The End!!!

Elephants at Play

I ended up being sick yesterday too, but everyone seems to be feeling fine this morning. And I managed to finish Billionaire She-Wolf Ready for Action last night!! I sent it in, yay!!! Then I received 2 promo blogs to do for the 10th Anniversary Release of To Tempt the Wolf and I’m off to work on Hunting the Red Wolf novella.

BUT, the kids want to go swimming today first thing, I have babysitting duty while they have fun for their anniversary, and where does that leave me?

Not sure, but I’m going to TRY and write the two blogs today and type up the notes I have on Red Wolf so far!

At least that’s the plan! The picture of the foggy woods is by https://www.facebook.com/groups/Imaginationbyrowena/.

Okay, pool day is on! I’m off to get ready for the start of my whirlwind day!

Trying to Catch Up

Wolf picture I took at the International Wolf Center, Ely, MN

Usually when I’m so far behind on writing goals, I throw out my goals and start over. Not this time. I need to catch up. So I’m back to whittling down the discrepancy. It’s a push, but it’s what I need.

I’m down to 23,000 behind, from 26,000 words on Sunday. So that’s progress. But I have to go to my daughter’s place on Saturday to help her and friends celebrate my SIL’s birthday. *sigh*

Okay, baby’s not here today, so I’m trying to get my word count! I’m hoping to reach 50,000 words today. I was supposed to be at 72,000. See how this sneaks up on you?

Have fun, will you??? I’ll be in my bear cave writing.

A Little Fairy Gathering

A Little Fairy Gathering

I wrote 4400 yesterday! But I’m still behind. I need to write that every day (which won’t happen), to catch up. Unless…I have great ideas that keep carrying me forward. Wish…wish. But the toddler should be here any minute, and that shoots that down for today anyway!

Okay, I’m off to get ready for her–dogs put away until she gets in the house and has her breakfast and then we go from there. It’s cool this morning, wish it would always be this way through the hot summers, and 85 later today, so we’ll get some more wading pool time in.

Hope you have a gorgeous day!!!

Easter Egg Hunt–Dragon Fae Style

You never know what the Dragon Fae will be up to.

How did it get to be May 1st already? Does anyone else feel that way?

Still working on White Wolf to the Rescue novella. Way past word count, yay, but still finishing it. One of my editors asked when it would be done. When it is done. Truly. I’m working on it as fast as I can. There has to be some thought to the story, after all, and it doesn’t always come to me. I’m still re-reading, proofing and editing it and still need some scenes…*sigh*, but it should be done. Soon. When it is done.

Have a great day!!! Mine is going superbly!!! I think!

A Snuggle in the Woods

If you’re not a cougar, beware!

I’m having all kinds of trouble setting up my important stuff on my laptop–ie, having to change all my passwords. I really don’t have time for all this right now. ugh.

Have a super Saturday…I’m still grinding my teeth over passwords.

A Polar Blast is Heading This Way

Okay, so it’s time to get out some polar bear suits. Young man, put on a sweater, for heaven’s sake.

Baby is coming and I don’t feel like I’m making any headway on my stories. I did write the Walmart blog for You Had Me at Jaguar, yay! But I still haven’t caught up on Wolff brother word count, 1,000 words off, and I still need to start SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue.

I did figure out a couple of names for characters though. That’s always tough for me. You can’t have names starting with the same first letter, or too similar in sound, or that you’ve used before in the nearly 70 other stories. Uhm, okay. And I don’t care for unisex names, probably because I have one and it confuses everyone. And then I have to have good guy names and bad guy names. And I have to be careful that my good guys who might end up in another story (unplanned, but then readers fall in love with them and they have to have their story) and all of a sudden, that name is not heroic enough, or sexy enough. And meh, I picked the wrong name. Seriously. A lot of gnashing of teeth goes into coming up with names.

And that’s my story! And I’m sticking with it.

Hope you are staying warm if you’re being hit with the polar weather!!! Most of us aren’t used to it, and they’re warning about being out in the really frigid weather and getting frostbite. Next week, unless the weather changes, it’s going to be 77 degrees. Unbelievable.

Have a great day! I’m off to play with baby.

What Do You Really See?

I took the fish picture at an aquarium in Omaha. It’s amazing what you can find in a fishy world when you’re really looking! I have mermaids and mermen in my World of Elves series and in my Magic of Inherian series.

I’ve been removing Christmas lights and putting away all the Christmas decorations, so running late on everything!

Hope your day is fantastically great! I’ve got to get back to the book! Oh, wait, tonight is New Year’s Eve. Are you having fun?

I’m writing and later, I’ll play some more of Hero U: Rogue to Redemption. I do much better as a paladin, a warrior, even a ranger. I’ve already stacked up 40 demerits. At 100, I get kicked out of school. Let me explain, though. You have to wear the school uniform, but I can’t afford the school uniform. Which means I have to sneak by the mean guy all the time, and sometimes I manage, and sometimes, I get caught. Besides the random: giving demerits for stuff I have no control over. Aww, come on. You’d think he hoped I flunked out. Well, he does. At least I passed my first two rogue tests. (I had to start over because I failed them both the first time around and I had 65 demerits. lol)

The game is like the old Hero’s Quest games, so it’s fun. But addictive. I’m only going to play for an hour. Only. An. Hour. I have a book to write.

Right. Then I’m back at it. Okay, have a great day!!! Before it’s all gone!! And Happy New Year!!!

Every Wolf Needs a Friend

I was playing around with a composite that includes a picture of Eilean Donan Castle. This was one I took while I was in Scotland a while back.

Getting excited about A Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing coming out!

But for now, we’re getting some rain, yay!!! And I’m working on SEAL Wolf Surrender edits and Cougar Magic. Only 17,000 words to go to reach word count!

Have a wonderful day!!

Random Fun

My friend Vonda sent me the beautiful rabbit, and my puppies were hunting the robo vacuum. Max, the white havanese actually caught the brush on the side, and he RARELY barks, but he was barking at the “monster” in the house. lol

And I had fun with steamer chairs–the free ones are here to use: https://kibblywibbly.deviantart.com/art/Steamer-Chairs-stock-photo-free-to-use-531776580

Okay, got to get back to writing!! Have a beautiful day!!!

Birthday Celebration Time!

We’re celebrating my son-in-law’s and my birthday today–my son sent the flowers, and I was having fun with adding a fairy to the dandelion photo.

I’m off to feed the puppies before they starve to death–that’s what they’re telling me anyway. And back to work on the story before we begin partying.

I have to get this done!!! I worked on about 3 more chapters last night after baby went home.

I’ve been watching I Shouldn’t Have Survived. It’s a really good series, but there’s a reoccurring theme: people don’t let anyone know where they’re going, when they’re returning, they don’t take satellite phones, cell phones, GPS locaters, they don’t take water or food, they go it alone.

Yep. And then they get into trouble and no one even knows about it. Now in a few cases, they had the food and water and lost it in a sunken boat, or avalanche, or while pinned under a vehicle. But the avalanche story and the pinned under the vehicle cases? Both were alone and didn’t tell anyone when they were returning and where they were going.

Another thing was checking the weather. Ignoring it or just not checking. And pushing forward, when they should have stayed put. One got lost in a blizzard and kept pushing to reach the top. He was an amateur hiker, lost all sense of direction, had told people where he was going to be, but he ended up in a different valley, and fell off a cliff. Two different cases got lost in the outback, kept walking. Everyone knew where they were supposed to go, and searched for them there, but they didn’t stay put.

Clothing issues. No one planned to be gone for long. Hour, three hours. Most of the places were hot during the day, and the temperature would drop drastically at night. Hypothermia would set in. They were always wearing light clothing. And most of the time they couldn’t be seen against the vast landscape of desert or snowy mountains or the never-ending sea.

I do have some survival crises in my stories–usually just read tons of similar stories on the internet–avalanche in one book, rip current in another, falling through a snowbridge in another. Since I have to keep my main characters smart, I can’t have them doing dumb things like the survivors did. It has to be a real accident. Nothing they could plan for. Or in the case of an avalanche, that knuckleheads created by running up and down a slope on snowmobiles and the wolves had to rescue them.

But it helps to watch shows like this to get new ideas!

Have a great one! I’ve got to get to work on the story before I can play.
