Wednesday Worthy

Yesterday Wizard called me randomly and said, “Are you sitting at your desk typing and making me money?”

“I was eating lunch.” Or possible a cookie but Wizard is strictly on a need to know basis.

“Slacker, get back to work and make me money.”

Getting annoyed, I said, “But the computer is acting up. It’s slow and I don’t want a new one. But this one is pissing me off.”

“Witch, I’m hearing whining but no typing.”

Why do I answer the phone when he calls?  I mean I can see right there on the call ID it’s him. Yet I answer the phone every single time. Sigh. I need another cookie.

Seriously my computer is being a pain. I’m trying to get through my deadlines before I buy a new one and have to move everything and learned the new operating system.

Yeah yeah I hear you all telling me to quit whining just like Wizard.

Moving on, here is our Wednesday Worthy candidate:


So what do you think?

Weekend Roundup

I had a surprisingly good weekend.  Wizard and I played on Saturday, doing some shopping, looking at model homes (just for fun) and going to the movies. We laughed so hard at the movie–We Are The Millers–because we clearly have the emotional maturity of a twelve-year-old :-)

Sunday I worked straight through, trying to get a sex scene right.  Still not sure it’s right but I have to move on today.

So how was your weekend?

Happy Friday

Where did the week go? I can’t believe it’s Friday!

I’m deep in the book and  working through an emotional scene that’s taking for-freaking-ever to figure out.  In the meantime, I stumbled onto a debate about Self Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing. I see this LONG stream of comments of writers defending their positions more and more passionately. This always makes me shake my head in bewilderment for two reasons:

1) Why aren’t the commentators off writing their books?

2) Why do we need others to validate our career choices so very much?

But whatever, I don’t have time to worry about it too much. I have books due and these suckers refuse to write themselves :-)

So, what’s up with you all? Any exciting weekend plans?

Wednesday Worthy

I’m working around ants — this year has been the worst! We’re trying everything and I’m sick of pulling everything out of cupboards and pantries to attack and clean! Then there was a wild-fire in the hills behind us.  The fire is much better, we’re not worried now as long as it doesn’t flare up suddenly.  The ants, however, are resilient  and determined little suckers.

It’s like a conspiracy against this poor book with all these distractions.

Okay our Wednesday Worthy candidate doesn’t exactly rock my world:

Weekend Roundup!

So sorry for not posting Friday.  I tried to post Friday morning but my website wasn’t working.  It was very frustrating! Then the day got too busy since BLB, Middle Son and Bailey dog came out for my birthday. That was a blast. CPA son couldn’t come but he called and did all the usual good son stuff :-)

BLB got me a very cool coffee grinder for my birthday, which I love.  But the best present of all from him was that he helped me work out something I need at the end of OBSESSION.   Now my pages are really flowing because I know what I’m aiming for.  The only real problem now is finding time to write.

Saturday was Special K’s bridal shower. It was lovely and fun.

Sunday I finally had time to write!

Insomnia is my unwanted house guest right now, but I’m ignoring him hoping he gets bored and leaves.

How was your weekend?
