A tat

Still hanging.

Saw this bottle and liked it. Too bad I don't have space for it. .

Computer still in shop. .

I've been reading.  Pen and paper still going for my stories. Not very far along. Harder to write old school.

So I m still around.

Still here

One of my favorite tees.

Next check I'm paying a payment on my computer.  A third.  Hopefully I can swing the rest by August.

I've been sick the past couple of days. I'm feeling better today.  I have to venture out tomorrow so I hope I feel well enough to. Bills don't pay themselves.

I've been reading mostly this last week. Two books by David and Aimee Thurlo . Second Sunrise and Blood Retribution. I'd give them each 5+ stars.  Vampires and shape-shifters. In today's society Hidden  but not . If you read them you'll see what I mean. Great books.  Makes me want to write on my shifter book.

But that will have to wait.  I have too many books on my plate right now and no computer.

So I'm hanging on still.

Old school writing just ain't the same. But I'm at least getting some writing done.   I even have the cover for the time-lost book done.

Being without a computer sucks.  So does being poor.

And I'm both!

Hanging on

Just checked my mail box and found the July issue of Writers Digest.  Finally something good and new to read.

I'm totally broke right now.  Well, 50 cents to my name.

I wrote a few pages for my time-lost book. That's the only one I can remember where I stopped on the computer.  So I guess I'll be working on it until I get my computer back.  Hard to write without names and places. But I'm using placer names until I can .   Maybe I'll get a lot done and only have to type in.  I'd like to finish at least one book before October.

I should be able to pay at least half and maybe get computer back by August. Depends on final cost.

I've been cleaning out my bookcase again. I got rid of some more books that I don't care for anymore. Some of my taste seems to have changed. I still like my normal genre but I seem to have moved on. Some of the books don't interest me any more.  Half of the romances were scrapped. I got rid of some of the books in series and only kept the ones that I thought were the best in that series. And my thrillers are down to six .  I am streamlining. I got limited space.

My writing books made the cut of course. They have their own bookcase and a whole empty shelf.

So I am hanging in there.

At least I have my phone to check emails andFB.  Doing this blog is an exercise. I can't see what I'm typing. So please forgive any misspellings.

Anyone recommend some books for me to read?

My computers going to be in the shop for awhile. I don't have the cash to get it out right now.

I've read my backlog of books so I need something new.

I like mystery, sci-fi and fantasy.  And of course supernatural.

So anyone got some suggestions?

I love going to used bookstores.

Still in a holding pattern.

New computer is ready but I don't have money.

Read a book, then reread. Just in case I missed something. Now I'm bored again.

Old school is not working for me. I can't change things or rewrite unless I scribble. Messy.

And I used to do this all the time.

I can't see what I'm typing on the phone. So I hope you can read this.

You really don't know how much you depend on something until it's gone. Though I knew I depended on my computer a lot. The phone is just not the same.

This has put back all the books. I still plan to have at least one book out by October. I have a signing tentative my set then.

Exploding motherboards

My computer is in the shop. So no more updates until I get it back.

I have to go old school. Pen and paper.
Such a boomer.

Everything is set back.

I heard some talk about my Elemental Voice series and wanted to set it straight.

EV is written the way it is for a reason. It is a series within a series. The Jaci Travers character of Mortal Voice writes the EV series.  That's why EV's kinky and a bit campy. It's a romp through Jaci's mind.

MV is written in similar style but with a twist. A serious twist.

So don't judge MV by EV.

My time-lost book.

Deeper into the Past is a terrible title for a sci-fi book but that's what's happening. They're going into the past, past misdeeds. I thought about calling it Jihad since it concerns a religious war. Both past and present in the book. The more I think about it the better I like Jihad. But I don't know...There's a lot of negativity to that word.

Well, I have time yet to think of a title.

There are five time-lost books. So five titles to come up with.

I messed around with canva.com and did some 'fake' covers. Pics I liked. So I have something to work with when I figure out the titles.

I have temporary titles for my Alliance books as well as covers using those titles. Just started on the bibles for them. 

Got a lot of bibles to put together.  I work on them when I can't write. Keeps me 'at work', even though I'm not working on a book per se. Without the bibles I'd be lost.  Too many books to keep track of. My head is just full to the brim, overflowing actually.

Which is why I write to begin with. Get all this out of my head.

They say we only use 10% of our brain. I think writers use more.
