Merry Christmas Early!

So we’re celebrating Christmas today. Last night my daughter emailed me and asked if I got the tortillas. You know, for the breakfast tacos. Now, when I picked up the dinner fixings on Thursday, I asked her what else I needed. Nothing.

So no tortillas for breakfast tacos. She said that meant they were deconstructed breakfast tacos. Just remember that. If you don’t have all the ingredients for a meal, they’re….deconstructed. lol

I figured I get up early enough before they all wake up and I’d get my daughter and myself a drink from Starbucks on the way to the grocery store. My son-in-law only drinks Dr. Pepper.

Now, yes, we have a lot of crime in the area, we’re a suburb of Houston after all, BUT we also have a lot of nice folks. When I pulled up to the window to pay for our drinks, the cashier said that the man ahead of me had bought my drinks. Merry Christmas.

You know how that made me feel? Like spreading the cheer. What a sweet thing to do. There are indeed truly nice people in the world.

I told the Hispanic cashier at the grocery store about no tortillas for breakfast tacos as I was buying them and she laughed. I’ve never had them so this is all a mystery to me. I told her about my daughter saying they were deconstructed. If you can make someone smile today, go for it!

My daughter emailed me and said little one is running around like crazy, and my son-in-law is zonked out.

That’s okay. I need to blog, get my camera ready, work on a vampire romance and when they get here, have a truly lovely family Christmas.

Merry Christmas early!

Happy Halloween!!

Thirty-three degrees this morning. Brr, that’s cold for us this early!!! Especially when it’s been so hot so late and drops that drastically!

Some of my fun creations for the season!

And I wonder how come I don’t have time to write!

Have a beautiful day! It’s soooooo cold here!

Creating Fun Adventures

This is from Oscraps, so much fun to use to create storybook pictures!

Speaking of which, my granddaughter is here and I’ve got to run!

Have a day filled with adventure. And hopefully you will only run into friendly monsters.

The Beginning is Not Always the Beginning

As a writer, I have to remind myself of that. Sometimes, I have to get the backstory out, just so I know a little about the situation. I can’t plot out a story from start to finish. So I have to find my way.

I wrote the beginning, but it’s not the beginning. It doesn’t have any oomph. But you have to get started. You can’t edit what you haven’t written. And sometimes I find that the beginning is maybe a few pages down, or even later in the story. Or, it’s just to help me get started and I can get rid of it later.

In any event, on another sleepless night, I was thinking of how I wanted to start the story. Kind of. I don’t plot.

I took this photo of the orangutan momma and her baby eating lettuce leafs at the Waco zoo, but the background was so ugly and cluttered, I wanted to emphasize the momma and baby so added an oil texture.

Okay, I’m off to write before I have to go to the dentist. Who all hates going to the dentist????? I have nothing against dentists. They are good for my teeth. I just hate what has to be done to my teeth!

Have a great one!

Wild Wolf Growling

The snarling cougar and red wolf are created using a paint mask splatter and then clipping the animal to the mask, then adding a texture!

I ran more errands than I planned yesterday, wrote a 1,000 words on the novella, and hope to have it done by Saturday. Then I’m starting on the full length novel, Red Wolf Christmas.

In the meantime, I received more promo blogs to do, but I’m concentrating on the novella first! Need to finish it and send it to my beta readers so I can edit it again and send it to my editor.

Baby’s on her way, and that means not much writing can be done today. Hope you all are having a great day!

Growing up on Mythology, Mysteries, and Thrillers

Centaurs in love. When I need a break, I create pictures, take pictures, play with my dogs, play with my granddaughter, garden, weed, weed, weed….but mostly write.

I will never lose my love of fantasy though. It takes me out of the drudgery of life: didn’t I just clean that toilet? What’s the ring doing there again? Weeds? I pulled them all. How come there are more now than before? Groceries? I have no groceries again? Wasn’t I just at the store?

Yep, fantasy is the stuff of fun.

Have a great, fantastical day. Now it’s time to get back to Billionaire She-Wolf and that means fun!

Yes! I Think I’ve Got It!

Maybe not, but I’m moving in a direction that I might need to change. Still, I have a story rolling, rolling, rolling, and I’m excited! I love it when I get an idea and can start moving to the end. I can change it. Sure I can. But I have to have something down on “paper” before I can change it.

I thought I was going to be behind yesterday on Wolff Bros story because I wrote all day on SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue. But I must have been WAY ahead on word count, 3500 instead of 1500 because I was right where I was supposed to be. Which is good because today, I’m going to be behind. I’m concentrating on the novella because it has to be turned in sooner. I wrote 6000 words yesterday!! I hope to get 4,000 today and I’ll be close to halfway done. That’s the miracle of novellas. They don’t take as long to write.

Okay, I’m off to get going because it’s almost 8 am and I don’t even know how that happened. Do you?

Have a beautiful day!!! Mine is going great!
