Well, I’m 10,000 words behind on Roxie’s story because of working on Big Cat Magic, but I managed to get it down to that today. lol It was more. This is a MidJourney version of a ragdoll cat.
I’m off to take my granddaughter to the pool and then lunch with them, and then back to the book! I need to write 3,000 a day now to make up for being behind, but that will take 10 days, unless I can write more than 3k. But it always depends if I can keep thinking of new scenes for the story or not.
Okay, so no, that is not the Highland wolf, but that is the title of the Christmas Highland wolf story coming out next year, October, I think.
Anywho, the Highland cow represents the ones in the story. Isn’t he ADORABLE?
I just love them.
All right, it’s TGIF, and I’m off to hopefully finish up proofing of Big Cat Magic and turn it over to my final beta reader.
Last day to pick up little one from big kid’s school this week. She asked me when she was going to stay at my house for the day–even though she was here all day Monday and Tuesday. She has been staying here for two days of the week for 5 years, so it’s hard for her to understand we have a whole new schedule now. But I told her I’d take her swimming on Sunday, and when it was good for everyone, she could stay overnight with me. We do that at least once a month.
Isn’t as easy as it seems. A visit to the woods is filled with other critters.
I made all the changes to Big Cat Magic again. I didn’t have time to proof it, so I’ll start tomorrow. I was just informed my daughter’s school district has different holidays than the one my granddaughter will go to. lol So that means Grandma will have granddaughter for a whole week in October.
I’m off to work on proofing, if I can get anything done!
Created with MidJourney. I like the Baroque look. I made some changes.
So I’m taking my granddaughter to swim today and we’re having burgers at their house this afternoon. I managed 5,000 words on Roxie’s story yesterday. Need to do all of the edits on Big Cat, then proofing it again. Probably won’t get word count on Roxie’s story today.
I have my granddaughter for the next 2 days and then she’s off to kindergarten on Wednesday. Woohoo!
My routine that I’ve had for 5 years is about to turn upside down. lol
Created with MidJourney, changed out the nose. Often the eyes and noses are off, ears too. But for sleeping fluffy puppies, it’s mostly fine! I added Baroque to the prompt and added some texture layers.
Okay, off to work! I need to get my word count for today on Roxie’s story. It’s so hot, no rain. That’s the word of the day.
Created with MidJourney. The site is really addictive. lol
Okay, so I managed to pull two 40-lb bags of weeds out front last night in the 99-degree weather. It was thundering, like usual. And like usual, no rain. We have only 2 more swim days this week and then no more until next year. So my granddaughter and I will go there today. Next week, no more excuses for not doing the weeding first thing in the morning before I get to my writing!
Oh, sure, I’ll probably still come up with excuses, but… I’m hoping to get all that done next week out front anyway. If I don’t do it first thing, it’s way too hot.
