I still need to type my notes from Tara Taylor Quinn's presentation at the conference this weekend. I've promised to email them to Jennifer Madden, whose notes were deleted.
What I keep thinking about was when someone asked Tara about her writing day. She said she leaves the house when her husband leaves, drives somewhere and buys a Diet Coke "on the way to work," then goes back to her house and into her office. Although it is attached to their home, her office has an outside entry. She works all day (I think she takes a lunch hour), then leaves work when her husband comes home. Unless she's behind on a deadline, she keeps to this schedule. Seems to work rather well for her too. She has four books published a year.
Now, this isn't the kind of substantive stuff a normal person's notes will contain. But of course, I'm not normal. I always enjoy hearing little tidbits like this, mulling them over, and deciding what to do with them.
Don't look for me to switch from coffee and tea to Diet Coke any time soon, but I may get better at closing the door while I write.
I'm also at my publisher's blog today.
It's Girls' Night Out--Country Style again tonight. I'll be there unless something major comes up.
