• Snippet of Soul Mage

    It’s cold. As in a miserable wind chill. Of course, by the looks of the storms hitting east of here, from Minnesota to Main to Florida, I’ve nothing to complain about. So I will endeavor not to. First day of…

  • Old or antique?

    The purple I put in my hair is not holding. That means my hair is too healthy. Dammit. So I have to do a bit of bleaching apparently. The color is also oddly darker than usual, so maybe the bleach…

  • The day that was/is

    Remember that post I made with the saddle that reminded me of Sheri Tepper’s Grass? Today I got awesome spam mail wanting to buy it. Bwahahahaha! And if it *was* like the Grass device, they’d be so very sorry to…

  • TV annoyances and 7th graders

    I used to like Love it or List it. It’s a show on HGTV. There’s always a couple who are debating whether to move or not, and a designer gets a budget from them to try to fix their house…

  • Sunday Morning Coming Down

    Ah, love me some Johnny Cash (via Kris Kristofferson with that song).   Today I got work done on the WIP. Have fully slipped into edit mode and have been chopping, reshaping, snipping, and rethinking. I hate to say it…

  • effort

    In an effort to not get swamped by the blues today (to some slight success), I cleaned and did laundry. Cleaning is important because of course, at any time someone could come look at the house. Or so I hope.…

  • Recovery

    As I mentioned, yesterday I finished my proposal chapters. Late last night, I finished polishing them up to send to my agent. Part of that polishing revolved around consistency. I had changed some name spellings and some capitalizations, and I…

  • ritual words

    Last night I was going to bed and then suddenly had a burst of energy and creativity, and stayed up til 3 a.m. to finish the chapter on the WIP I was working on. It was a little bit difficult…
