I am back for now (I think)

January 21, 2009 at 1:19 am (Uncategorized)

Yes, I know my title says it all. The last few months have been hell and I have just been getting back into the swing of things online in the past few weeks. The reason why I have dropped off the face of the earth is quite simple really my supposedly good hip don’t like me. Seriously one little fall and I can sit up for an hour at a time – yeah computer time fell to the curb when just doing dishes put me out for the count. Good news it isn’t so bad now, fake hip acts up a little with the extreme cold – bad news eventually I will have two fake hips not exactly what any tweny nine year old wants to or cares to hear.

Hmm, what else to mention – not much at the moment really.  I will be posting a short story here around Valentines Day to get into the whole mood. I still hate valentines day but hey maybe it will get my mind off things. But I have decided that no matter what this year of 2009 is going to be a damn good year even if I do have another surgery. I am trying to think positively and have alrea

Sorry for not posting

September 21, 2008 at 2:29 am (Uncategorized)

Yes I know I had promised an excerpt and it isn’t here I will try to post it still this weekend (Monday at the latest). The reason I have been so sick from my hips lately I can only sit up for half an hour at a time before I get physically ill from the pain. Sadly cleaning comes before computer and I still have no laptop at the moment. I am going to try and contact my surgeon to see what is going on and hopefully be back to normal soon!!!

Time really does fly and Ashes

August 28, 2008 at 9:23 pm (Uncategorized)

I know that does seem kind of corny but I haven’t realized until the last few months of how true that statement really is. Fall is just around the corner and I can’t wait it is my favorite season – cooler temperatures, kids back to school so the apartment is quieter, the leaves eventually change color and Halloween arives with some interesting television specials.

On top of it September is just a few days away and with it comes the release of my very first book, Ashes. I am going to two chats so far to discuss the book and give some copies away. I will also post an excerpt soon and the time and place for the upcoming chats with links so stayed tune.

This summer is insane!!

July 24, 2008 at 5:11 am (Uncategorized)

I haven’t had a chance to post here much less think of what to post. My dress for the wedding has finally come in with two weeks to spare *wasn’t too sure if I could cut it any closer*. Watched the new Batman movie on Friday night – everyone thought I was crazy to get my tickets two weeks early and I know that I did the right thing. Even though I still had to wait in a line for two hours just to get a seat *I like aisle seats*.

My review of the movie, I refuse to review it. This is just something that you have to see for yourself to believe and all the hype is dead on. I am already itching to see it again but when I tried to yesterday it was sold out yet again – I suppose I can wait a week or two but I have never been known for my patience. Seriously though I know better than to review anything with Gary Oldman in it. It would end up being something along the lines of – Gary Oldman is drool worthy as the one if not the only decent cop in Gotham.

See I think it is a good thing that I won’t go there. Hmm what else has been going on with my normally boring and quiet life – have another appointment with my surgeon in August, still working on my diet and lost a whopping 30 lbs. I know that sounds good to some but my goal is another 50 by Christmas – that way I will be at my ideal weight for my height or whatever that crap is. I am even looking at clothes – never been one into the whole insane over clothes thing *well not since high school – but I had no money then so I didn’t get anything I liked lol.

The Los Angeles trip plans  are coming along swimingly – exactly three weeks in a city far from home I really can’t wait. Planning some shopping and all that jazz but I am soo looking forward to just going to a coffee shop with my new laptop that I am getting next month *yeah!!* and just writing without worrying about getting home too late or something. Yup, I have to go to another country to do this *sad I know*.

It seems that my website won’t be up until after my first release (due to all my money going on weddings and trip deposits). Which I am kind of disappointed about but at least i am getting one and that is all that matters. I have tons *yes I said tons* of projects in the works right now and I am actually thinking of another pen name. But I am not rushing anything I like taking my time and get what I want to get done at my own pace. Something that I have finally allowed myself to do to sit back and relax, and it surprisngly feels good.

Anyway I promise to post some work progress in the next day or two and perhaps figure out how to change my in work progess meters on this blog.

I hate being sick

June 20, 2008 at 2:12 am (Uncategorized)

To be perfectly honest I am/was not sick but I had a few health issues that was just making my life miserable I will not go into details since I don’t even want to be reminded. The writing has been going slow perhaps a little too slow for my liking but when September I will have a new laptop and hopefully two months of coffee shop hoping before I am stuck in the house again.

August is creeping ever so closer and I just realized that after the wedding ceremony my sister is going to have light snacks and dancing. I can’t dance not like that is a shocking fact but I know that being the maid of honour I am kind of expected to stick around and I am fine with that idea. I can’t help but wonder if it would be wrong to bring a binder to do some writing when I am not helping out that is.

I am still debating if I should make my big Los Angeles trip for January or February I really would prefer to go to London but I think it would be a little to cold for my poor hips at the time and it is like ten times more expensive – go figure. I still want to go to London i just don’t know when.

As anyone can plainly see I really have quite a bit on my mind I am still planning a b. party for my sister as well. She don’t want any of the wild stuff like strippers and so but the one thing that is a must is chocolate strawberries. Cool. Now I am debtaing if I should have it at her place or someplace else. So many choices and so little time I have about three weeks tops to put any plans into motion.

Blah, Blah my head just feels so full and heavy why does it always seem like everything hits at once? Oh, I almost forgot I get to see my surgeon a week and a half after the wedding so I have so much more to look forward to lol. The one thing I really, really can’t wait for is The Dark Knight is coming July 18th – I will be getting my tickets at the beginning of July or there abouts I always get them earlier I hate line ups lol.

Love, lust and the whole dang thing

May 20, 2008 at 12:21 am (Uncategorized)

I know it sounds like the title to a bad country song but hey it suits my mood sort of. I got no writing done this weekend I was sick and hated it, I know no one in their right mind likes being sick but I hate it with a passion. I am so frustrated right now I can scream and the only sad thing about that is I really have no clue why I am so frustrated. Perhaps it is because I am insanely moody lately or because I had a few ideas for my current projects and couldn’t get any writing done.

Grr, as if being sick wasn’t enough I had it rubbed in my face my lack of a social life or to put it much more plainer my lack of a man. Hello? Yes I know what I am missing in my life at the moment I really don’t need to be constantly reminded. *Gee, I think I know why I am frustrated* Hey I would love to be in a stable relationship or whatever but for now it just isn’t in the cards I am fine with this really I am. Ok, maybe I wouldn’t feel so lousy about this detail if I am not constantly asked when I will have a child or get married or whatever. But no I must be reminded of my advancing age *28 snort* and that I better hurry up and get myself a man. Thanks, but no thanks. It isn’t as if I hadn’t tried but I have given up a long time ago trying to get anyone to listen to anything I consider as important. My focus is on my other love at the moment and that is writing. Grr, when is enough really enough? When I finally blow and admit the truth if I did that I think I would be hurting myself more than anyone else and I really don’t need that at the moment.

Rant now over as I attempt to work on a story that has been swirling in my head for the past two days.

Too much on the mind, not enough on paper

May 12, 2008 at 1:26 am (Uncategorized)

I have been quite busy with no idea what to even write here on my poor neglected blog. Writing wise things are going incredibly well with Darkly Enchanting in the editing process clocking in at just over 14k. So hopefully that will be submitted to Nocturne Bites at the end of the month. I am alsway currently busy with a halloween novella that is a romance bordering on a horrific ghost story it is a wee bit dark but it is for halloween so what is expected I like a good scare once in awhile.

My sister is getting married in a few months and she made me the matron of honour if I hear one more crack of always a bridesmaid never a bride I swear I will seriously hurt someone! I still have to see my surgeon for a basic check up which is a pain in my rear, but everything with that is fine that I know of so I am not too worried. Hmm, my thinking of what colors I would like to use for my website which should be started soon. Speaking of websites it feels strange to say my website like I am now an official writer (well ok not until September) but it kind of feels nice.

Later this month I am going to see the new Indiana Jones flick I watched all the others ones when I was a kid and quite enjoyed them so I am kind of looking forward to this even though Harrison Ford is no Gary. I will be getting my Gary fix in July when I see The Dark Knight I have already booked two nights off to see it. I know, I know not the Gary stuff again but Gary Oldman is my muse seriously or my muse takes the form of him. Hey it works for me so I just go with it and with almost ten projects (omg I really need to cut down) of differing lengths in the works I really need my muse to work with me.

Goodness I am totally beginning to ramble again that is what happens when I have been plotting almost all day. Which sadly means my current project list is growing oh well at least I am keeping myself busy. Now I am going to dive back into some hard core writing and hopefully remember to get to bed at a decent time.
