     Hello Everyone. I am doing pretty good today. I had a doctor's appointment this morning to get things going to get my custom diabetic shoes and inserts. I will also be scheduling for a podiatrist and urologist for some other problems. Today I found out that my A1C has gone down quite a bit since February and that my liver and kidney functions are normal and working pretty good.
     My mental health status is doing okay. I go see my therapist on Monday and then the psychiatrist for medications on Wednesday. I still have issues with anxiety and sometimes my depression slips through but I have been trying to keep myself busy to try and not notice it.
     For the last few days, I have been working on my notebook that holds me accountable for my book writing. I finally finished it today and now I am ready to keep myself on track. My writing has been going good and pretty much on schedule. I am still looking for beta or proofreaders to assist with my book writing and publishing. Anyone want to help out just leave me a comment with your email address or email me at bpayne43@live.com. My next three books should be ready around the end of the first week of June.
     Well, I need to continue my schedule and move forward today. I wish everyone a blessed and prosperous day and look forward to posting again tomorrow. Take care.

     Good morning to every one of my friends and family. How are we doing this morning? "Happy Monday!" It is the first day of the work week for most everyone and it will be a prosperous one. It will be in the low nineties today and yesterday was tiring. My husband and I moved our mattress to clean under the bed which we do every week and then we shared mowing the backyard so that I can start my gardens for potatoes, watermelon, and jack o lanterns.
     I have a doctors appointment this morning to do the paperwork for custom diabetic shoes. This should be the last cast on my foot since my doctor appointment last week. The ulcer under my big toe is finally healing and I will be glad to be able to walk normally again. It has been a long time since the ulcer popped un in February.
     Well to give you a writing update, I am finishing chapter six and beginning seven in one book, but the first chapter will be finished on the other book. I have some erotic short stories to write for a compilation book. I am also sending off permission letters for another nonfiction book. I am moving forward in a positive way with my writing. I have marked my writing calendar with the goals I plan to achieve.
     It is time for me to get started, but I wish everyone a great day. I will check in later so take care.

     Good afternoon everyone. It is beautiful outside and my garden is growing beautifully. The sun is shining and the wood bees are out in full force. Friday was my husbands birthday and I want to wish him a very happy birthday and welcome to forty-five years old. He is still young at heart just like I am. I am forty-seven but still act and feel like I'm still in my twenties.
     I got a lot of stuff done yesterday and still have quite a bit to do today. I am setting up my garden bed to put my potatoes in the ground today and if I have enough time, my watermelons and pumpkins will be planted today as well. I will be growing them by trellis to save space and when harvested I will be taking them to the flea market to sell for my nonprofit for revenue to assist in feeding and helping more people.
     I have placed my currently published books on this site for sale if you would like an autographed copy and it would be helping our cause to help end homelessness. If you would like to make a donation instead to help out that's fine too.
     I have been working on my books in progress and making very good time on them. The goal is to have all three done the first week of June and then the editing phase will begin. I usually do two personal edits before sending it to the editor. Creating my stories are my passion.
     I create my stories from everyday people and things around me. Even situations inspire me to write. I don't think I could be myself if I couldn't write. My husband knows how important writing is to me and fully supports me. I love him to death and would never trade him for anything. Well, it's that time again for me to get other things done. I wish everyone a blessed night. Take care.

     Good morning my east coast and west coast family and friends. It is a glorious morning here today. The sun is shining and birds chirping. I have the dogs outside playing in the yard while I wake up and enjoy my cup of coffee. I have an appointment this morning to take our car for servicing and a car wash at the dealership. I will be there for a minute so I will be taking my laptop to do some writing while I wait.
     My foot is still in a cast and I have a doctors appointment on Monday to get a referral to have diabetic shoes made for my feet. I also get to see a pulmonologist in June for a strange cough I have had since August of last year. Every doctor I have been too said something different, so I want a lung doctor to find out.
     I have been working on my garden which is starting to grow now and I have five stalks of corn, five lettuce plants, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, cucumbers, and carrots that have already broken ground and the seedlings are about three inches high. I am proud of my little garden and talk to them every morning as I give them something to drink. I will be planting watermelons and pumpkins next month to take to the flea market for charity.
     As far as my writing goes, I will be finishing up the first chapter of nine in one book, the sixth chapter of eleven in another book, and a short story for an erotic book I am working on. I have plenty to do and if everything goes right today those will be completed. I should have all three ready for publishing next month and then I will begin the next book. I have outlines already made for another thirty-nine books to be written and with faith, I will have most if not all of them done this year.
     Well, it is time to get going this morning because I have to stop and vacuum the car out before heading to the dealership. I wish everyone an awesome "Hump Day" and a blessed and prosperous day.

     Good morning, everyone. How are you? I got up a little early but an hour past my alarm. I just finished updating my to-do list for today. I have plenty to do to get everything caught up. I just started laminating my promotional bookmarkers for my author table on Saturday at the local flea market. I will be placing ads and notices everywhere to let everyone locally know that I will be there to come on out and purchase an autographed book. I am so excited.
     I will be making some plaster paper mache masks this week to take also. I look forward to meeting people even though I am an introvert but a percentage of the revenue will go to my charity that assists the homeless in regaining their self-sufficiency. I look forward to helping more people this year than last year. I have to update its website being that due to health problems last year I couldn't get out as much as I would have liked.
     It will be a better year this year and I remain hopeful that everything will work themselves out. I have lots to do and I am even getting ready to do some videos or podcasting about my books as well as possibly one about abuse, trauma, and the recovery to which I am still dealing with certain issues of my past life. I want others to know that you can become a survivor and that they are not alone.
     Well, it is time to get my day started now that the coffee cup is empty and I will attempt to keep you updated every day on what new things this indie author is up too. Have a great day and take care.

Hey everyone! How are we doing today? It is the first day of May and I wonder where the year is going. I just got back from wound care about my diabetic ulcer on under my big toe and I am back in a cast on that foot. The ulcer on the other toe has healed and I can go back to wearing regular shoes, but they are calling about getting me custom inserts or shoes to take the pressure off my feet when I walk.
The ulcer in the cast is not healing like it is supposed too and it is becoming frustrating. I just wish it would heal but now my feet are getting blood to them but the tiny veins are too weak to push the blood out of my toe, so it stays reddish-purple around my big toe. It will heal eventually and I just have to be patient for now.
On to other things, I finished writing thirty-six hundred words last night of chapter six and it is just getting to a really good part. I find it relaxing but exciting when I write and work on my books. I love being a part of the story and living it in my mind as I touch the keyboard.
Today I should be finishing chapter six and beginning chapter seven of my next book the first of a series. I have another book also in progress that the first draft should be done in about two weeks and the editing should begin on both of them about the same time. I have been working very hard lately to get things back to normal and working efficiently and it seems to be working correctly.
It is time for me to finish this post so that I can get to work writing. I wish everyone an awesome and blessed day and don’t forget to check out the site for new short stories and autographed books for purchase. Take care.

“Happy Monday!” It is the beginning of the work week for most everyone and I wish you an awesome day. I was up early this morning trying to keep on my new schedule so that everything will get done. I still have some things that I should have gotten done over the weekend but was unable to. Today will be a good day while I work on my writing and some other things too.
I received my order of the three books I have published yesterday to sell on my site and at the local flea market on the weekends. I will be setting up an author table every weekend to get my name and brand out there. I am very proud to see them in the physical form. The covers look great and now I have the beginning of my personal bookshelf. My husband is having coffee with me this morning and I love spending the time with him.
Well, I just finished making breakfast for everyone and now I am on my own time. My plan is to get a lot of writing done today and hopefully I will be able to start the editing process next Monday. I am looking forward to having the first book in this series done.
I feel pretty good and positive today but the day has only begun and anything can happen. 🙂 My chores are next to be done on my schedule which is just sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the bathrooms. It is pretty easy and I have only scheduled an hour to get it completed before moving on to some more writing.
I will be placing my books on the site today for sale. They will be autographed copies which you can’t get on the Amazon books. I am working on a way to get that done but for now, I will be selling them on this site. I hope that everyone checks them out and gives me feedback on them.
I know this post is kind of short today but I need to get some other things checked and done. I hope that everyone has a wonderful and blessed day.
