Well, I’m spending way too much time on reading articles about the coronavirus, and need to spend more time thinking and writing.

But lots of articles about what could work has come out of this. Like the use of copper–which we no longer use:

Canceled trip to Seattle/Vancouver–it was supposed to be for the end of April. So had to cancel on the kennel, Amtrak, still need to do the airline reservation, but they said to wait until 72 hours before the flight leaves. I’ll probably try on Monday. Thankfully, I had trip insurance and it seems that means I can get a voucher for flying some other time.

I’ve been staying home, though we don’t have an order in place for it here, but they’re not doing hardly any testing either, so who knows how many we really have who are sick with the virus. And it can easily be spread when someone has it before they’re showing symptoms. So, the next time you cast an evil eye at someone who has allergies–post nasal drip, and a cough–remember that person might be perfectly healthy. It’s the guy or gal on the other side of you who looks as healthy as can be who could be carrying the virus.

So in other news, my editor said they were giving my Highland Wolf book the title of: Wolf in Plaid. It will come out April 27, 2021. So excited! Love the title. Can’t wait to see the cover and share.

Reporting on the Goodwill News during these difficult times:

Florida distillery drops booze for sanitizer

A Florida craft distillery has halted making alcoholic beverages in favor of hand sanitizer – and it’s giving the stuff away for free. Copper Bottom Craft Distillery in Holly Hill announced the BYOB offer – you bring the bottle, they will fill it – on Wednesday. Within hours they had given away 20 gallons, mostly in 4-ounce pours. Customers included representatives from a sheriff’s office and a fire department. There were obstetricians, medical clinic workers, school teachers and service industry professionals.

“We’re just trying to spread some goodwill,” said Jenni Craig, who owns the business with her husband, Jeremy, and his parents. “This is a crazy time going on right now, and we want to do what we can to help.”

In You Had Me at Wolf, I have a St. Bernard named Rosco. He carried a little barrel of doggy treats around his neck at the ski lodge and was a rescue dog. I loved this picture circulating for our emergency times! One of my fans said after she saw this posting: Help! I need help! lol
Keep a sense of humor. It will help to get through the dark days ahead.

I am determined to get more writing done today! Have a good one. Hunker down. Change everything you own out to copper. Good luck with that!

A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words, and Yet…

A picture can inspire a million stories.

I took this picture yesterday, inspired by what others have done with water, that I can’t seem to do. But, I loved what I captured anyway, so this is one of the images I caught.

The Original

The Original–only resized, but otherwise just like I caught it.  Rich, opulent, a royal’s golden water because only the royals would have golden water spilling from the tap.

But I wanted to see what would happen if I played with the colors a bit. How different would the story be then.

Brass

Brass–darker, more mysterious, Aladdin’s lamp

Olive

Olive–a Druid’s home, connected with all things green

Silver

Silver–rich, a werewolf’s nightmare (It’s nearly Halloween, right? So I get to keep up with the whole spooky thing)

Black and White

Black and White–a chess game, either…or, life or death

Copper

Copper–or plum, a touch of whimsical

So you see, a picture can turn into all kinds of different stories by changing the color a bit and changing the mood a lot. The same with writing scenes. I was trying to decide on the perfect bedroom for a hot, alpha jaguar male. I looked up male bedrooms and they had a lot of purple featured. Not like dark purple, a royal color, the color only allowed to be worn by the royals. But more soft purple that I would think perfect for a young girl’s room.

A friend sent me a link that was perfect. Black and white, touches of red, but the best? A zebra rug. Now, as he’s a jaguar, he wouldn’t be hunting zebra in South America, but he is a hunter, and a zebra rug was perfect.

So which of these pictures would inspire you? Which do you like the best? Which would feed into your fantasy?

I’m off to write, so behave yourselves and still manage to have a wonderful TGIF!  🙂
