The Goonies Have Spoken

I mentioned recently that I ended 2010 by finishing the rewrites of my work-in-progress; this month I’ve been busy with the last (hopefully) round of revisions before I think the novel will be submission worthy. I’ve been having an internal debate with myself about taking a short break from Creative Spaces--I have so much fun with the interviews and don’t want to disappoint those of you who look forward to them each week, but it would free up a little more time and focus for my WIP. The funny thing is, just when I decided to stick with Creative Spaces as planned, what do I stumble across on my gym TV? The Goonies! If you’ve read the brief description of my novel in my bio, you know that The Goonies is one of the inspiration points. To randomly come across that movie at the same time I was debating how to order my priorities--I took it as a sign.

And so the Goonies have spoken! I’ll be taking a brief hiatus from Creative Spaces interviews for the rest of January. I hope you all will rejoin me here for Creative Spaces on February 7!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go blast Cyndi Lauper's “Good Enough” and get back to my revisions.

And remember, Goonies Never Say Die!
