Revision of Magic Happens in progress

0

Hello, Gentle Readers. It has been a crazy couple of months here. But I did want to tell you all that Magic Happens is slowly being revised. I am looking forward to Con-gregrate 2017 this year. By the way Allen I readded you as a friend on Facebook. I hope you got the confirm. Let me know

Also I have done my first beta read for someone.I will be sending that off this coming weekend. We had company for the last three months. He left on Friday. I am really happy about that. Now it is back to just Jamie and I.

I am attempting to learn my new Apple desktop. Shudders. Now it is up to four key strokes in order to move around and get anything done. I am currently writing this on my old laptop. It is a windows 7 computer. I hope it lasts until I can conquer the Apple. It is making severe buzzing noises at the moment.

 

Work still sucks majorly. I want to masyter this Apple and get a customer service position with them or Amazon. I really want to work from home. But my attitude is improving and becoming more positive. I am not listening to the negative people at work. I am quite certain if I can get something out there and published I will feel immensely better about myself.

 

In other news- The Fusion got cranky week before last. It got a flat on tuesday. And the power steering went out on it as well. So I was out of work for three whole days. I got a verbal warning because of that. And i now have no more vacation days or sick days left. Ugh.

 

But all is not lost. Went to a dealership through the credit union I bank with. We got a nice Kia Optima. It is black cherry in color and is a 2015 model. It has dual air controls, an outside temperature guage hands free blue tooth that comes through the car speakers. And lots of other nice features. It has tan leather interior as well. A really nice upgrade from the Fusion.

 

I am back to riding Here to There van service as Jamie is looking for an outside job to make some extra money. We will be moving in a couple of months as well. So lots to do here. I have kind of rambled everywhere in this post. But that is ok. I am entitled to a long post every once in a while. Take care all. Have a nice week. I will most likely write more this coming week.

Quick nano update

0

Ok Gentle Readers. A quick nano update. I am now over 15k words so far. So more than halfway home on t still haven’t finished the first story yet. Sigh. I think it wants to become a novel instead of a short story. Shakes head. Why do athat 30k word count. I think I am  least eight five percent of my short stories want to be novels? It can be a real pain in the ass when I am trying to write short fiction. Does not bang head on laptop as I long to do sometimes. I think I will start up another story because this one is starting to drive me insane. And yes I know Allen. You don’t have to say it. “Finish what you start.” It will be finished this month. I plan to work on it some more today. But now am going to let my brain relax with a movie. It is starting to remind m is half the fun isn’t it? Making them get out of all the hot water you put them in. And I am learning some gangster speak along the way. Oh and about booze and drinking back then as well. They really liked their hooch. And apparently looking at the legs on women. Chuckles. I think most men like that. There is always something to draw the eyes to you. How you dress and act does as well. Anyhow am rambling. Will write more later. Take care all.

“Of course you can kill them. Just do so in a new way.” e of an endless loop. I write the story and it keeps growing and growing and growing. Kind of like the Blob but it is the never ending short story. I am attempting to use gangster slang from the 1920s as well. And now will be putting in some famous landmarks from New york as well. My poor MC is up to his neck in trouble. But thatdoing pretty good. But

Magic Happens for Nano 2017 is a go!

Hello, Gentel Readers. It has been a while since I have bothered to post and update here. So here goes. magic Happens is now an official 2017 goal for my April Nano project. It will be a series of short stories about magic and what happens when it is used and abused. It is put in the fantasy category. I plan to have a goal of 30, 000 words as a base goal. I can go higher if I need or want to. I have until April 20th to update or change my word goal as needed. I have set up a private cabin as well as I think the cabins are getting way too big at up to 19 members as a whole. Personally I don’t do well in that large of a group. So I set my cabin to private. I plan to send out invites soon. Simon If you read this e-mail me please as I would love to have you in my cabin this year. It has been ages since the first camp nano we did together and I know Jamie would not object to seeing you hang out with us once more. Anyone else that wants an invite drop me a line. Space will be limited to ten spots only.

 

Still plugging away at Dark World as well. But Magic Happens will take priority as I want it done by my Con in July. So Things are going to pick up here and I am going to blast this April nano as hard as I can. I want it done in april, and rivised and edited by June. You all think that is too ambitious of me? Magic Happens will be fun as I explore the use and abuse of magic and what happens after that. I will most likely post some excerpts up here to whet your appitite for the whole book. So keep your eyes peeled and give me some honest feedback please.

 

If you want to join the cabin e-mail me at : ladysoket@live.com. And let’s rock Nano 2017 people! Looking forward to those requests to hit my inbox.Have a great day and happy writing to all of my writing buddies.

Captured A Dark World Tale

Hello all my Readers. Here ies.

 

Lady S.s the beginning of a short story. It will be used in my Dark World game setting. I am hoping to write some each day. The first Nano is coming up in April and I want to get my word count up for it. Lots of new stuff on the horizon. Writing, excercising, eating more healthy foods and drinks and losing some weight are on my mind currently.

 

What are your goals for 2017? Drop me a line and let me know. I am eating better and sleeping more. That has made a big difference this week for me. I will be doing Nano this year. The camps are in April and July. The big fifty thousand is in November. Looking forward to the rush of fun at Camp Nano as usual. I have a lot of things to write up. And am working on some personal issues as well. Becoming more positive a little at a time. Trying to dump some old emotional baggage that has been holding me back from doing things for years. Dumping the past in order to let the future unfurl as it will. Also want to work on some “Your Character Here” stories. So anyone thatwants one drop me a line and ask for rat
