DBPR #6

Life: It was a mostly relaxing day today. I read. I reread The Bastard Prince or what I have of it. I noticed some typos, made notes on it the nearly screamed when I realized I ended mid sentence. XD  Aside from that (and the usual ferrying kids to and from work) it was a pretty laid back day.

Writing: I managed to get the next chapter of E1 up over on Wattpad. Finally. I’ll be wrapping up the next chapter and posting it here in a couple days.

Reading: see above.

DBPR #5

Life:  Orientation was interesting. The class is small and I like the staff. Very excited about this new step. This afternoon I ran to the grocery store with the youngest two and on our way out, as I was loading the groceries into the trunk, the skies let loose a deluge. I got an early shower. Dear dogs it was cold!

Writing: Currently doing a typo check on the new chapter for wattpad and hoping to get more words in if I can get the kids to leave me alone long enough LOL.

Reading: None today

DBPR #4

Man I lost a week somewhere. Aren’t summers fun? Lol

Life; Been playing taxi for kids. It’s amazing how tired I get just from running teens to work and errands.

Tomorrow at 10am is MY orientation for school then I start monday. I am excited and terrified all at once.

Writing; working on E1 right now actually. I have some other ideas I want to tackle soon.

Reading; reread The Black Company Omnibus by Glen Cook. If you haven’t read it, you should. The series is phenomenal.

DBPR #2

Today was long. Rainy, which I love, but busy, and filled with pissy teenagers, and that makes days drag.

Writing; not much, I’d say less than 500 words, I wasn’t paying attention to wordcount.

Reading; my books are still in boxes 🙁

For some reason this didn’t post yesterday, just saved. Stupid phone

Missing post

It seems the Sunday Serenity post got eaten by my phone. I’m not sure what I did wrong, but it’s not showing up. It was just a pic of my new back porch. Oh well, here are some other pics, the container garden has moved back there, and I think it’ll be a nice little retreat. In the evenings and mornings. There’s no roof so it’s kinda hot in the afternoons atm.

New Beginnings

So we moved. Bigger house, better neighborhood, an actual yard we can use and not worry about the kids breaking their necks on the steep hill.

I have an actual office space, not my bedroom, and large garden area outside. There’s a nicer kitchen, and overall it’s a definite improvement over the last place.

We can be happy here. It’s not just a house, it’s a home.

We also found patches of black mold in the old place, after we moved everything out. I’ll tell the old landlord when I give her back her keys.

It’s freeing, like shaking off useless baggage. I feel able to function.

So. I’m rebooting the daily blog posts, starting with this one. I’m quite pleased at how long it went last time.

Writing; I’ve been unpacking and organizing. I haven’t really been physically writing, but with the move has come a surge of ideas, and dreams.

Movin & Groovin; I’m more active here. For a number of reasons. To the point my knees are complaining. ? damn you body. But thats okay. I’ll get past that. Lol

Reading; just the covers of books I’m unpacking

Time to get crackin. Figure out a game plan. This has been a stressful but great move.

Fly by post

Ok, so apparently the web server/website host had a crash a few days ago. OPPS

 

I swear I didn’t do it.

 

Update on everything.

Streak is broken, but for good reason. I can’t go into it right now but things are GOOD and looking better. I may be offline for a bit while I adjust stuff. But I should be back by mid july if not sooner. Trying to get my phone to connect with the website so I can continue my daily posts. I’m having issues with that. It’s amusing, probably user error. Oh, wait… fixed it. Ok, so posts via phone. We’ll see how this works.

Actual writing has ground to a halt *sigh* BUT my brain is chugging out ideas and I’m note-taking. I hope all of you are having a fabulous summer. This has got to be one of the nicer summers(depression wise) in recent memory. And it’s only getting better. Take care, be kind to each other. I’ll hopefully have an update with actual news news here in a week or so.

Daily Blog Post #25

Damnit this was supposed to go up a couple of days ago. I’ve been caught up with kids and… kids adventures breaking into swimming pools. Don’t ask, it’s hilarious and stupid and all I can say is TEENS! *rollseyes*

In other news a pal of mine released this new book. Guys, go get it, it’s got a talking cat in it. Really fun.

 

I’m about to start typing with my forehead. I know, I broke the streak, but I’ll keep going.

Daily blog post #24

OOPS

This weekend has been busy. Very busy. I broke the streak, but I’m not gonna stop posting. We’ve been getting things done, errands have been run, important things handled. And I’ve been binging on (and breaking thanks to too many mods loaded) fallout 4.

Writing; busy days mean nothing written.

Reading: nada.

Gardening:  I have a small harvest! Snappeas!

They’re soooo cute!

 

Sorry for the weekend silence. Hubs has now headed back to work and some really good stuff is in the plans which atm I can’t really talk about. BUT Things are good. Better than they’ve been for a long time. Take it easy all.

Daily Blog Post #23

Life: the cough is easing up, I’m not quite as spacey as I was yesterday. Played far too much Fallout 4 though. Working  my way through the Nuka World DLC . It was a nice relaxing day, I got stuff done (vehicle stuff), and I rested. And oh a little bit of gardening too.

Writing: None. However I’ve been fiddling with the cover issue and I decided to reach out to a gal who does covers and commission one for her. I just don’t have the brain cells to do my own covers. All of them need to be updated. She does good work so I figure she’s the right choice. Something to mention, to fellow indi authors, hiring out is not a bad thing. Recognize when you need help.

 

Reading: just the fallout 4 survival handbook.

Daily Blog Post #22

Life: The cold has ramped up. I’ve been hacking up a lung. Not sure if it’s a cold or allergies or a combination of both. Either way I spent the day snuggling with little people and watching science shows.

 

Writing: been trying to write out a scene for E3 but I keep losing my focus.

Will try to go to sleep and write more tomorrow.

Daily Blog Post #21

Life: D, my 18 year old, brought his gf over a few days ago. She was hacking and coughing. Guess what? Whatever she had, I have now. I am not amused.

For some reason this scene has been replaying in my head. I haven’t seen the rest of the movie since I was a kid but this scene has always stuck out. Pure gold lol

Writing: Today I was trying to work on my digi art and do a cover for Playing for the Dead because wow that cover really needs to be updated. I found a gorgeous pic, and then sat staring at it in my graphics program at a complete loss. I fumbled around for a while on the program before closing it out of frustration. I’m not sure if it’s brain fog from being sick or if it’s just that I haven’t touched this sort of thing in about 2 or 3 years.

I did scribble up some notes for Elemental Spies/Heir and did some background stuff for one of the love interests in that story. I think it’ll make a great story. Of course now I want to get a fire opal, if only so I can actually have one in hand when I try to describe the one the MMC is going to give the FMC. (And for someone who has never received any sort of jewelry before she’s going to be very baffled by it all mwahahaha!)

 

Reading: nada I have the focus of a butterfly.

Daily Blog Post #20

Life: It was a laid back monday. Did more gaming than I should have. Hubs, who works out of town for weeks at a time, came home earlier than I expected (YAY!) but it’s also kinda distracting. I’m usually up late and well… he has to get up for work about my usual crawling into bed time.

Writing: … lets not talk about this right now LOL. I’ll be up early to write tomorrow.

Reading: Does my Fallout 4 Survival Guide count? LOL

Politics: Net Neutrality is officially over. The Orange Cheeto has managed, again, to embarrass us. And ICE. Holy fuck I can barely go to FB at the moment. I’m sickened by what my country is turning into, and I’m exhausted by it all. Which isn’t helping the whole depression shit either.

Resist and Be Kind to each other
