Hello everyone. Sorry I missed yesterday posting on here and got a late start today. I just got out of a doctor’s appointment where a cast was put on my foot because of a diabetic ulcer under my big toe. Now, I am sitting out in front of a chiropractor’s office where my husband is getting checked and adjusted because of a car accident he was in. He was the passenger and the driver thought doing sixty in a thirty-five zone would be beneficial to get to where I was dealing with my sister-in-law having a bad seizure. A car suddenly stopped in front of them and they rear-ended it. He is okay but his neck and back hurt and he cannot help me as much because of it.

After we leave here we are stopping by the dealership to have our car washed and then back home where I can get some writing done. I miss my writing but now things are going back to normal and our friend came home from the hospital today which is great because we missed him. I thought that I would have had my next book ready for the editor at the beginning of this month but things got crazy for a minute dealing with family and now that I have washed my hands of them I am free to get back to living my life.

Today, the plan is to get back into working on it and having it ready before the end of the month. The way things look I might be able to have the two books I have been working on ready for the editor. I can write pretty much a whole five-thousand-word chapter a night when left alone which means that both books should be completed. Also, I have in mind of writing an erotic short story book which wouldn’t take long because I have what I need to get started. I just need to find out where to publish it at since Amazon might not appreciate it being on their site. I will have to check into it.

I do have a few things to do when I first get home like starting some laundry, sweeping and mopping the floors, and thinking about what to cook for dinner. Yes, being with a cast on my leg I still have to do things around the house. It is my punishment because I don’t know how to stay off my feet, lol.

Well, we made it home and was happy to see my friend home from the hospital. My husband is now trying to fix one of the lawnmowers so the grass can be cut. I am sitting out here on the porch writing this post so that I can also spend time with him and the dogs out in the yard.

So, let me get started on my writing while I am just sitting here on my butt with this cast on. I should be able to keep posting every day now with everything calming down and my stress level lowering. I feel pretty good today and actually look forward to tomorrow.

Well, let me get off here and get to writing and I wish everyone an awesome evening. Take care.

Good afternoon everyone. How are we doing today? I am feeling pretty good today and looking forward to the rest of my day with some writing. The house is smelling good and clean and some smooth music is playing while I am posting this. I write better when there is nice music playing. It seems to drown out all the noise around me.

It has been raining off and on all morning and I have sat out on the porch for a bit while getting the dogs out. I love the smell in the air after a good rain. So, did everyone have a good weekend? Mine was very relaxing and I took somewhat of a break from writing to clear my head and feel that there is no stress here like there is at home.

I had to go to my site and change the code for the free ebook so now everyone should have no problem downloading it. I have had some people say that they have enjoyed reading it, but it will only be free for a little while longer before going up on Amazon for sale. Please get your copy now while it is free.

Well, my day is full of getting things done with the two books that I am writing because my deadline is getting close to having them sent to the editor. I am excited about being a published author and look ahead to all the other books that I will write. I have a short story that I have to finish for the site so I will end this post here and wish everyone a “Happy Monday” and will post again soon.

Everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a great and prosperous day. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is almost seven o’clock in the morning here and a little chilly outside with cloudy skies. One of my older dogs woke me up because they had to go out and I figured I might as well stay up and make the coffee. My husband and I went to bed about three o’clock this morning so I have only had about three hours of sleep and I have a doctor’s appointment at one o’clock today. I will be taking a nap and then a shower before going.

I have had a lot on my mind lately and still dealing with my bowel problem. There has been a little drama here at home but nothing I can’t deal with. I have tried putting my mind back into my writing to escape from everything. I have two works in progress where I have five chapters written in one book and just finished the detailed and organized outline of my other book.

The audiobook of The Battle for Joshua should be completed by the end of the month and I am excited about getting it up on Amazon also. My goal and plan are to have both of my works in progress ready for the editor around the first of the month. I am proud of the three books I have published already and have high expectations for them.

Well, I need to get some other things done and wish everyone a “Happy Monday”. To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have an awesome and prosperous day. Take care.

Good morning everyone. I am up early this morning when I should be sleeping in on a Saturday. I know most of you must have had a long Friday night and are sleeping off the partying, lol. My husband and I are having coffee right now and I have taken the dogs out and then they wanted playtime which it is too early for that right now.

I am beginning my schedule this morning with this posting being the first thing on my schedule, so all of you come first every morning. I am doing pretty good this morning and I think the depression is coming under control now. It was a hard couple of weeks battling it. It looks promising this morning for me to get things done.

I have finished another chapter in my next manuscript which I have two manuscripts in progress at the same time. I hope everyone has grabbed a FREE copy of my latest ebook from this site? It has had a couple of good reviews and it is a very interesting story I think. Some of my family has enjoyed reading it. I am looking for some feedback on it, so if you have a few minutes please share it or comment on it. It took a few months to finish it, but I finally got it published and the paperback is on Amazon, but you can get a Free copy of the ebook before it goes on Amazon.

Well, it is time to get going on the rest of my schedule and I do wish everyone an awesome Saturday. “Happy Birthday” to everyone with a birthday today and many wishes for more to come. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is three thirty-four here in Dalton, Georgia and I woke up having to use the bathroom and now I sit at my computer thinking about doing some writing on one of my manuscripts. I don’t know how long I will last before getting tired enough to go back to sleep.

The weekend is finally here and I will have plenty of time to get some more chapters written. I am still on schedule with my goals for book publishing and I look forward to adding more books to my author page on Amazon.

The one thing I do know is that every time I publish a book I am very proud of myself and it is one more accomplishment in my book. I just have to keep moving forward with my goals and not allow anything or anyone to deter me from my path.

It is now time to go back to bed and get some more rest before starting my day. I hope that everyone enjoys their Friday and a very “Happy Birthday” to those who will celebrate a birthday today. May you have many more to come. Goodnight and take care.

Morning dear friends and family. How are we doing this morning? I woke up feeling pretty good and I know it is because they increased the dosage in some of my medications plus gave me a new one to keep the nightmares away. Thank you so much doctor for that because that is the main reason why I haven’t been sleeping much and beating my husband up while I sleep and he thanks you for that, lol.

It is another beautiful day here in Dalton, Georgia with the sun shining and hardly any breeze but there is a mild chill in the air. It was decent enough to take my dogs out and hang outside for a while. I came back in and made the bed and cleaned up around the house and now I am ready to get to work.

I sat here last night and got another chapter edited and will be back to writing on the new book today. I am so excited to get back to writing that it isn’t even funny. I have been going through withdrawals not being able to write. Now that things are pretty much calmed down I can take care of business. It has been a slow progress with all the drama that has been going on but now it is over and a nice quiet place to sit and work on my writing.

I’m hoping to have two books ready for the first of the month to publish and get out into the world and a few more in December ready for the first of the year. I am looking for people who would like to read an early copy and only asking for those people to leave a review on the Amazon website. If interested please send me a message with your email address and I will put you on the list to receive a copy once they are edited and before their launch.

Well, it is time to stop here and get to work. I have a short story to write and post on the site and I wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an awesome Friday. Take care.

Well, yesterday was a long day for me. Fighting with Amazon to get my manuscript right on the upload but I managed to get it up on there. I now have two published books up on Amazon and I feel pretty good about that. Here at home things are becoming stressed out, again. We go through this every month with our roommate about how she is moving out and her attitude changes. I have gotten to my wit’s end and now I am on another journey. I am so busy doing for everybody else and taking care of everybody else that it has hindered me from doing anything for me. Now, after talking it over and showing my anger with my therapist we decided it is time for me to do me now. To hell with everybody else and do things for me.

I am not sure if my husband understands that because of his tunnel vision for sleep, television, or video games but I do know that I don’t think he understands what all this is even doing to me or how I feel on the inside. He made the statement the other night how I am always stressed, well damn look at what I have to go through. He is right though, being here is a huge stressor and we need a place of our own. Our mental health team is working on that because both of my therapists deem this an unsafe environment for us and are looking to get us out of here asap.

I want to thank all of you, my readers, for listening and encouraging me to move forward and providing me the strength and support I need. I do appreciate each and every one of you to the fullest. I am so glad that I created this place to vent and it allows everyone the chance to get to know me and see that I am just another human that makes mistakes. But enough of that I still have a full list of to-do items to get done today and need to get started. For those who have a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, I wish a happy and blessed Saturday. Take care.

Good morning to all my friends and family old and new. It is a beautiful sunny morning here and actually quite cool. You can feel the cool moisture in the air and I hear the birds chirping. My husband is just now getting up and the dogs are still laying around. I have had one cup of coffee and my husband is making the next cup. I am looking forward to the day and my writing which makes me very happy. I was up a little late last night working on my next book. I am currently working on the second chapter and I already have 2500 words written for the current chapter.

I am thoroughly enjoying this book because I can immerse myself into the story and I write what I see and feel. I will have a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when I am ready to edit this book which will be a freebie. I cannot wait to share my stories with the world and I do believe they will be worth reading. I am very creative and I always find something to create whether it be a drawing I have done, arts and crafts projects which I recently made scented candles for a nonprofit fundraiser to help the homeless and needy families, or writing my books. I love what I do and encourage others to do what they love.

Today looks to be a good day so far and will get right to work on my book shortly. I hope everyone has visited my amazon page to see my first book which I have been told that it is a much-needed book and I feel the rest of the series will be my way of helping others. I would love and appreciate some reviews on it and will be building my ARC team soon for reviews. Well, it is time to get started while I have one and a half cups of coffee in me and I wish everyone a great and blessed day.
