Coffee * Tea * Me

I am at a very odd place. This place is called my dining room table. Wait, that's not what I meant.

I'm at a very odd place in my writing career. This place is called "I have finished all my current deadlines."

What the holy fuck?

In all of my (mumble, mumble) years of writing, I have rarely been at this location before. Generally speaking, I've had seventeen different contracts waiting for me—a new project over every horizon.

Yes, a really exciting new collection is in the works—but I don't have the contract or deadline yet, so I am in wait mode there. And yes, I am putting together my Naked sequel—but a few writers asked for extensions, so I have put that book on the shelf for a few weeks. (Would you still like to send me a piece? Drop me a note at msalisontyler at yahoo dot com.)

Now, I am basking. Honestly. I would have thought I'd be jittery. Nervous. Even C is for Crazy. Instead, I'm drinking my coffee, puttering around my office, slowly putting together a new PDF/Kindle story that is filthy even by my standards. This not having pressure breathing down your neck thing? Priceless.


P.S. My new crave is called Coffee Tea Me Necklace.

I love this post! You're... relaxing...!

Ok, so maybe you'll have time to do that *thing* I cheekily asked you to do? ;)

Yeah, I'm working on it!
Both relaxing — and doing the thing you asked me to!

Absolutely fabulous to hear sweetie! Congrats. :D

And Jo was being cheeky? Since when? *wide eyed gasp of wonderment* :P
