     I don't much feel like celebrating right now. My grandma had a stroke. I will catch up with you all later. I hope everyone has blessings in their lives...

Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.
     GOOD NEWS ALL!!! The Augnowrimo Anthology is available on Amazon right now, that includes my short story Royalty.. The link is here. I am so excited about this!
     Also I would like to celebrate that I am finally getting some of my spraypainting metal lawn furniture done. After waiting all year for cooler weather. Soon I will be out of spraypaint tho, and will have to continue when I get more colors. But at least the project is started and is not overwhelming me. Ya know, it is surprisingly easy and takes so little time. What is the use of procrastinating such a little job? Causes more stress than the job takes.
     Anyway, hope you all have many Celebrations this week!
And to all my writer pals- HAPPY WRITING!!

Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.
     Today I want to celebrate roadtrips. They are wonderful to clear out the cobwebs, and see this beautiful country of ours...
     And I seriously want to celebrate GothNoWrimo! I have just discovered it, and have been enjoying the old forums. This is seriously right up my alley, so I am truly looking forward to October. I have already been busy brainstorming the novel I want to write for it. There are some good definitions of gothic writing and different sub-genres of it on this site. I wish it could run all year. I did find a GothNo that runs all year but there are only a few members. Anyone interested in joining and making it a thriving year round community? That site would be GothNoWriYe. Hope to see you there!

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
check them out here.
     Today is the 2 yr anniversary of IWSG. Congrats & thanks Alex J. Cavanaugh!
     Well, I have to admit that I still have a bit of editing for Desdinova to do before it is available in print. But since I am presently otherly occupied this week, I can't work on it yet.
     I finished AugNo, & enjoyed it. I wrote a story for the anthology, and I am excited to get it when it comes out end of month. I worked on a bunch of short stories from my files, and felt relieved to get them worked on. They had been nagging me! I also was able to clearly work out a few more things I want to write, so I felt it was a very good month..
     AND!!! I found --finally really truly found!-- the notes for the script I wanted to do! AWESOME!! Have been looking for it for 2 years! I know I don't have that much stuff, so it was driving me bats.
     I still have 2 WIPs No One Left to Die, and Southern Gothic. I am looking forward to Oct camp to write a Gothic Novel. I have been brainstorming that, and I have to write down notes from last night's session soon as I finish this. Mucho fun! I love how they work out. And I am able to use ideas from files in my WIPs.
     Happy Writing to all my writing friends. Carry on the inky trails!
