A long weekend :)

And after going out for a couple of drinks, and something to eat. I’ve felt awful all day. Had to cancel plans to go to our friends. I didn’t think I’d have been up to doing anything tonight, and I was right. Not nice at all.

So, I procrastinate most of the day, read, helped Paul out with a few things about the garden and ponds and felt sorry for myself. It wasn’t helpful for me at all. 😦

Now, I’m feeling a bit better, and at least able to do something. So, what can I do. grins.

I think Chapter 7 of TSK – Early Years is calling me, alas, I need to start editing on TSK – Book 2. At least before I am able to start fast tracking it with TZBF on Scrib’d.

Get the whip out Taliri, I need it. lol

Fly by weeks

Here’s my baby πŸ™‚Β 2014-08-20 19.13.20

I can’t tell you how quick sometimes the weeks are going. I thought my mum was on holiday next week, but no it’s this week! OMG I need more hours in the day. I can’t get everything in!

Take a chill pill and after a beer, I feel better. Wowser. Hubby is on the mega early tomorrow, so I needed something to unwind with, and chill out too, so that I hopefully sleep and can sleep past him getting out of bed.

I had my last Skype session with EJ, just a few thing I wanted to question her on, over the MS for TSK and we worked through them quite quick and I think I’ve managed to tweak them so that everything works just tha tbit better.

The best thing about last night, was hubby in the bedroom with Bobby, while I was on SKype (no dirty minds allowed) and EJ was so excited about how far TSK has come. Hubby called her a creep, but I really don’t think she was, it really has come a long way, and I’m super stoked it’s nearly there.

I’ve spent today while in work, thinking about the query and pitch for it. I’m good with logline’s short synopsis etc, but anything longer. eeek. I’m scared.

So, over the next week, I want to spend some time reading and researching how to write a full synopsis. As in a few pages worth. I did have a book on it, but I leant it out. And as usual, some things you just never get back. I won’t lend any of my books out now for this reason. As good natured as I am, people take the p*** don’t they?

: ) happy hump day all.

Strange week.

So this last couple of weeks has been a bit weird, and very hard on me. Both emotionally and physically.

When you finish a project and can almost say its done, it leaves you with a huge hole in your life. I’ve felt like a part of me is missing.

And with itchy fingers comes a muse who wants to kill me. So, Taliri strikes again, but this time in a very different way. I’ve been exploring a younger version of his life, just after his father, the King dies.

So far in the UG it’s been well received, I tried something different, alternating between Taliri and Sylkx, from Taliri’s First Person POV to Sylkx’s more observing, third. Unfortunately it’s not taken at the moment, but I really want to get a perspective of the 6 chapters till they finally meet before I make my mind up on the decision to move Sylkx to First Person too. I would have to really work hard to maintain his voice, so that him and Taliri don’t sound similar. It’s a WIP. But, I am actually having some fun. And I need a bit of fun after all the editing.

EJ got me my final notes through, and pleased is an understatement. It’s so very good when you get notes back that show how much you’ve improved through the process. πŸ™‚

I’ve been through it from beginning to end once again. (such hard work!) but I love it. And I’ve got one more session booked to talk through things before it goes off to Rogena for the final copy edit.

Can I then take a holiday to Siberia or somewhere? where no one, or no muse can follow me? Pretty please?


On a more personal note. It’s been hard because my husband’s family had a death. It’s a very complicated family on his side, that’s for sure, but I’ve grown to love being a part of him, and who he is. We recently (last year) became friendly with his half brother and partner and their kids. πŸ™‚ (who I love loads by the way) and watching my husband feel and talk about things this weeks been tough, because he isn’t one for talking, and because it’s been hard on people I care lots about.

We also have a few mega big decisions to make, on our future, and none of this is easy and none of this next few months will be either.

Change can be a very good thing, but also it can be heartbreaking. I have all my fingers crossed for some good events.

Siberia is looking all the more a possibility. hehe
