Graduation and May Writing

I know, I'm late. *sigh* I really am working on it, honest. In my defense, I have been a little busy. My son is graduating this Sunday (May 19th), and school is ending for the youngest two. Summer vacation will be under way in just a few days and I can't wait. At the same time, I can. Once they're home that means I'll hear more 'Mom, she took that.' and 'Mom, make her stop.' There are many others, but if you have children or nieces and nephews, you know what I'm talking about.

I have also been called up for jury duty. Yeah, since it involves something I've gone through I won't be sitting there long. No defense attorney wants me sitting in judgment over his client. I detest jury duty. :-(

On a happier note...Spring final sprung and we've been dealing with warm weather. I mean awesomely warm weather. It's GREAT! My toes are unfroze and so is my nose. For the most part I am warm morning, noon and night. Happy, happy, happy! *singing*

As for writing...Oh that's been fun! I've finished Twin Flames: Soul Destiny, now I'm working on the submission package. Have I mentioned I'm SO not a fan of a synopsis? Yeah, I'm not. I know I have to write one, at the same time, I'm a pantser, which means I fly by the seat of my pants through the stories I write. Or as many writers prefer to say, my characters write the story, I'm just the tool they use to get it told. So outlines and all that, I don't have. And trust me when I say, when I have plotted, the story stopped dead in its tracks until I let it flow the way they wanted it to and not what I wanted. Lesson learned. *laugh* Let characters write the story, I'll just go with the flow. :-) I have also finished Book #4 in the Twin Flames series. Took just over a week to start it and finish it. Talk about AWESOME! I am a happy camper. The only thing missing is a title, hence the 'Book #4', I haven't figured out a title for it. Now I am starting on Book #5. Would be nice if that ones does the same thing as Book #4, I have a feeling it will. *chuckle* Just let it flow...

Alright, I'm out. I have to get some writing done and start thinking about a blog post for the MuseItHot blog that is starting back up again in June. When I know more I'll share here. Take care!

Hello All!

Well, I'm slowly starting to freeze again. It's funny, last week Tuesday we go buried under snow and then it melted around the weekend or so. Then on Tuesday (of this week!) we got plowed again! Same icy temps and wonderful 'white gold' with the frigid winds to boot. Now, don't get me wrong. I love snow and winter (it's actually one of my favorite seasons), but this is the middle of April. Doesn't that mean, rain? *sigh* Oh the joys of messed up seasons.

I've been horrible at posting here and I don't have a good enough excuse. I do apologize though. However, I can give you a reason for my absence and erratic postings. I have the attention span of a flea. No seriously, I do! I get sidetracked just leaving the living and going to the bathroom. Now if I'm heading to the kitchen...well, there's a whole other matter. Because I'll end up washing dishes or the counters. Hell, I'll even start sweeping the floor and rearranging the cupboards! While all of this is happening I'll promptly forget my true reason for walking away from my work and the computer to begin with. The next thing I know, I'm off doing something totally different again. You've heard, 'you're focus needs focus' well, in my case my attention needs attention. *laugh*

I'll barely acknowledge the Boston Marathon Bombing and the West Fertilizer Plant Explosion as well as the recent (tonight, Thursday) shooting on the MIT campus. That's just too much sorrow to focus on for longer then to say, I pray for each and to say it will get better.

My not paying attention to them may seem cold to you, but I am a writer, a mother, wife, sister, friend and the list continues. I prefer to enjoy the goods times over the bad, that's why we have them. And why it always seems the bad outnumber the good. It's because we're looking and seeing things the way we shouldn't. We should be looking at the good over the bad. I'm not saying ignore what happened, I'm saying acknowledge and move on. That's what healing is all about. Trust me on this, we all need the white light of healing surrounding right now.

So, I've rambled on about nothing and everything. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. I hope I haven't bored you to tears yet. *chuckle* I can, give me time and I will. Bad habit I guess you could say. I have set a timer and the alarm will sound next week about this time and I plan to here posting again. Even if it's just a short paragraph telling you all that I'm alive and well...and buried up to my eyeballs again in snow! Yeah, that's what they're saying. More of the 'white gold' is heading our way Sunday and Monday. I'm not really looking forward to it. My toes are ice and my nose is red. I really need the warmth that is normally Wyoming in April. Right now the yard is either mud, frozen, white or brown. Ick! I haven't seen green in my yard in almost a year. Now that's just flat out sad. Just sayin'...

Has anyone ever wondered how we become reliant on other people, or just things in general? I've been wondering that recently. Yeah, the strange shit that wanders through your mind when you're sick, it's flippin' crazy! Anyway...Recently I've tried to figure out how I became reliant on certain things. Like, a computer, or music. Normally people don't see those things as addictions or items you can rely on. However, if you didn't have either, well, you'd miss them. I know I would. Even as a writer who can write as long as I have a piece of paper and pencil, I'm good to go. Now, if my hands stopped working like with RA, then I'd need my computer. As for music...well, I use tunes to transport me to another place deep within myself. The place where I create everything. I know, sounds crazy, huh? It does, but when it's what you've done for many years, if not decades, you realize you've become reliant.

So since I've bored you with something completely unrelated to writing I'll go back into my hole in the wall and see what other things I've relied on over the years. Have a good one ya'll!!

Twin Flames: Soul Memory Released

So as you can see I've been a little busy recently. Twin Flames: Soul Memory was released last week Friday (January 18, 2013) and I've been working on Twin Flames: Soul Destiny, which is the finale for Jairo and Joy. Does that mean the end of the series? highly doubtful, however, it does mean the end of taking two couples through three books. Not doing that again! LOL Seriously though, once I got through content and line edits, awaiting the cover, (which is AWESOME by the way) I started snipping away at the third book and ended up starting another. Ugh! The ideas that roam through your mind when you're supposed to being one thing instead of another are INSANE!

Anywho...added more content to Immortal Divides and Immortal Council and I think I can safely say I almost have Immortal Choice completed. Of course those are all up for debate, as every writer knows even when you think your finished you aren't actually. *sigh* So we shall see.

Recently I've roamed through just about every old manuscript I have and still can't really decide where to start working again. It never ends, does it? Nope, not really. Not if you want to remain in the writing industry and keep the readers attention and have them coming back for more.

And yes, I realize I've fallen behind on posting, sorry about that. I really was my intention to do better. Maybe that should've been my New Year's posting more timely. I can still pop that in there as I forewent the one about losing weight. *smirk* If it doesn't work the first -million- times why then keep adding it to the list? Just sayin'...

Okay, as much as I'd love to keep rattling on and boring ya'll to tears, I'm going to take my leave and see what I can put down for Kia and Brock...yeah, those are the names of my two mains in the next Twin Flames stories.

Be well, stay warm and Blessings to one and all!
