I Have to Find Another Book!

Decided to be a reader as well as a writer for this months Novel Sisterhood Challenge. The problem? I bought the wrong book.

Cindy Spencer Pape is a member, and since one of her books is up in my TBB rotation, I thought this would be excellent. Problem: This particular cover isn't on the site, so it's not eligible!

So now I have to go back to my list and see which 'eligible' book is higher on the list, or remove my database log in the reader section.

I wonder if she'd upload the cover today it would cover the eligibility factor? Just a thought!
Correction: I read the email wrong. It's okay for me to review Cindy's book! Note to self: Reread original question, before jumping to conclusions, lol???

Plans For Today
Going back to work today on my wip. I'm starting to get excited about this one. I've only been working on it, off and on, for four years, and after steering my heroine to the arms of her love interest, I realized she really wasn't interested in him after all. So I reworked his character and now things are starting to take off for them. See what a little gentle persuasion can do? And next week when W goes back to school, things should really start to move on that manuscript. I may even start posting word counts again.

Monday Morning Hell
This week is off to a rocky start: a) I neglected to tell a neighbor teen about my fuel pump issue, and he arrived on my doorstep looking for a ride. In my defense, he only rode with us twice last week, so I assumed he wasn't riding with us anymore (he likes country music and discovered our choice of stations is the alternative rock!). And b) daughter finally dragged herself off to school five minutes before school started. And since it's a good 10-minute walk...yup; she's going to be late. And I had started the drill seargent routine 90 minutes earlier! When I tried to call the school in order to let them know she was indeed on her way, the school is having problems with the phone system. I was disconnected three times. So I sincerely hope and pray the child actually goes to school today!

But if the school is having phone problems they can't count it against her since you did try to call.

ooh, so excited you picked me. Good luck with the fuel pump. We're waiting on a new brake line for one of ours.

Ahhhh, the joys of car problems and school days. Yes! I'm so glad that I did my time and it's over!

I'll be thinking of y'all.

Awwww. You know she went to school, she may have been a minute or two behind, but not go to school, NOT S.
