Sunday Update - Week 6

Hey, Everybody!

And that's about as awake as I get this morning.  It's 5:06 and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

I made some good progress on getting Blink of an I ready for y'all to read it.  Got through the editor edits and started the read-through.  Made it about 4% in before I remembered that I'd had this awesome epiphany the night before.  So I input the epiphany, which is awesome btw, and then I sent the updated manuscript to my Kindle Fire so I could continue working.  My Kindle Fire had other ideas.  It decided to have a brainfart and tell me I wasn't connected to the WiFi, so it couldn't download.  Checked the WiFi connection and the damn thing was 'Connected' with 'Excellent'.  Tried some things, but it was still being a little snot, so I sent the manuscript to my old Kindle.  And there it was with no damn problems.  Yay!  By then, though, I was so thoroughly irritated, I took the rest of the night off.  Like a whole hour.  Today will be devoted to finishing this thing so I can format it and get it in your hands.

I haven't been reading much lately.  I'm about halfway through Shogun, but getting ready for publication takes precedence.

The woods work is coming along.  In fact, we're almost to the point where we said we'd stop.  I'm trying to decide if I'm going to keep going.  It's great exercise and it gets me away from this computer when I can't fish. 

Let's not talk about fishing, shall we?

We did not win the lottery.

The Olympics are underway and I am watching.  So far, it's been kinda disappointing, but I'm watching.  We have one medal so far - a gold.  I'm not saying in which sport because I don't know if it's been televised yet.  All I know is I was watching the preliminaries yesterday, so maybe they showed it last night after I went to bed. 

Okay, that's about it for my boring life.  Hopefully, next week I'll be more interesting.  ;o)

How'd things go for you last week?


  1. There was a week. It went. I got more junk cleared/rearranged in my office. I slept in this morning--7:40. I didn't get on the computer until after noon. I am now behind on my word count, like I have been all week. LOL

    It's cold outside. So cold, the feral cat who normally disappears during the day is curled up in one of the cat beds I leave on the porch for them.

    I now want a nap. Tomorrow is Monday. The week is going to be better. Why? Because I said so! *shakes mother finger at the Universe*

    Later, tater.

    1. Yay for clearing junk! And sleeping in! You'll make the words up later. Boo for the cold. Poor baby kitty. I'd be curled up in bed, too, if I was that cold.

      Yeah, naps. I'm all for 'em. It is Monday and this week WILL BE better. Because we said so. ;o)

  2. I've been Dad-sitting too much. It drains my brains.
    Way behind in words, and it doesn't help when Mom or my brother call and say, "Can you fix this problem for me?" Me:"Not over the phone, Mom. I'll come over." And to my brother: "Have you even tried to fix it yourself? No? Try first." Getting cranky, here.

    Got more done on the dressmaking book. It requires fewer brains. ;-)

    1. Sorry about your brain-draining duties. I'd be cranky, too. :hugs:

      Yay for getting stuff done, even if it's not where you'd like to be making progress. Here's to a better week for us all.
