October 5th. This Saturday. I’m gonna be selling my accessories and books! This will be the last function for the year. Next year I will try to do more book conventions.
The Amulet novella series is well on its way, but my final book for my Red Summer trilogy seems to have stalled out. Not happy about that. But I’m still writing, just the flow has slooooooooooowed down. 😅
Yes. I’m sorry. I’m not making progress as I have in the past. But I’m still writing and learning how to better my stories. Going to try some new things – like a serial (?). Maybe. Smaller bites seem to be the way things are going rather than a large meal. So the plan is to submit a story that’s to be broken into maybe four or five smallest portions. Cliffhangers (?), maybe. Maybe not. The Amulet first, then the final Red Summer Book. Not going to do too much until The Amulet is complete, then it’s time to investigate this new publishing platform.
Me sitting nervously after setting my table. Ahhhh!
Doing Onyxcon at Southwest Art Center in Atlanta! I’m so nervous! Haven’t done a ‘con’ since 2014! Got all my books and sharing a table with my creative brother; Al Stewart the creator of the web comic Counter Agents! And(!!!) I’m sitting next to The creator of Dayblack! Keef Cross!
soon! Soon I’ll be able to get back to my writing! I’ve been crafting almost every day for next weekend! New ideas and designs as well as a new medium. I really enjoy beading, but leather crafting will still be my favorite. After the festival everything left over will be posted to either my Facebook or Etsy page(s).
On top of my computer dying a violent and horrific death, six new tires and a new tune up later. I am sick. The Pollen here in Georgia is deadly. I haven’t had a voice for almost two weeks. But I’m writing! Just not on what I wanted. I had planned to finish Gray Spring first, but it’s hard to force the ideas to come out. The Amulet is flowing nicely and an actual ending to it is truly in sight, so I’ll continue it for the time being. The problem is that money? For the editing? I’m gonna have to come up with something quick and that’s depressing. I got the idea of posting it as a serial, maybe. One chapter each week … still haven’t decided, but that’s if the money doesn’t come through. I’m looking forward to seeing this finally coming to an end, but nervous about everything else. We’ll see ….
The month of March is going well. Beginning with my mom’s birthday and then my own. My hubby is so sweeeeeet! I love him VERY much. Anyway, the taxes are done, the emissions and tags are taken care of. I have a Festival on the 16th (Yellow Pollen Festival in Hampton, Ga.) and a Con on the 30th (Onyxcon at Wolfcreek). I’m still not used to them so the nerves are growing. But I’m looking forward to them. I’m also racing to complete at least two books this year. I simply haven’t decided which two.🤔. But I’ve saved money for the editing and their covers! I’m very excited.
Started doing earrings, they came out well!
Then something told me to mess around with some beads.
This came out much better than I imagined it.
I got the hang of tightening that wire, very impressed with myself!
