Monday Rewind

funny-pictures-my-official-monday-face How can it be Monday? Oh…yeah. Saturday was a blur and Sunday was a day of snooze. Oops.

Lawyer Guy and I presented the afternoon program for OKRWA. It was a run-through of the panel we’re doing at RWA Nationals in July. We found and are “fixing” some glitches so it should be good to go. I didn’t write but I did a whole lot of brainstorming! I’ve figured out the black moment, some funny stuff, a family intervention or two, and today I’ll be head’s-down-BICHOK writing marathon for the rest of the week. I want the first draft done by Friday. Period. I may be scarce as a result.

As some of you (from Facebook) know, I had a major technological meltdown Friday. A corrupted login .ini on Windows locked me out of my desktop. I’m back in, and mostly up and running. I still can’t access Office or Word. This is bad. I’m working on it. Luckily, my draft writing is all on Scrivener and Dropbox so I can work. Speaking of, you can sign up for a free Dropbox account and back up your files easily! CLICK HERE to get your account. (I get extra space if you do, just sayin’. 🙂 )


Old season ended. No more Game of Thrones for awhile so I’ll have to look elsewhere for my betrayal/blood-n-guts fix. 😉 Almost Human bit the dust. This makes me have a sad. 😥 Bitten has been renewed and will be back this winter as will Lost Girl. Yay! In the meantime, Longmire and Rizzoli and Isles are back. Penny Dreadful on ShowTime is dark and freaky and I’m not sure whether it will become a favorite yet. True Blood is back for its last season. I stopped after the fae stuff but will watch again, at least on DVR because…last season. And Alcide. *sigh* TNT’s The Last Ship premiered last night. WOW! Intense action, last hope of the world show with hot guys! Can you say inspiration? Iffy can! ❤ SyFy's Dominion started last week. It's DVR'd. Rumor has it there are hot guys there, too. I'll catch up on it soon. And finally, coming in August from TNT, Sean Bean in Legends. He's a very special CIA operative. There's something else out there coming soon and I can't remember at the moment. Ah well.

Reading: Still doing lots and lots of it. I've hit 101 on reads and rereads, though Goodreads says I'm at 98. I'll up my goal soon. I finally got started on Nalini Singh's Psy-Changling series. Oh, yeah. Hot stuff and very interesting worldbuilding. I have a friend who would find the Psy-Net, the NetMind, and the Web of Stars facisnating but he doesn't read romance. I'm starting book 3 and will wend my way through at night after I've exhausted Iffy on SWEETHEART.

So what did y'all do this weekend? What summer shows are on your radar? And what good books have you read?

    Sorry about your computer woes. Fingers crossed you can get back into Office and Word soon. Totally suggest making the switch to Mac. 😉

    I saw y’all had a panel at RWA and will mark on my schedule to attend. I need to start working on getting into some of the publisher parties now….

    I missed The Last Ship last night. I was still recovering from the premier of True Blood. I have a friend who is giving me her HBO GO log in info so I can watch the rest of the season (free HBO over the weekend). As I’ve never read the books, not sure how the show is different.

    So glad you are reading the Psy-Changeling books! I love that series so much! Pretty sure I have them all in print and digital.

      I finally accomplished about 1:45. Now I’m worn out. I want a nap! ZZZZZZZ

      Having to stop the Psy books for the moment. The next in the series is out on loan and I have to wait until it comes back in to the library. LOL Since I need sleep, this is probably a good thing. On True Blood, I stopped reading the books after…8? 9? And the series lost me when they made a left turn away from the books. Frankly, for several seasons, Sookie was starting to look and act like a Mary Sue Special Snowflake (can you say Anita Blake?) so I moved on to other series. But since this is last season, I’ll hang in there. 🙂

  2. Yikes on the computer glitch, keep fingers crossed you get back what you need.
    Will check out Drop box later today*winks help you out where I can, speaks a selfish fan who wants more Silver writing-lol*
    Reading the White Trash series by Teresa Mummer, don’t let the title threw you, I can on some levels relate with the characters, feeling kinda out of place, but my writing is my grounding, there’s is writing songs/music.
    Had a company function Sat at Main Event ( games, bowling, lazer tag, etc)
    drink a few more beers then usual, but I was with the rowdy group-lol.
    Well have a great day =)

      Dropbox is a great way to back up all your important files, Kimber. Plus it’s easy. If I can figure it out,…it’s EASY! 😆 Now I can get back in the groove of spitting out words. I don’t handle technologically-induced stress well at all. Makes me want to curl up in a fetal ball under the covers.

      And gee thanks. Now I want a beer! 😀

Got something to say?
