Crazy Craft Sunday – ROW80 Update

2014-11-09 21.34.08It’s short and sweet from me this week, and when I say sweet I mean sweet. I spent the weekend with my adorable nephew who is a little shining star…he is Z-man πŸ™‚

Though I haven’t done a great deal of writing, I have honoured the arts and spent most of the day creating, painting and generally having fun – food for the soul.

MyΒ blogging, writing and editing goals haven’t suffered much. I have 12,260 words in my NaNo bank too, so that’s notΒ half bad!

Before I go, I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Kay, Renee, Amy, Shan Jeniah, Gloria, Ruth and Beth for allowing me to do a guest post/cover reveal for The Fifth Watcher. I really appreciate your support. I’m in the process of writing those posts and I’ll be in touch soon.

I look forward to catching up on your progress.

Until next time.

    1. Thanks, Rachel. I’m just trying to decide which parts to use a excerpts – I want to choose a variety so there’s less repetition πŸ™‚

      And yeah, he’s adorable and he knows it! But then he has so many women vying for his attention I sometimes fear we’ll ruin him for the world…what are we turning him into?!

  1. Sounds Like your day was mellow, even with a bit of writing, you channeled your creative mojo to other things. I’m a little slow at the moment, a few things pop up. πŸ˜›

    1. I’m a little slow too…I haven’t done the rounds, but it’s on my agenda this evening. I hope to learn all about your distractions πŸ˜‰ Here’s a cup of brute strength coffee to give you a little kick!

      1. Thank you, takes a sip from the brute. receives a whiplash from the coffee, starts writing via being dazed and confused state, before passing out on the chair.
        may the creativity flow from thy finger tips to your document.

      2. lol – I didn’t mean to cause such an adverse reaction…the writing is good…the passing out – not so much! I hope creativity flows for you too *hands cup of reduced strength coffee* πŸ˜‰

      3. a good coffee would keep one up until the writing is done. Sometimes a brute of the coffee has an extra kick leftover from previous headbutting of other writers.

      4. I forgot to add that I had to research for certain female character, who knew writing certain female characters is a tough thing to write. and several detours, the upside I learn few new crumbs of info.

      5. Females in general are pretty tough! Some can be extremely difficult to write, especially if they hide themselves and play hard to get πŸ™‚ If you mentioned this research in your post, I’ll look forward to reading it later this evening.

  2. My daughter just said, “That’s an adorable little child.” I agree with her. πŸ™‚ Without a doubt you focused on the more important thing.

    It is my honor to help you, especially since you inspired the new image on my blog! Yes, I actually made the image that tells people I want to help them.

    1. Woo hoo πŸ™‚ That’s awesome. I’m lagging behind trying to prepare my cover reveal text, but will send it to you tomorrow. I’ll go over right now and check out your brand spanking new image! It’s a great support.

      I agree with your daughter too! He is the sweetest little thing – a little ray of sunshine and I love him to pieces πŸ™‚

I'd love to hear from you.
