Done! And Getting There!

Something is chasing her! Daddy. Wait, I found a leaf. Playing chase was halted for a moment. Such is the life of a toddler.

I could say that somehow through a miracle I managed to not only take care of my granddaughter, AND finish up the SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue novella and turned it in last night to beat the March 1st deadline, DONE!!! AND whittled down being 14,000 words behind on Wolff Brother (working title), to being 3,000 words behind to a miracle, but really, it was work, and Keira’s 3 hour-long naps, and giving her little candy boxes from a gift basket I received at Christmas (empty candy boxes) that she played with for hours, opening and closing the little flaps, sticking a rubber star into the one, pulling it out, sticking it in–all engineering feats, I’m sure, and having some ideas that came to me that allowed me to go forward!

Fun work and I’m feeling great about the progress! Okay, so I’ve had requests for writing sequel books for: The Magic of Inherian–the third book in the trilogy, Emerald Isle of Mists, and the second book in Ghostly Liaisons. Both were started and I looked and I still have them. Sometimes I’ve had major computer crashes and I have lost a couple of stories. I also have the 2 sequels to Kiss of the Vampire (YA) started. And I was asked where Bound for Trouble, the sequel to Bound by Danger, was??? It”s also written, but needs major revisions. I work on it periodically when I’m not in a deadline panic. And usually when I’m trying to come up with an idea on a new deadline book. It helps me to be doing SOMETHING writing-wise, makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something.

My daughter asked me the other day how many books I have published. Around 70. How many books have I written that I haven’t published yet? Needing major revisions, around 20. How many started books? Around 15. So what am I doing about it???

Laughing. It took me a year to finally finish writing Claiming the White Bear and it took me 8 years to write the sequel to Shadow Elf, Darkland Elf. I think it was 3 years to write Demon Hunter, which is the third demon YA story. It’s not that I don’t want to write the other books, but I have a ton of HAVE TO books to write each year. And it seems the number keeps going up. The others WILL get done. Eventually.

Speaking of which, I’m off to write! Have a fun-filled, productively fun day!

Heart of the Highland Wolf eBook FREE!

Baby is here again and then I have 4 days of writing. I’m hoping to get caught up. Most of the Highland Wolf books are still on sale!

I am trying to write 3,000 words a day so I can be less behind, but I need to finish edits on the novella for SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue and turn it in too.

It turned rainy and cold so I’ve been doing a lot of weeding. The weeds outnumber the population of all the people of the earth though. I’m certain of it! And I’m pretty sure that every time I pull up five weeds, ten more are taking their place, as if I just made room for them.

Okay, I’m off to take care of baby and hope I can get some writing done on my off writing day to make up some more on my word count. I’m 10,000 behind. But that’s down from 14,000, so that’s good!

Have a great day! I was enjoying the overcast one, but I missed seeing the super moon. I hope you got a glimpse of it!

Who Let the Dogs Out?

Ride ’em wolfie! She’s back! Usually I have a four day-break to write. lol

Okay, I’m determined to get something done today. Hopefully. Fingers uncrossed because I have to type. I did manage to get 1500 words written yesterday and today is a non-writing day, so hope to get maybe a 1,000. It just depends if I can get an idea or not!

Have a great day! I’m off to have fun with mine!

Dogs Fed, Baby Fed

Yesterday was great!! I ended up writing 4,000 words, mostly before the dogs and baby arrived. I expected her to come in the morning, not in the afternoon. So I got a lot done! I’m still 14,000 behind, but hopefully they won’t be picked up too late and I can get some writing done today. Two-thousand of the word count is for today. Oh, but I also wrote the Letter to the Reader for the 10th anniversary of To Tempt the Wolf and the one for the following book, Legend of the White Wolf. Almost forgot that!

The dogs and baby and I had a great time the rest of the afternoon and evening.

Pictures of the flowers blooming this winter.

Baby wouldn’t take a nap, but she passed out at 5 pm. Whoops, she wasn’t in her pjs yet, bad grandma. But then she woke at 6:30, so diaper changed and pjs on and then I got her to sleep on her mat in my bedroom by 8 pm. At 1 am, she was awake and crying, disoriented, changed her diaper and she went back to sleep right away. But I couldn’t. So I must have finally fallen asleep around 4:30 am and I heard one of the corgis barking. That usually means I haven’t fastened the other’s crate properly and the female is out. They’re in my sewing room, so they can’t get out. No problem. Just don’t wake the baby.

More barking. More. DON’T WAKE THE BABY. But I ignore him until I hear a clatter in the sewing room. That didn’t sound right. My room is dark and I can’t see the baby sleeping, but when I turn on the light, no baby. I head for the sewing room and total disaster. She’s dumped all my sewing materials everywhere and released the hounds. I make teddy bears. I’ve got bear joints, eyes, bear parts, legs, arms, ears, you name it, all over the floor. I’m just glad she didn’t hurt herself or the dogs.

Sigh. Okay, next sleepover, this was our first and she’s not yet two, I’ll shove her mat against the bedroom door and she can’t leave.

Okay, so when is Mom and Dad coming to pick up their motley crew? Off to play with the baby. And hope, hope, I get my word count for today. I need to get some breakfast too. Have a great one!!!

The Dogs are Coming! The Baby is Coming!

I vacuumed at 5, took my dogs out, fed them, took them out, started the dishwasher, cleaned, started corned beef, carrots, and potatoes in the crockpot, and now it’s time to do my blog and try to get some writing done.

This is a weekend I’m supposed to be writing. Which probably won’t happen much. I need to do a letter to the readers for the 10th Anniversary of To Tempt the Wolf, so maybe I can get that done, despite the chaos this weekend. I was thinking about it before I got out of bed this morning–it’s about my research and I have learned a couple of new things about wolves, so I’ll write those up.

I had to reread the whole Wolff Bros story to remember where I’m at on it all day yesterday and start writing some more. Not sure where I’m going with it.


I’ve been watching Fearing the Walking Dead–and see so many interesting character flaws, and too-stupid-to-live dumb things they do. And nobody does anything or says anything to rectify the situation. It’s annoying. Why do I watch these apocalyptic movies? They’re brainless. I don’t have to think about them much while all these growlie eaters are running around.

I’m off to work! Have an unchaotic day!!!

Thwarted by the Baby

Is that like the dog ate my homework?

Okay, so I’m nearly done on the novella when back comes the baby. I’ve really, really, really got to finish this novella because I need to get back to the novel. I planned to have it all done and off to beta readers this weekend, but guess what????

For the first time ever, baby is staying with me overnight! Yes! Saturday morning through Sunday, and the corgis are going to be here too and my doggies. Ohmigod! Finish the novella over the weekend? And then the baby is back on Monday. And Wednesday.

Chill. The novella will get done. Maybe by Friday? This Friday? It better be!

Hope you are having a great week!!! Mine may be a disaster. Can’t think like that. It’s going to be great. Baby and dogs will be great. And the novella will be done.

If you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll know why.

I Could Probably…

Ranunculus–Buttercups Growing Now!!

Get three times more stuff done during the day if I wasn’t thwarted by the spinning dial.

You know what I mean. That annoying little icon that spins and spins and spins saying that the computer can’t keep up with your actions. I don’t even have fifty-million screens open, so it doesn’t have any excuse. I try to type on my manuscript. The words are flowing through my brain, please, please let me get them down before they disappear. Nope. Three words. Spinning dial.

All right, already. I’ll work on my jaguar. It’s a zoo picture I took, beautiful jaguar, BUT the fence ruined some of the majesty, so I’m removing the fence as much as I can to have a pristine jaguar. Nope. I’m not. Spinning dial.

Okay, fine, I’ll check the weather. Ha!

Okay, I’ll post my blog. I swear the spinning dial is silently laughing evilly as it watches me struggle with doing ANYTHING I want to do. I got up at 4 am. It’s 6:30, and I’m only now able to write this blog.

Finally, the spinning blob has gone back to sleep and now I feel like I need a nap. But nope!!! While it’s gone, I’ve got to hurry and do everything I was trying to do in the last 2 1/2 hours in sonic speed!

Do you ever feel like the spinning dial is slowing you down?

Have a spinning dial-less day!!!!
