Haven't posted one of these in awhile...

But I couldn't resist posting this one that my husband shared with me. It definitely made me laugh.

Writing Update

It's been awhile since I did one of these, for good (well, okay, bad) reason:

There's not been much to say.

I really have not had time (or energy) to do any sort of creative writing in months. I get paid to do freelance writing on various topics, with various degrees of personal input, usually very little, but when it comes to creative personal writing everything seems to be on hold.
There's the fanfiction I started in April. I recently received a message asking me to please finish the story so they could know how it ends. Mmm, okay, will try!

There's the novel that I haven't touched in...far too long.

There's the Bones script I finished. And the one I didn't.

There's the pregnancy journal. Now that, I am current on. Well, sorta. Early on I managed daily writing, now I'm on weekly updates.
I hope I have some great things to post soon about writing. We recently purchased a laptop, which has allowed me to quickly start catching up on my paid, non-creative, freelance writing. I'm praying I can get a bit ahead of that (when I don't feel baby-sick) and then be able to dig back in to the rewarding creative work. I miss it, especially the script writing. But, alas, that may be shelved indefinitely. I think my path lays far more realistically with the novel side of things, with two babies on the way.

I heart Christmas Music

I don't care if it's more than 2 months away...Christmas music is always a good idea!

But I do have a very wide range of stuff that I like...

And now I really want to watch this movie:

Links to all the videos, because for me, at least one of them won't show up on a reload.

Background Image

I've got a question in to the lady who designed this blog template, concerning my background image for the main portion of the blog. Hopefully it will be resolved soon. I miss the pretty brown.

And I don't look forward to going through the headache of finding a new look again.

# Pieces Written

Scripts - 3

4 if you count re-writing Sleeping Beauty, Hillbilly-style, in High School

Novels- 1 + .1 + .7

Can I count my 14 or so mentally composted story ideas? No? Drat.

Short Stories - 2

I'll say two officially, so far (one of those still needs to be typed up)... I lost at least 2 of my old ones and I've wiped the slate clean.

Poems- 3...4? 42?

I won awards for 3. After that I lost count.
