April = No Slacking Month!!

Since I’ve been such a slack Minx, I thought I’d mosey on over to the Minx Blog today to see what my fellow Minxes were up to. And lo and behold, I got hit in the face by the fact that I'd signed up to the April Challenge. Read more about it here.

After a few heart-stopping minutes of sheer panic, I admit this is a good thing. I've been near comatose writing-wise since I hit send on my revised full MS seven weeks ago today (Counting? Me? Nope!!). So this challenge-for-all-the-world-to-see is just what I need. So what if the kids are on holiday, and the birds are tweeting for me to join them in garden? It IS time to write *that* scene where the heroine does *that* thing she really doesn't want to do but *must* (can I put any more asterixes in this post, d’you think?) which results in HUGE turmoil for her and her hero!

Wish me luck?

Oh, and whilst procrastinating percolating, I started compiling a playlist for the upcoming challenge. Well, I say compiling, but so far I haven't gone past this song.

It's dancey, but the words, whilst not profound, is making me think lots about my MS.



  1. Lots of luck with your scene and your April writing Maya!

    Happy waiting too =)

  2. Go for it, Maya! And big finger crossing on the revised full!

  3. Always love it when heroines do things they don't want to but HAVE to despite the consequenses to the hero. Hope you enjoy the writing! Hope it eases the waiting! (toes and fingers are all still crossed over here too)

  4. Thank you muchly, Jackie :)

  5. I love the idea of writing it too, Kate, just to try something out of my comfort zone. Thanks for the crossed digits, lol ;)

  6. Yay on the writing. I've been doing a lot of thinking, but not too many words. I'm starting off slow this month but ending in a flourish. I hope!!
