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 ❤

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,,,

K ❤
