Save, save, save

And  so I stress the importance of saving one's work frequently.  Thankfully I had done so before O.C. decided to take a nap on my keyboard and thus bringing up a seemingly never ending string of "8"s in my work.

Halloween is almost here and...

Halloween is almost here and I'm loving the ready availability of vampire-themed stuff.  I've got a new Dracula candle, a wicked pair of coffin shape sunglasses, bat and vampire Pez dispensers, Vampire Blood hand sanitizer (Bath and Body Works) and some fun and funky fang jewelry adorning my desk to put me in the mood to write.  I plan to stock up before Halloween is gone, too! 

What about everyone else?  Do you adorn your desk with the theme of what you are writing to put you in the mood?

Hard to believe

It's difficult to believe that fifteen years ago today, I walked down the aisle got married.  It doesn't seem like it has been that long.  Even harder to fathom, thirteen years ago today I woke up at 4 a.m. when my water broke and by dinner time I had given birth to a beautiful baby boy.  He's a teenager today.  So, happy anniversary to my hubby and, as hard to believe as it is,  happy birthday to my 13 year old son . . . the best anniversary present ever.

Love you guys.

Making notes

After a wonderful weekend spent with dear friends at my college homecoming, I find myself full of fresh notes and ideas for a follow up to Blood Thief.  Lots of fun and laughter was just the break I needed :)

Knocking on wood!

O happy (software) day!  I finally managed to find a version of yWriter that works on the laptop.  Most of you know my old computer bit the dust.  The computer a (very dear) friend of mine gave me to use in its place was an older model (but still much appreciated) that wouldn't run yWriter 5.  This past week I found old versions available for download while browsing the net at the library (yay, library!) and now have Blood Thief imported to yWriter for MUCH easier editing.  :::Happy Dances:::
