All about the Money…

Granddaughter’s here, so am trying to get this out while she’s playing and watching Finding Dory.

When I was making this it made me think of:

Money, money, money, M…O…N….E…Y
O’Jays–For the Love of Money.

If you listen to the music, don’t blame me if it gets stuck in your head. It did in mine. LOL

Okay, I’m off to work on signing more books to ship. Hope to get the rest of them to the post office today. Maybe tomorrow. We’ll be playing in the wading pool later. Very hot, even at 5 am.

If you have SEAL Wolf Surrender already, hope you’re loving it! Have a fun day!!!

Remember the Fallen

It’s Memorial Day, observed, and I wished to take a moment to give tribute to those who have fallen during their time in active service.

We’re celebrating my son-in-law’s birthday today. He doesn’t know it, but I’ve decorated everything in Spiderman decorations, since that’s his favorite superhero.

I’m behind on my writing again, and I think my daughter will be taking care of her daughter tomorrow due to the holiday, so hope to catch up a little!

Have a beautiful day!!! The partying starts at 3, so trying to get some writing done!!! More books have gone out. Still have about 20 to sign and ship.

Trying to Catch Up

Wolf picture I took at the International Wolf Center, Ely, MN

Usually when I’m so far behind on writing goals, I throw out my goals and start over. Not this time. I need to catch up. So I’m back to whittling down the discrepancy. It’s a push, but it’s what I need.

I’m down to 23,000 behind, from 26,000 words on Sunday. So that’s progress. But I have to go to my daughter’s place on Saturday to help her and friends celebrate my SIL’s birthday. *sigh*

Okay, baby’s not here today, so I’m trying to get my word count! I’m hoping to reach 50,000 words today. I was supposed to be at 72,000. See how this sneaks up on you?

Have fun, will you??? I’ll be in my bear cave writing.

Every Wolf Needs a Friend

I was playing around with a composite that includes a picture of Eilean Donan Castle. This was one I took while I was in Scotland a while back.

Getting excited about A Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing coming out!

But for now, we’re getting some rain, yay!!! And I’m working on SEAL Wolf Surrender edits and Cougar Magic. Only 17,000 words to go to reach word count!

Have a wonderful day!!

Done! Done! Done!

Axel chilling, and on the move. Arctic wolf who is acting all alpha. I’m in a purple mood. That’s good! Love purple. The Arctic wolf pictures are mine, and in the one with Axel lying down, his brother photo bombed it, so I changed out the background and added a purple blur, purple texture, and purple solar flare.

Okay, so I finished writing all the scenes yesterday after baby left, yay! Put together the table for the printer, and it wouldn’t fit inside like I’d hoped, but I still managed to consolidate some stuff and it looks so nice! It was easy to put together too, which was really great, considering having to do so much else yesterday.

So I’m now reading the story through before I send it to beta readers (while edits on SEAL wolf are nagging at me to get to them). I’m on ch 4, with 28 chapters and an epilogue to get through–104,000 words! This is my last time to fix mistakes and tidy things up a bit, and see if there are any loose ends left before I send it to beta readers. And this is the really fun time. The book is done!!! Written, from beginning to end. Woohoo! And I get to read it for enjoyment, and smoothing out.

Okay, off to read some more and EXERCISE. 🙂 When I read, I put my keyboard and mouse up on metal stands I got at Hobby Lobby, usually use them for teddy bear displays, and then I can walk or jog in place. It doesn’t work when I’m writing scenes, but I walked 5 miles last week each of two days, when I was proofing another manuscript!

What it looks like in reality, but when I’m in the writing world, what it really looks like. A whole world of unlimited, fantastical possibilities!

Have a great day!!!

Having a Bit of Fun with Photoshop

Got my word count, but I was having some fun with some photo manipulations too, and taking care of all the puppies.

I’m still working on the Silver Town Wolf story, but I wanted to work on the cover for Deputy Stryker Hill’s cover too. He looks to be having some fun for New Year’s, but it’s not all fun and games. I’m hoping to have his story out by New Year’s.

I’m also still working on the next polar bear shifter story.

My computer has been hanging up, too much stuff going on, and not enough space on my hard drive. So I had to transfer files and that was slowing things down even more. It’s been so hot, I was trying to water a little last night and I saw tons of dragonflies, skipped watering, and grabbed my camera. If my computer will run okay, I’ll share some tomorrow.

Okay, off to write! Have a great day!!!

It Was One of THOSE Days

Have you ever had one of THOSE days? Sure you have. I think one of mine morphed into THREE of THOSE days. That was horrible.

First, the blue octopus arrived. Yep. Three times a charm? Nope, three times and STRIKE OUT. Now…I’m really patient. Truly. I. Am. But it’s time for a refund. They’re not going to get it right. Ever.

Then I went to pick up my grandbaby at daycare, and she was a cranky pot, not enough sleep, but my daughter came by to pick her up from me and said Tuesday was when she needed me to pick her up. BUT, her message to me said tomorrow. And I thought she’d written the email on Sunday. So tomorrow was yesterday, Monday. Now I have to pick her up for real today. That means struggling to get my word count done in time. Ack.

Boltz at 2 years old, then at the pond, he’s 6 years old, looking for fish in the pond. The first picture was in the fall. The second in summer.

Then…yes, there was more. My INTERNET was out!!!!!!!!! Do you know how much that sets me behind? Yes, I wrote more. Eight thousand words. Not because the internet was out. I finally had all kinds of great ideas and ran with them. And ran with them. And ran with them. I couldn’t stop the flow. Love it when that happens. Hope it happens like that again today! Anyway, up to 42,000 words and I’m over halfway done. At least for minimum word count. It will be longer.

So you know my two other ideas I had for conflict, I couldn’t do it. They resolved them. But then, the greatest conflict of all popped into my head. See, I’m a pantser (writing by the seat of my pants) and NO WAY could I come up with that in a plotting outline.

That’s it! Today I had internet, and the blue octopus is NEVER coming back–unless it replaces the rocking chair I ordered, and well, I’m picking up my grandbaby today again. I have her all day tomorrow. And the corgis are landing in on my Fri through Sunday. Hopefully all that havoc won’t make me get behind.

I’m off to write my normal 2,000 word count because you never know when it’s going to be one of THOSE days.

Have a super great day that ISN’T one of THOSE days!

Do Your Work First!

Or else! My daughter asked me to watch baby while she has a patio quote extension done. I planned to run errands first thing, so before everything opened, I was playing with a wolf picture I took. Was that doing my work first? No…..

I did get caught up on word count yesterday, but now….

Pictures I took in Minnesota. Got to run! Have a great one!!!

All’s Fair in Love and Wolf Released!!!

Zoerro gray timber wolf at the New Mexico wolf reserve drinking water from a bowl on our cabin porch.

Ladies, and Gents, and Wolves, it’s out!!! All’s Fair in Love and Wolf can be in your hot little hands/paws now!

I have just a couple of minutes before baby arrives and I was thinking, why do my release dates always fall on the day when the baby is here???? You know, it’s one of those thoughts when I’m trying to fall asleep and can’t. And then I remembered–because she’s always here on Tuesdays and that’s release day. *sigh*

I could have done this all last night, but then again, I was working on the other story, and I got the last story back to make minor revisions to! Which always messes up my mojo for the current story. I have to dive back into the last one, while promoting this one that I wrote a year ago, and still type up notes on the new one. Confused yet? And you wonder why I change my hero or heroine’s name midstream to one in another book. Well, maybe you don’t wonder, but my beta reader does. lol

Time for Wolves

Playing around with a composite–bokeh (created with taking a picture where only the colors of the flowers in the sun were visible) and melting pocket watches are my photos, and the other clocks are free on Pixabay, the wolf from Depositphotos.

I was disappointed last night to learn that I had thought I was 8,000 words ahead of the game, but I’ve dropped down to 5,000. I had been at 7,000 for sure. I guess I lost track when I was sick. Sooo, I need to get that 7,000 lead again. 🙂 <3 I like to get ahead of my goal in case things happen that put me behind and then I’m still ahead….confused yet?

Have you noticed that a lot of movies lately, more so than usual, are constant flashbacks? Constant. We’re in the present, then living a scene in the past, fast forward, fast backward, fast forward. In writing, it makes it confusing, so if something is really, really important to the story, I try to show it in the beginning of the story. It’s okay to mention it, but actually taking the characters, and you, back constantly, can be jarring.

Most of the time I can follow a movie story line when they do that. My dad absolutely couldn’t watch movies like that. He’d be totally lost. But I was watching something that really confused me the other day. I thought it was in the past, but it was in the present again. That’s the problem with time traveling in the middle of a story–constantly. 🙂

But now??? It’s the present and time for the wolves!

Have a wonderful day! I know what I have to do!!!
