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!

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!

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!

Trying to Get Things Done

There Be Monsters on the Prowl

Okay, had to start my blog over again because WordPress glitched. ugh.

I’m off to work on the book, need to do the materials request today, and then I can clean the house. Yep, that’s the celebration for finishing a book.

But I look forward to it!

Have a great day!

Carolina Anole–Friends in the Garden

I love the little Caroline anoles. They change colors, depending on where they’re sitting. I like their green color best. The bumblebees and honeybees are busy now, and unfortunately, so are the fire ants. I was out weeding yesterday, moving more Asian Lilies and finding the bad ants. The butterflies were fluttering around in mating dances too. It’s spring!

I wrote two of the scenes I needed and edited the prologue and first 2 chapters yesterday. Today is baby day and I have to take her to a drs. appt and we’ll probably get groceries. I keep running out. How is that happening? I think I’ve bought everything I need and then wait, there’s only one of those left in the package?

Hopefully, I’ll get some editing done today and write the final scene and finish editing tomorrow.

In the meantime, have a great day!!!

Spring is Here! I think!

Monarch butterflies frolicking in the garden, laying eggs, enjoying the warm weather and starting the next generation. I picked up flower seeds and dianthus and daylilies to plant.

Mostly sleeping through the night, yay! Coughing during the day, which I don’t mind as long as I sleep through the night! I wrote a little last night after the baby left. She’s so funny. When her mom and I talk, she talks too, just chattering away. Imitating us. lol But of course she doesn’t make any sense. Still, she knows a lot of vocabulary and sometimes she surprises us with words and phrases we didn’t think she knew. Plus, she repeats a lot of songs on TV, and she was counting with the Lil Baby Bum program yesterday. She can sort colors and she knows a lot of shapes. She’s growing up! It’s fun to see her learning so much. She has a mind of her own though!

Okay, I’m off to try and write some more, maybe get most of the rest of the book done today, baby’s here tomorrow, and then on Thursday I hope to finish any last scenes. I still need to write 3 more. After that, I have to read it all the way through.

Have a great day!! I can’t wait to finish the book so I can start on the next one. Can’t remember what it is though. The last one on contract is the red wolf Christmas book.

Viking Romance

Even fierce warriors can take a breather from their fighting to have a loving moment.

I have about 3 more scenes to write, otherwise, I think the book is done. I’ll have to re-read it from beginning to end. It’s 13,000 words over word count, yay! I just have to write the other scenes. Baby is supposed to be here. I’m still sick. She’s still sick. But at least for the last couple of nights I managed to sleep without coughing. I’m still coughing all day.

If she wasn’t here today, I’d be able to finish the book, most likely. I had to write several scenes yesterday, and the epilogue, so just couldn’t manage.

Have a great day, and I’m off to try to make it through mine.
