A Caffeinated Week

2015-05-20 12.15.44This is shaping up to be a caffeinated week. And it’s only Wednesday. I’ve been working like a maniac to finish the third draft of the mss for beta readers. Done! Also, I wrote bunch of blog posts, including A Rainy Afternoon Reading on my author blog (about Mary Robinette Kowal and Marie Brennan’s book tour) and a cookout post on The Usual Suspects group food blog (as well scheduling next week’s post). Why excessively long writing days this week? Today I’m getting a foster dog. Neglected, anxious, affection-starved, but not housebroken. No writing gets done when a scared untrained dog enters my life. Now I’m both literally and figuratively “going to the dogs”. 😀
