Vicious Cycle

This is me when I feel better. lol

Okay, I figure this is like a vicious cycle–and the powers that be are plotting against me. Before I finished proofing edits on Silver Town Wolf: Home for the Holidays, I got the blog tour stuff I need to do for the June release. And I’m behind on word count on Billionaire She-Wolf because of having to stop to do this, be sick, and take care of my granddaughter on what is normally my day off. I had to make up for being sick on Monday and couldn’t take care of her.

See why I try to get ahead? So I won’t be behind on my writing when other stuff comes up. I also had an idea on changes I want to make to Billionaire, so I’m not sure how that’s going to affect the word count. Going down? I imagine so.

I’ve been trying to take a short walk in the mornings, so now I’m back and ready to tackle the word count day. I turned in the edits last night for Silver Town. Yay!

Have a super day! I’m off to have fun with the story!

Okay, NOW I’ve Beaten the Bug!

X Marks the Spot!

It’s done! See, last time I said that, it wasn’t through with me. It was laughing it’s little green spindly head off at me while my soldiers were fighting it tooth and nail. And it was multiplying, getting out of control. And then it was getting weaker, losing the battle. Then it came back in short spurts of battle. But still, my troops were winning. Yes! And we won! I would like to say I was commanding my army against the invaders in such an exemplary manner that I truly was the reason for such good leadership and the win.

Maybe the banana and Gatorade yesterday helped. Maybe all the bed rest. Maybe just…hating to admit it…time made the difference. But yesterday I took care of my granddaughter, we walked, we played, I still am short of breath and feel weak, but no more stomach issues. Yay!

The bug is beaten! I want to do a million things I couldn’t before I got sick. I know I need to still take it easy, but, the bug is gone. (I hope.)

I HAVE to get my car safety inspected today so I can renew the car registration. I need to finish copyedits on Silver Town Wolf: Home for the Holidays so I can get back to writing on Billionaire She-Wolf. I need to shop for a mother-of-the-bride dress for my son’s wedding. Do you think anyone will notice if I wear the same one I wore for his first wedding?

Okay, I’m really off to get to work. Hope you are having a lovely day today. We have a misty rain, and I took a walk! Have a beautiful day.

The Virus was Annihilated!

At least I hope so. My granddaughter keeps bringing all this stuff home to me and usually, my immune system fights it. But the last two times, it couldn’t resist the allure. ugh.

I need to figure out what I can eat to get back my strength without irritating my stomach again.

I feel weak and shaky, but I hope I can eat better today and get my strength back. She will be back tomorrow. I hope she doesn’t give me anything else! And I hope she doesn’t get anything else!

I’m still behind on my writing because I suspect I will have her on Friday to makeup for not having her on Monday. Friday was supposed to be a writing day. But at least I feel better!

Okay, I need to feed the dogs, that are like, we aren’t sick, so feed us now!

Have a great one!!! I’m off to make mine great.

I lost 42 lbs over the Weekend!

Okay, yeah, that’s an April Fool’s.

But I haven’t been able to keep anything down, and I know this is a stomach virus, not food poisoning. No one else was sick this weekend after we celebrated my granddaughter’s birthday. And she was sick with this one weekend, probably the weekend before I took care of her this past week with having vomiting and diarrhea, and they thought she had food poisoning. It’s highly contagious and there’s nothing you can do about it but let it run it’s course.

It wreaks havoc with my writing though. They’re taking her to daycare today so Grandma can try and get better. But I’ll have her back on Wed and Fri then. I’m just hoping she doesn’t pick up anything more.

In reality, I’ve lost 6 lbs. Now, if only it would stay off!

Okay, I’m off to try and write. Hope you all stay good and healthy!!! I’m ready to be good and healthy!

I Feel Better Now…

Ready for a game of chess?

Have you ever felt really sick, nauseated, and you know if you could just get rid of what ails you, you’d feel better? Note to self: Do not throw up in sink. What a mess. So much better to use the toilet, if I could have made it in time.

My poor puppies were wondering what was going on with me at 1:30 in the morning. They knew it wasn’t time to get up.

I’ve been feeling so bad since early in the evening, couldn’t get to sleep in forever. I rarely, rarely, rarely vomit, no matter how sick I am. But I know if I can get rid of the food that’s causing me distress, I’d be able to move past the episode. Then I woke, feeling the nausea growing. I feel so much better now.

Food poisoning? Probably. *Sigh* Now maybe I can get some sleep. Since I couldn’t get to sleep earlier, I did manage to finish my word count for yesterday, one good thing.

Hope you have a great day! I know mine will be on track today.

The End and the Beginning

Time for Tea

I turned in Wolff Bros after working the rest of Wednesday and Thursday proofing it and I’m 2,000 word count behind on Billionaire She-Wolf. But now I hope to catch up.

I had a beginning, but no real plot. For a romance, I’ve been told, you have to have the hero and heroine meet early on, and so I had an idea for the meetup. Everyone’s on vacation, I’m trying to keep my story from getting so hugely populated, so I’ve started out with three people.

Now, I have to work in the plot. I was watching a program about Lorraine Bobbitt and that ordeal, and then they mentioned about Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic ice skaters and sabotaging Nancy’s career due to Tonya’s husband hiring a hitman. So this morning, I was thinking about that. And coming up with a plot for my current story.

In Wolff Bros, I have no body count at all. I usually end up with a high body count, or at least three or four. None? *sigh* I’ve already planned a dead guy in the beginning of this story. I’m back in the game.

That’s how I do it in my Mad Hatter kind of way. Sometimes I can come up with a plot from the outset, but sometimes, I have to just get them to meet and then go from there.

I’m off to write. Baby now has fifth disease, a red rash all over her face. This is all viral and it will just go away on its own, but her poor little immune system is just having fits with keeping up with all of this.

Have a great day and think happy thoughts! See something good in every day. Do a good deed when you can. It makes you feel better than anything you can buy! Happiness can be learned: https://www.businessinsider.com/im-taking-yales-class-on-happiness-already-working-2019-3

Baby Play Day

Need to be in My Reviewing Cave

Well, baby was dropped off and she’s still sick. *sigh* So is her momma. I finally settled her down with breakfast and preschool shapes cartoon and she seems to be doing better.

Maybe we won’t have a play day but a snuggle day instead. Have a great one!

Slow Writing Day, But…

Image may contain: food
Yummy Flat Tacos

My granddaughter was running a fever on Monday and since I’m still trying to get over the crud she gave me, my daughter stayed home with her. So, I had a day to make 2,000 words, right? Which I filled up with other stuff. Not that I didn’t need to do the other stuff. Sometimes when I’m getting near the end of a book, and I’m sick, I don’t get regular stuff done. So I’m playing catch up.

And, I had to work on beta read edits on Wolff Bros, which still needs to be turned in. Waiting on a couple of more emails from one beta reader to do the final 12 chapter edits, but in the meantime, I’ll also be rereading the first 10 chapters to make sure I didn’t add in new mistakes.

And I’m going to try and get my word count in today for Billionaire She-Wolf. I did write 1,000 yesterday.

It’s back to the grind, but I’m ready!!

Have a super day today!

It’s a Start!

Girl’s Best Friend

Okay, I’m excited to say I’ve started on Billionaire She-Wolf Ready for Action! I have the first 2,000 words, and from now on, except for granddaughter days, I hope to get 2,000 words a day. She’s running a fever again this morning and since I’m still trying to get over being sick, her momma is keeping her home. Which is a good thing for me!

That means I’m doing more spring cleaning, picking up bark mulch to spread on the flowerbeds (started to, but ran out), and pulling more weeds. But also, writing on my unscheduled day. Yay!

Hope you are happy, healthy and wise today… Enjoy!!

Done! Done! Done!

The Elf and the Dragons

Sometimes you can claim something as your own, and sometimes you need to just give it up to someone, or something, that wants it worse.

I’m done!!!!! 17,000 words over word count and the book is finished and I did the marketing materials and it’s done! Now the book is with my beta readers, I sent the marketing materials in, and I finished planting dianthus, daylilies and flower seeds and weeded some more.

I set up a folder for the next book: Billionaire She-Wolf Ready for Action. That’s my working title anyway. I have Chapter 1 done. As in Chapter 1. Not the chapter. But hey, it’s a beginning!

But today, I’m cleaning the house. And then, I’m going to continue thinking about the new book, and then begin to write it!

Hope you are having a great weekend! Mine is looking up!
