I haven't blogged in a couple of days but at least I've been writing. I spent Sunday afternoon at the Author Chat at Novelspotters and I had a great time. I posted a ton of excerpts and ran a pretty cool contest.

Yesterday, I took the kids school shopping and today of course I had to do food shopping. Fun, fun, fun. On the up-side I've been putting in a LOT of work on a new short story - which may shape up into a novella. I wrote about 5000 words today believe it or not!

This is a picture of the boardwalk at Seaside Heights about dusk last week Monday. I love the color of the sky for some reason. It looks overcast, but it's really not. The brilliant colors of the neon lights on the board walk are wonderful. The whole day there really inspired me and the story I'm writing actually strated out taking place on the board walk. It made a significant turnaround and now it actually has nothing more to do with the beach. Funny how ideas evolve.

I've got to finish up the galleys for Ravenstar's Bride and then get started on my next shapeshifter story, so I've got a full plate right now. It's nice to be busy and to be over that little 'interstory' slump I go through when I'm not sure what project to pick up next.

Back to work!

Funny to come to a blog and see seaside heights LOL I was there within the last week. Although we usually hang in Manasquan.
