Okay, my brain isn't really working today... I have half a chapter to convert on TLOM-RAMTBB before I send it off to my beta Sue... and then it is a matter of sending the clean MS to editor... then I can concentrate on the other things like finishing Angels on Top and my SSP... Hubs is building or extending his mothers deck/veranda in New Zealand... thank God I am not there... I would only have to help... LMAO. Em's car goes in to get a new bumper today before she can begin the process of trading it in on a larger car... why the Hubs got her one that even he had trouble fitting in I don't know... I hate getting in the thing... I got my new glasses yesterday so everything is looking a little clearer and the headaches have receded... A big WOO-FRICKEN-HOO to that.

I am seriously tired... everything that could break in my house has preceded to do so since my husband left. It started out with the laptop and has slowly progressed to more expensive items in the house... and he is still away for another four weeks... what else can go wrong?
I still have three chapters to convert in TLOM- RAMTBB and it is driving me insane.... how did my editor not want to reach through the computer and strangle me??? POV's jumping all over the place... hopefully this time around it will read a lot smoother.
I had rellie's over on the weekend Jake & Jared my two nephews so I had to make them chicken spaghetti... with enough leftovers for them to take home. I think they only come to visit for the chicken spaghetti...LMAO.
Next week Emily goes for her last injection at the allergist... three years of needles but so worth it... not having to listen to her non stop sneezing is a blessing.
I still need to finish my Christmas short: Angels on Top, and I still have no clue what I am going to do with it once it is done.

I am bummed, the crazy laptop has died and I had to buy a new one... it sucks the big one... on a brighter note the new one is Red & Black two of my favourite colours. I pick it up tomorrow as the guys is downloading a heap of stuff onto it for me.
Also I gave up drinking Coke today... why would I do that? Why am I punishing myself? Who would know because I certainly don't. I wonder how long this will last... they tell me water is better for me but seriously I am starting to wonder.
The other bit of news is someone backed into my daughter's car this morning and wrecked the front bumper. So now we have to organise to get that fixed... Thank God for insurance.
Okay I will end it of here with a quote, it just seems appropriate:
Life is like an ice-cream cone.
When you think you have it licked.
It drips all over you.

Okay, well this is what is happening with me this week...
1- I have learnt how to use the tracking edits, (believe anyone that knows me know just how big a deal that is - Techno Savvy I am not).
2- I have also been given the go ahead to make the changes in The Lines Of Marsden 1: Rules Are Meant To Be Broken. so for the next three weeks I will be busy doing that and trying to bring up the word count a fraction.
3- I have put the SSP on hold until after the Changes are done and TLOM is back in the hands of my editor.
4- I am about 8k from finishing my Christmas short story: Angels On Top.
5- Well really that is it... though I do have a eye test scheduled for tomorrow and my laptop needs to go in and be fixed... it is still acting all crazy on me... hopefully it is an easy fix.

Well all my electronics seem to be playing up today... My lap top has gotten even crazier than it usually is... Face book is rejecting posts... Twitter has been hacked and I keep getting the same message off different people. And I have heard say that Blogger is refusing to post, I suppose I will find out when I try and post this. So I will have to spend most of my time trying to fix this damn mess.
Other than that I am still trying to catch up on my edits... My beta reader is probably ready to kick my arse as I told Sue I would have them to her three days ago... So on that note I am out of here to try and do something... I just haven't worked out what yet... LMAO.

Okay, my tattoo is a tad sore due to smashing it on the bedroom door handle... Seriously... why do doors need handles to be at the same height as my fricken tattoo...LMAO. Actually at the time it was more like swearing my head off (really loudly). Today I may fall behind on my SSP as I have had to do edits for my contracted book for MLR... but I hope to make it up later. Honestly and this is a secret so don't tell anyone... it took me a while to work out how to do my edits... I had to email my beta reader and find out about tracking, but now I am clued it it seems to be running fine... Though my poor editor might be pulling her hair out.
I will be away again tomorrow as I have to take my daughter to the chiropractor to have her leg and hips stretched... so that will put me further behind in my work... so it looks like the SSP will get dragged out to the three weeks. I just sent the first 15k to my beta reader to see what she thinks. Hopefully she will like it. I will let you all know on another day what Sue thinks... mind you she is probably pulling her hair out as well due to the punctuation she will have to fix.
Oh damn I still have to write tomorrows blog story so that I can post it tonight so that you guys will have it for the morning... well on that note I better away so that I can get cracking on everything that I have to do.
I will talk to you all later.

I am keeping on track with my Super Secret Project... not that it is super, or secret, that title just kinda has a cool ring to it... by the first week in October I will probably tell you all what it is... unless of course I screw it up and toss it out.
I was supposed to get my first lot of edits back over the weekend but they never turned up... so it means a little more waiting... I shot my wonderful editor a note letting her know they have gone AWOL... my email likes to screw with me... I am sure it eats half the emails that I receive. I swear my computer has something against Americans as they are the only ones I seem to lose... my poor editor must get frustrated when she has to send things twice... lucky I have a nice one.
I ditched the super (Flexible & waterproof keyboard). I swear honest to god, that thing hated me... it would never put in the spacing... drove me insane... so in the end I dragged back out old faithful... the coffee has dried and it seems to be working again... and I can type on it.
My blog story is getting out of hand... I need ideas on how to rescue Brayden and his father Thayer... I only write it like ten minutes before I post it, so if anyone has any thoughts on When The Walls Come Tumbling Down... let me know so that I can work them in before the end of the story. I think The Freedomers will be my next Blog story... if you don't know what that is go back through and check when I did that week of snippets... I know I did one for The Freedomers. Or if there is something you would like to hear about send me some thoughts and I will see what I can do... but be warned... I am mainly a preternatural/paranormal writer...

Today I started on my super secret project, and I hope to have it completed in two weeks... three tops. I won't go into it too much just yet... Well not until I work it out in my own head first... so keep you fingers crossed that I can pull it off. At this stage I plan on writing 5K every day until it is complete... all depending on how snowed under I get with my edits on my contracted book.
I am actually fairly excited about this project, and it all come about by a simple comment my friend Taylor V Donovan said about one of her own brilliant works. So thanks Tay. Okay, so on that note I must away as I have work calling out to me...

I have to get my laptop fixed... hope it is a simple fix and I don't have to buy a new one... it is acting crazy... I will be typing away and all of a sudden I look at the screen and the damn thing has jumped and I am now typing in the middle of the previous paragraph... it is driving me nuts.
I shocked my family on the weekend and cleaned my office...really I was trying to find something I had misplaced... I am trying my hardest to keep it tidy... my house is spotless... it is just y office that is chaotic and disorganised... I blame the hubby, if he could just finish building the last few things then I wouldn't have so much stuff laying around... Okay, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

2:- I am working on extending- Shadows on the Heart.
3:- I am working on the sequel to Shadows- (On the Flipside of Reverse).
4:- I am working on my Christmas short story- Angels on Top

My heart is filled with sadness today as I just found out that my very good friend Kevin Mullinax has passed away... My heart goes out to his family. I can't really think too well right now. So I think I will just post another music clip in his honour.
Kevin Mullinax RIP.
A Tragic loss of a beautiful soul.
