Making One Mistake After Another

Today was my last time to post on the 3rd Tuesday of the month on another blog--and when I went to check it out, I'd posted it at an earlier date--why I couldn't tell you. I fixed it. All the time I was feeling good because I just knew I'd written a post for this blog for today.

Guess what? No I hadn't.

Do I have an excuse? Not really. I could say I've been really busy--well I have--but so has everyone else.

Just to give you a sample of what I've been doing as far as writing and publishing is concerned:

Organizing a blog tour.

Writing what I hope will be tantalizing posts that will make readers want to follow along from day-to-day.

As with all blog tours, there were a multitude or problems to solve, and having done this numerous time, more problems will pop up while I"m touring.

I've been working on my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery whenever I can find a bit of time to write.

I also received the text block for the next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery to edit. This is the book that I'm doing the blog tour for.

And guess what else will interrupt all this busyness--income tax is looming over the horizon.

Sorry I brought it up, but it's something we all have to face.

I've also been trying to schedule some presentations and I've done one and have another coming up in March.

So, I'll try and pay better attention to calendar dates, and do what I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do it.

How about you? How is your 2016 going so far?

Busy! I wish I were as organized as you are! Between the full time job, the part time job, and getting ready to launch a new book, in addition to all the family events lining up for this year, I'm going to need a vacation in 2017!

Juggling our lives as authors, wives, mothers etc. isn't easy--and you with a full time job makes it even harder. But in the not to distant past, I did all those things and owned and operated a licensed care facility, which was a 24 hour job. Now that I'm retired from that, I don't seem to have any more time.
