Love the cardinals and on a wet, rainy day I managed to get some halfway decent shots of the female.
Today is a free day so I’m hoping to get a little more caught up on Highland Wolf. I turned in Wolf in Need–beta reader didn’t like the title so changed it to Wolf in Mind and sent in the Letter to Reader. That’s for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Wolf Fever coming in November. It’s done! Yay!
I am 7,000 behind on Highland Wolf so hope to get 2-3,000 today. But I also need to start working on the dreaded taxes. ugh.
A little chickadee in three different moods. It’s like writing too. Stories have mood. Scenes have mood. You have moods.
I managed to get 2,000 on Wolf in Need and 2,000 words on Highland Wolf! Now when I say that, it’s usually more. I just have to get the 2,000. The day before yesterday, it was 2273 on Highland Wolf. Last night it was 2375. And on Wolf in Need, I’m 55 words closer to my goal today.
The dishwasher repairman is supposed to come today. Yay!
I managed to fight all the monsters over again in Tower of Time, after I did the wrong thing for one of my characters in a challenge and she wasn’t balanced. Can’t have that. Luckily, I had saved an early game, but had to go through all the battles again. So now I’m on the 8th floor in the tower. Yay!
And it’s going to be warm again today, which means I’ve got to do more yard work. Tomorrow little one will be here and it’s supposed to be rainy and cold. For us. It’s all relative. It’s certainly not cold like it is up north. Here, we have lots of flowers blooming.
Okay, I’m off to write before these guys get here. Between 8-12. Will they arrive at 8? I’m ready! But I’m not counting on it!
I managed to get 4,000 words, while taking pictures of the birds in the rain. It rained, and rained, and rained yesterday. It was wonderful. We haven’t had much lately and it’s so nice to have a change of pace. Particularly since I wasn’t going anywhere, and the lighting was perfect for bird photography.
Yes, starlings are bad birds, like blackbirds and cowbirds that chase away all the other birds for the food. But this one, maybe it’s checking things out before it tells all its other friends to come and get it, but it didn’t bite. And it left, but not before I managed a few shots of it. I’ve never seen one before, so that’s always fun.
Okay, Little One should be here any second, and I’ve got to get ready. Non-word count day. But maybe I’ll get a little done when she leaves.
I finished edits on Night of the Billionaire Wolf and turned it in. Yay! Now I’m back to Red Wolf Christmas. It’s due in 2 weeks and I’m still working on it. It would be all right if I had it finished and was just editing it, but…it’s not finished. ugh.
This morning I moved a scene to a couple of chapters earlier. Which changes things for the next about 3 chapters. The butterfly effect. I haven’t figured out the ending, or what ties everything together yet. sigh. It’s got to come soon!
Okay, I’m off to work on it and hope your day is beautifully orchestrated.
But I didn’t make my word count. It’s not like I wasn’t trying. I’m editing, and that means removing as much as adding. Okay, so I repeated that HOW many times? Really???? No wonder my word count was going to town.
And yes, my characters are happy, happy, happy, but I have them smiling and laughing and chuckling HOW many times? Ugh. So there goes some more word count. I have to add NEW stuff. Conflict. Answer questions. Remember to turn on the Christmas music in the antique shop. At 105 degrees heat index, I keep forgetting it’s cold in the story and Christmas!
I want to get my word count for yesterday and today. I really, really do, but…it’s only going to get there if I can come up with some reasons for what’s happening.
I do NOT have writer’s block. I refuse to say it’s writer’s block. I don’t want to use that as a crutch. I just need to think…harder.
Okay, off to think harder and do more edits, but I’m nearly to the end of what I’ve written and then I don’t have anything else to do…but write.
Have a glorious day!!! I’m really, really, really going to get some word count today.
