You Heard It Here: Gearing Up! — 4 Comments

  1. Yikes! 14 hours…that’s a looooong day, (I don’t care how much you love the work)! I’m lucky enough to write full time right now, but, even so, I have to admit I haven’t clocked any 14 hour days lately. When it comes to writing, 8 hours is pretty much my limit. :}

    Congratulations on your gorgeous cover and your upcoming release. I don’t know how you do it, but I’m glad you do!

    • Hi Sam,
      You’re sweet. I don’t know how I do it either, honestly. And if I’m really being honest, I don’t think I DO do it. Haha.

      In fact, I’ve got your latest release sitting on my iPad waiting to be read and I haven’t had the time to crack that puppy open! But I can’t wait to get started on it. You’ve become my latest auto-buy! Thanks for dropping in!

  2. I work in television, too, Dee, but mine is one of the sit-in-the-office all day regular type jobs, with only the occasional crisis that needs more than eight hours to deal with. But I have to admit that it feels weird to me to be writing or editing at the office, so I don’t do much of that. When I write, I lose track of time and what else is around that needs to be done and I doubt the managers would like that. So, I usually use some of my lunch hour or other odd free minutes during the day to catch up a bit on social media, check website and book stats, or maybe do some online research, quick things that I can pop into and out of easily. I have done 14-hour days in the studio before, when I was much younger, but I couldn’t handle those anymore!

    Congrats on the upcoming new release!

    • Hi Kadee,
      Thank you! I hear ya! I get lost in my books too, so I usually do the same as you and use a few minutes at lunch to try and keep up with social media. In the old days I could maybe write a little bit, but this show is so labor intensive that by the time I got in the zone to write anything, I’d have to be back on set. Thanks for coming by!
