This weekend blew by in a blur. After a hot week; cold, wind and rain arrived to confuse us here in Southern California. On Saturday, we went out to see Middle Son, and we must have passed four different accidents–one looked really bad–on the way. Rain and So Cal traffic is not a good mix. But we had a great time at Middle Son’s, and I got to see my two grandpuppies, Jett and Hazel. I played with them while Maggie convinced Middle Son and his wife that she need all their attention.
Sunday Turbo and his parents came over for another marathon day of fun. Maggie is worn out from two days of visiting and playing. It’s really cute when Turbo plays food truck, and he brings Maggie snacks like pretend tacos and ice cream. Maggie actually plays along eating it. You’d have to see it to believe it. Turbo loves playing food truck with her.
Family time was great, but work time was scarce. There’s so many things I’m trying to do, I’m pretty sure I’m throwing way too many balls in the air then running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to catch them But I’m energized and trying! I wrote some tag lines, designed some promo graphics, got half way through setting up ARC’s (copies for reviewers) on Bookfunnel, had my son and daughter-in-law teach me a little about Zoom, and tell me what I’m going to need for better quality video and audio…a whole list of stuff.
Then my supercharged, marketing savvy Middle Son suggested I start a podcast, and CPA boy thought it was a great idea too. At least they believe I can figure it out and do it as opposed to thinking I can’t???? LOLOL! I’ve put that idea in the research and ponder file to wait its turn.
In addition to the flurry of energy going into SAVAGED DEVOTION’S publication, I reached out to my friend and sometimes critique partner, Marianne, to help me work out some backstory and plot issues in PRIMAL MAGIC. She’s awesome at this, and I’m excited to have our phone session on Wednesday. For a long time I didn’t reach out and ask for help because I felt I had to prove to myself that I could write a finish a book again first. Now it’s time to get off my self imposed island. We all need to remember to ask for help when we need it.
So that was my weekend, how was yours?
