Happy Friday!

It’s Friday again! Being out from under that deadline has been awesome. I promised Wizard I’d take a real break from writing, and I am–sort of.  Okay maybe I’m plotting–a lot. The new series needs serious attention before I even get started. And after been fairly quiet for a while, Linc and all the Wing Slayers (Ram, Eli, Ginny and more!) are suddenly demanding I finish their stories. So much so that Linc woke me up at 3:30 am to discuss it, LOL! Weird how our brains work :-) But I’m not stressed, it’ll work out one way or another. Right now, I’m so grateful to have a chance to catch my breath and think about these things.

Tomorrow I’m meeting a friend at the mall for lunch and shopping.  Wizard will be home for the long weekend, so that should be fun. He can help with me plot the new series too since he’s the one that pointed out the flaw I had in my original plot (good plot, wrong timing as one thread was too close to Kat’s character.)

What are you guys doing for the weekend?

And now, since I’ve been thinking about Linc and the Wing Slayer Hunters, let’s do a cage fight for old time’s sake!

Contestant #1 This could be Linc (rich, charming gambler, has  a proclivity for knives and doesn’t trust emotion–everything is a deal to him.)



Contestant #2 This could be Eli (watch out, he’s vicious with his whip, a bit quiet but extremely alpha, will do anything to save his sister Ginny and to find his soul mirror.)

Sexy muscular model.

Who do you think would win?

Have a great weekend!

    Linc! Sorry I had to answer that first ;).

    I’m glad you’re relaxing kind of. It is funny how the mind works. I must say that I’m not upset at all that Linc is demanding your time. We love the Wing Slayers so we’ll happily wait and see what evolves.

    Wizard is a great writing partner. It must be nice to know that he gives you honest and useful critiques.

    I hope you have a great time at the mall with your friend. Let us know if you get any great buys.

    I hope to meet up with my girlfriend tomorrow for coffee. She had a migraine last night so we’ll see if she’s better in a couple hours. As for the rest of the weekend – SOS. I’m really making headway in the downsizing of stuff :). It feels good too.

    Have a great Labor Day weekend :)!

    Eli. It’s the strong, silent types with something to fight for that you have to watch.

    Okay, I’ve found that the only way to take a total break from writing is to go away. Wizard needs to take you somewhere if he really wants you to stop writing right now. (Nothing can stop the thinking about writing…) Have fun at the mall and enjoy your Wizardly weekend. =o)

    No plans here. I guess you probably saw on FB that I played gracey and slipped off the porch, so I’m still recovering from that. Luckily nothing I need for writing got bruised – except the butt upon which I sit – so I’ll be working. And since I live in a tourist area, I’ll be home avoiding tourists.

    Eli no maybe Linc ok Eli oh what the hey I don’t care who would win I would just want to watch. :wink: But I would be watching Eli more than Linc. Eli has a country boy feel that I will take over a city slicker- and they don’t get much slicker than Linc.

    I am looking forward to sleeping in on Monday. 7am would be sleeping in for me. I will get up and enjoy the morning quiet at home. Then when the rest of the family crawls out around noon. I will go take a nap. Hey it is a plan.

    Everyone have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

    Love Eli, but Linc! He has a thing for my cookies. ;)

    Can’t wait to hear more about the new series and YAYAYAY for the Wingslayers getting all up in your face again. ‘Bout time. Just sayin’… *smirk*

    Lawyer Guy took the day off to help with babysitting so I could write. With the three-day weekend, I’ll be working so maybe I’ll have BLUE MOON finished before Magic Bean Sprout returns next week. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    Viki I hope your girlfriend feels better. Migraines suck. Wizard gets them.

    Wizard is good at plotting and we have fun with it.

    I have always wanted to finish the Wing Slayers–but things got complicated. it’s not a secret, just hard to explain with various publisher interest, long waits and repeated disappointments (not publishers fault–they are a business not therapists :-) ) I had to move on in my career.

    Downsizing is good! I think about it rather than doing it :-(

    B.E., I missed that you “almost fell” off the porch so I went back and read it. Sounds painful! I’m so sorry. I guess it could have been worse if he did the header, but you’re pretty banged up. Feel better soon!

    We wanted to go away but life got in the way so we’re holding off now. We aren’t big on traveling anyway, which is why we put in the pool years ago.

    I really need to find the Plots-R-Us store…to pick up one or two plot threads.

    Have a great weekend!

    Kat, it’s a great plan! I’m naturally an early riser so I know what you mean. Although Id love to be able to sleep in once in awhile. I haven’t slept until 7 am in probably three years, and that was when I was sick.

    You’re right about Linc, he’s very slick :-) But he wasn’t always that way…

    Hope you have a restful weekend!

    Silver, Eli has a thing for women who feed him :-) Especially cookies!

    I know on the WS’s. It wasn’t intentional.

    You’re writing fast! but you have to right now between multiple projects and baby sitting duties. Hope you make your goal and finish BLUE MOON this weekend!

    Boy you sure ask the hard questions! I can’t choose, I really can’t but I do want to watch :wink: . You deserve a break, and if anything comes of it well… :) . Have fun with your friend, and don’t let Wizard get any ideas concerning ice on his long weekend I showed the video to my sister the other day because I hadn’t seen her in a while and told her she needed to check it out, and my mistake I showed it to her while my dad was in the room, and what did I get for it, an ice cube down the back of my shirt.

    It must be really nice to have Wizard around to help think up new ideas, especially since he’s not as close to them as you he can see more that wouldn’t occur otherwise. You’re lucky to have him, and he you.

    Amanda, so sorry I missed your comment! I’ve been lax at checking over the weekend. So funny you mention that video–Wizard was just teasing me about adding ice to the pool and filming that. As if I’d let him film me in my swim suit (he tried to get me to wear it for that ice bucket challenge–he’s such a guy).

    Your dad is pretty funny :-)

    It’s beyond nice to have a husband who supports my dream of writing. It’s not always easy, of course, but he’s a rock.

    Hope you had a great weekend!
