Sadly it’s snowing again but there’s plenty for me to feel loved and warm inside. I checked on my books on Amazon and I got two more 5 star reviews; one on Old Soldier and one on Djinn. I’m always nervous about checking for reviews on my books; waiting for that dreaded 1 star review but so far, the lowest rating I’ve ever gotten was 4 stars.
I love when I get feedback from my readers. Even though I can see sales, it’s nice to know the person took the time to tell others what they thought of my work. I am so grateful for it so a big thanks to you all! 😀
I will be honest, I didn’t do much writing during last week. Not only is it hard to write with my kiddo underfoot, I didn’t really want to. We had drawing time together but this was a rare chance to have uninhibited time with her and I took it. But the weekend! Ahh, the weekend.
I’d expected to babysit my nieces but it fell through and kiddo was at her dad’s. I had a free Saturday night… FREE!!!
Me being me, I was a selfish bitch and used my Saturday night to do nothing but write, write, take a nice bath, dye my hair, then write some more. And, holy gods, was it ever worth it! I was so jazzed, I continued into Sunday afternoon. I did another chapter of Lost Brother and did some amazing work with Old Soldier. What I really should have done was some typing but once I had that pen in my hand, I was FLYIN! And it was pure inspiration, not the determined scribbles of someone who refuses to let her page goal go unfulfilled. Those of you out there who create will get the difference. 😉
I love that feeling and I hope to keep it up. 🙂 Eventually, I will have to nut up and do some typing. I don’t want to end up with the daunting task of typing hundreds of pages rather than just 20 or so (and Old Soldier has been a rare, direct-to-computer project). But as long as my muse has this love affair with pen and paper, I’m going to write. And it feels GREAT!
I’ve basically decided that if school is closed, I’m home. I mean, if the roads are too dangerous for the kids to go to school, they’re certainly too dangerous for me to drive her to the sitter and drive myself to work. So, fooey on them; as my Ma would say.
Since last month I managed to complete my goal of finishing one short story (Winter Boot) for that month and I also kept writing Lost Brother; I’ve moved on to the next short story I’ve had in progress called Old Soldier. My goal for the month is to wrap that bad boy up and cross it off my WIP list! 😀
I’ve been doing so well I am SO psyched to have enough stories to put a collection together and sell it. 🙂
