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

Mad Hatter Water Fun

It was  raining while I took these pictures! But my friend took me here to show me the water fun. It was by the pool for one of the resorts.

I’ve started Billionaire Wolf Christmas and am working on  proofing Falcon Fae. 🙂

Hope you have a fun day!!

Mad Hatter Tea Party–Draw a Mad Hatter

On a paper plate on top of your head! Elizabeth actually had the best, most complete drawing of a person-like character. 🙂 mad-hatter-tea-party-elizabeth-paperplate-contest-900-077

Best Mad Hatter drawing won!

More games and pictures later.

I’m still behind on my writing. I had to crash a seaplane so I’ve been doing tons of research on them for the book. Did you know that a lot of places don’t allow seaplanes to land on waterways in their states? That many don’t allow a seaplane to carry external loads, like canoes and kayaks? I’ve watched way too many plane wrecks, trying to get a feel of what it would be like.

Landing gear up? Down? One airplane landed on it’s belly, the pilot trainee forgetting to put the gear down. But he did a great job of getting it back in the air and landing with the gear down the next time. Yes, it did damage to the plane when he landed with the gear up. Seaplanes that have landing gear flip when the landing gear is down. So it’s best to have them up for water landings. 🙂

Rough water, gusty winds can make it difficult to land, but also smooth glassy water because it’s harder for the pilot to judge where the water begins.

See? So I’m behind, but it’s because I have to do so much research. I had one scenario in mind, but it wouldn’t work based on the research. So I had to rewrite all of it, and when I did that, I have some other scenes that I need to change because I did some of the stuff earlier now. *sigh*

Will all of the research be in the book? Nope. But I still need to research to find out if they can do what they do.

I’m also getting Dreaming of the White Wolf Christmas 2nd edits, need to make a few minor changes due next week. AND, I have to write a novella to incorporate in the rerelease of Heart of the Wolf. It will be the 10th anniversary of it’s release next January. Plus, I need to write a letter in the book, all due mid-March. And the book I’m currently writing is due April 1st, when the baby is due.

I also have a writing retreat to go to, first one ever. Have no idea what to expect. I scheduled no writing word count on those days, because it’s a long trip, and I have no idea if I’ll get any writing done at all. But maybe I can catch up???

We were under a tornado warning yesterday morning. But other than thunderstorms, we were fine. Have rain again today, which brings March flowers, right?

Have a great day! I’ve got to get to work!

Mad Hatter Tea Party–the Treats and Tea

mad-hatter-tea-party-cake-900-014The cakes were all delicious. Everything on the pink cake was edible. The pictures on the cake were rice paper. I ordered the Eat Me cards from Amazon. I had some other kinds with Alice and all on them, but I must have missed getting pictures of those. 🙁  mad-hatter-tea-party-elizabeths-cakes-900-038mad-hatter-tea-party-900-heart-sandwiches-043mad-hatter-tea-party-beautiful-pot-900-005mad-hatter-tea-party-silver-tea-party-set-stephanie-900-026mad-hatter-tea-party-tea-009One of Jennifer’s friends, Elizabeth, made the beautiful cake and petite fours. She also made cucumber sandwiches and we had heart-shaped tuna salad sandwiches, fruit and tea.

The silver set was on loan, Jennifer’s friend’s sister, was generous enough to polish it and offer it for the party.

One of the ladies had the beautiful working teakettle on the stove.

There were several other teapots on loan, but I missed getting a picture of them. 🙁

The food was great. I’ll share about the games and decorations later. 🙂 Back to writing!

Word Count…Ready for an UnBirthday Party

Bad news/Good news.

On word count. The bad news is I’m behind. The good news is I scheduled myself off for the weekend because of the party and I was planning to go to a brunch on Sunday. Soooo, I canceled on the brunch, I’m as ready as I’ll ever get for the party, and I have some time before everything kicks off to write this morning and all day Sunday.  I need 3400 words to reach my 16,000 word goal.

Hmmm, well, I’m really not getting anywhere with writing, but I’m having fun. And it’s party time. Almost. 🙂

🙂 Have a wonderful UnBirthday Today.
