I found this little guy in my photos and I thought he was so adorable, taking one big step with his big webbed foot. But the background distracted from him way too much. So voila, here he is. Not an ugly duckling at all. I took this photo at Balboa Park in San Diego.
I had to move some scenes around in the Highland Wolf novel and expand them yesterday. So I finally made word count. The heat was beastly outside, but I planted 3 of the miniature rosebushes first thing yesterday morning. My goal is to plant the last two this morning before the heat makes it impossible. And of course get word count again.
Have a super fun Friday. I’m off to get busy with mine.
This is for another art challenge. What makes us happy? Creating art, photography (the ostrich photo is mine), reading and writing books, the flower representing gardening, bird watching, animals, even stormy days. Of course there’s more, but this is what I managed to include.
Okay, I’m off to work like a snail again on edits. My characters need more depth. Off to give them some issues.
Hope your day is happy! And if it isn’t, as Star Trek’s Cpt. Picard would say, “Make it so.”
I loved the discrepancy in the two animals heights, both with long necks and long legs at the zoo when I took this picture, but the background had fences, so I did the composite to show off the animals better.
We swapped out days that I have my granddaughter so she should be here any minute. My daughter and I were swapping seeds so I need to plant some more. Green zinnia? Can’t wait to see them grow in my garden. Off to get ready!
I had a hundred-million things to do today, so I forgot to blog. But I did figure out how to reset my sprinkler so it wasn’t going off several times a day. At least I hope so. And I only have it going off two days a week. At least I hope so. lol
I’ve got to finish two projects this week, maybe, hopefully: Wolf Pack and A United Shifter Force Christmas. We got our novellas for the Mistletoe and Shifters anthology back, so I need to get it ready to republish on its own. Just adding to the cover I’d made for it a while back. And I had to format the book for the single novella. Just getting the ISBNS for it now, and maybe I can get this done by Friday. I’ll still need to create the print version cover too.
At 9,000 words on Highland Wolf and hope to reach 10K today. Having a ball with it!
And I need to make a bear order! And hopefully get that out by Friday!
Back to doing the Oscraps art challenges for the new month!
I planted chives this morning, other plants last night, still need to put in some other flowers and a couple of herbs. I need more soil and bark mulch! And I have sunflower seeds that I need to figure out where to plant also. I keep thinking if I have enough plants it will shade out the weeds.
We had fog today. Love it as long as I don’t have to drive in it!
I’m off to write for a while. I’m up to 6,000 words on the new book!
Or is she? She might be a sheep shifter. Whoever knows in this crazy mixed up world of ours.
Speaking of shifters, Wolf on the Wild Side is done and I’m turning it in today. I want to finish up Wolf Pack in the next couple of days and get started on the new Highland wolf book. Since I just wrote Kayla’s story though, I want to write her sister’s Roxie’s story now since I’m still kind of in their world. But the Highland book is due first.
Little one will be here soon so I’m off to do my Wordle and then get ready!
I think I finished Wolf on the Wild Side. I’m doing edits this morning, then switching to read mode and reading it all the way through. Which means more edits, but I think the book is completely written. Yay!
I’m off to do that. We had 2″ of rain, colder temps and get to 62 today by late afternoon. I’m looking forward to a warm up. But you know how it is.Then it will be well over the 100s and I’ll be wishing it was cooler.
