It's only Tuesday but it feels like it should be Friday. It's been a busy and rough week. I am sooooooo glad I am off tomorrow, but it won't be a relaxing day. It will be a day for cleaning and prepping the house for the carpet cleaning guy to come next week.YAY for clean carpets but a big bummer that I will have to wait til then to put up the Christmas tree. But, that's okay. The house will be spic and span for the family on Christmas. :)

As far as writing, I am editing the second book in the series I am working on. I worked a little on my break at work but I hope to really dig in tomorrow evening.

And this w/end at work (yes, I work overnight again) I am hoping to not only edit, but add some short stories or something that I have written on my "Pieces of Me" page here. I am hoping you will all check it out when I get things posted.

Have a good rest of the week.

Happy blogging, reading, writing, whatever you do.  :)

I am having a blast customizing my blog. If anybody has suggestions that I need something I am missing, please let me know. AND if said suggestion is difficult, instructions can be helpful. ;)


So, I kinda broke my own rule by not posting on Saturday, cuz I told myself I would try my best to do a daily post.

Well, sorry, I am going to try to make up for it right now.

As some of you know, I work at an Emergency Shelter for Teens. I work w/end overnights, and usually I get ALOT of writing done when I come in here. Well, last night I achieved the 4 Crits I had to do for some CPs and then I actually was able to review, revise and edit the first two chapters of the second book in my "Call" series that I am working on. YAY! GO me.

I had already made my mind up Saturday evening that I would 1). Play with my blog. Do more customizing and I have decided I am going to attempt to do a "Featured Book" Page or something like it where I can review books I have read....I am thinking I like the idea...what do you guys think?  If you have suggetions, or you want me to review YOUR book, I promise I will be nice. I am surrounded by so many awesome authors, it wouldn't be hard, anyways.  But, I digress.

and 2). I was REALLY going to dig in DEEP and get SOOOOO much accomplished on my book. Right? Well....as happens sometimes, life made some decisions for me that I didn't necessarily agree w/.

I came into work a bit early (just after 9:30) for a co-worker who's original plan was to leave early as well. But unfortunately life intervened for her as well....ANNNNNNND

We get a call from another co-worker who is in the van on the way back from the outing to the movie with 8 kiddos. They were RIGHT OUT FRONT of the Shelter on the main very busy road...ANNNNNDDDD

A DRUNK DRIVER hit them. NO JOKE!  Head on, even. So, we all scramble outside, as well as about half the Ft. Worth Police Dept. Two Ambulances, two Fire-trucks.

So, keep in mind I am working overnight. I will be on duty until 7:30am.

Two kids are hurt (MINORLY, no heart attacks please) and so yours truly has to go to the hospital with them because they are "in care."  *sigh*

THANK GOD they are okay, I REALLY DO!  HONEST.  But, we have to go to County Hospital and it ALWAYS sux.  Then, come to find out (I obviously didn't get the memo) it was CAR ACCIDENT SATURDAY in Fort Worth, TX. Wow...I wish someone would have told me.

We got to the hospital (them in ambulance, me in one of our other vans) at about 10:30. There were gurneys, injured folks and cops EVERYWHERE. You would have thought the place was the police station.

Well., X-ray was pretty quick.  Then we waited....and waited....waited and waited some more.  To the tune of 3:00AM.

The Doc came in and said "X-Rays look good. You can go home" ARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH  Seriously?????????  They didn't even give them a PRESCRIPTION. 

Oh, and LET ME ADD!  HE didn't even step FULLY into the Trauma Bay to tell us!

So, therefore I am at *sigh*  It's 4:31 and I am ranting.

Wow, I should write a book, huh?

Black Friday.

SO, I did not go out into the madness and shop. For the last several years, I have done the majority of my shopping online. That seems the best route to the madness of the DFW area, even on a regular basis.

However, I was also vying for the World's Laziest Writer award today, and I didn't do anything.

I have to work overnight tonight so I have to do some crits for some friends and then I WILL accomplish something.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a good Black Friday whether you shopped or not!

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi all. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! We have plenty to be thankful for! Hope you share it well with you and yours. Happy Turkey Day!

Anne McCaffrey dies at 85

SO I am not exactly overjoyed that this is my 2 post, but I just found out that my favorite author of all time, one of the MAJOR reasons I am a writer has passed away at 85. It really saddens me.


My First Post

I would love if this was fantastic, but I am still learning things on here. So, I am hoping there will be more to follow.
