The countdown is on…

HAPPY 6TH OF JUNE!!!

No, this is not a special day for me.  Not that I know of anyway.  I just wanted to shout that out there, LOL

So, there’s only 14 more school days left and the kids will be free from their institutions LOL.  Then they will have summer holidays that runs for about two and a half months.  Well here it’s that long. Depending on where you are in the world, your Summer vacation might be longer or shorter.

But just think on that for a moment though.

Kids have 2.5 months of vacation.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have that too?

Seriously,, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have summers off without loosing any pay?

Then again, maybe not.

Though, summers are not all fun and games.  Especially for my two kids.  And especially not for this year.

My oldest is autistic, so he needs a routine.  I just wish part of his routine would to realize that you can sleep in during summer holidays.  Then again, it would be awesome if he would do that on weekends, LOL.  But at least it keeps me from sleeping too much day away.

My youngest on the other hand, love sleeping in.  Can’t say as I blame her,,, I love my bed too.  But there’s things that just needs to get done.  Eventually she will come to realize that.

However on that note, I do have a math workbook to help her prepare for the next grade.  And she’s got the first 4 Harry Potter books to read.  I’m still working on book 5, *rolls eyes*.  Why did this book have to be the one with 800 PAGES?!  Seriously Ms. Rowling,,, what the devil were you thinking?  🙂

Speaking of writing.  I have 2 of my own to get finished up.  Maybe this will be the summer that I’ll actually get them done.  This is why I need an agent, preferably for free, LOL.  Although, I do have amazing friends who keeps me on my toes and keeps pushing me to get them done.  Especially the sequel.

Seriously, to those of you who has the first book,,, I’m reeeeeeeeeally sorry it’s not done yet.  I’m now thinking I should have just waiting on publishing it in the first place until I can have a proper ending for it.  I’m trying to keep it the same amount of pages as the first, but it’s becoming to be a chore.  I can only drag out so many scenes before it starts to become boring.

Plus making sure the first lot of chapters reads right is a challenge as well.  So not only do I need an agent,,, apparently I need an editor as well.  There’s only so many times I can re-read it to make sure I have all the grammar errors corrected.  Though, I have to thank Word for underlining words I’ve either spelled wrong, or a sentences that doesn’t make sense.  And someone who’s dyslexic trying to figure out another way to write a sentence to make it read right is a challenge in itself.

Hence another reason for such a delay in getting anything published.  Distractions.  And I have a lot of them, LOL.

And specking of distractions,, this is one of them.  So I shall head off and get some things accomplished today.  Wish me luck, 🙂

Until next time,,,

A little input…

I’ve often sat in front of the laptop and wondered what I should write about.  Then I wonder if what I write will get the interest of the reader. Then it’s the “how often should I post in my blog?” only to realize that for the most part, it’s up to that individual blogger.

It could take hours for me to actually have all my thoughts written down, only to start deleting them again.  Thinking that ‘maybe that’s a bit more information I care to share’ or ‘don’t think they would find this interesting’ or even ‘would they really care if I posted this?’.

I could have posts in draft for days and days on end and not get published, only for me to delete because they are irrelevant now.  Leaving this blog to go days without something written.

I love writing.  Though always hated reading, LOL.  Mainly because I’m dyslexic and reading (especially in my younger days) was the hardest chore I had to do.  And don’t get me started on what it was like in school. But now, I can pick up a book with no problems.

However, I’m not even sure if this is all that interesting for you – the reader, as you read this.  So here’s the thing.  Give suggestions on topics that you’d like to get my views on.

Though, Politics and Religion are out.  For one, I don’t know that much about Politics and for two, Religion can get touchy so I’d rather not  blog about my thoughts on the matter, for everyone’s sake, 🙂

So let’s get started shall we?

You can either leave a comment as to the topic you’d like my thoughts on in here, or you can find me on Twitter and nab me over there.  Just say that you have a topic for my next blog and we’ll go from there.

Sorry if this was a boring post, but I’m really at a loss of what to write about that people would find interesting enough to stay.

Until next time.

Some updates with humor

Welcome back.  If I haven’t lost anyone that is. 🙂

Well, seeing as October is almost over, I might as well update everyone on what I’ve been up to since my last short post.  Besides shopping for costumes, decorations and Halloween treats,,, I’ve been actually doing some writing to the sequel of my first book.

I honestly can’t wait to have that damn thing written.  Not only for my friends sake who’s bought it, but for my hubby who’s constantly getting harassed by co-workers on when is the next one coming out??  Don’t worry, it’s not in a bad way,, I guess they liked the first one that much that they can’t wait to read what happens next instead of just thinking on how I’m going to end it.

Oh,, and if your on twitter and haven’t noticed yet,, I’ve changed my handle name on there.  It’s now @OfficialKDFord. 🙂  I’m the one and only,,, plus after this sequel is done,, that’s how I’ll be known as for all my future books – K.D. Ford.

And I do want to apologize for not having the 2nd book done by now.  I guess that hater done it’s toll on me with it’s negative comments.  But I guess it’s still a learning curve that I have to over come.  I’m not going to get everyone liking my stuff.  Nor should they, everyone’s likes things differently.  And I accept that.

However, in saying that, I’m only human.  Some things that gets said will stick with me no matter what.  But I’m learning to make that the driving force for me to carry on.  To show the haters they won’t knock me down, and that the only thing they are doing is making an ass of themselves.

OK, check list,,,

Mention book — check

Update twitter — check

Stick middle finger up to the haters — DOUBLE CHECK!!!

LOL  That felt good 😀

Thinking as I’m typing as to what else that needs to be said to update you all.

OH !!!  A friend of mine and I are going to have our own little webseries going.  I know I’ve been talking about it off and on on Twitter (not so much on Facebook yet), but trying to arrange the times for her and I to actually start this adventure is a little tricky.  Considering I’m in Newfoundland, and she’s living in the Shire.  No, not the one in New Zealand 🙂  Her shire is in the UK.  So to figure out timing is critical in pulling this off.  But make no mistake, once we get this started,, there won’t be no stopping us.

Mind you, in the meantime,, I do have plans on doing some video blogs on my own youtube channel.  But again,, it’s the timing.  When I’m not doing housework, or running errands, or just having a lazy day, I will do one.  I can’t remember the last time I done a vlog.  But I’ll do one…

In the meantime, I do have to run off.  Housework won’t get done by itself.  Where is that damn house fairy??

Anyway,, you all have an awesome day.

Much love

K. ❤
