Happy February!!

I know we’ve been into this month for the past 7 days, but hello February.

And looking back, the last time I posted in here was in November. That’s a bit of a break.  And it wasn’t intentional.  I really need to find things that’s interesting to write about.  I wonder if I should post a bit of pieces of what I write about?  Whether it’s short stories, poems, or something.

In the past I’ve asked my readers what they would like to see me write about.  Hence the reason for the long breaks in posts.  I suppose, if I had a general idea of what people find interesting, it would be easier on having something to write about.

I will not be posting about politics.  For one main reason, I hate it.  I find it brings out the worse in people.  So that’s off the table.

Actually, since November, we welcomed our new niece into the world.  Because she was a preemie, she had to stay in hospital for awhile.  But she’s home and doing awesomely.  I love being an aunt. And having just the two nieces, and a fur nephew Joey (my sisters cat), there’s no better feeling (other than being a mom of course, lol).

Now with school half way done for the year, I better start making plans for what to do on their off time.  We usually take the kids on a trip of sorts, camping usually.  This year might be a little different, can’t say what yet as we (hubby and I) haven’t really discussed things.

Then it’s another trip to Cuba.  Love that place, especially the people.  So I’m still crossing my fingers that happens this year.  Still waiting on the prices to drop more than what it is. 🙂

Of course I can’t forget Scifi on the Rock.  I’m NOT missing that convention.  Besides the guests (who are awesome this year), it’s a great mother-daughter weekend.  And it’s going to be wicked because we are dressing up.  Can’t say of what, going to leave that one for later.  But it will be a fun weekend.

I will have to leave this post as is for now.  I have some things to get done.  But I want to wish you all a great day.

Until next time.

Today & Beyond

Welcome back and happy Thursday.  Only one more day till the weekend.  WOOOHOOO!!!!!

And 11 more days until NaNoWriMo.  If you’re not sure what that is, then click here.  I signed up for my first time last year, and I intend to do it again.  I started a book with them and I’m hoping to get more done with it with their help.  I have to reach the target of 50K words.  I’m almost hitting 7K.  So I have a ways to go.

And I’m doing a sequel.  Yes still.  I’ve had a little hiccup with that one because of one little chicken who would rather hide behind a fake name and give me a bad review.  I highly doubt they even read my first book, but felt the need to have their say.

But I’m happy to say that I’m finally back on board with it again, and I am making progress with it.  I am honestly trying my best to get it published in December.  Hopefully ready by Christmas.  *cross fingers* Massively hoping. 🙂  So to everyone who’s bought the first book, and have been patiently waiting for the next,, it really shouldn’t be too much longer to read the end of the story.  I’ll never end off a story with a TO BE CONTINUED ever again, LOL.  So waiting as long as you have,, I really, really appreciate you hanging in there.

So today, and for the rest of this month, I’ll be striving to finish off this one (or at the very least very close) because starting in November, I’ll be concentrating on the other one I started.  Then hopefully get both clued up for December.

So I probably won’t be on Facebook or Twitter much.  And if I do it’s to pop in to catch up on a few things, I will reply back to anyone who’s sent me messages or tweets.

Until then, I’ll leave ya with this little tune to help get you motivated.  It’s helped me with some of my writing.  And I wanna thank Jared Keeso for tweeting it.

Until next time.

Typical me

Well apparently nothing exciting happened during the whole month of July that warranted me to not write about it.

It’s funny actually.  I could be on the phone and talk to friends for hours on end, but to write a simple blog about my adventures eludes me. LOL.

So, besides the last day of school for my kids, as well as my oldest going to his graduation, we’ve launched our boat about 15 minutes away to get it ready for the food fishery.  Have to stock up on fish for the winter.

Then we made a list if things or places we wanted to see or visit on our camping trip.  Which didn’t happen due to crappy weather.  But we have awesome friends who took us in for the 4 days that we were supposed to be roughing it.  And with hubby back to work now, we might have to wait for a long weekend to go camping in the tent.

As much as the kids (and yes, me too) love our tech, camping was one thing that we loved doing to unplug from social media and connect with each other.  Then again, we can do that at any time really, if we put our minds to it.

I certainly need to unplug if I’m going to get any amount of writing done.  And this being the 2nd of August, I really need to summon more willpower to stay offline long enough to get both books done.

Yes, I said both.  And I know I’ve blogged about the fact that I’m writing 2 stories at the same time.  I’m either insane or smart.  The jury’s still out on that one. LOL

Either way, I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with what I’m doing.  If you are interested that is.  But in any case, off I go to get more chapters written.  I’m on chapter 5 of the sequel and chapter 5 of the other one.  I still have a ways to go with the other one, but I don’t think the sequel will have as many pages as the first.  But I’m hoping to stretch it out.  Gotta love Microsoft Word.  It helps me with any editing or typos that I miss the first time around.

Anyway, until next time.

Have a great day.
