Morpho Butterfly Art & Fighting for Word Count

The morpho butterfly has big “eyed” wings to scare off predators, but when it spreads its wings, on top, it has the prettiest blue coloring. They’re very unafraid and one was riding on the back of my sweater, traveling with me throughout the butterfly exhibit.

Okay, using 4thewords, I managed another 5,000 words yesterday on the new novella. So I have 10K now, halfway done–for the minimum word count I shoot for. I usually write between 25K-30K on a novella. I’m hoping to get another 5,000 today and tomorrow. I ended up going to my daughter and SIL’s house yesterday because my granddaughter was missing me. We had pizza and she slept in my arms for 2 hours. She’s such a sweetie.

I was setting up my battle strategy last night for the quest I’m on for today, 700 words in 130 mins, though once I have a scene in mind, I’m done in maybe 20 mins? Not sure. I wrote 1,000 words to battle a different kind of monster yesterday, and I typed as fast as I could, and was done in about that much time.

Before I write, I have to think of where I’m going with the story. then once I have an idea, I click on the fight the monster and the timer is set, and I’m off and racing. I had been fighting one monster for 250 words at a time, which is easy, quick and after 4 times of battles, I have 1,000 words easy. I also was battling one that was only 100 words at a time. It’s great when I’m not sure of what to say and I can get the 100 words quickly, so something done on the mss anyway. It’s especially good if I have to keep running to do other things, battle a monster, let the dogs out, battle a monster, let the dogs in, battle a monster, check the cooking. lol I often just click on him 3 times in succession to fight him though, because I’m on a roll, so end up with 300 words.

One of the quests I want to do today is for 3,000 words. I don’t know how that one works, but if it’s just to get it done for the day, I can, because I’ve been doing 5,000 words a day. I did one where it’s endurance–type as fast as you can for 5 mins. That was awful! I kept at the top of the scale, in the green the whole time, and in 5 mins managed to write 278 words. So it was good as far as getting something done, but it means a lot of mistakes that I had to correct afterwards. However, it forces me to just get the story down and not worry about making the mistakes and it was good story material. Which is the main thing.

When I went to my kids’ house, I ended up bringing back mending projects. My daughter can sew, but since I make teddy bears, my granddaughter believes I’m the only one who can fix her toys or clothes. lol I have her help me, so she’s learning to thread needles and sew. By the time she’s 4, maybe she can really sew. Maybe I can teach her how to embroider, hook rugs, make pot holders. My daughter was never interested in needlework. No one in my family was, so I taught myself and loved it. Which is how I turned a fun hobby of embroidery work into making teddy bears with personalized paws!

Okay, I’ve got some monsters to battle! Have a great day!

Cougar Christmas Calamity is Out!

Cougar Christmas Calamity

Cougar shifter Jessie Whittington plans to work on her psychic romance book before Christmas at the Whispering Pines Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior, but peace and quiet aren’t exactly what she’s going to get right before Christmas.

Former army ranger Emerson Merriweather has returned home after being ambushed on a Black Ops mission, and now learns his uncle has died. When he meets his only guest at the cabin resort, he’s surprised she’s a cougar too. Before long, a blizzard hits, bear shifters wreak havoc, and he’s helping Jessie decorate for Christmas. Something he never thought he would be doing.

Jessie’s definitely the light in his life but he still has to take care of the man who set him and his team up during the mission. He knows he will be looking for Emerson to finish the job. Mystery and intrigue are the name of the game and things aren’t always as they seem. https://read.amazon.com/kp/card?preview=inline&linkCode=kpd&ref_=k4w_oembed_fWd0RXypjwLAHo&asin=B08QNKNB7D&tag=kpembed-20

It’s finally up at all the sites!

Currently, I’m working on A Date with a Wolf–5,000 words done. It’s a novella that will come out in Silence of the Wolf’s 10th Anniversary, so I’m shooting for 20K and it will probably be around 25K+. I did use 4thewords to fight monsters to write 5,000 words yesterday. It helps me to stay focused for 250-400 words at a time and then go off and do other chores before I settle down to write another bunch of the story. I hope to continue the trend until my son arrives for Christmas on Saturday evening. I could possibly have this novella mostly written by then if I can keep up the writing. Little one is at home, so that’s helped.

I took this photo of an old Ford truck in Salado, Texas, an old stagecoach town. I added a new background, a texture layer over it, glowing headlights, and removed the tree that was all over the original truck.

I’m off to send my new release newsletter and then fight more monsters for word count. Have a great day!

It’s coming, yay! I had to run to the grocery store first thing, and I was weeding, now back to edits on Wolff Brothers 2. I’m on chapter 10, long ways to go. I need to add a couple of things and just looking for anything else I need to change before I turn it in.

I saw a BEAUTIFUL rainbow yesterday, nearly burned my grilled cheese sandwich when I saw it because food went out the window, and I was trying to capture the rainbow instead. We rarely see them here.

It has to be a good luck rainbow, with unicorns and such. Of course!

I’ll try and share it and some of the hummingbird pictures if any turned out later. I need to download them to my computer first.

Have a great day!

They’re settling in for a quiet winter, when their lives suddenly become way more exciting than they’d ever planned.

Private Investigator and gray wolf shifter Nicole Grayson is hot on the trail of a dangerous criminal hiding out at the ski lodge when her partner takes ill and must leave her to pursue the mission alone.
