Over 7k done in the wip so far. Off to get my mileage in, grab a bite to eat, then write up some blogs. Today is a good day in my tiny world thus far. I like that.

Question for Monday

September 15th, 2014

Question for readers, because I’m feeling curious yet again.
When you see a book on say, Amazon, that says it’s x-number of pages and you look at the price, are those two things your determining factor for purchase or not? Or, do you say, go to another site to look for actual word count? I know some books are single spaced so they have smaller page count than others which are 1.5 or double.

Up to get some writing done. Having pics taken with hubby (for those who know me, this is monumental as I hate cameras–when they’re pointed in my direction) but him in uniform…not a bad thing. Then heading off to steward the match which I’m looking forward to, would have loved to put my girls in but that’s okay, I get to spend time with friends I haven’t seen in a while and see puppies…all good for me. Then back home for a bit more writing and some football. What are y’all doing today?

Saturday morning

September 13th, 2014
I should probably be baking something sweet to take to all my neighbors who I know I woke early this morning with that loud murderous scream of fear. But…in my defense seeing that big ass spider right by my face didn’t exactly make me happy, either. So, I’m sorry. Now it’s been a few hours and I’m still trembling. I need to get some writing done so gonna try to tackle that. Hard to knowing it is… still there by the door. Waiting. I have a feeling this is going to be a long day. And of course DH had to work overtime so he’s not around to remove/kill/burn do whatever to get it the bleep away from my back door. I’m afraid I’m gonna have to man up and take care of this myself. I don’t want to. Right now, off to try and write some. Have a good day everyone and may my heart eventually resume it’s normal pace which I tell you honestly, isn’t at the pace it’s staying steady at currently. — listening to Andrea Bocelli.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for this WIP that has been my main focus. Seven *six after today’s word count is hit* days remaining before it can sit a bit, then edits and submission.   I’ve got a match I’m stewarding one day this weekend *fingers crossed the rain waits until we’re done* and a show the following weekend I’m also working. *again, an outdoor event so hoping the rain wa…its* I’ve actually reached the point where I miss going in the ring, which, for me is a huge thing since I am not a fan of being up-n-front. So, gonna have to see about missing some stewarding events so I can show. I’m still a believer in if I’m working with the judges I don’t need to be showing to them *or having my dogs entered* over that circuit of shows. But I do enjoy working with them and since I’m extremely inquisitive I ask lots of questions to see how they view the dogs which have come into their ring. Or the ring next to us if they care to discuss them as well. I’ve been lucky to work with very professional men and women. I do enjoy stewarding.   In between I am writing in my notebook on the contemporary I’m working on and getting rid of more things. The next box for books to go to storage in my office is filling up slowly, still not reading as fast as I would love to be, but, at least I’m getting in a min of 30 minutes a day.   I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and had a 9-11 that helped calm the memories from the past. I didn’t post on it although I was thinking on it all day.   Now, for me, back to work. — listening to Cats das Musical.

Happy Monday!

September 8th, 2014

Sitting at my desk, watching the rain fall. I love days like this. Anyway, it’s Monday which means I’m locking myself away in the writing cave. Deadlines to hit and all that. I hope all y’all have a wonderful day.

Happy Sunday

September 7th, 2014

No snakes last night in the dreams. *Yay* Zombies took their place…not sure what that says about me. Oh well, I’m off to work on my secret project and hopefully watch some football later in the day. Hope all y’all have a Blessed Sunday! — listening to Classic rock.

It’s Saturday

Third night…snakes. I have dark circles under my eyes and would love to go back to bed. But…all good. I will not let this defeat me. I’m listening for whatever His message is. Right now, I’m dealing with things I have control over. Like writing…love it when things fall into place just so. Finishing up some edits then I get to work on a story I’ve been chomping at all week to get back to. I hope everyone has a wonderful day. — listening to The Pagemaster.

Second night in a row I’ve dreamt about snakes. There was no wielding Roscoe today but waking to the thought I’m stuck in a nest of pit vipers didn’t do much for my start of the day. While I’m not scared of snakes even that was a bit much for me. I’m willing to listen to whatever He is trying to tell me, just please no more dreams like this. Glad the Seattle Seahawks won last night, great game. Now, I have to get some more writing done so I can bake a cake for DH’s birthday. Then dive back into edits. Hope y’all’s day is better than mine. — feeling less and less optimistic.
