Monday mornings and a fresh slate

Good morning, readers. Here in Ohio as well as in most places within my blog reach it’s Monday!

I used to hate Mondays when I was a schoolteacher (and various other jobs) but not so anymore. I love them. Why? Because I have a fresh new opportunity to get things done. 5 days, tons of hours, thousands of minutes to cross off items on my to-do list! Writers never have one book that they’re working on. There is the one they’re actually writing, plus the one they’re researching, plus one being edited and of course, the one recently released that you’re supossed to publicize. Is it hard to keep all of them straight in your head? You bet it is. It’s like juggling six balls in the air, and unless you’re a trained circus clown that’s a challenge. But on Mondays everything seems possible. So I’ll settle into my favorite chair and start chapter two of A Plain Man. (the book  I’m writing) A Little Bit of Charm has been turned into my publisher and I’m waiting on suggested changes. I researched my summer project this past weekend. And the one that’s arriving in stores?? I’m in the process of sending out free copies to contest winners. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, do so from my website: www.maryellis.net  I’m giving away 10 free copies of Love Comes to Paradise on March 15th.  And in the meantime, drop by this writer’s blog for a short interview. If you leave a comment there, Casey will draw a lucky winner in about a week. here’s the link:   http://enjoyingthewritingcraft.blogspot.com/

In the meantime, enjoy YOUR Monday. Look how many days you have to get your dreams accomplished.   Mary
