Writer Wednesday – Writing Check-in!

Happy Wednesday everybody! 😀 I thought I’d try and get in the habit of a weekly check in with you all to let you know how things are going writing wise since I’m sure you’re all chomping at the bit to see more work from me. 😉

First of all, Winter Boot is nearly complete. I have two, maybe three short chapters to go and I’ll get to posting them on Fiction Fridays again as soon as they’re typed and edited. I’m also working on a loose outline for a lesbian romance called “10 Summers” which will be my next FF offering.

I haven’t touched Greenhouse. You can throw rocks at me later.

I am currently working on a small collection of my erotica. When I say “small,” I mean 3-4 stories I plan to put on Amazon all together. I’m trying to match them up so they all kinda fit together but judging from what I’ve seen offered on Amazon in terms of cheap erotica, I could throw them together like mixed nuts and nobody would give a crap.

I’ve been lax with keeping you guys updated on my book reviews. I’ve posted three more (here, here, and here) and I have two more books on deck.

I have also been sketching, crocheting, and knitting. Expect pictures of my crafts to be popping up on here more often. 😉 I don’t sketch fast enough for my Deviant Art or Storm Artist galleries to be updated all the time but with more practice, I’ll get there.

Yes, I effing slipped on the ice again last week. Winter can officially fucking suck it. Please give me Spring before I kill myself. >_<

All in all, for a gal who’s only three months off demanding a divorce, I’m not doing too badly! I’m not writing more to distract from my feelings, I’ve been dealing with my feelings so well, I have more mental energy to write! If I can stop slipping on, hitting, or getting hit by anything for a few months YEARS, I’ll be in good shape here.

Really, Gravity; what did I ever do to you?

A Side effect of Borders Closing

I did foresee this happening to me but eh, cest la vie.

Since I can’t get to the bookstore to buy my favorite books, I have been getting them from Amazon. Since I also use Amazon to try and find the weird books I don’t find in book stores, my orders there have been getting stranger. I don’t mind it but it’s a serious departure from my buying habits.

I subscribe to Heavy Metal (some NWS images here, kids… In fact the whole site is Adult. Under 18? Don’t go.) and I LOVE some of the stories I see in them enough to buy the trades when I can find them. I own Requiem (and not just cause there are vampires in it) and now I’ve gone and purchased Sky Doll. Granted, I use credit card points and coupons out the yazoo to afford these things (feel free to buy my stories/books to support my addiction ~_^) but to have these books in my hands just makes me so damn happy.

And it is because Borders closed. Otherwise, I would have spent all my money IN the store and not have had enough money to spend on Amazon.

Yay for unintended consequences? :p

And there’s more. Because I’m looking at all these fucking AWESOME comics (and abusing the caps lock…) I feel the need to draw. How will I find time for this you say? By instituting a Drawing Night or two a week. And it’s in the Crackberry, so it’s law. I’d loooveee to update my ignored Deviant Art gallery

Oh, and if you pop by that link and snoop through my gallery; yes, the pictures I have of Ciro and Tia and of Tia are what the characters look like. Yes, those are mouse ears. No relation to Mickey.

I figure if I’m able to really practice on a schedule, my skills will get back to snuff. Not to mention fill all the sketchbooks I have laying around the house. Nothing says “sad” like a shelf full of empty pages. I wanna scribble on ’em. >}

So in closing, the death of Borders has me buying more oddball comics and wanting to draw more. Good? Bad? Not sure. :p If it ends up in me posting little comic strips and sketches then it’s total win. 😉

Yes, I’m hinting I wish to do that. ^_____^
