Yeah, that seems to be the norm for Book 2.

I'm also still dealing with the identity theft, which as apparently the Unemployment Office in four states. If you've worked in Colorado, Illinois, Arkansas or Kentucky, you may want to keep a close eye on your credit and look into freezing your credit for the time being. Why can't people use their talents for good. I swear, all of our problems would be solved and World Peace would truly be possible.

Now, it's not about struggling with the book (okay, maybe a little) but it's more about getting my office to a state where I actually want to work in there.

My living room STILL looks like a Uhaul unloaded in there but I'm taking things little by little.

Sadly, little by little is coming to an end. I have a deadline I HAVE TO MEET! I Promised!

With that in mind, there probably won't be a lot of posts this week - at least not on a routine, but please check back. You never know.

Bob will be home on June 10th. I'd like to be done on June 9th so I can just tidy up and have a meal ready when he walks in the door after that long eight-hour drive from Chicago to here.

The other thing is I've not pressed about this book because with this whole Shelter In Place thing, I can't get with my book editor to help me with the formatting. She is teaching me how to do this so we don't always have to get together - though I'd still take her out for Sushi when I'm in town just cause she's my friend.

That's me on the far right(second row) On my right is Tiereny James then My book editor, Sharon Holmes with PaperBack press (Just over Tierney's right shoulder)

I could have finished the book, sent it to Skizz to format and paid it for the process but that wouldn't teach me anything.

So.. with all that,  the room will be done and I'm back to writing two weeks from today. I won't write the first weekend Bob is home, nor the last weekend before he goes back. Everything in between is up for grabs for me to schedule things as I need to.

I can't wait to hide on my sofa in the office and get back to my characters. I know once I do, their story will  pour out of me. That's usually how I write.

Are you a writer? If so, feel free to share your process below and inspire others.
