I’m not really a Monday kinda gal. Or I didn’t used to be. Now? I’m lucky if I remember what any day of the week is, much less Monday. Bein’ older’n dirt sucks. That said, it certainly beats the alternative. So what’s new in my world?
Let’s get the “ehh” out of the way. Writing. There was some. Not much, but some. On a happier note, I now have models for the major characters–both heroes and heroines. I had to do a switch, though. I’d picked out the model for Maura Brannigan, the assistant ADA who is in Ronan O’Connor’s crosshairs. Then I found another model and decided she was right for Maggie O’Brien, who lives nest door to Callum Fitzpatrick. I often download several pics of each character and I did with all these, as well. Then I decided I needed to put names with faces (can you say “procrastination”?) so I went into my digital file to rename all the photos. And as I compaired the original Maura with the original Maggie, I realized I had them backwards. So, that necessitated MORE renaming. I wasn’t really procrastinating. I was organizing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Stormy was over several times. He’s a fun kid and I know he and Lawyer Guy are enjoying their time together. He’s here today and tomorrow and then his school starts on Wedneday. Second grade. And he keeps getting taller! Pardon me while I go do a little muppet flail in the corner.
Still in something of a reading slump so rather than ruining what might a really good book if my head space was right, I’m falling back on favorites that alwsays hit the spot. At the moment, that’s Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. Kate and Curran are a favorite couple and it’s been about 18 months so…
Baseball is much better! My Cards are starting to get the hits and winning games. They still have a LONG and bumpy road to the playoffs but there’s a chance now. It’s good to have starting pitcher Jack Flaherty back. He had an awesome game against Kansas City in his first start after coming back up from being injured. In softball news, Oklahoma’s Little League Softball team is in the national tournament. They could come into the semi’s/finals, as the top-seeded team. We may get to watch them on ESPN2 today and ESPN tomorrow. The games are televised, I just have to remember. 🙄 I should probably put a reminder in phone’s calendar.
Waking up at 5 or 5:30 every day after a restless night usually means that I’m nostly conked out by 9 p.m. See my comment above about age. I fall asleep during the ball game and therefore don’t manage to check out other shows on TV. I only mention it for something to say and tag. LOL
That’s pretty much my world at the moment. Nothing exciting. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing to brag about. And y’all don’t want me ranting about the state of the world. Trust me. When I can’t avoid the news, I end up wanting to b!tc# slap a whole bunch of people who are too stupid to understand the implications of their previous actions.
I’ll just add this, you always need to be careful what you wish for. And to illustrate that thought, my sister from another mister, B.E. Sanderson is celebrating the birthday of her book WISH IN ONE HAND, which is book 1 in her Once Upon a Djinn series. The series is some awesome Urban Fantasy so dip your toes in for free and then grab the other 3 books in the series.
Have a great week all. What would you wish for?
Aww, thanks for the shout-out. I hope tons of people get Wish in One Hand while it’s free and then move on to the other 3 books. If wishes were fishes, doncha know. Anyway…
Yay for organizing. You’ll get those characters seated so well in your head that you can’t help but write about them. Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket. Yay for Stormy time! Gah, second grade? Already? Seems like just yesterday he was a wee tiny thing. Boo for the reading slump. I hate those and I’m in one right now, too. Blerg. Yay for your Cards and for little league! Boo for crappy sleeps. I’m there with you on this one, too. Yeah, the state of the world… gah.
Not much going on here either. I talked about digitizing slides and photos on my blog this morning because there’s a lack of anything else to talk about. I wish I had writing to talk about but no. And, like you, I don’t want to talk about the state of the world. =o\ Have a great day over there, if you can. If not, hang in there. :hugs:
Stormy is coming, the weather is a tad cooler so only 22 cents during peak hours instead of 45. And I fully intend to get at least a chapter written today. That’s approximately 2500 words. We’ll see. And yeah, I just…the world…it… I hope WISH finds a HUGE audience! That book and series deserves all the readers. Jo is made of all kinds of awesome and the worldbuilidng is fantastic! Hang in there on the fantasy. It’ll be a good one too. I feel it in my bones. 😉
