Robson & Other Things

Robson: is growing up so fast it has now been a week since this cute little bundle of psychotic chaos was desexed. I thought that would calm the little guy down━did it? I hear you ask. That would be a big fat no. The vet told me to keep him calm for 4 days after the operation. 10 minutes after getting him home he was chasing Oliver (our other cat) all over the house like a maniac. On the plus side, there seems to have been no side effects to him not having the quiet time afterwards.

Other Things: The weather is finally starting to get a chill to it of a morning and of an evening, but still hot as during the day. I'm trying to get as much writing done this morning as I can because I have to go and mow this arvo... and I won't feel like getting back onto the computer after that. All I'll want to do then is either curl up with a good book or watch a DVD.

I'm working on The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses again today. Hoping to make it to chapter 10 (36/7K). Wish me luck.

Working On...

I've been working on The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses. I just finished re-reading, reworking and have started on finishing the story plot line. I'm even kind of following the synopsis I wrote out━GO ME... I know where I need the story to finish so that the next instalment can start so I hope I don't get too sidetracked along the way.

NEW IDEA... or old... depending on how you look at it. I had a dream and it changed the way I'm going to write the Outside The Safety Zone series. I have been working on book 1: Hiding in Plain Sight. It's kind of an end of humanity... or rebuilding of humanity type story. I'm still trying to figure it all out. I guess you will all know when I know.

I'm A Grandma & Other News


Now that little Grace has finally entered into the world I can finally get back on track. The last 3 months have been a tad hectic for me. Hopefully, now life will start to settle once more. I'm about to jump back into my writing I have four projects on the go. I won't say which ones will get completed first until they are done so that it's a surprise... but I will say just keep an eye on the word count for each story.

Other than that all is well in the world on N.J. Nielsen... No use complaining as no one wants to hear that bullshit anyway. I did just finish rewatching Roswell. Not a bad show, but I did find myself wanting to shake the shit out of some of the characters no and again. I suppose that's what makes it a good story... You can't like them all.

I have been working on the EIC edits for Fireborn Publishing on Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go... I have to do the final read through today before I can send it back to Kathy K.

MY BOOKS: I've also still been writing up notes on all the plots for all the stories that I have to write this year. Some are coming to me easy. Others not so much as I can't remember all the character names which means I have a lot of rereading, and sometimes I really don't like rereading my own workbecause I always seem to pick up places where I could have made it better, but I never want to be one of those authors that redo their own work and then put it back out for sale. I only plan on doing that for one book and I'm not even sure if  I will for sale it or put it out for free again... but that story is for a later date (Masters of Time 1: Shadows on the Heart).

I'm about to be a grandma soon, & once bub comes along I'll finally be able to settle back into writing again. right now we are all just waiting for Emily to pop her out (so to speak). Luckily she has had a pretty good pregnancy. I mean she might not think so but compared to some people she can't really complain. She's due at the end of the month.

Running on lack of sleep at the moment as we have roadworks happening near my place. they are upgrading a road that didn't even need doing as far as I can tell. The thing is now the Commonwealth Games Baton is due to be coming through our city in 11 days and now they are scrambling to finish a job that should never have been started. So most night we have noise & flashing lights from 4pm to 5am... who needs sleep these days?
