It's AUGUST Y'all!!!

Holy muffins! It's AUGUST and it's been hotter than a tick on a dogs armpit around here (hehe, I've been dying to use that one), which has ultimately resulted in me feeling absolutely no motivation to get anything done but catch up on my napping for the last month.  I think I may have actually broke a few nap records along the way.  I know, I know...I'm awful.  But we’re currently at 38 straight days of 100+ temperatures with no reprieve in sight. Ugh.

But I digress...August is definitely my month, a big month actually, because August is my self-designated deadline month to complete all my edits and begin my query submissions. YAY!!! Yes, folks, my deadline month has arrived and I’m pushing myself to the limit on this one.  It’s almost a rush (I was always one of those people who did better under pressure).  Now if only I could convince everyday in the month of August not to present me with life sucking temperatures, then maybe this could be one exciting hunky-dory-dandy of a month! But despite the temps, my first day of August has been very productive and at this rate I'm thinking I might actually meet my goal earlier than anticipated. HURRAH! *fist pump*

So if it seems like I'm a little distracted and/or preoccupied, it's because I am and am wanting to squeeze in as much work time on my manuscript as possible.  But know that I haven’t forgotten any of you and can’t wait to finally share my work with all of you in the coming future.  So wish me luck & let the count down begin!

Happy Writing & Happy Reading!


  1. Sorry about the hot weather, but hey, it's August!! Best of luck with the edits and the queries.

  2. Yeah. You would think after an ENTIRE life of this I would be use to it by now. But, NO. It's still unbearable. And thanks, I'm sure I will need it. How are things coming along with your writing?

  3. Good luck on your editing and querying, my dear! :)

  4. BIG month for you!!! :) I'm so happy for you and proud of you! I know it will be a crazy next few weeks/months, but you can do it!! Whoo-hoo!! Let me know if I can help you with anything along the way. :) You are a rockstar, Blaire!

  5. Awwww! Thanks Chelsea!!! :) I am super excited & terrified all at the same time. Talk about nerve wrecking. *fingers crossed*
