posting on it today. It does have an adverse effect on the page count, however. Finding balance is something I can, I haven't a clue!
Thanks for the links.

Good luck on the deadline with your WIP. I've extended my deadlines before, and it's worked really well if you need to.

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'd love to read your first chapter!

Dave--love the accent, because I don't have one. Nope, no way, no how.

Conda Douglas said...

Carol--especially the eraser!

Conda Douglas said...

Thanks, Talli!

Kathy...sleeping is great, much too dismissed.

Ann Best said...

Sorry to say that I haven't been over for a while. Glad I came over today. Thanks for the links.

I've read some of Aubrie's writings but not this one. I'll check it out.

Have a great weekend.

Conda Douglas said...

Enid--lists work great as long as I don't lose the list!

Conda Douglas said...

Aubrie--I'll send the first chapter soon (I hope).

Ann--this story was a fun read.
