Updates & Camp NaNo!

Posted by on June 27, 2016

Greetings fellow adventurers!

Before we dive into updates and all, have you nominated the best of the best in fantasy?

You can find the original post here along with the links to all the other award nomination posts as well. The nominations will close this Friday, July 1st.

And as I write this, Edmond from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is in the lead! Big time.

First thing I did was a put a new cover on it. 😀

So go nominate!!!! AND then we will begin voting Monday, July 4th! 

July?! Can you believe it is July already?

I finally got my planner! If you’ve read my Confessions of a Type A Creative, you will know what I’m referring to. Ha!

And I’ve crashed. After two years of diligent pushing forward and keeping on keeping on, I flat-lined. Brain is mush. I feel a bit anchorless without some sort of major deadline I am scrambling to keep. My routine is shot. Of course, that has something to do with the kiddos being home from school and all. Ha! And I have intentionally taken this break. Notice my eye twitching, yet? Ha!

My little helper. Can you believe this Type A Creative allowed this? Ha!

So what am I doing? Watching Murder, She Wrote. Listening to The Lord of the Rings on audiobook while I paint my daughter’s mural. It has been lovely. And I can already feel the creative spark returning. Sometimes. Ha! You can see more pictures on Instagram.

Which brings me to Camp National Novel Writing Month. In July! I will begin the rewrites for book three. Eep! That’s this Friday! I won’t be posting as much while I rewrite book three.

And then, and then!!! We will be off to Minnesota to visit with my folks! A visit long over due. It’s been at least four years since we’ve been home.

How is your summer going? Any special plans?

    Yay Nano! Are you in a cabin yet? We still have room in ours.

    So glad to hear that you’re filling the tank. I’ve recently discovered scads of audiobooks on YouTube. We just finished Little House on the Prairie, which the kids loved.

      Thanks Kessie! Yes, someone invited me to join their cabin, which started me thinking about it. I’m not sure how much I will get done, but it will be progress no matter what. Thanks for stopping by!
