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.
In this art challenge, we were supposed to have scribbles that followed a diagonal line and text that did too. Blocks of text also. And repetitive photos with different blend modes. I chose to do mine with flamingos because they mate for life and used a love theme. The two major words say crush and hug. And I was attempting an X–the symbol for kiss on mine with the diagonal text and scribbles. I took the photo of the flamingos at the San Diego Zoo. They were standing on their nests.
Little one is here and so I’m trying to get breakfast made and feed the birds, etc. The temperature dropped from 83 to 47 today. It will only get to 51 today. Weirder weather, I tell you. 🙂 The norm will no longer be the norm, I’m afraid.
Finally up to 79K on Wolf on the Wild Side, which has nothing to do with luck but a lot of work! lol
Finished the print cover for Vexing the Highlander and uploaded it. Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing that all my time is gone and I feel I haven’t accomplished much of anything, but I really have! I keep thinking of next books…the sequel to the Wolf Wore Plaid, the sequel to Vexing the Highlander, finishing Bear in Mind…so many stories, so little time.
I’m off to work on Wolf. Then babysitting duty so the kids can garden, but then we’ll also have lunch.
When Tom Cat doesn't know what to do with Mouse.
Especially when this mouse is a BIG mouse. Or maybe a rat. The rats we have out here look like this.
I won another art contest at Oscraps! 🙂 I’m working on some more–having fun. So yesterday we had a blast. I managed a little editing on Wolf on the Wild Side. Today, I’m working on more editing. The book is “done” but still trying to reach word count and doing more editing, fleshing out scenes, etc. Only 1400 words until word count. I really like it when I have the book written from beginning to end and really this is the most fun part.
My next deadline book is the Highland wolf one, so I need to write on that. I also want to do a million others. Of course. lol
I’m still working on the new print cover for Vexing the Highlander, the novella, so I’ll have that done today. I always feel more self-actualized (a term I learned in psychology class)–when I accomplish something. Like cutting down the holly tree volunteers that were shading out a beautiful rosebush and sunshine ligustrum that needed more sun to really grow. Isn’t that always the way though? You plant something, and it barely grows. You plant some more things and then voila, the plant that would barely grow is taking over and so is everything else and on top of that, volunteer plants have decided to join the crowd.
I love plants, so I really don’t like to have to cut any down. I did just cut the lower branches off the one holly and left the top to continue to grow upward. But I had some pine trees that grew from seeds too right near it, so they’ll all be competing with one another soon also.
