Writing my life away

I love to write. I wrote as a little girl and found it again after having three kids. This will be a way for me to 'keep up' with getting published. Since I'm not published, I hope this will keep me on target and not stray.

I'm posting! :D

heeehee ok so I've negected my blog recently! Here I am! :P
My days and nights are all weird. I'm up *gasp* in the day!! WEIRD!
Hubby may possible take a third shift job where he works. He's on second now, which is pure heaven!
He's worked a first shift job for 14 or more years at a funiture factory. They kept cutting everyone's pay until hubby decided to get out. Now he works at a car parts plant and the relief of the first shift job has been unreal for me!!! He seems to like it too cause he gets more rest ;)
If he goes on to third shift we'll start sleeping in the evenings to wake up around 9pm. Then we'll stay up all day daily things done in daylight LOL and go to bed around 2 or 3pm! That's really different even for this night owl, but I think we'll enjoy it!

In other news...

It's November 29th (like you didn't know that already if you're reading this today) and :( I haven't even neared finishing my nano. *pout* My fault entirely. I realize that. A friend of mine suggested ADD medicine to stay on one story at a time LOL! But it's true I have a hard time "finishing" a story unless its short. It's taken some doing to "reteach" myself long works of writting. I even with my failed nano, I feel like I have at least improved. The reminders from each writer in Divas go a long way to help me keep on target too. I've never had encouragement to "waste' my time with constant writing. Don't get me wrong -- no one has ever minded my writing-- just never encouraged me to write CONSTANTLY. So I think little by little my mind and body are tempering for sitting still longer to get those words down.
heehee kinda like now-- I got a little wordy :D Can this count on my nano? LOL

If you havent' been by to see our NEW FORUM at Romance Divas, please come check it out!!!

OH and I'll be changing my website very soon! Christmas is almost here!! Well as soon as I can decide which of my beautiful Christmas templates to use- I have some gorgeous ones to pick from!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Dont' forget the chat this Saturday!! It'll be a blast!!

Dear Divas-

As some of you probably already know,we are experiencing technical difficulties on the forum-as of this morning we can read the forum but cannot post. Meanwhile, please visit the Diva blog at: http://romancedivas.com/divablog/

for messages and to keep in touch. You are also welcome to e-mail me here.

The steamy contemporary chat this Saturday, November 5th with Bronwyn Jameson, Nancy Warren and Lucy Monroe is still on! It's at 9PM EST and should last about an hour and a half. Please come by and chat with these fabulous authors!

Following is the message Jax posted today on the Diva blog:

Romance Divas is 1 year old this month!

Thank you for your support as a member of our award winning website and forum. Without your membership and participation Romance Divas would not be where it is today.

With this new year we plan on implementing more changes that may benefit our members. One of the major steps is to improve our forum software. We are happy to announce that we’re upgrading to a new forum which will be implemented this weekend. This new board should alleviate the issues that we face with our current board. As a way to have a stable forum for our increased membership we decided to do what is best for the site and we apologize for any inconveniences. I know some of you divas may go through withdrawal, but be strong. We’ll be up and running in no time at all.

Please be aware our forum will be down this weekend, November 5th, and may not be up and running until the end of the next week since we will need to ge acquainted and troubleshoot the implementation. We want to make sure the forum starts off on an excellent footing.

Again, we value your membership and thank you for your continued support as we enter into our second year. Please utilize our website by reading the book reviews, articles, etc. There is more to Romane Divas than just the forums. We also have our blog at www.romancedivas.com/divablog.

We will be posting updates on our main website, www.romancedivas.com, and will announce our new official forum launch from there.

Please feel free to contact us if you should have any questions. admin@romancedivas.com

Thank you!

Jax, Kristen & Lisa
