What Are You Working On?

An interesting question, as they all are, from the Opinionated Man.

Why I love, and yet hate, my spiral notebook.

I love my spiral notebook. There are many reasons why. No battery to die. I don’t have to turn it on. And the greatest, even if it breaks you can fix it with tape.

But there are some negatives, like needing a seperate light source, writers cramp, or even getting a pen stuck in the binding.

To my mind nothing compares for begining a book. Character maps and timelines seem to come together much easier if I write them by hand. But I couldn’t imagine living in Mark Twains time, writing manuscripts on unlined paper. Especially not with my chicken scratch.

I am young though, I grew up in the rise of the computer. I’m the kid that taught teachers how to use the internet. So maybe I’m just spoiled, and the stories would’ve come anyways. But I do know the work would be harder without my spiral notebook.

Sara should have another post up this week. Poor woman hasn’t been feeling well the past week, but I’m hoping she can shake it off. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Interesting territory ahead….

So I’ve started a new project in a completely different genre. I’ve decided to take a spin at the survivor horror aspect. Not necessarily zombies, but some catastrophic disease or calamity. Sounds like fun. My friend did give me a badass idea though, if I go zombie apocolypse style.

Sara’s still not satisfied with how her nails look, so she may not put a post up this week. Anyways, I wish you all a beautiful day and a fruitful week!

P.S. Forgot to thank the other two people who bought books. Just pushing for a last edit of the third book, then I’ll be getting them all formatted for the premium catalog. So look for the E-book of the complete collection next month. Going to try and convince Sara to let me use a picture she drew as the cover. Leave comments to help me encourag her

Sara’s Weekly Whatever! Coffee anthem addition!

So I decided to steal the show a bit this week, figure I haven’t put much up in awhile. A lot of that really does have to do with not having my own pc anymore. You never realize how much you miss it until you go to Google something, and you can’t!! But I digress, here’s a little something I wrote after watching Sara stumble around first thing in the morning. I call it my Coffee Anthem.

I haven’t had my coffee, you can go and fuck yourself.

I haven’t had any coffee, you need to speak to someone else!

I can tell already that you just don’t understand.

There is a thing called coffee, and that’s what I demand!

It doesn’t matter if you’re poor, or if you come from wealth.

I don’t care who you are, you can go and fuck yourself.

Whether you are children, even if you’re my own,

You better watch your damned step, or I’ll strip flesh from your bone.

Do not cry, and do not whine, everything will be just fine.

You don’t have anything else to fear, because the coffee is here.

Thank you, thank you /bow. And now for Sara’s Weekly Whatever!

Autumn nails

Three coats of L.A.Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in Live on full length of all nails.

I then painted three coats of Revlon’s Chameleon over the silver leaving a small half moon shape at cuticles. After allowing nails to dry, I used the tip of the nail polish brushes to make small dots for leaves with Sinful Colors nail colors in Last Chance,(dark emerald green) New York Color Long Wearing Nail Enamel in Plumberry Plaza & Broadway Burgundy Frost.

Here’s a closer look.

Game day

Started off with three coats of L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in Live. Then I decided to do a half moon accent at base of cuticles with Pure Ice’s Lucky Charming. Finished today’s gameday look with a diagonal burst of two layers of L.A. Colors Color Craze in Wired.
