“Happy Hump Day to everyone!” How are my friends and family doing today? I feel awesome today! I am alive and breathing. I woke up this morning with goals on my mind and a to-do list that I really haven’t started yet, lol. I had to run an errand to the doctor’s office and have been sitting here checking emails, updating files, and getting things ready for writing and editing.

My husband has been stuck in front of the television since he got up playing video games but that is what he does. It gives me my time to work on to-do lists and writing uninterrupted. I love him to death but sometimes his game playing gets on my nerves because he has tunnel vision and doesn’t want to do anything else.

We took our dogs to the vet around the corner for their booster and rabies shots which they weren’t too crazy about, but they lived. It hurt me to hear them scream in the next room while getting their shots. Then they came running back to me for security and comfort, lol. They are such big babies with big barks.

I am halfway through the last edit of “The Battle for Joshua” and then off to the editor. I am still writing my next book and love falling into the story as I write. It is a vampire series but not a romantic one that has been around. It is a story of love and tragedy, but in the end, it is of royalty and reign.

Anyway, I am having a great day and I hope that my evening is the same. For all of you with birthdays today, “Happy Birthday” to everyone else, be blessed with an awesome evening. Take care.

Good morning everyone. how are you today? I am doing pretty good this morning and had to reschedule my doctor’s appointment because my transportation got screwed up. So, that is just more time I can spend writing,

I will have finished editing “The Battle for Joshua” by the end of the week and ready to send to an editor. I am writing the fourth chapter of my next book which will also be a series. I have more time to write now since everything is back to normal here in the house and my husband and I are in the process of buying some property that we can build our house on. That is very exciting.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far? I will be looking for some readers for my book to give me some feedback on it before publishing it. It will be a freebie book. If interested in being a reader for me just send me an email at bpayne43@live.com.

Well, time to get to work. I will let everyone know when the book is ready for readers which should be this weekend, So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have a spectacular day and love those around you.

Good Morning everyone. How are we doing this morning?  I woke up feeling pretty good this morning and have been doing things around the house and I have made my to-do list for the day. Everyone is having coffee together and watching one of the nieces play the PS4. It has been a pretty good morning so far and I look forward to the rest of the day.

My writing is progressing nicely and I am still on schedule towards my goals for publishing. I spent a few hours last night editing the next chapter of “The Battle for Joshua” and it will be the freebie for my mailing list. I will be writing the fourth chapter to my next book today which is part of my goal because I have a plan to write a chapter every day.

As far as my long distance goal is concerned, I have enough books to write until December of next year. It will be a couple of books per month which will build my list of published books. I want to be a career writer which is my main goal.

My husband and I are looking into buying some property in another state which will be better for us in the long run. We are tired of renting and always having the threat of being evicted and having slumlords who don’t want to fix anything but want their rent money.

We are looking to have something we own and enough space for what we need to be comfortable. We will be homesteading while we build our dream house. It will be a fresh start for us and we have been needing this for a while. We are very excited about this and are making our plans to get started.

Well, I hope everyone is having an awesome Saturday morning and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else, have a good and relaxing day and enjoy your family time this weekend. Take care.

Hello and good morning to all. Sorry for it being a few days for my post but I have been doing a massive house cleaning. By the time I was done I was exhausted and needed a nap. I got up and made dinner and have been sitting here working on my short story while eating butter flavored popcorn. I am doing okay so far mentally but still waiting for my medications to get into my system good and then I’ll be balanced out.

My writing is going along pretty good and I am excited and addicted. I can’t see myself doing anything else but writing. I have checked my writing through an app and it says that my readability is grade 6 or 7 so they are easy reads which is what I like because then most people can read my books. I don’t believe in using really big words and want them easy to read.

I woke up around nine o’clock this morning and the first thing I had to do other than using the restroom was taking my dogs out while trying to drink my first cup of coffee. It has been getting a little colder outside and feels like a winter morning with the temperatures being in the thirties all week overnight. So, since I don’t really like the cold due to my arthritis it gives me an excuse to stay in and work on my writing.

Since I started writing, I have become somewhat of a hermit because of my addiction to writing. I try to spend time with my husband and dogs as much as possible but he stays in his video games a lot so it gives me another excuse to sit at my desk and write. My day usually consists of working on the next short story, writing on the new book, and editing the finished book plus using social media to announce my progress and accomplishments.

I am pretty busy but still manage to keep the house cleaned and meals cooked. I manage the household money and make sure the bills get paid. I have plenty of books to write that will get me through the next year and look forward to the next adventure in writing. Well, I will stop here and wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else a glorious day. Take care.

Good Evening everyone. How is your weekend going so far? I am good today, my husband says that my new medication is working because for the past few nights I have not been fighting in my sleep or beating on him. I have been sleeping soundly and not able to hear anything. My husband gets to play his game in peace while I sleep or write.

That brings me to this morning. I got so caught up in my writing last night that my husband was waking me up from my sleep because I fell asleep at my desk. He made me go get to bed. He laid back down with me until I fell back to sleep and then he got up and made the coffee. I woke up at fifteen after seven and felt wide awake until a few hours later when I was nodding off again at my desk trying to get some more work done.

I started to write a short story last night and will be finishing it tonight. It will be placed on my website under crime drama thriller page. I love writing because I can express myself and it is a coping mechanism for stress and anxiety. My sister-in-law loves reading my stories along with some other people. I have so many stories in my head that need to come on paper and I plan to get every one of them into books for everyone to read.

How was everyone’s Friday night? Did anyone party a little too much, lol? It did not even feel like it was Friday night. I stayed home with my husband watching movies before getting on my computer to write.  He is waiting for me to get another book done so he can read it. Well, it time to get to work and I wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an incredible Saturday. 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.

Afternoon everyone. It is gorgeous here outside. The sun is shining with a nice little breeze blowing. I went out and sat on the porch to feel the warm sun because I don’t go outside that much because I am busy with my writing and other stuff. I pretty much go outside only when it is time to take the dogs out.

I took my medication last night and played a few Facebook games like I do every night to wind down. While playing my games I wasn’t aware of the time and before I knew it the clock said four o’clock this morning and it was five o’clock before I went to bed. I got back up at nine o’clock and feel wide awake after four hours of sleep.

I am being positive about today and even edited another chapter last night and I will do one a day, I will be ready to send it off to the editor on the first of December so that I can post it up on book funnel for a freebie to all who subscribe to my mailing list. I will be writing the next chapter of the book I am currently writing.

For today’s birthdays, I want to wish everyone a great and awesome “Happy Birthday”. I will stop here to get to work and I hope everyone else has an awesome day. Take care.

Hello everyone. It is a very nice day outside the sun is shining but it is still a little chilly. I got up this morning and I am on my second cup of coffee. I have gotten the laundry started and the bed linen changed. I plan on getting some stuff done today with my writing. I finished and posted a short story last night and hope everyone gets a chance to read it.

Everyone is up and getting motivated to start their day. My sister-in-law is having coffee with us this morning. They are watching world’s funniest videos and laughing so much. I am sitting here looking over my to-do list to see what I have to get done today and it involves writing and posting tweets.

I will be putting short stories together for another compilation book while working on my manuscripts. I feel very motivated today and look forward to getting stuff done today. My husband has been supporting my writing and I love him so much for it.

I took the dogs out this morning and played with them while I had my first cup of coffee. I love spending time with them since they are one of my coping mechanisms when I don’t feel good. We had to buy a king size bed so we had room while they slept in the bed with us. My two oldest have slept in the bed with me since I first got them at five weeks old and my husband has adjusted to it.

Well, I am glad I got to post this morning but it is time to get going this morning and I hope to get plenty done today. I hope everyone has an awesome humpday and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and will talk later. Take care everyone.

It’s Monday!! I hope everyone has a great first day of the week. I woke up about an hour ago and noticed that it is very overcast outside and gloomy. I feel pretty good since I don’t have to get up early in the morning to take kids to school. Although, it did allow me to feel like a mother since I have to deal with infertility.

I love my great nephews to death, even when they are hellions at times. I love having kids around and watching my husband play games with them is even more fun. He is their favorite uncle and they also love him.

I am sitting here drinking my second cup of coffee trying to wake up because I have a doctor’s appointment this morning and then I get to come home and clean the rest of the house up before sitting down to get some work done. I have my list done and ready for the day’s work and will be getting things done today.

I am excited about getting some writing done along with editing a finished manuscript. I am close to getting both of them published and look forward to it. Money is tight but I am the budgeter and always stretch money to cover everything. I am waiting for my birthday and Christmas money from my dad to get any books that I have done published.

I have been working on some more short stories that will be another book, but some are for my website. It is now time to get ready for my appointment and I wish everyone with a birthday today a very “Happy Birthday” to everyone else an awesome Monday. Take care.

Hello to all my family and friends. It has been one exhausting weekend. First, there was the house cleaning for the weekend plus laundry, then our nephew and his three kids moved next door, and then trying to get our room cleaned and my desk set up and organized. There was no relaxation during the weekend.

My nephews soon to be ex-wife, who is under investigation for sexual child abuse and endangerment actually sent children services to take her children away from their father and put into states care. She is just so ignorant. She is not even stable herself so I guess she expects the state to take care of her children.

That has been the drama for the weekend. Once they didn’t take the children, she was trying to have my husband arrested for something he didn’t do. I honestly don’t know where her mind is. Then, she finally tells her husband, my nephew the truth that she is unsure who the father is of all three children. She has done nothing but hurt him and the children are suffering because of it.

On to other things, I have now figured out how to get my writing done and will be implementing it tomorrow. I have been doing some editing still on “The Battle for Joshua” and a little writing here and there on my next book. It seems to be my coping mechanism where I can get away from this world and go to a world I create for relaxation.

It has been such a pleasure writing my stories that I have found a happy place for me to be. My family has loved reading my short stories and the first two books that I have published but I want the whole world to read my books and enjoy my stories. I plan to have at least another two to four books published by the end of the year.

I am currently looking for beta readers who would like a copy of my book to read in exchange for a review written on Amazon. I think everyone especially women should read my first book titled “How I Survived: Prostitution”. It is written based on true events and would give women an insight as to the life a woman must live on the streets.

Well, for now, I must end this here even though I love talking to my readers and connecting but there are things I must get done. I wish everyone with a birthday “Happy Birthday” and for everyone else to have an awesome night. Take care.
