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.

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.

Updates…

Good day everyone.

Today I thought I’d give everyone the heads up as to what my adventures will be in the days and weeks to come.

Well, for the next 2 weeks, I’ll be concentrating on getting as much writing done as possible while the kids are still in school.  Yes, there’s only 2 weeks left and they will be finished school for the summer break and therefore will interrupt my writing.

Mind you, I won’t be abandoning writing altogether for the two and half months they have during the summer break.  I’ll be taking every moment I have to add more words to the screen as I can to get this accomplished.

What’s the date for my books to be finally published?  Answer to that is,, Not a friggen clue. LOL

I try to give myself due dates and they all fail.  Miserably.  So the only thing I can tell everyone is,, have patience and send me all the luck you can to help get this done.

No, that’s not a typo.  I did say books.  I’m courageously  writing 2 of them at the same time.  Not sure if that’s clever or insane.  Either way, I’m about on par with both of them, so instead of only having the one book done and published,, I will most likely have both books ready for my readers.

The one thing I’m definitely looking into though as I’m writing these is an agent to help me promote and keep me on track with the writing-to-publishing deadlines.  Frankly I suck at promotion.  Especially for myself.  I’m awesome with getting the word out there to help others with their projects, movies, tv shows, whatever they have on the go.  But I’m really bad at my own accomplishments.  Maybe I should take a page out of J.K. Rowling’s book on not giving up.  I might actually get somewhere with it.

As for the 2 months of summer vacation, that’s a whole other list of things right there.  I’ll be camping with my family, visiting friends who we missed last time and writing.  I’ll either be taking the laptop with me, or doing it the old fashioned way – pencil & paper.

So I’ll be trying to focus more onto the writing bit.  I do have access to my various social media sites for communication with friends (or anyone who leaves me a message for that matter).  I have an author Facebook page and Twitter.  I also have a comments section here on this site for those of you who wish to send me messages (or you can comment to any post I’ve made).  I also have Instagram if you wish to follow me on there as well.

So starting tomorrow I’ll be MIA for a while until I get these projects done.  But like I said, those options I have highlighted above are the only ways to reach me.  I’ll still be writing my occasional post here and there, so I’m not that far away from you all, 🙂

Anyway,, I’m signing off.  Have a great day.

Until next time,

K ❤
