Exploring Terms & Counting Days

Hey, guys! I know most of you are still NaNo'ing (*cheers*), so I'll make this quick:


  1. I'm over at NA Alley this week--meaning I'll be doing posts, fielding tweets, answering emails, and moderating #NALitChat. Please feel free to stop by. You are always welcome there. :)

  2. Speaking of NA Alley, I just posted part 2 of the Exploring Terms series. Today, we're tackling what it means to be traditionally published. Dun, dun, dunnn...

  3. Oh, and one more thing. *Takes a deep breath...* 100 days until Strength!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, how was your weekend? :)

I was going to nudge you about the 100 day thing, but you beat me to it. :P Heading over the the alley... :)

Julie Luek said...

100 days, seems worth celebrating. Congrats!

It's already on my calendar. Can't wait.

Oh yes Strength. Can't wait. Will check NA post.

Every time I see people note the days before the release of their books, my stomach knots up.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Samantha May said...

100 days?! Wow that is beyond exciting! Congratulations :)

jamieayres.com said...

Yahooooo! Mine comes out in 2 months--are you as excited and SCARED as I am?!

Melodie said...

100 days sounds longer than just over 3 months. Either way, the time will fly by!

Mark Murata said...

Carrie, I think you were the one who blogged about using Excel sheets as part of your writing process. Things became complex in my current project, so I've also started using Excel. Thanks for the tip.

Lisa Regan said...

YAY for Strength!!!! Can't wait!!!

Carrie Butler said...

I can't complain. :) Very excited!

A little nervous, though...

Carrie Butler said...

Squeee! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I'm on my game this week!

Kind of.

Not really... ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Julie! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Once we get through the holidays, it'll be here before you know it!

(That made me panic a little. LOL)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Natasha! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Sheena-kay! :) I appreciate that you took the time to comment over at NA Alley, too!

Tammy Theriault said...

strength?? hmm...gotta check it out!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Teresa! :D

Carrie Butler said...

185 days until yours, Donna! ;) You too!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Samantha! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Oh my goodness, Jamie. Scared, yes, scared! LOL

Jess said...

OH MY GOSH!! CONGRATULATIONS! That's so awesome! Good luck!

Iain said...

100 days? IS that all???
Where's the countdown widget on your page?
Can you tell, I'm still doing the excited thing while you do the hard work and worrying thing :o)

Emily R. King said...

I had a great weekend! Lots of food and family fun.

Congrats on entering less than 100 days until your book release. Just 99 days! :)

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

The thing is, 100 days will fly by.

Carrie Butler said...

It does, doesn't it? Here's to hoping! :)

lbdiamond said...

Heading over to NA now! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Yep, that was me! I'm so glad you were able to use the top, Mark. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Lisa! :)

cleemckenzie said...

Wow! Only 100 more days!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Tammy! I hope it'll be of interest to you. :)

P.S. You can find Strength's central page here.

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Jess! :D

Carrie Butler said...

It's on the left sidebar, near the top. Lynn Rush made it! :D

Heck yes. Otherwise, I'd be rocking in the corner, staring at everyone every Monday! LOL

Carrie Butler said...

+10 points for alliteration, Empress King! :) And thank you!

Carrie Butler said...

Really? Eek. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, lbdiamond! :) You rock!

Carrie Butler said...

We're on the downward part of the roller coaster! ;)

Talli Roland said...

Wow, it's getting closer! How exciting!

Carrie Butler said...

You bet! :) Thanks for stopping by, Talli!

Lydia Kang said...

Great, thanks! Going to drop by your post...

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Lydia! :)

Michael Pierce said...

And they'll be the 100 shortest days of the year, so the time will seem to go by faster. The wait is almost over!

Carrie Butler said...

I never thought of it that way! :) Thanks, Michael!

Robin said...

100 days! You could make a paper chain of hot guys as you wait for your release date. It would be even more exciting than those month long chains waiting for Christmas. How many days again?

Oh right....

Carrie Butler said...

Robin, you win all of today's awesome points for that idea. :D

Clarissa Draper said...

100 days!? Awesome!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Clarissa! :)

Kelley Lynn said...

100 days!!! Eep!

well, a little less now because I've been on a bloggy hiatus for the month of november.

Can't wait!

Carrie Butler said...

Eep, indeed! :) Welcome back, Kelley!

Melissa Sugar said...

How exciting, only a hundred days. Way to go.

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Melissa! :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

So did you beat NaNo?

Carrie Butler said...

Afraid not. My month consisted of a death in the family, my nephew in the hospital, a new baby niece, and my computer going kaput.

The odds were not in my favor... this time. :)

Mark Koopmans said...

Er hello...

I noticed one typo... it's not 100 days, it's 93 days.

Ms. Butler. Really. One suggests that one brush up on her mathematical skills.

Carrie Butler said...

You're right, Mark. It has nothing to do with this post being a week old. *sigh* Just please blame me, and not the public school system. They tried their best...

*Grins*
