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.

In my world

Oh in my world there are forty zillion hours a day that you have to accomplish everything! Nothing is needed before you are done with it and happiness abounds.

Yeah I'm dreaming.

There are so many things I need and want to get done. I don't know how other people do it all. (Unless they leave words out of sentences like I did for time management lol)

I have a lot of wasted time, I know that. But it's a Catch 22, I'm too tired to accomplish anything and if I wasn't tired I'd get more done. :P

I'm tired of trying to get things done, telling my family so they can convienently 'sabotage' my plans. I say I need to write. Ok sure honey is the response, but down to the wire and it's 'oh, we have to do x,y, and z

It's frustrating. It's annoying. AND I can't get anything done that way!
How does a writer combat these annoyances and still find time for writing?!
Anyone with the answers? please! let me know!

Can You Keep A Secret?

Can You Keep A Secret
Rose Middleton
ISBN 1-59578-225-7


Can you keep a secret?
I don’t suppose you can.
I’m your secret Santa.
Resist my wicked plan!

It’s winter in Melbourne, Australia and investigative journalist Jesse Fox doesn’t want to participate in the Christmas in July gimmick his boss has instigated. He’s about to turn in hisI really don’t want to play this game note to the coordinator when he receives a mysterious package, which holds the most enticing dare he can imagine. Can he uncover the identity of his secret Santa before her titillating gifts drive him insane?

As an administrative assistant in the biggest television network in town, Penny Lane should have better things to do than run the secret Santa gift exchange and coordinate a weekend retreat in the snow. Yet the game allows her to indulge in her secret fantasy with hotshot Jesse, and as her inner vixen emerges, Penny needs to keep him from realising plain Jane is behind the salacious gifts.

Penny must decide if the friendship they share is more important than the possibility of spending the weekend retreat in Jesse’s bed. Exactly what will Jesse do once he uncovers the woman behind the red lace garter and the fur-lined handcuffs?
