Insecure Writers Support Group Call to Meeting
Well, like I was telling Michael, I feel that I have so many things going on that I'm starting to miss a lot of deadlines. I'm used to be very organized and not having things on time is bothering me really bad. I have to pull myself together and my plan is to write everything down on a calendar I'll keep on my desk, so I will be more aware of the deadlines fast approaching.
Right now I'm reviewing for Dark River Press, I have two reviews to deliver by the end of the month, so reading is a big part of my life, but sadly I'm not in total control of what I read, as sometimes I get assigned the books. Then I'm writing my new novel, which is moving at a painfully slow pace. I try to write daily an average of three hours, but my kids schedule collided with mine so often that I ended up writing three days a week at the most. Since school is out, I'm praying this will allow me to go back to the original plan, but that remains to be seen. I also want to submit to a couple of anthologies that sound incredibly good but I have only one story one third in, the other is still to be written... Oh, and have I told you I'm on vacation in Mexico in my parent's house? With the family parties popping like there's no tomorrow, my working time has been seriously crippled.
Oh, gosh! I guess I just have to enjoy the vacation and try to cramp as much work as I can but knowing that most probably I won't be able to make to all the deadlines I wanted to. That's life and if we don't enjoy the ride, then what's the point of even riding, right?
I hope you are having a much more productive summer start. Enjoy the sun, the light summer breeze, and don't let life go by without noticing.
A brief side note. If you are a horror lover, my first novella PERPETUAL NIGHT is free today on amazon. It currently holds the #106 best kindle book, and #2 Bone-chilling horror. You might want to be the next one to experience real fear in a time when so many horror novels have gone stale.

"Morales creates a very interesting tale in Perpetual Night. The dream sequences are at times chilling and the end takes a fresh approach that makes the story well worth the read. This book should appeal to wide range of readers from the younger seeking to challenge themselves to those wishing for a quick well-written read. Check it out!" ~ Ken Cain.
"In Perpetual Night, novelist Georgina Morales has created a frightening "can't put it down" novella about a fifteen-year-old gifted, misfit named Lilibeth. Morales seamlessly weaves a tale unlike the common vampire saga. I felt compelled and attached to Lilibeth, her pal, Alex, their many unexpected twists and turns, and I simply couldn't wait to read where their journey took them next. With Lilibeth, you're taken for a wild ride of supernatural reality versus illusion, especially when it comes to her freakish dreams, which evolve into freakier and scary nightmares. Perpetual Night is a great novella. Put this one on your list to read. I'm looking forward to more from novelist Georgina Morales." ~David Brown.
