In The Throes of Writing

Really, that is where I am. I'm on Chapter 5 of my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery.

And I've also been writing post for the blog tour for Murder in the Worst Degree, due out in March.
Fortunately the blog tour itself isn't until April because I'm headed to Left Coast Crime for several days in March. From experience, I know it's difficult to promote a blog tour successfully when you are away from home.

Back to my work-in-progress, it has not been easy going. I'm not an outliner--wish I were because I might know where I'm going. The plot has taken a different twist than where I thought it was going when I began. I shouldn't be surprised, because that happens to me often.

I've had many distractions (health, family, the holidays, meetings, newsletters to write, a couple of projects that actually bring in money) so I'm woefully behind in my output. I need to at least be a chapter ahead to read to my critique group--and I suppose that kind of gives me a deadline.

Yes, and I like to keep by own blog up-to-date.

Marilyn aka F.M. Meredith
