Manic Purrsday

Cat mommas know it's Purrsday today. :)

I got my cat new food and water bowls since the old plastic ones were getting dirty. The new ones are metal and Toby seems to like them better.

We got into trouble for having our kitty play-dates in the hall so we have to have them in one apartment or the other. Stupid thing to be called on the carpet for. Not like the cats hurt anyone.

Anyway, I've been busy with real life.

My friend Mary went into the hospital on the 6th. She had had a mild heart attack--if you can call one mild. Then had open-heart surgery on the 13th. And now she's in Rehab.

I've been running her errands and working extra hours those two weeks, though taxes cut into that bit. The closet also got a bit of de-cluttering. I had a small box of photos and a box of misc that I went through and straightened up the one side. There is still the crate of stories that need to be inputted into the computer but I need to write the stories in my head down first before cluttering it up with more. :)

I only wrote about a paragraph in my novelette Sands but I plan to get back to it now that I should have more time. Hopefully I can get it done by the end of July and get into Water. I still want to publish Water by April or May 2017.

I still plan to work on my dragon story Tail for Jano.

Claw and Wind are, of course, started and will hopefully be finished by the end of 2017. Flames' and Waters' bibles are started but I still have to flesh them out a bit. The two sci-fi nano stories ideas are inputted but I haven't started bibles on them yet and Aether's still solely in my head.

That's the status so far on my stories.  Hopefully I'll have more to report next week.

Manic monday back on

Not been feeling like writing so I've not done much.

Still in Chapt. 11 on Sands. I wrote like two sentences since my last blog.

 So I'm going to sit myself down tonight after work and write something!

I still plan to finish both Sands and Water before Jano so I definitely need to kick myself into gear and finish Sands by the end of this month.  That will leave me 5 month to get Water done.

Tail and Claw are next up for Jano as well as Flames and Wind for 2017.

Jano is Sleuth's version of the November novel writing month where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month. It just happens in January instead. If you want to know more about it or participate you can go to Sleuth's Ink site at

Never too early to plan.

I'm still looking through the Latin phrases for what to put on the toll coin besides abyssus abyssum invocate or deep calls to deep. What would you put on such a coin?

In Fire I show the spirit plane or Aether a bit when she merges her elements so I have to introduce that in Sands. Explain it a bit I suppose.  Sands is after all a get-to-know-you book. :)
