I’m a little grumpy. Today I scrubbed the kitchen floors, vacuumed the carpets, dusted and did lots of the things I’ve let slip a bit during April because I’ve been focusing on writing. The house looked great when I’d finished, but when hubby arrived home he didn’t notice a thing. This tells me that maybe the house didn’t look as bad as I thought. It also gives me little incentive to hurry up and do all that cleaning stuff again. And yes, it made me grumpy.
Does your husband notice when you do housework?
PUBLISHER SUBMISSION CALLS
I’ve come across a few submission calls and contests that I thought I’d share.
Avon Impulse is requesting themed stories. The subjects range from tales about spooky mansions to ball games and Halloween and Christmas stories. Full details are at Avon Impulse.
Entangled Romance is actively acquiring category length historical romances. The stories can be set between 950 – 1950 and have any setting. An alpha hero is a must. Full details are at Entangled Publishing.
I’ve asked this question before, but it’s worth repeating. I have several series under way, and I always mean to do a series bible. For one reason or another I never seem to get around to doing one. I keep all the pertinent facts inside my head and rely on my memory to recall facts. Not always the best option! As I mentioned yesterday, I’m rereading Fancy Free to reacquaint myself with some of the small facts and snippets that I need for the book I’m working on at present.
For those of you who work on series – how do you keep all the small details straight in your series stories?
