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.

Hey all! How is your day going? My husband and I were up at four thirty this morning drinking coffee with my sister-in-law and I stayed up until about seven o’clock before having to go back to bed to sleep off medication. I feel pretty good this morning and did some errands today.

I am going back to couponing to create a stockpile of stuff again. I find it relaxing and it keeps me focused. Plus, I like saving money. I have bought about five hundred dollars worth of food and only paid one hundred and thirty dollars for it.

I have been editing “The Battle for Joshua” one chapter at a time with two rounds of editing. I have already gone through the whole manuscript with the red pen and now I am using my editing software for the second round. The third round will be having it recorded and listening and following along to see if I missed anything. After that, it goes to an editor for professional editing. I am looking forward to it getting published.

I have already written the third chapter of the next book and will continue to write some more on the book this evening. It will about thirteen chapters and I feel it will be a good story. It is the first book in a series that will be very interesting to read.

Well, I am going to finish this post so that I can begin working on my book again. “Happy Birthday” to all that have a birthday today. Everyone else I hope you have a very pleasant evening. Take care.

Good morning, everyone. I can say it is a beautiful day outside, just a little chilly like a Fall morning. I have had my coffee for the morning and a nice hot shower. I have a doctor’s appointment around noon and then it is home to work on books.

I began the second round of editing on the second chapter of “The Battle for Joshua” and it is coming along nicely. There are not too many mistakes at all. It will be an easy read which is a good thing and I am anxious about publishing it. It will be going to the editor next week for a final edit.

I am getting better from being sick almost a month, but my husband has been coming down sick for the past few days. He is like me because neither of us likes to be sick. I feel so bad for him being sick but the only thing I can do is take care of him until he gets better.

We might have to take our five and a half-month-old puppy to vet because we noticed she has a large lump on the top of her head. It isn’t painful to her and could be a number of things but we need to find out if it is cancerous. She is my baby and I can’t see losing her.

Anyway, it is time for me to get ready for my appointment and I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and everyone else a very Happy Monday!! Take care.

Good morning all you special people of the world. It is a great day today and beautiful outside. I went to sleep with my husband last night at two o’clock this morning but woke up at five o’clock this morning fresh and awake. I am sitting here at the kitchen table spending time with my husband while he drinks his coffee and wakes up.

I have been working my schedule this morning and feel pretty good. My mood is in good spirits even though I am still battling being sick and coughing up crap. In a few minutes, I will be working on my next short story for the site and hope everyone has been enjoying my stories?

I am working on finishing the third chapter of my book today and will be editing “The Battle for Joshua” today per my schedule. I should be sending it to the editor on first of the month or sooner so that I can get it out to the public for reading. Well, let me get things going and to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday” and to everyone else have an awesome day.

Hello, everyone. Sorry to have disappeared for a few days. I have been dealing with some health issues that we haven’t quite figured out what is going on yet. I have been so tired and feeling so fatigued that all I do is want to sleep. I have no energy for anything and it frustrates me because I don’t know what is causing it. It has been going on for a couple weeks now but I will be seeing my therapist on Wednesday to see if she might have any ideas.

I actually sat here yesterday forcing myself to stay up and created my book writing monthly goal sheet. With everything from writing the chapters to three rounds of editing to sending it off to a professional editor, I will be writing my current list of books well into February two- thousand and nineteen. Not considering any other books I come up with between now and then, lol. I have a few ideas for some more but I have jotted them down just until I get my already extensive list of books down some. I plan to stay busy and creative.

As far as how my day is going, it is manageable. Yesterday my nephew’s girlfriend celebrated one of her son’s birthdays with a party to which I pretty much stayed in my room. I have been feeling somewhat isolated the last week or so and don’t care to be bothered with anyone else. I put on that happy face for everyone in the house but my husband and sister-in-law know that I am not being real and hiding what is going on on the inside. I am a person who holds everything in until I find a safe way to release it. I call it throwing up to my therapist, lol.

I know that I am getting older because of the way my body aches and hurts but I try to stay young at heart. Walking is difficult at times because my feet haven’t been cooperating with me lately, or hurting so much that I can’t walk. My husband tries to get me up and walking throughout the day but it hurts so bad. I remember back in two- thousand and ten when I walked from Orlando, Florida to the border of Texas for a charity walk for the homeless and here I can barely walk about thirty feet without hurting or stopping to rest.

I need to find a way to motivate myself and to keep myself up during the day but cannot figure out what to do. I have no problem sitting up at night and I have stayed up until three or four o’clock in the morning without even being tired. Those are days when I would get up in the morning and stay up all day too. I don’t know but I will be seeing my primary care physician on the twenty- sixth of this month if it is not mental health being the culprit.

Well, I will stop here so that I can make use of my up time and finish the last chapter of my book “The Battle for Joshua”. I will begin the first round of editing tomorrow and look forward to sending it off to the editor. So, to everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else have an awesome Sunday. Take care.

Hello, everyone! I apologize for not writing until now. We have moved from the house we were living in and have gone off the grid for a bit. We are roughing it out in the boonies and have no internet as of yet. We are staying a few days with my sister-in-law so that we can take care of a few things online and plus we just bought brakes for our car and my husband will be installing them tomorrow because it is raining outside.

I have still been working on my book and will be able to send it to the editor around the first of the month before publishing. I am having a wonderful time writing my book and I find it very relaxing which makes it a good coping mechanism for my mental health. I am already looking forward to writing the next one and the ones after that. I have plenty of books to keep me busy for at least another year.

I just found out that my ex-husband and his new wife moved in down the street from where we were living so it was a good thing we moved from there before any drama got started. He and the woman they moved in with are both mine and my husband’s exes. They caused so many issues when we first got married it was unreal but they have been quiet for awhile now which we really appreciate.

We have been married for four years come October and we are still on our honeymoon so my husband says, but I feel that we are more in love with each other now than when we first got married. I love him so much and I am very thankful for him. He is truly my soul mate.

Well, it is time for me to get back to working on my book and relaxing. I want to wish everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, have a very awesome Friday. Take care.

It was two o’clock this afternoon when I woke up and feel somewhat rested. My neck was a little sore which gives me a slight headache. Other than that, everything is going pretty good. Our roommates outside dog started bleeding from his nose and mouth and we can’t figure out why, but she is asking everyone for prayers over “Rebel”.

I have begun writing the tenth chapter of my book and hopefully will be finished this evening with this chapter. I look forward to editing it and making it the best it can be before sending it to the editor. I will also be working on my notes for my addictions book because it will be so large that it will take a minute to complete but it is side work to all the other books I will be writing.

I still have some things to do today but you readers are more important so you get my attention first. I look forward to any feedback on my posts or short stories which will help create better writing.

It is time for me to work my daily list so I wish everyone a “Happy Birthday” if today is your birthday, and to everyone else, I wish for you to have a very awesome evening.

Good morning, everyone! I hope you slept well? Sorry for not posting yesterday but I was finally taking some me time. I checked my sales reports and I have sold a few more books, had some more pages read, and even made a couple audiobook sales. I know things are moving slowly but I anticipate it to get better over time. I am trying to get my sales campaigns ready and some ads, but it will come.

I have been up all night with a girl friend hanging out and we planned our vacation for October with our significant others and we just didn’t get tired enough to go to bed. I sat here watching movies while I finished off chapter nine of Joshua and should be able to get chapter ten done tonight. We have a full day of stuff to do and we will take a nap when we get home.

I am getting more excited about Joshua the closer to the end I get. I look forward to editing it and then sending it to the editor to get reviewed. It will be fun to publish it and get it out to everyone. I also did something I said I would never do and that is getting a tattoo. lol. I always said that if I ever got one it would be a great white shark and that is exactly what I am getting. I have gotten it started but I can only get so much done at a time since I have nerve damage in my extremities.

It is starting to look really good and like it is eating its way out of my skin. It is on the side of my calf and looks cool when I flex muscles in my leg because the shark moves. Well, it is time to get the coffee started before waking the guys up. I will post a picture of my tattoo when it gets completed and will keep everyone posted on my book progress.

To everyone with a birthday today, “Happy Birthday”, and to everyone else, have a happy Monday and I will talk soon. Have a great day!

I woke up this morning ready to start my day and am excited about fixing our house so we can move in. We visited Lowes yesterday and got all the wire, a breaker box, and junction boxes. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to write yesterday have been paying bills for the last few days and now I’m back on schedule. Thank you to everyone who is following me and please leave comments on my writing so that I can be a better writer. I’m looking for an editor currently to edit my first book for publishing. I am very excited and cant wait to hold my first book in my hands. I also hope that my books will help those facing the same struggles I did. Well, let me go get the next short story posted. Have a great day everyone and keep following your dreams.
