The fox was a flat watercolor and I added “fur” and the wings are fractals, added light. also added eye.
NaNoWriMo is coming up for the month of November. I’m usually in the middle of a book when it starts and I have so many books started, I don’t want to start another one. So this time, I’m going to write Wolf Pack. It’s a novella and I should be able to finish it over the month. Angel Fae is close to being done, as far as writing the story. I have 43K, plan at least 10K more, that always changes as I try to wrap up a story and have more loose ends to cover. I have a book cover for both, yay. I need to start writing the books I have covers for!
I don’t have a start on Wolf Pack, but I LOVE the cover by Rainy Day Art. I’ve just never had time to write it. It’s going to be more of a historical wolf story, where the wolves began. So that should be fun.
As soon as it’s light out, I hope to get out and weed though first thing. It will be hot every afternoon again until next week, I think.
Hope you all have a wonderful day. I need to get going with mine!
Okay, I’m off to work. As soon as it’s light out, I’m weeding. Nice and cool out, but it’s going to get hot again next week. But right now I’m doing edits on Angel Fae and then I can start writing again to get my word count in.
Barely got my word count yesterday on Angle Fae. I had a ton of stuff to do. I’ve still been painting the scarecrow’s face and I just messed it up so badly this morning when I went to add some tea staining around the eyes and ended up getting the freshly painted new black on one eye dragged where it shouldn’t have been. ugh. I told you. It could look great until I messed with the face, and it was looking pretty good–until then. *sigh*
Okay, I’m off to try and get more writing done. I’ll be doing some yard work too. It’s 60 this morning, yay!
In Legend of the White Wolf, I have Bigfoot hunters, and so in the latest red wolf Christmas story, I’ve gone back to the hunters.
I’m off to work on Angel Fae. I have 32K and want at least 55K on it. I had some ideas floating in my head when I woke in the middle of the night, but the problem with that is they just…float away.
I’ve been weeding the backyard like crazy. My daughter wants a crepe myrtle, and a couple of esperanzas and I’m going to see if I can find some baby ferns. They’re going to weed this weekend, so I’ll go out and dig up volunteers that I can find. I’m not sure on the ferns, but I do have some baby esperanzas and crepe myrtles.
Okay, I’m off to write. Been outside weeding before it gets too hot! I need to do a TON more, but I also need to get my word count in and a million other things done. Plus, I notice when I do too much, my wrist that was broken begins to hurt a lot. The tendons are still healing. I try to pull mostly with my other hand, but sometimes I just need two hands to get the really tough weeds out.
Have a fun, spooky day! And when things go bump in the night…
Hey, it’s your prompt, your story! What do you do?
Flashlight? Turn on lights? Stumble around in the dark? Hide under the covers? Go back to sleep? Send the dogs in search of it? Ha! My dogs would stick close to me so I’d protect them! Check out the basement? Of course! First thing on my list to do if I had a basement. Walk down those rickety steps, creaking all the way, waking the dead, and any spooky spirits about…
Okay, yeah, I know, it’s YOUR story. So what would YOU do?
I managed to get most of the edits done on Dawn of the Jaguar. I need to finish them up this morning. Little one is staying overnight from about 3:30 on so I wanted to get this done and start proofing it one last time.
I did manage to finish creating the title page for the first book in the fae series. I just took this picture on my computer, which caused the strange marks on the page. I want to do this with each of the fae series to give it uniformity. I created the fae with Daz3D and I’ll make a different one for each. 🙂
I was out weeding this morning. It’s nice and cool in the mornings, though it’s going to be heating up mornings again. And we’re still getting to 90 during the day.
I’ve always wanted to do this and I finally did! I need to create one for the World of Elves and for the Magic of Inherian. It really helps for me to visualize where things are in my fantasy worlds. But I wasn’t sure how to do it.
I read all of Falcon Fae–that’s a great book, if I do say so myself–and I am going to incorporate some of the characters in that one in Angel Fae now.
I finally managed to get to the grocery store yesterday–we had flood warnings on Friday–5″ of rain. So that means everyone goes crazy, not knowing if we’ll have deliveries, not knowing if it will go on and on, which they were predicting, and buys out the store. Here it was Tuesday following the storms, and lots of items were still out. *sigh*
One of these times I need to go to the store before the storm hits! I was running out of potatoes and chocolate. Horrors!
Okay, off to work on Angel Fae. Have a wonderful day!
I took the photo of the giraffes at the Omaha zoo and then changed their setting. Usually, at most zoos I’ve been, the giraffes are standing on dirt, no grass anywhere, but these at the Omaha zoo have a woodland setting and it really was pretty, but to eliminate all the distraction, I changed out the background to showcase the giraffes.
I have had so many deadlines I’ve been trying to meet and I realized that my Jingle Bell Wolf is coming October 26 and my promo blogs are due today. Ack.
I went to grab the 4 excerpts that they wanted and no clean manuscript to do it from. I did one promo blog and turned it in. I need to write two more blogs. I did manage to write the two synopsis that I needed for A United Shifter Christmas and turned them in. I finished the last of Dawn of the Jaguar, and now am proofing it. I’ll get that done today, and need to write the blogs and send Dawn off to my beta readers. But I have little one here today, so we’ll see what I can get done! And then I need to proof A United Shifter Christmas one last time and I’m free and clear! Yay! To get to work on the next project.
Have a beautiful day! It cooled down this morning, finally!
