I was supposed to be starting POSSESSION the next book in The Plus One Chronicles yesterday. I wrote the words Chapter One. Does that count as writing?
Promo stuff kept getting in my way. Oh and I sent off THE PROPOSITION to the proofreader. But today I’m going to the gym, then I’m determined to write something. At least more than Chapter One!
Now I culled some pics Wizard took of me when he was “helping” me bake. And by helping, I mean he tasted the cookies and candy. Oh and he got my Mixmaster down from a high shelf. In this first one, I was covered in flour and chocolate, although it’s kind of hard to see in the pic:
And yeah, that’s my kitchen. And that’s me. Pretty much what I look like daily, except cleaner.
Then Wizard took this photo at a party and SWEARS it’s a good pic. I think I look a little too animated–actually I told Wizard I look demented. I was laughing at something my niece said.
And that’s enough pics of me for a very long time. Although Wizard will be taking some professional shots of me at some point. I’m having my website redone and need new author pics. Except I’m procrastinating doing and putting Wizard off.
This weekend, I’m not sure what I’m doing, probably cleaning and writing and maybe I’ll do something fun. What about you?

Thanks for sharing the photos. I agree with Wizard. You look great in the pink top.
With all the baking you do I was surprised to see the word Mixmaster. My Gram baked every day and that’s the only “electric” mixer she would use. When I got my first one I was so happy :).
After you hit the gym I’m betting the creative juices will be flowing and you’ll put a nice opening dent into the new book. It must be so exciting.
I don’t have any plans this weekend other than getting the tree put away. Everything else has been done. Can’t wait to put the furniture back where it belongs.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I think the pics look great, Jen. We’re always harder on our own pics than we need to be. LOL, yeah, writing Chapter One is still writing. Two words down.
I’ll be sorting and cleaning and shredding. I made up my mind to go through all those old boxes and get rid of stuff we don’t need. I mean, phone bills from ’07? Tax stuff from ’01? Sheesh, I’m such a packrat.

Viki, LOL on the Mixmaster! Wizard bought it for me, well it’s my second one–I wore the first one out. I also have a hand mixer of course.
I bake in spurts–usually when I’m plotting or bored.
Isn’t it nice to get the house back to “normal?” Now if only someone would clean it for me
Have a great weekend!

B.E., I shredded two manuscripts yesterday, but I don’t have phone bills that old. But I have boxes of old-and will never be seen–manuscripts that I need to shred. Why do we keep this stuff?
I think most of us aren’t happy about pics of ourselves. Plus they are boring on a blog!
Remind me Monday to go over to Killer Chicks! That’s when you’ll post, right?

You are so pretty, Jen! And don’t argue with me.
We are moving…or in process anyway. All I can say is I’m sick of boxes. But I absolutely love the house we bought. I think this one is as close to my dream home as I could ever get. Today they are enclosing the formal dining for my office. woo-hoo! Which means I gotta get my butt over there.
Btw, I know it’s been a while but I do check in on you now and again. Keep writing!!

Well, I’m a day late, but I’ve been all kinds of busy. I’m trying to teach myself to roller skate without any help what-so-ever (I know, it’s pathetic that I’m just starting to learn at my age.) and today I have to watch my niece and nephew into my weekend (not an uncommon thing) so my sister can try to get all the mold out of their house. Their home burned down about a little over a year ago and they’re living in a trailer because my brother-in-law refuses to move. Ugh. Luckily, I got your card in just this morning so that makes everything so much better! Thanks, Jenn!

Ashlynn, a new house? That’s so exciting! Congrats! Very cool on turning your formal dining room into an office too We converted our dining room to my office, but it’s open. You’ll be glad yours is closed in!
Thank you on the compliment, but…well you said not to argue, but it’s hard!

B.E., I want to remember to go to the site!

Stephanie, your poor sister! Wow. Hope things improve for her!
Good luck learning to roller skate
