Monday Ramble

So, that foot thing? I’m an idiot. It wasn’t just the box/footrest. I also had my chair too high and apparently, I flex on my toes and lock my feet when I’m concentrating. This causes tendon issues which can be unbelievably painful. So… I had a fun weekend propping up my angry feet whenever I wasn’t at a family function or friends function and I had three of those.  

But I’m thrilled with the amount of work I got done last week. I always feel I KNOW a book when I dive into it so deeply.  It’s how I’d like to write most of my books, but the mind, the body and the family need the breaks. So, with me um, messing up my feet SITTING, the hubby and I decided I’ll have to set up a timer. I just zone out too much–forget to drink water… It sounds crazy, I know, but once I give over to a story whether I’m writing it or reading it, I disappear.  (It’s why the amount of books I wrote a year slowed when the kids were younger. My son was curious and silent. That can be a scary combination.)

So, though I’m not giving out more details, as you’ve probably guessed, that work is out on sub now. To take my mind off it, I’m diving into Unnatural Selection. The snippet on the page above under dystopian YA has been getting a ton of traffic. It thrills me to know readers like it so far!!!

Also, a fantastic writer, TL Schaefer, was our Dame for a Day on Saturday and she’s offering a $25 dollar gift certificate and a print copy of one of her books. I’ll be announcing that winner on Sunday. I meant it about Behind Blue Eyes. The book is exciting and has such a cool premise! Check it out!

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
