Seekerville BIAW Starts Today

I've signed on for the Seekerville edition of Book In a Week (BIAW). If you follow my blog, you know I do BIAW every January with the Sask Romance Writers, but this is a new one for me.

I won't be starting a brand new book but using this week to add the 20,000 words I need to Emma's Outlaw.

That means I'll be hunkering down in my writing cave this week. I may put out more blog posts here with my progress, but I won't be appearing on many blogs around the net except for the Seekervile one which is encouraging us on.

And in case you're wondering, yes, it's now too cold to work in the sunroom so I've had to move my cave into the rec centre. We've got the furnace fired up and I've set up an old comuter desk on one side of the room where I've been working the past couple days. I'd love to set it up permanently but the cement is cold under my shoes. We'll be putting the old living room carpet out there but have to wait for the crews to come and take it out of the livingroom first.

No, the wall/renovations aren't finished in the living room/bathroom. Actually, they haven't started yet. We have everything ready to go and the insurance company has picked their company of choice but it's a matter of scheduling now. And whenever they do want to start, we won't be stopping them.

Now, on Emma's story: She's been kidnapped by outlaws and is riding across Wyoming...


  1. How's the hunkering down going? I'll be hitting the keyboard after dinner. Have fun!

  2. I am vastly tickled about the bathroom wall still missing. I know, it's wrong, but I have this image of a bundled up person complete with Ugs and a bare hip through fluttering opaque plastic. LOL

  3. Hey Deb, well considering the week's almost over, not so good as I'm behind where I'd wanted to be. I'm finding it hard to shut off my internal editor and although I'm getting good copy, it's a slow go.

    Snow on the ground today and I'll have to take something for whatever it is that ails me. I hate a sore throat as it distracts me too much. :(

    How's BIAW been for you?

  4. Yeah, Kel, go ahead and laugh but it's worth it to get the house redone. And the curtain doesn't flutter because I told the boys they weren't allowed to vacuum in that corner while someone was on the can. LOL

    I find if I put the light on in the living room, you can't see through the curtain as much. Also, Nelson has boarded up the bathrom window in prep for the tub surround so that took care of a lot of light in there. No silhouette when you're in and out of the tub now. :)

    You're in my prayers.


Come on, tell me what you think...
