Owl at Wolf Canyon. They have taken in owls and bald eagles that have been injured. My son took the picture, I did the photo art, trying to emphasize the details on his feathers more and take away the background distractions. Focus was more on the tree, but this is the first time he’s used my camera. Wish I hadn’t broken my wrist before visiting him. It will be the last time I’ll get to see the reserve. They’ll be moving to Japan in April.
For those who celebrate it, hope you all are having a great Labor Day weekend. I managed 3500 words yesterday. I wanted to get to 4000, but we went out to eat with my SIL’s parents and the kids and took photos at a park and I didn’t get home until 8:30 PM. So I finally just worked on some edits.
I updated my word count calendar and I’m going to make 84K by deadline, if I just manage 2,000 words each working day. So still need to do 3,000 for four more days.
Can you imagine telling a dragon what to do? Just pretend it’s a very big lapdog. Feed it well. Pet it nicely. Speak soothingly. And always remind him that you are the boss.
Now that you’ve had your lesson 101 in being in charge, I’m back to writing and trying to take charge of my characters. It’s not working. They often take over. And then there are the dogs. The granddaughter–toddler, you know. But in the end, it all works out.
All kinds of different birds, all beautiful in their own feathers.
I’m off to do all kinds of things early this morning and then have to pick up sick baby from daycare. Today was supposed to be my baby day off, but I know she sleeps better here, if she can sleep. It means no writing though. I did manage 2,000 words yesterday and finished a bear I need to ship this morning.
Are they kidding? Painful sore throat, teeth hurt so they feel they need to be pulled, can’t breathe, coughing…
Get plenty of rest???? I wish!
Even though I felt terrible yesterday, I managed to proof the last two fae print books, and two of the ebooks.
Baby is coming. She’s the one who gave me this. I love her anyway. 🙂 <3 She picks up everything from the daycare. I usually am lucky to dodge most of it. But I caught what she had in October, and now again….
All I need to do is rest though. Yep. Easy. Peasy. AFTER…she goes home for the night! And IF all the stuff that’s keeping me awake, goes away. No problemo.
