I took it easy this week with my writing productivity. That means I didn’t get much writing done, but I did do a lot of cleaning and organizing. Cleaned and organized my pantry and did some dusting around the house. I don’t know why doing these sorts of things helps recharge my brain, but I definitely felt a lot more refreshed once I got some of it done.
I finally placed my ebook on preorder! And I already got my first preorder, which bumped the book into the top 1k in an Amazon category. I hope Tootsie’s story finds its way to more readers. I’ve been having the most trouble getting these paperbacks to be printed. I went ahead and used another service, so I can get them in and sent off to reviewers before the release date. I’m hoping they come in by next week. I hate doing things right down to the wire. But alas, this is all a learning experience, and I’ll know what I’ll need to do next time.
The weather has been warm again. And rainy. I already miss the cold and not looking forward to the start of the unbearable heat… ?
My Valentine’s weekend will be spent with my fur baby. Can’t wait till the day after so I can load up on discounted candy!

Congrats on your book!
I do enjoy reorganizing things…cleaning, not so much, but since I have a housekeeper, I just touch things up in between.
I like the look of that James Stewart movie.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Thank you very much. Yees, I love organizing. I’m always looking online for new storage ideas. LOL.
The James Stewart movie was a good one.
Have a great week!
Congrats on the book! And I agree-the best part of Valentine’s day is the day after candy prices!
Haha, absolutely. I can’t help myself.
Sometimes it’s those mundane tasks that help clear the cobwebs. Glad to hear it helped you. Discounted candy is a plus after Valentine’s Day. I don’t have any special plans, just driving home today while listening to an audiobook. Have a lovely week!
Yeah, it’s weird how that works. But I’m glad to stay productive during those times.
I love listening to audiobooks while driving!
I have a friend who loads up on chocolate the day after too! Congrats on the preorders!
Thank you! Yes, discounted holiday candy is my unfortunate weakness.
Hope you have a great week!
Congratulations on your book and on taking some time to clean and organise, that is always good for your mental state and wellbeing, and I plan to do the same this coming week as I am off work. I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day with your fur baby, take care and happy reading. ?
Thank you for the encouragement! 🙂 My Valentine’s Day has been lovely and quiet. And the fur baby is being lovable as always.
Enjoy your week!
I’m not a fan of super hot. then again it’s freezing here so haha where’s that happy medium? 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
I had no idea there was an old Nancy Drew movie!
Oh yeah, there were like four Nancy Drew movies that came out in the ’30s. They were fun movies! I never saw them before, either, so it was a real treat 🙂
Happy Valentines Day to you too!
Discount Chocolate tastes delicious! Congrats on your book- so exciting! A good cleaning can be so clarifying- Have a great week!
Thank you very much. Can’t wait to indulge 😀
Enjoy your week!
I like to take mental breaks between books. It’s when I get all the cleaning done! 🙂
Yeah, it’s definitely refreshing. Have a safe week and stay warm!
