Pre-strung Christmas Lights

I spent several hours yesterday removing 7 strands of 8 of the Christmas light strings on the tree. Granted, it’s about 7 years old, but remember when I wondered if I had failed to plug in some of the lights since there were so many strands? Nope. They were just all dead.

This is a picture I took after adding more strands of lights.

Every year I’ve been in too much of a rush to pack Christmas away, but this time I had to know. And sure enough, tons of the lights were out. We have storms and colder weather next week so I wanted to put all my outdoor lights away too, and so now I’m ready for the new year. Kind of.

With the new year comes taxes and new deadlines!

Have a super day! I’m off to get my started!

It’s Coming!

2020 is nearly here! Are you ready? I was doing some last minute errands early this morning, hoping to beat the crowds!!! A guy behind me at the grocery store said to the clerk, “We had to get something to drink because the water tastes awful here.” I had to laugh. The water was fine here when I moved here. Crawford water was fine. Waco water is not.

My battery was going out on my scale, and you know you can’t know how much you’re overeating unless you can weigh yourself! *sigh* It’s the holidays, I keep telling myself. And then I remind myself that’s no excuse. lol

So do you have plans for the New Year? Writing for me!!! I finished two more scenes yesterday in Joy to the Wolves, the Christmas book for next year. I have one last one to revise. I plan to do that this morning. I also worked on Vampire Redemption, behind on my daily word count since I was working on Joy to the Wolves yesterday, but still got some done, so not a total loss.

I’ve been watching the Mandalorian and the Witcher series. I want to get back to Game of Thrones and watch it from the beginning. I think I reached 5 and then stopped because I got busy with writing contracts. I’m a binge watcher, and it’s hard for me to stop once I get started on a series. Which means I need to get my word count in before I get started on TV.

I have the same problem with playing RPGs. I get started and don’t want to stop. One more quest. One more big boss to defeat. Armor to upgrade. I was playing one where I was able to upgrade my armor to such an extent, I actually finished the game with ease. I loved it. I know. I know. Where is the challenge in that?

Merry Christmas Eve. I’m off to write!

Are You Ready to Listen to a Book?

Do you listen to audiobooks?

When I drove to work, I listened to them on the way there and back home, on trips, painted a whole room listening to one and was ready to paint the whole house, love to hear a book when I’m unable to read one or do anything else.

I just finished proofing and then approving The Shadow Elf (YA), half way done with proofing In the Dead of the Night, and have finished Forbidden Love and Demon Trouble Too (YA), both in review right now.  The Winged Fae, The Highlander, Huntress for Hire, and The Trouble with Demons are in process.

So I’m off to proof the rest of In the Dead of the Night, and once the narrator makes the necessary corrections, I can approve it, send a check to pay her, and then it’ll go into review. Once it’s done with the review, it’s available for the listening public. So much fun!

The great news is I have some review copies!!!

Happy New Years!

It’s time to bring in the New Year, let the North Star guide us, or not…

Are you ready for the New Year? Do you write the old year for a while? Or do you write the new date, but then a month later, suddenly write the wrong one? Like, slipping a cog???

Are you a jumpstarter into the new year, and doing all the things you said you would, but then begin to slack off a month or so down the line? Kind of like writing a book. Jumping into it. Going forth to conquer, and then getting into that sagging middle? I’m still talking about books, not waistlines.

Do you ever get the jump on the New Year, before the New Year, hoping the momentum will keep you going or trying to catch up on the things you planned for the old year before the new one rings in, and then by the New Year, you’re already burned out???

Do you just have fun on New Year’s Day, and not care anything about making some big concessions for the rest of the year?

I’ll be working on edits and maybe watch some Castle for fun.

Hope you have a lovely New Year’s Day, and a grand start to the rest of the year. 🙂
