This year is a royal mess …

This year is a royal mess …

I’m a total wreak. I’m an emotional roller coaster. But I’m getting better. (At hiding it or moving on, I haven’t decided yet.) My hands are better. The skin is thin and easily irritated, so no wire working for a while longer. But I have no excuse for not writing. I admit, I was very depressed about not being able to work and worried about our bills, but we’ve been blessed. A stocked pantry, a filled fridge, enough to cover our bills until the new school year begins. Despite the paranoia, the craziness and the sadness we are making it.

It’s April.

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 ….

Writing….

Writing….

My mind has been expanding on my new world in ‘The Amulet ‘. There will be three books, each stand-alone stories and yet connected. I have already outlined each story and I am biting at the bit to get them started. Now if only I could take a break from my responsibilities to complete just one of them!

Gaaaaah…….!

Gaaaaah…….!

I’m so indecisive!

Well, not really, but it freaking feels that way! I’m trying my hardest to work on one story, but scenes and character ideas keep me bouncing from one to another. I so want to solely work on the final book to my urban fantasy series, but the W.I.P. to my Regions’ series keeps calling! Sketch ideas, cover concepts, and changes to the story keeps interfering!  I’m so glad that I don’t have a schedule or deadline to stick to, but I sooooo wanted to get at least one freaking book out this year. Argh! (I know! Excuses, excuses!)

Memories….

I was doing some random cleaning and came across an old beat up box of my stuff. More proof of my issue of hoarding. Old books, jewelry, banana hair clips, and then my old portfolio! A monster of cracking pleather and dust. Proof that I never give up on story ideas. These drawings are dated from 1994 through 1997 🤭
