Playing Around with Scrap Art

I finally, finally figured out where I’m going with the Billionaire. Kind of. It helped not to have little one here every night and day for a couple of days. Anyway, I’m on the home stretch, I think. I need to run some errands this morning, ugh, and I have to pick up my granddaughter this afternoon, so that will cut into my writing time, and I’ve got a repeat of something like that tomorrow. But hopefully, I’ll get this done by the weekend. I’m 900 words shy of word count. While editing, I was adding and cutting so much that I would have had it if I hadn’t cut over a 1,000 words yesterday, but that was good. It’s all good.

I have a scene in mind to write today, and I have 3 chapters left to edit, and then I still need to finish the book, but it’s getting there!

I had a nice letter from a fan today that she couldn’t put The Wolf Wore Plaid down after she started reading it. That is the greatest compliment a writer can get. And she loved how I had Guy injure his back and write about it realistically since she has back pain. I’ve injured my back and it’s something you can’t undo. Through the years since then, if I twist and lift a certain way, I’m in pain for days. Sometimes, I can manage to only re-injure it slightly, but other times, I really throw it out of whack. So yep, I know all about it.

She wanted to know if I would have more about Guy in a future story. Yes! I love it when readers are interested in new characters and want to see more of them. I figure when I write the last MacQuarrie’s brother’s story, I’ll pair him up in a movie with Guy like before, different castle, and then I’ll have to write Guy’s story.

While I’m running around on errands today, I think I’ll pick up more daylilies. When I put them in, they were pretty, but not that showy. Now that I’ve had some of them in for a few years, they are really showy. So it’s time for more. They do block out the weeds. And that’s what I really need. Showy flowers that bloom all the time and no weeds. A perfect garden!

Okay, got to get busy with the book, feeding the dogs, etcetera!

Hope you have a beautiful day! I’ve got to quit goofing off and get mine started!

Playing with Scrap Art with My Granddaughter

My granddaughter and I try to put together a picture a day when she’s here–using scrap art. I was trying to teach her the basics of drawing a house, building blocks. But she’s more into just wildly scribbling. My parents were both artists and I had hoped that maybe a grandchild might be an artist. I think some of it truly has to do with the genes.

Yesterday was Earth Day, forgot to mention it, but we planted oregano and thyme and chives in the planter box we put together. We still need more dirt and I want to put pavers in there to walk to the herbs so that it doesn’t fill with grass and weeds around it.

I only got about a 100 words on Billionaire during edits, but got up to chapter 11. I had a couple of ideas if I remember them this morning. It was at 3 am and I didn’t want to get up and write them down. And that can mean forgetting them by morning. lol

So no granddaughter today and that means that I hopefully can get to the end of the book and begin writing a bunch of new scenes that will finish the book!!

No baby yet. And my SIL cancelled his vaccination shot for today, thinking if she goes into labor today, he needs to be there for her.

Our vaccinations are lower than the country’s–23.7% for fully vaccinated, 27.2% for the country. Hopefully, that will pick up. I keep thinking that if people would just get it done, we could be able to open more things up, not have to wear masks all the time, avoid lengthy hospital stays, you know? Normalcy? Or near normalcy? They say that more women are getting shots than men. Hmmm.

Now the guys are supposed to be alpha heroes… So what’s the deal with that?

Okay, I’m off to get started on my writing.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!

Making Scrap Art

Image may contain: 1 person

I was writing yesterday, but my new obsession is creating scrap art. The golden jaguar at the bottom of the page on the left is a photo I took. The background was from Pixabay, the princess tower from Louise Nash’s freebies, the fur from Etsy fur photos, the word art, flowers and butterfly from Oscraps, the black jaguar from Renderosity. I used ink splotches to create the masks that made them appear like art scraps.

Curious Giraffes

For this one, I took a picture of a giraffe baby and junior and used a mask on a background from Pixabay. Then added flowers and a butterfly from Oscraps.

I did manage to get 3,000 words written on the novella. I only need about 3,000 more words to make my word count goal, but I have to figure out how to wrap the story up. Didn’t set my alarm last night and woke only 15 minutes before baby got here. ack! So I was rushing around getting ready.

She’s been tired and needy, so we’ve been cuddling and reading stories.

We’re off to walk in the heat before the sun gets too high in the sky, and the pool day after that.

Have a wondrous day!!!
