Proposal finis in sight

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

I had to take 1/2 personal day as the a/c on the kitchen/family room side of the house had been blowing warm air. And yes, it's been in the low 80's in South Florida so a/c has been much needed during the heat of the day. However, the service I use ony gives you a 2-hour window. I had to wait until 9 a.m. to call in and get my slot, which was in the afternoon. I rushed into work, returned calls, did a little work and then had to head home. Of course, the service guy arrived at the end of the 2-hour period. So rather than drive myself crazy by trying to make up the billable hours, I decided to take 1/2 day off.

Consequently, I sat with the laptop on the dining room table, writing as I waited for the repair guy to arrive. I finished roughing out the 3rd chapter for my latest proposal. I have about 5 pages for the synopsis so I have to finish tweaking that plus tightened the chapters [note: need to work on the hooks]. However, the end is in sight for this latest proposal, which is a straight thriller/suspense. I've done a ton of research so I'm hoping the book will fly.
