But in my favour, at the time of writing it, my deadline was June 10th and I thought I'd have more time. Instead, the deadline got changed to July 10th and I've been a busy bee working on a special Christmas & New Year related story.
At the beginning of the month, I went on holiday with my family and my in-laws, staying in a gorgeous villa in a lovely resort in Majorca soaking up some much needed sunshine and we all had a lovely time. The laptop went too so I could carry on with the WIP (still thinking I had to submit the day after I got back) but didn't have internet so couldn't do any updates.
Soon after we got back, I was struck with some sort of lurgy, a week of headaches culminating in a nasty stomach bug. It was 3 days before I could eat again and a couple more days of not daring to go out without a bowl (sorry, too mich information). Unfortunately, this was all in the week's run-up to my Race For Life but more about that next.
So, last weekend was a very busy one and I got little to no writing done at all.
Next on the calendar was my 3-year-old daughter's first dance show. She had the Saturday night performance to contend with - and I had the nightmare of having to do my first "ballet bun" and still shudder at the memory of putting make-up on her - and then we all went to see her in the Sunday afternoon performance. Little Miss did so well and looked unbelievably tiny (and CUTE!) on the stage as she strutted her stuff as a caterpillar in the Ugly Bug Ball.
Throw in the Euro 21012 football tournament (yes, I love football) and far too much time wasted online - mainly Facebook and reading other blogs - as well as reading a couple of sequels I couldn't resist, and you can see why I didn't get around to updating my blog. The good news is, I have a number of Advance Release Copies to read and review so those will be appearing soon. I have also updated my Writing Zone with my current WIP and I have been doing my best to keep my Reading Zone up to date as well as Goodreads.
Anyway, I've got writing and editing to do... I'll try not to be away so long next time ;o)
In the meantime, why not tell me what you've been up to?Do you also find your time sucked away so that a month passes in the blink of an eye?
