As if you need any more stress in your life...Does it seem like they're coming at you from all sides right now?


April was worse. The day the tornado hit was one week after my book came out. The next day was my birthday, and I had an IVF appt. I absolutely could NOT miss and had to have a friend take us to the hospital because our cars were both a) trashed and b) trapped by debris. Ugh.

This feels manageable by comparison.

Hang in there and breathe. It's going to work out.



You've had an unusual road to fame and fortune :) in that your first novel sold. Most of us write several before one is good enough not to be classified as toxic waste and stored forever under the bed because local trash companies won't deal with such, LOL.

But I wouldn't worry about obsessing and going neurotic about the novel...

You will be spending all that sort of energy being pregnant, right?

It will make the anxiety of writing another book a relief! Enjoy it while you have it.


I will say that being pregnant is one hell of a motivator for getting a novel done. Nothing like a deadline!


Good luck! 9 months doesn't seem like much! I've been working on mine for 10 months now and I'm only 3/4 done! Of course, it's my first so I don't really have much of a deadline. I'm sure you can do it!


Think Nike (as in "Just Do It")

We'll be rooting for you!
