Multiple Deadlines

I used to hear published authors complain about multiple deadlines and my thought was "I wish!" And then this week I got a little taste of it. I'm still not complaining! Cathy and I just finished going over the galley for Dream Chasers--our chance to read through the whole book just as it will look in print and make final changes. The next thing on my list is to fill out the cover art form for Stillwater Promise. (Picture a snowy Minnesota scene) . Tonight we will get together to sign the contract for Pleasant Surprises, the first book in our Illinois series. And while all this fun stuff is going on, I'm working at doubling my words-per-week to meet our Heartsong deadline and hopefully to finish A Sweet Mess, the first book in the Fudge Fairy, Inc. series I'm working on alone. I would love to get this manuscript done by Valentine's Day. I have a "nod" from an agent and a couple publishers--meaning they're at least willing to look at it when it's finished. If any of you feel prodded to pray for this project, I'd be grateful.

You're in my prayers, Becky!!

A mix of excitement and anxiety I detect. You can do it ALL, though, I know, because you are the most efficient writer I know. Praise God for all these writerly blessings you are receiving. You are more than worthy!!!

Good thing juggling is one of your spiritual gifts! And good thing some of the juggling will now be out of your hands. Oh, wait. It ALL is because of your faithfulness to depend on the Master Juggler!

Hey, Becky, I'm tagging you for a meme of seven bookish things about you. If you have time and care to share, here's a link to mine and the rules for this meme that's making its way in cyber land. http://eileenastels.blogspot.com/2008/11/seven-random-bookish-things-my-first.html
