I had a different kind of request yesterday–to create a video for a fan for her birthday. The lady who asked me to do it is asking other authors also since the birthday girl loves to read. It was such a cute idea, I did it and then I had to create one for my daughter’s birthday, though she’ll get it on her birthday, not during the early celebration. Since we’re having Thanksgiving on Sunday–reminder to self to defrost the turkey starting on Friday morning–we’ll do her birthday then too.
So while I was creating that video, I was thinking about how I needed to change out my Facebook heading also. I came up with this. I think it’s pretty cool, don’t you? I need to make one for my other page too.
And, miracle of miracles, I actually got my 2,000 words for the day before yesterday, and my 2,000 for yesterday done on Bear in Mind. I didn’t think I’d get more than 500 words done total, with all the other stuff I was creating. It’s at 39K now with 31K to go! Woohoo! I love the downhill slide where I’m wrapping things up.
It really has all to do with coming up with new scene ideas though. Without them, I would still be stuck.
Okay, I’ve got to get busy. Hope your day is swell. 🙂
These are two brothers that are at the International Wolf Center, Ely, MN. They’re just beautiful. One was showing dominance as the alpha. They were 2 years old here.
I’m at 18,000 words on Big Cat Magic. I’m having a lot of fun writing it. I managed 5,000 words yesterday! Shooting for 2,000 words today. More if they come to me.
Leigh Cover Designs made the cover and she did a couple of beautiful book mock ups for me too. Thanks, Leigh! This is Kolby Jones’s story. Yes, he’s a cougar. But so is she. More about it later! It’s a Halloween Novella, though the way I’m writing on it, it might be closer to a novel by the time I’m finished. If you read my books, longer is better, right? I just have so many things to share in the story, a mystery to solve, a romance to build! 🙂 I’m just having too much fun.
We didn’t have rain and ended up with 114 heat index yesterday. I don’t think we’re going to get rain ever and it’s going to continue to be super heated for weeks. ugh.
Okay, I’m off and running on the story, I hope! Have a super fun day, and if you’re as hot as us, stay cool and hydrated!
I love fairies and wolves. Well, and a lot of other things.
I just finished edits on Wolf Takes the Lead and turned it in. I started working on editing Relative Danger, previously released. I have a new cover for it, so I want to update it.
Still taking care of my granddaughter, so once she goes home, I can concentrate on it and maybe get it done by the weekend and then republish it with the new title. Then? It’s time to get back to Lachlan’s story. Sometimes it helps me to write on a current story after I’ve read a couple of others I had to work on. I’ll reread it from beginning to end and then hopefully be able to figure out how to finish it.
Another hot day. No rain. *sigh* Maybe Thursday we’ll get some, but I’m not holding my breath.
Love fairies though most of the ones in my books do not have wings. I do have a group of winged fae and ones that shift into wolves too.
We have a wild day scheduled today, grocery shopping, shipping books, looking for birthday shorts sets and then back home again to do arts and crafts, workbooks and reading. But first, we’re having cinnamon rolls, walking to the mailbox and around the block.
Goblin, Archer and Wolf created with Daz3D and the background is from Daily Textures, other elements from NLD Designs (Oscraps), Spooky Ghost Font for Happy Halloween.
Trick-or-Treating tonight. I think it’s going to be chilly. We carved pumpkins, I painted mine, I’ll have to show them off tomorrow. I haven’t downloaded the pictures yet. Slow start to my day trying to create this picture!
Another Monday. Little one will be here momentarily and we finished her brother’s scarecrow, so we’re working on hers today. I also managed to make my 2,000 words yesterday on Angel Fae and made the angel wolf from fractals, both for the background and the wings. So much fun!
I weeded a ton yesterday and am getting just about caught up! I love this time of year because the flowers are blooming again, we have some cooler weather to work in, and we with the slight cool down in the mornings at night, it’s helping to slow down grass and weed growth. Yay!
A culinary artist I am not, but I thought my little dragon didn’t turn out too badly.
So we might make more squiggly graham cracker creations for dessert. Not sure. But we’re going to have a great day!
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!
Decided to have some fun with Halloween picture creations before Halloween is over since I write paranormal and I don’t want the chance to slip away! It doesn’t mean I won’t make them afterwards either. Halloween is any time of year!
I sent my wolves out this morning at five to chase off the rats, but the rats haven’t returned. I guess that will work for a little while, anyway! But I’m sure they’ll be back–like Arnold would say.
I usually listen to another youtube music video if I need some music. I’m writing about the fae, Angel Fae, this time, and I saw this picture when I was trying to help a fellow Photoshop user with how to create clipping masks and sent her some tutorial links. But this caught my eye and I and wanted to see what the music sounded like. Perfect so far! Dramatic, otherworldly. So I’m editing before I begin typing notes I wrote last night. It’s so much more fun when I can listen to music that makes me feel as though I’m in their world….
Okay, I’m off to work. Halfway done on Angel Fae.
It’s been hot in the mornings even, but once it’s light out, I’ll try and get some more weeding done. Have a super fun day and let the music carry you away!
Today, I’m finishing up proofing Darkland Elf and making the new cover for it.
I’m late posting a blog–think my granddaughter is going through a growth spurt. I have to keep making her more to eat. lol My dogs think that means they get to eat too. Both are waiting for her underneath the table to catch scraps.
