I finished the tax journal for authorpreneurs today! I had promised people that it would be ready for Can-Con, and it will be. Barring printer problems, idiots at customs and so forth, of course. I don’t have a table at Can-Con, so I’ll have a few in my bag and a box in my room, …

Sometimes it happens a lot. Explodes kinda. I recently found out I’m becoming a godmother! I’ll try to be the nice one, not the one who curses the whole castle.  No promises.  🙂 We’ve been to 2 out of 3 baby showers, being the first grandchild in both the mom and pop-to-be’s families, everybody wanted …

Right now I’m reading Val McDermid’s article on her writing routine. She gets up at 9am, starts working by 11. This is me! I get up around 830am, drag my bones out to get dressed, have a coffee, and am at the computer by 10. I then do email and blogs for a while, just …

Tomorrow morning bright and early, we leave on a ten hour drive to my Mom’s to help with her wedding.  It’s both stressful (Mom reports turning into a 16 yo bridezilla) and incredibly cute. So, I spent all day yesterday packing for a 2 week trip, and was supposed to spend today getting the house …

I entered a short story contest put on by Radish a few weeks ago. Radish is an online story sharing app, kind of a pro-level Wattpad. Except that it just goes to Mac Apple products for now. (They are working on an Android app) I entered a short story based in my world for Nets …

Well, so far today. Major pain from being in town yesterday. I had a Dr appt, where she doubled my morphine dose (that’s always a good sign, right?), told me the xrays of my back revealed “significant erosion” from L5 to L3, and there wasn’t enough healthy bone left to try to operate to fix …

8000 steps yesterday, and every one hurt. I’m supposed to do 1500-2000 steps a day. I did 4-5 X that much. Owie! But I’m back, almost in one piece, and eager to get editing my fantasy epic.  April is Camp Nano, and I’ve chosen to edit my book so that it makes sense, tighten it …

Today I am starting to organize myself for the Beltaine Craft fair on April 23rd.  Yes, that’s a long ways away, and yes, I do need to start this early. Part of it is my chronic pain making the necessary bending and lifting almost impossible, and part of it is my #mybrainisajerk syndrome.  It works …

Easter dinner at the in-laws, nowhere near as bad as it sounds. Rare roast lamb, Caesar salad to die for, asparagus… and plenty of wine. It may not be thanksgiving, but I have much to be thankful for. Including the opportunity… nay, the duty…. to tease my niece about dating the son of one of …
