It was such a hectic day yesterday and I had my granddaughter for a sleepover, so I only managed nearly to 33K. Still trying to get there. She’s still here and we’re going to ballet and then Christmas shopping with her mom, so lots more fun before I settle down to write. She wanted to create a colorful unicorn in MidJourney and here is her creation. 🙂 Next is a colorful tiger, butterfly, bat, the list goes on.
The temperature dropped drastically last night. I went to take the dogs out at 5 p.m. and it was down to 43. From 83, that was a drop. Brrr. But it’s fun to wear some of my warmer clothes for a change!
So I’m off to catch up on a few things before little one wants me to do something with her. She’s drawing and watching a show for a while.
A little fantasy can be better than reality. And in reality, the unicorn is the official national animal of Scotland. I love Scotland. How cool is that?
I’m about halfway through on a 4th round of edits on Jingle Bell Wolf–my own, not editor’s. I still need to add some things to the earlier chapters, but I’m moving forward to change anything in the last chapters that need to be clarified.
I realized that the editor had moved some sentences to other places that she felt made more sense, which was fine, until I began reading the passages and realized the switch changed POVs midstream. I’m really careful about not doing that, so I had to fix all the POV issues then. One little change can make all kinds of new issues. I could just imagine not catching that now, and then another editor would say I switched POVs and me wondering how I’d made the mistake!
I’m off to work on a little word count on White Wolf, and I did some more on Angel Fae yesterday. I was making the changes on Jingle Bell Wolf also this morning…And I haven’t gotten to the bears yet.
I love fantasy. Okay, so I did it! I wrote the 6,000 words to catch up on Highland Wolf yesterday. Today’s goal is 2,000, hoping to get 4,000!
It’s warmer out, yay! And I’ll try and get some more weeding done. I do it daily, every time I take the dogs out. And I did 3 composites for my neighbor yesterday of their granddaughter. She’s just adorable. I took her out for this composite and added a fairy and flamingo instead to show off!
I had fun creating this from a DAZ3D unicorn, and Oscraps.
Okay, the words I love hearing: I love the book/novella, and it’s off to bookmaking! It’s the Red Wolf Novella that will come out in Seduced by the Wolf 10th Anniversary release.
I’m behind on my writing, but hope to make it all up this weekend. I have little one here, so today it won’t happen. I didn’t plan to have her today.
So I dodged the bullet on oral surgery, hopefully. I have a small stone in a salivary gland under my tongue. Why? Dehydration. Drinking too much tea and not enough water. Maybe using antihistamines too.
Anyway, so I have to get lemon drops to suck on. I couldn’t find any at my grocery store. I got sweet tart lollipops, the only thing I could find that might help. yuck. But I can’t suck on one all day when little one is here. Right away she wanted one. So we’re going to a different grocery store that says they have it. My SIL was instructed by my daughter to make sure I had some already. lol
Okay, off to type up some of my notes while she’s preoccupied!
So I go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning and learn I have calcium deposits in the saliva gland on the floor of my mouth. Of course it’s rare to have it under your tongue. Why not?
So my day was to write, instead I have to go in for oral surgery this morning. ugh. And tomorrow I have little one again, so that day is going to essentially be a non-writing day, even though it isn’t supposed to be either. *sigh*
Have a great day. I hope mine gets a whole lot better.
Sometimes my mind drifts to fairy worlds. I’ve got to get back to the real world of jaguar and wolf shifters.
In the one photo where baby is sitting by the unicorn, I changed the overall colors, added the foreground flowers and butterflies, painted the light rays and colors on the unicorn’s mane and tail and horn. On the second one, I loved the way the unicorn background was, so I added baby and a rainbow. My main effort is attempting to make baby appear to be part of the picture. She was actually sitting on the rocking horse when I took this picture. Momma was holding onto her, of course!
Oh and I reached 15,000 words, 65,000 to go! Woohoo!
