Plus my period started so I'm not a happy camper. Stupid cramps.

But the hubby's feeling much better so that's good. And I got this week's novella into POD format, got the cover and blurb done and the Ebook is about 50% finished. Should be able to get it all wrapped up tomorrow and then upload it in the evening.

I also managed to get some writing done. Padma and Jaden have packed up Jaden's stuff, other than the food in her fridge, and Padma is dismayed at how barren Jaden's apartment was. Next chapter they'll arrive at Padma's place and Jaden's going to be dismayed at how tiny it is. If very nicely decorated.

And then it'll be sleep in the same bed time. XD Followed by househunting and eee, I realized on the drive home that I can have the 'looking for apartments / houses together being mistaken for a married couple' thing. AND I can have the old fan favorite of curtain fic.

Yes, I get to write the girls going curtain shopping and arguing about their relationship by arguing about which curtains to get, cheap and disposable or durable and expensive. *squees*

I looooove curtain fic. XD

Goals for tomorrow include, of course, writing more of this so I can get to the curtain fic and sleeping together, exercises (which I did bad on today), making the hubby's delayed birthday dinner (cake is baked but not frosted), and getting this week's novella finished and uploaded everywhere.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

The hubby is doing better!

Between finally getting a good night's sleep last night and starting the steroids and antibiotic this morning, he's almost feeling human. He managed to eat some cookies and have real food for dinner tonight. Tomorrow we're going to have breakfast for dinner and then we'll do his delayed birthday dinner on Thursday. Which is steak, spaetzl, gravy and corn with chocolate cake for dessert. By that point he should be able to manage it just fine.

I got this week's story into preliminary format and created a cover for it. It's focused around a solar eclipse which is kind of awesome with the solar eclipse coming up. I even found a good piece of art that conveys a lot of the feel of the story. Made me happy to find it.

Steps are way low but hey, that's life. I don't much care. I should get my exercises, of course, but I haven't yet today.

I got 2200 words written on the novel. Jaden and Padma will be sharing an apartment because Ravinder, the Date From Hell, was not just a jerk, he was a con artist using a faked relationship with Jaden to convince people to fund his move to Phoenix. Full on cheating them out of tons of money. So yeah, Jaden is going to be staying with Padma, sleeping in her king-size bed, because Padma has no couch for Jaden to sleep on.

Oh, shucks! How terrible. *grin*

Yes, I'm having far too much fun with the story.

Goals for tomorrow include breakfast for dinner, exercises, getting the POD version of this week's story done, writing another chapter of the novel and taking care of the hubby.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

That threw all my plans off

The hubby called me around 1:30 today and asked me to take him to the walk in clinic. Which, if you knew him, would make it very, very clear that he was very, very sick. So I left work, drove home, got him, and then spent a couple of hours there and at the pharmacy.

Official diagnosis, he's got laryngitis and epiglottitis. Which means, basically, that he's lost his voice and the epiglottis is swollen from some sort of infection. Thus pill steroids and antibiotics with probiotic supplements for him for the next couple of weeks. He's not happy but he's glad to know that no, it's not a virus and no, he's not being a wuss.

But then after five days of a fever, he really wasn't being a wuss at all.

That all meant that I got not anywhere near as much as I wanted done at work and I only got 800 or so words written on the novel. Can't be helped. Also didn't get this week's story into preliminary format for publishing. That's annoying but I'll work on it tomorrow.

Goals for tomorrow include getting the story into preliminary format, writing more than 800 words, picking blueberries and maybe, possibly, if I'm REALLY lucky, making a real dinner for the hubby. But I doubt that. His throat will probably take another day or two to stop hurting.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

That went well

The hubby is still very sick so I had tons of time to write today. I got 3900 words written and Jaden has only just discovered that Ravinder has decided that they're engaged. Despite her punching him, walking out on him, tasing him later and getting him arrested. She's about to go nuclear on his ass. Possibly with her boss's assistance. Certainly with Padma's help.

I didn't come anywhere near my step goal but that was because of all the writing and staying home. Not a big deal. I'll live.

Also didn't make chocolate cake because the hubby's throat was so sore that he could barely manage to swallow canned soup. Cake was a non-starter. I'm hoping he feels better tomorrow so we can do his delayed birthday dinner on Tuesday, complete with cake presumably cooked tomorrow night after work.

Sort of a boring day, really, so there's not much to say.

Goals for tomorrow include getting my exercises, writing, taking care of the hubby, starting this week's novella for publishing, and that's about it.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Law Links


"Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."

Few events are more thrilling in a young man's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.

Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his world and send him fleeing to a new and perilous life.




LifePrison


"'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.




Checkmate


"It's all about torture. That's what I didn't understand for a long time. The High Seeker has been seeking out and punishing those of us who wish to show greater mercy to the prisoners than the Code allows. Those of us who question whether it's right to torture prisoners."

The Eternal Dungeon is no longer a prison. It's a battlefield.

Split apart from their closest loves and friends, a small group of prison-workers seek to abolish the use of torture against prisoners in the queendom's royal dungeon. Time is running out, for the deadly High Seeker has already flogged and executed prison-workers who oppose his policies.

Do the reformers have enough time and skill to bring about radical change in the dungeon? Will they be able to overcome their mistrust of one another?

Whee! I'm having so much fun

My new novel is a blast. The girls are off on their date, having sushi together, and then they're going to go off to watch a Lesbian Romcom movie together. Right now, they're making each other blush by calling each other Nagel Girls (Padma) or Godward girls (Jaden).

Just, you know, Padma has dark skin instead of paper white skin and Jaden's a bit fuller at bust and hip than Godward's women usually were. Still a ton of fun finding the artists that best matched my images of the girls in my head. XD

I ran errands today, picking up bite valves for my water bottle, spices, Legos for the hubby, chocolate and grapefruit gummy bears, Lush and then getting the hubby a new pillow since his was dying.

Then I came home, surfed the web a bit, wrote, made dinner, wrote some more and now I'm off to bath time. Because I got a Lush Floating Island and I fully intend to use it. I also returned a bunch of Lush bottles so I got a free fresh face mask. I'll probably try that tomorrow. It's a little late to do it today.

Goals for tomorrow include laundry (2/3's done already), making steak and cake for the hubby's delayed birthday dinner despite his still being sick, writing (hopefully a lot), getting next week's story started for publishing, and that's about it.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Gah, I'm low on word count totals...

...which usually happens when I go on vacation. I get in the habit of not writing much and then have to ramp back up. So, yeah, tomorrow and this weekend will be a ramp up because I'd kind of like to be done with the 3 novels in 3 months challenge.

That said, I am enjoying the current novel. Jaden is cute and causal. Padma is formal and serious and blushes every time Jaden flirts. They're both seriously forceful personalities and man, I might even get a sex scene or two into this story if they go the way I think they are. Whoot! It's been AGES since I got to write sex scenes! :D

I did not get my steps today because my hubby has apparently come down with the cold I had a while back. He's feeling mungy and heading for miserable. Lovely. I was hoping that it would pass him by since it hadn't hit in so long but no luck there.

Not much else happening right now, honestly.

Goals for tomorrow include writing more than 1200 words (like 2500 words or more), getting my steps and exercises, taking care of the hubby (as much as possible given that I'll be at work all day) and getting groceries. Because tomorrow is grocery day.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!
