  1. What do you think of this? It's my new about me page on my website. Do you think it will get people interested in exploring more?

    I am also wondering if the envelope icon works?

      Oh.

      Unfortunately, I don't know how many people have actually visited. It's not many, but....

       

      Oh well. I'll start at zero for now.

      Hmm. This doesn't make sense. It says I've had over 99000 visitors. I don't know that many people!!

      Thanks.

      Lots of people are making their own covers now. :(

      I did recently make several for an author friend (Facebook) who said she and her street team liked them all. I haven't been paid for it yet, but I wasn't going to ask for very much anyway.

      I'm beginning to think I never should have started making book covers or using Wix (website). I obviously don't know what I'm doing. At least not as much before. I don't know.

       

      I'm sorry to be so negative. I should probably just leave every website and forum and blog I've signed up for or joined.

  14. The blast tore through building, shattering glass and throwing numerous loose items around. [PIeces of furniture] of all shapes and sizes were [thrown] around, causing more damage as they struck the inside walls and windows.

  15. Did I mention my mom was in a "minor" car accident Friday? She had minor - if you can call it minor - surgery on her foot today to try and repair at least some of the damage. She'll be stuck on the couch for several weeks, and I'll probably be at her "beck and call" most days.

     

    I'll still do my best to write - and participate here - but I can't be sure of when she'll need me.

     

    Other than that, I have a cold I'm trying to ignore so I can be there for Mom. Dad'll be working a bit but at least he works mostly at home.

    This is a blog post I recently started (just today, actually).

    I'm not sure if I'll keep the blog on Blogspot.com or use the one on Wix.com where my website actually "is".

      Gonna keep my blog at Blogger.com for now. However, I'm only adding to the one on Wix right now.

       

      *fingers crossed* I hope I manage to put what needs to be there.

  19. So a few people have suggested that I write the ending first. The following ending would be for one of my main novellas. I admit, though, it’s not been that high on my list of writing projects lately.

     

    Blue Heart (ending)

     

    Renee stared off into the distance, trying her best to see the glimmering dot of brightness in the obscurity. Aaron once told her seeing only the blackness was seeing the glass half empty.

    Of course, that was before he went and shattered her dreams with his honest replies to her emails.

     

    Never mind that I was too forward. He didn’t have to go and be so blunt about his feelings. He could have been kinder about it. Renee reached up, twisting her long hair around her cold fingers hoping to warm them somehow. She glanced at her watch.

     

    Gasped. It was half past eight and she would be late if she didn’t head for home right away.

    Spinning and heading for the tree against which she propped her bike upon arriving at the place she deemed her Thinking Spot, she grasped the handle bars and threw one leg over the seat, pressing the [pedal] and picking up enough speed to begin pedaling.

     

    Arriving at the back door she locked her bicycle up using the porch and walked inside. Her father watched the news as her mother worked over something in the kitchen. Renee allowed a smile to quirk her lips, hoping it was some kind of dessert. Her brother was probably in his room either doing homework or playing on his Xbox.

     

    Probably the latter, she frowned. Entering the kitchen she retrieved a glass from the cupboard and filled it with water from the pitcher in the fridge. Moving a few steps away so her mother would have access to the [refrigerator] if necessary and proceeding to gulp down about half the contents, she let out a sigh as she lowered her arm.

     

    “Where’ve you been?” Her mother’s question was not unexpected, but Renee felt unprepared to answer just now. If she told her mother she had gone to be alone and cry, she would want to know why. And Renee didn’t yet want to discuss why.

     

    More to come.

    Maybe.

  20. Well, I've made 3-4 book covers for an author friend on Facebook. She's reacted rather enthusiastically, in fact. She's actually asked me to remake the two I (not that I remember it) made for her before, plus a few more. So I've been pretty busy the last couple of days. I have a few more covers to go, but she doesn't appear to be in a hurry. *smile*

     

    My creative juices are flowing. 

     

    GOODNIGHT & GOD BLESS!!

      I started working on a cover for a new author friend. She's in a group I'm in on Facebook. I guess she's not online right now, since I haven't heard anything from her for a bit. I hope she likes what I did. And/or that there won't be many changes to make to the cover if she wants to use it.

       

      Then again, I've considered "pawning her business off" to one of my cover artist friends. They're actually better than me.

  25. Still no progress on my main writing project. 😕 I have more I could add here, but, of course, it's in writing and not on the computer yet.

     

    Tomorrow will probably be fairly busy, but I'm hoping to get some writing and transferring done the next day. But--sigh--no promises. 😕

      GOODY!! I'M BACK! I can't tell you how glad I am to be able to once again post on here.

      I thought for sure I'd get lots of writing done in the last two weeks. But my parents kept me so busy a lot of the time. Whenever I did have opportunities to write, my mind was blank. Or twisted in knots from being so busy/tired. I'm not sure which.
