Good morning everyone. It is thirty-eight degrees outside and I am feeling every bit of it in this back room with the door open to allow the dogs to go outside to potty. I have only been up a few minutes and sitting here with my first cup of coffee. My husband is joining me since he wants to drive me to my doctor's appointment this morning.

We are so happy he has his learner's permit to drive since his driver's license expired while he was locked up back in two- thousand and two. He goes for his road test in November to get his actual license to drive, but he is enjoying the fact that he gets to drive. I am happy because now long trips aren't so hard because he can share the driving time.

Anyway, I will get a lot of things done today once we are out of my doctor's appointment. Before I go while I am drinking my coffee, I am going to work on our bills so that everything is ready for Thursday and I know what bills are going to have to be paid. We got in debt for a few months due to some prescriptions that my insurance wouldn't cover and we had to pay cash for, but we should be back in the black this month and out of debt and back on track.

How is everyone out there doing? I feel okay, but still a little sleepy because of medication. My neck has been hurting and is quite stiff this morning. I have my next procedure for my neck on the thirteenth and my husband's next procedure will be on Thursday. We both have bad backs and my neck as well. The doctor is also treating my pain management for my neuropathy which seems to have gotten worse in my feet.

I am going to stay positive and keep pushing forward. I have four chapters left in my one book to edit and then it will be ready to send to the editor for final editing. It is still on track with the goals of having some books ready for editing on the eighth of November. It will be quiet enough for me today to get some more writing done and having more books to publish.

I hope everyone has a glorious day and a blessed one. I will be sitting here hard at work writing and getting chapters done. For everyone celebrating a birthday today, I wish a very "Happy Birthday" to you as well. I still have seven weeks before mine. Take care everyone.

Morning to all my friends and family old and new. It is eight forty-two this morning here in Dalton, Georgia and a cool forty-four degrees outside. I woke up around eight this morning and just woke my husband up with his hot cup of coffee. We have a recall inspection for our car this morning and then I have to take a friend to the doctor's to get his medication.

Well after picking up the pace a little yesterday I completed most of my check-off list except for three hours of writing. I did manage to get one hour of writing on one book done and after timing myself for an hour, I wrote sixteen hundred and seventy-five words in that hour.

I am still playing with this to figure out what the best way of doing this check-off list in order to complete everything I have listed. There really isn't much on there it is just that some are quick to do and some take time as the writing for instance. It is just playing around with it while still getting writing done.

I am starting to get my head woke up and need to get things together before I leave for the appointment, I wish everyone well this morning and a "Happy Birthday" to everyone celebrating today. Take care.

Brrr! It is a cold one this morning. Good morning to everyone out there in reader land. It is forty-three degrees here this morning and gloomy outside. I have not been up long and on my first cup of coffee which with it being so cold in this room, it doesn't stay hot for long. My husband is at the flea market again this morning with our roommate and I am here with the four-legged babies. Sorry for any typos because I am typing with gloves on my hands to keep them warm.

How is everyone doing on this Sunday morning? I am okay so far but the day is just getting started for me. I want to give an update on my checklist progress that I started yesterday. I got three-quarters of my list done, but I was not able to get to any writing last night. I need to either move quicker through my list or move some writing around to where I get an hour here and there to write to keep things moving forward.

I will have at least four books ready for the editor on the eighth of the November and that makes me happy, but I need to get in gear with my writing to keep my goals up to date. I will need to get at least four to seven books ready in November which shouldn't be a problem if I get in gear with writing them. I can do it if I set my mind to it and my hands, lol.

Today I will be going through my list as quickly as possible to see how much more I can get done in a day. I will need to make this post a little short to get started so I want to wish everyone a blessed day and a "Happy Birthday" to those celebrating one today. Take care.

Good Saturday morning to everyone. It is fifty-one degrees here in Dalton, Georgia and rainy with a side of gloomy. The dogs have been fed and are bundled up on the bed because it is cold back here. They are now quiet and I am allowed to get some work done. My babies are spoiled and always have to have momma's attention.

My husband went with our roommate to the flea market this morning and it gave me some quiet time. I am now on my second cup of coffee and thinking about how my day is going to go. I have ditched my schedule and went to a check-off list in return because it is almost impossible to get things done on a fixed time schedule when I could just get things done and check it off the list.

Today I will get back into writing but I am going to try an experiment with a timer. I will write for an hour on one book and see how many words I can type in an hour and that will give me a better time frame on how many words a book can be. Some of my books will be the length of a novella, and then I will have those that will be novel length.

My sales have not been great but they have been steady and constant which is okay. I am hoping that my sales will pick up during the holidays while I publish more books. I am not trying to get rich, I just want to supplement my income a little enough to live a little more relaxed.

I have two books that already have ten thousand words in them and they are not even close to being in the middle of the book yet. So, I know they will be long enough. I have a book that I am editing which is fifty-one thousand words and when I am done editing it before it goes to the editor it should still be about fifty thousand words.

I am happy writing and love when I can sit down and explore my imagination and be able to put it down on paper. It brings a part of me to life and I can live in my story where I control the outcomes and drama. It is a safe place for me to be when I am allowed to be there.

Well, it is time to get to work on something else and I wish for everyone to have a happy and safe Saturday. To those celebrating a birthday, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more to come. Have a great day everyone and take care.

"Happy Friday!!!" The weekend is here again. How is everyone doing today? I am feeling okay today. I just got some house chores done and now I am ready to sit down and get some things done for me. I have some things, just a couple, to get caught up on and then I will be back on track with my goals.

I went and saw my therapist the other day and my anxiety level was moderately high and she gave me some things to do to bring it back down. She is really pushing the fact that I need to start telling people "No" because it seems to make people want to walk all over me or take advantage of my kindness. I am going to try, but it will be hard.

I made up some lists last night almost like a daily check-off list like I used before which seemed to work instead of setting exact times to do things and I will see how well that works for my situation now. It was good for me in the past and I changed it because I had a husband and needed to make time in my hectic schedule for him.

Now I need to fit everything into my day to keep on track and to make myself accountable for my writing goals. I need to have so many published before the holidays really kick in so that my supplemental income will pick up and we can afford to have a Christmas this year. My sales are not that big right now but they are constant.

I have begun working on my second nonfictional book that is the second book in the "How I Survived" series. I am considering making a companion book to it as well which will have quizzes and worksheets in it. What do you think? I am looking forward to seeing how that book will come out. I know that it will be full of information that everyone can learn from.

My other books are moving right along and I am finding happiness while writing them. One of them is my absolute favorite because I get lost in the story. Most of my books are like that, but this one, in particular, catches my attention.

Well, it is time for me to get things going if I want to catch some things up and stay on target with my goals. I hope everyone is having a glorious Friday and a very "Happy Birthday" to everyone who is turning another year older today. Take care.

Good morning world! How are you? I am okay this morning and finally waking up while still drinking my first cup of coffee. I even got up before my alarm went off this morning. I went to bed last night right after dinner because everything from the waist down was hurting so bad that I couldn't sit still. I took my medication and a pain pill and laid down in bed with my dogs and fell asleep. I think I only woke up once during the night for the bathroom.

Everyone left late last night heading for Florida to take care of some things since my friend's mother passed. They are going to finalize some things down there and should be home tonight. His father is here with us to look after. I just took care of him this morning and got his set up with whatever he needed before coming back here to write this post.

Once I am finished here, I will be cleaning the house up and taking care of all the dogs before doing some more writing and going along with my schedule. I have some cleaning of my bedroom but it is simple to make the bed and sweep and mop. I look forward to today and writing my stories. My husband is laying in the bed still but has had a cup of coffee with me while watching the little dogs act stupid this morning.

I have a little more editing to do on one book and then it will be ready to send to the editor before publishing. I will be picking out the next five book covers around the seventh of the month and having them ready for this set of books to publish. It is exciting to know that I will have more book published and up on Amazon.

I still have plenty of books to write which should keep me busy all the way up until May of next year. I anticipate having approximately forty books published by Summer of next year and being in our new home. My husband and I have been talking about what plans we want for the future and how we are going to go about getting them accomplished.

I am not trying to get rich with my writing, but it would be nice to have it supplement our income since we live on so little money every month. The majority of our money goes on bills and leaves us hardly any free money for us, but I am okay with that as long as the bills are paid.

Well, I need to get going on today's work and keeping up with my schedule. I hope everyone has a prosperous and blessed day and a "Happy Birthday" to everyone with a birthday today. Take care.

Good morning everyone. "Happy Monday!" It is very cold this morning with it being thirty-five degrees outside. I know it is colder in other places but for me down here in the south, it is downright cold. I'm still a bit sick and feeling like a mucus factory since last night. We had all the dogs in bed with us last night to keep them warm and they made me sweat all night.

I am sitting here in this cold room alone after allowing the dogs to go out to potty and then putting them back in the bedroom where it is warmer. I came in here long enough to write this post and drink a cup of coffee to warm the bones a little. My hands are getting stiff because of the cold so this might be a short post so that I can get back into the warmer room.

I did manage to get some things done yesterday and reached ten-thousand words in y second book which I know will be a long book because I am only dealing with the first murder for now. My other book has hit fifteen-thousand words and I am excited to be possibly finishing them both by the end of this week because they are going to be long and I missed a few days with being sick.

I am also working on a special project for my non-profit to assist the homeless and I just began working on this idea and playing with the idea for now, but it will be a special one I think because it has been running through my mind for a few days nonstop.

I am finally managing to get the bills caught up and getting our finances in place. So, hopefully, I will be sending two books to the editor around the seventh of the month and getting my book covers done. It will be another accomplishment for me and I am very happy about that.

Well, the cold is getting to my hands so I will end this post here, but when the sun comes up and it warms up a little, I will be back out here working on my books. So I want to wish everyone a wonderful day and a "Happy Birthday" to those having one today. Take care.

Check Out These!!


Good morning everyone! It is nine thirty-eight here in Dalton, Georgia and a cold morning. It is forty-one degrees outside but feels like thirty-five. Brrr! I am sitting here wrapped in my blanket at my computer because this room is normally the screened in porch that leads out to the pool and it is not insulated and just closed in with cheap plywood that has cracks everywhere. So, it is cold in here while the door that leads into our bedroom is closed to keep the heat in there.

What makes it so bad outside is that the wind is blowing and causing our windchill to drop lower in temperature. It is time for me to buy gloves, a scarf, and a hat. Or, I could just snuggle up to my husband with my freezing cold hands against his warm skin and stay in bed until it warms up. Bears have the right idea to hibernate in the winter, I just wish humans would catch on, lol.

I published another article last night- http://gamers.media/he-s-the-gamer-in-the-house and it has already had many views on it which makes me feel good to know that people like my writing. I will be posting another one today under their horror category. It will be a short story and will be published around two o'clock this afternoon.

Sorry for any typos this post might have. My fingers are frozen and kind of stiff. But, today is going to be a good day. I am getting writing done which I did some last night and also got some editing done on the finished manuscript. Another two or three days of editing and I will have another book ready for the editor.

I am still working on multiple books at a time and find it to be fun and it breaks up any monotony because the stories are still fresh in my head. "The Battle for Joshua" sat in my head for a year before it was put on to paper. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C6Z52V8. I live in my stories and that is what makes them coping mechanisms for my mental illness.

Well, time to get to work. I wish everyone a blessed Sunday and to those who have a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more. Take care.

Saturday, October 20, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you? I wish I could say that I am good this morning, but I have been sick for the past few days and to the point where my body hurts all over. I am doing good this morning to sit here writing to you all, but I can only lay down for so long and then my body will hurt worse. I have been sneezing, coughing, body aches, stuffed up head, and all in all just don't feel good.

I have stayed away from writing the past few days except I was able to write an article last night for a website and that was it. I could not stand sitting up and feeling achy, so I went back to bed. It has been this crazy weather with it being hot one day and cold the next. Everyone in the house is getting sick. Today, I feel like a mucus factory with my sinuses draining and nose running.

I am going to try and get some things done today to play catch up again because with me being sick I have not been doing any writing the last few days which has put me behind on my goals by a few days. I should have had two of my books completed by the end of this weekend but it seems it will be a few days late, but the two children's books won't take me too long to write either.

I have to force myself to stay up today and get some writing done so that I can play catch up and to update everyone, my free giveaway on one of my books was a success being that I gave away a good number of them and now I need to see what my $0.99 Fetish book will do in sales. I have sold quite a few of them and look forward to the time it comes to writing it's other book the hardcore side. I hope that many of you check out my Amazon page and get your copies of any of my books.

Well, it is that time again where I need to get started with my day being that it will be a long one while I am sick. I hope everyone has an awesome Saturday and for everyone having a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and I want to wish you many more to come. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is now seven o'clock in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia and it is still dark outside. I got up just a few minutes before my alarm went off at six thirty. I am now drinking my first cup of coffee while listening to the crickets outside. The dogs are still sleeping in the bed with my husband who had three teeth taken out yesterday.

I have some goals to accomplish today like finishing the editing of my book that is done and it will be shelved until the first of the month when finances will allow me to send it to the editor. I will also be working on the other books that are in progress and hopefully will have two of them ready for editing by the end of the weekend.

This will leave room for me to get the two children's books done the following week. I have a lot of writing to get done since I have so many outlines done for at least another twenty books. I look forward to getting them out for the world to see.

The doctor raised the dosage of one of my nerve pain medications and it really seems to be helping. My feet are not burning like they were, but they still have shooting pains every so often. We will have to see if it really works with time.

I hear the school buses going done the road already and picking up the children around our neighborhood. Sometimes I miss being in school but every day is a learning experience for me. I enjoy every day when I am not depressed or stressed out. Then, it becomes a whole different ball game.

How are you doing this morning? Is everyone up and getting ready for another day at work? I hope that you have a blessed day at work and for you to not have so much stress or chaos. It is "hump day" which means that the weekend is fast approaching and it is all downhill from here.

Well, time for me to get woke up good so that I can begin my day of writing and editing. I hope that everyone has a good day and is prosperous and a "Happy Birthday" to all those celebrating one today. Take care.

Tuesday, October 16, 2018


Morning to all. It is eight forty-three here in Dalton, Georgia this morning. I tried to get up earlier but I had a rough night last night with my neck hurting enough to give me headaches all night. I am sitting here trying to drink my first cup of coffee and will have to wake up my husband here shortly because he has a dentist appointment this morning.

I looked this morning and I have sold the first ebook of my new book that was published the other day. That makes me happy and I have given away several of my free books which will get my book into the hands of readers. This is all good news and I feel accomplished.

Well, it is about that time for me to get him up and ready to go. I know this post will be short and I apologize. I will write another post when I return home from his appointment. I look forward to today because I will be finished with the editing phase of my vampire book and will be shelving it until the finances allow me to send it to the editor at the beginning of next month.

I will be going back to working on my other books today as well. I am hoping to have two of them finished by the end of the weekend and ready for editing. I will then have two others that I will need to finish which will be done this month plus two children's books. That will give me six books done this month and I will be very proud of that accomplishment.

Well, let me get off here and get ready to go. I hope everyone has an awesome day and a "Happy Birthday" to all those celebrating one today. Take care.

Monday, October 15, 2018


Hello to my friends and family old and new. How are you today? Are we enjoying this awesome Monday? I just got back from the doctor's office and picked up my medication refills. I am feeling a little loopy right now due to an increase in my pain medications because of my neuropathy getting worse. Other than that, I am good so far but it is still early, lol.

My husband is staying close by because when I came home he was on the verge of a panic attack for an unknown reason. I am feeling okay today and not so depressed. Last night, I was able to get two articles written for this one site that I can get paid for.

I am feeling a bit OCD right now because I came into the room where I sit and write and my desk looked like a tornado hit it. I cannot handle things that are not organized. It drives me a little crazy. I still have to sweep my room out and pick up a pile of trash out in the backyard outside the door.

Today, I will be getting some more writing done and finish up the editing on my vampire book so that I can send it to the editor. I have already begun writing the sequel book to the first vampire book. I plan on being ready for publishing next month.

Well, it is time to get things going around here before it gets too late. I hope everyone is having an awesome Monday and I wish a very "Happy Birthday" to everyone celebrating one today. My newest book that was published has gone live on Amazon and today through Friday you can get a free ebook of mine off of Amazon. It is called "The Battle for Joshua" and everyone loves reading it and gives me good reviews about it, so check it out. Take care.


Sunday, October 14, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you this morning? It is eight o'clock here in Dalton, Georgia and very cloudy and overcast outside. Daylight didn't begin coming up until about seven thirty this morning. I went outside for a minute to grab my newspapers and felt a few raindrops fall on my face. It is supposed to rain this morning and I will love it because it makes for better writing mostly because it is relaxing weather.

I have been up since five-thirty this morning and now the movie Halloween is on the television. I have finished my first cup of coffee and moving on to my water now. I am excited because I published another book last night and it is up for sale this morning on Amazon. It will not cater to everyone's niche but I do figure it's sales will be good.

Tomorrow begins a free giveaway on my book, "The Battle for Joshua" and will run until Friday. I look forward to it moving into the hands of readers. I still have a few other books to edit before publishing and a couple more that needs to be finished so that they can be edited. I figure I should have at least five books sent to the editor and published in total for this month.

I am progressing forward and I am very excited about my near future with many books published and many more to be written. I have changed my schedule around to where I will be writing in the evenings so that I can do other things during the day like helping to take care of my roommate/friend's father who is in a hospital bed from a stroke.

Sometimes he and I sit and chat about things and life and laugh together while I take care of him. It is good to see him laugh. I just heard my husband rustled around in the next room. Maybe he will be getting up soon. I have to go clean the house and get things started and check on the father.

I am really feeling good today because of publishing my latest book last night. It makes me feel proud. Well, I have to get going now and wish everyone a good and blessed day. "Happy Birthday" to all those celebrating today. Take care.

Saturday, October 13, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you today? I am doing okay this morning. I slept a little better than the night before but I am okay. It started getting chilly here at night to where everyone is bundled up in our bed at night. All eight dogs are either in our bed or bundled in the blanket on the floor. It feels good during the day and not so hot back here in my room where I am writing this post.

I sat here last night working on one of my shorter books and will be publishing it today up on Amazon. I am excited to have another book publishing which will make four books now. I just finished working on the cover for it last night and because it is a shorter book, the cover was going to be simple enough that I could do it by myself.

Monday will be the first day that a free book promotion is going on for one of my books. "The Battle for Joshua" will begin on Monday with a free ebook giveaway so pick up your copy of it and tell your friends. The promotion will run through Friday and then it goes back to the original price.

My husband just woke up and I gave him his first cup of coffee. He usually sleeps longer than me because I have to get up and get things going for the morning. Plus, I enjoy the peace and quiet while I wake up myself with my coffee. I have some things to do this morning so I will be cutting this post a little short.

I want to wish everyone an awesome Saturday and to everyone celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more. Have a great day everyone and be on the lookout for my new book. Take care.

Wednesday, October 10, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you this morning? I have been up for a little over an hour now and daylight is just peaking with an overcast look and feel outside. My husband has been up pretty much most of the night on puppy patrol because they and their mother are in a laundry basket nice and comfortable and on the bed between my husband and the wall. he had to protect them from all the other dogs who are curious about the noises.

Now that I am up he can go to sleep because I have all the other dogs out here in the room with me, so it is just the mother, puppies, and him in the bedroom together resting. The mother is doing good this morning. She had six puppies but one was stillborn, so there are five healthy puppies with four black girls and one white and tan boy. I love them so much :).

I didn't get much done yesterday with everything going on, but I am ready this morning to finish editing one book and then editing the second one done and then that will be two books ready to go to the editor when the finances allow. I still have three other works in progress that I will get back to writing today and should hopefully have them done sometime next week and ready for their editing.

I should have at least four books ready for the editor by the end of the month if not more. So, be on the lookout for new books being published next month. I am trying to get books out for the holiday season and ready for a whole new year of book writing. I love my passion for writing and it is a pleasure to see my books in a physical form that I can hold in my hand.

I will be keeping my books up on the site for sale should you want to buy a copy that is autographed if you don't want to get a non-autographed copy off of Amazon. I keep copies here at home with me in case someone buys a copy from the site and then I ship it from home to the buyer.

Anyway, it is time to get to work now so that I can remain on schedule and I want to wish everyone an amazing day and a "Happy Birthday" to those celebrating today. Take care and be blessed.

Tuesday, October 9, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you this morning? It is seven in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia and the sky is still dark. I have a couple of things that I would like to share with everyone one being a happy moment and one being a sad moment. First, I want to share that I got to see my dad on Thursday for the first time in twenty years. He got to meet my husband for the first time and I got to meet his new wife, my stepmother for the first time.

We met up with them for dinner as they were passing through town on their travels. They were traveling around seeing all of their kids and family members. My dad still looks the same as he did twenty years ago but a little older. his hair is short and he wears glasses. I love my dad and my stepmother. She is nice and seems to be a good fit for him. She will keep him in line, lol.

Another happy but sad note, our little terrier chihuahua mix is having her puppies but one was born dead, so we had to deal with that but one is still alive and moving around. The mother is doing fine and being such a good mother. We are anxious to see how many she has. She is five years old and this is her second litter which she had five but one died and left us with four. We plan on having her fixed within the next couple of months.

On a sadder note, we lost our roommate's mother yesterday who passed away here at home surrounded by those who loved her. It was a sad day. Please say a prayer for the family. She dealt with so much pain and it was comforting to know that she felt no pain when she took her last breath. My prayers are for her husband who she left behind that he will be strong and comforted to know that she is not in any more pain.

Today will be a busy day for me because I am doing the final edit on one book and then it will be ready for the editor and publishing. Then, I have another that I will begin editing today and should have it done and ready tomorrow. I still have four books in the process of writing and will continue working on them as well.

I am still planning to have several books done and ready for the editor by the end of the month. It is taking me some time to work on my addictions book because there are so many notes and information to sort through, but I am working on it. Most of my books are fictional and I love the storylines to them.

Well, I need to get going so that I may get things finished. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and now it is back to work. Everyone celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more. Take care everyone.

Saturday, October 6, 2018


Morning everyone. How are you? I wish I could say that I am good, but I evidently slept the wrong way last night because my left shoulder is really sore and my neck is hurting again. I also have negative thoughts in my mind that I need to be left alone today so that I don't say things I don't mean. I had a hard time staying asleep last night but somehow I manage to stay in one position last night.

I am sitting here drinking my first cup of coffee and trying to wake up off my medication even though I tried to take it early enough last night and went to bed at a decent time, I am still groggy from it. I am hoping that I can shake all this off today and move forward but my feelings were a little hurt and I need to get over it.

Today, I will be concentrating on editing two of my books so that they will be completed and ready for the editor as soon as money becomes available. Once I finish them and set them aside, I will go back to working on the others that have been started and working towards completing them. I need to have eleven books done by the end of the month to be caught up on my monthly goals, but I know that that might be impossible so, I am shooting for at least seven of them total.

Two of them will be really short because they will be children's books that will teach children the basic things like animals, transportation, etc. They will be early readers which I should have them done this month and will have to get with an illustrator to get the inside pictures done unless I choose to do them myself, but they will be counted in the seven I want to have done this month.

I will just stack books and publish them as the money allows and keep writing. I have plenty of books to write with the outlines already completed and ready to go. I am excited about writing and having my books in the hands of everyone in the world.

Well, I have a few things to do as far as cleaning goes before sitting down to edit some books, so I want to wish everyone a happy and awesome Saturday. To everyone celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and wishing many more for you. Take care.

Friday, October 5, 2018


Good morning everyone. How are you? I am doing pretty good this morning. it is twelve after seven in the morning and daylight is just appearing. My apologies for not posting yesterday because it was an exciting day for me. I got to see my dad for the first time in twenty years face to face. We met him and my new stepmother for dinner as they were passing through town coming from a military reunion in Charleston, SC.

I was very happy to see my dad and we had a good time catching up. He got to meet my husband for the first time which was a good thing and I got to meet my stepmother for the first time. She is really nice and I like her. My dad seems very happy and looks really good for being seventy-two next month.

Today is going back on schedule and I have accomplished getting two of my new books up to ten-thousand words each and another not far behind so I will be getting a lot of writing done today. I will inform everyone that I am going to put a hold on my short stories, for now, to get my books caught up to where they should be as far as my monthly goals are concerned.

I have some editing to do on a couple others to make them ready for the editor and then on to publishing them. I am working as hard as I can to get caught up per my schedule and will need the time to write and edit them. I will still be posting here every morning to give everyone updates, but I have plenty of books to get finished and ready for publishing. I will be wearing my red pens out here for a while as I self-edit them before sending them off to be edited.

Our wedding anniversary is Sunday and we will be celebrating five years which it doesn't seem that long but we are still having fun and enjoying each other's companionship. So, I want to say "I love you, baby! 😙

Well, time to get things going this morning and I want to wish everyone an awesome Friday and to those celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many more to come. Have a great day everyone! Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is almost five thirty in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia. I woke up early and figured while I was up I could go ahead and say good morning to everyone. I am still quite sleepy but I am slowly waking up. I am having my first cup of coffee and doing some stretches. It is just taking me a minute to wake up fully.

I got all my errands ran yesterday and got some things accomplished, but by the time I came home, I went out into the backyard and did some yard work. When I got finished with most of it, I felt so tired it was nap time which was a mistake because I know that when I lay down it would be hours before I got back up. Sure enough, my husband woke me up about six thirty last night and my writing time was over.

I have to find a way to stay awake during the day in order to make my writing goals. I know that I will complete them it is just trying to keep myself awake during the day. I am going to try today to stay awake. I might have to go back to sleep for about an hour this morning since I woke up and hour early, but I wanted to say good morning to all of you, my readers.

I want to wish everyone a blessed day this morning in whatever your endeavors are today. I have the whole week off from doctor's appointments except for seeing my dad on Friday so, I have plenty of time for writing and playing catch up on some things that I missed yesterday.

My goals are my goals and I will stick to them to achieve what I set out to do. My writing is important to me and I am blessed that my husband supports me. Some people think that because I sit at home all day that I do not work, but writing is work and it can be mentally draining and exhausting just like physical labor can make you physically exhausted.

I have not earned a lot from my published books yet, but I am patient and know that it will come, but mainly I write to entertain readers with my stories. I am not in it to get rich, I just want something to help supplement my income. A portion of the royalties will go towards helping the homeless become self-sufficient and get back on their feet.

That too has been my passion for many years, but the funding is slow to come in. So, a percentage of my royalties will help benefit my organization to help them. so, from a different aspect, my writing is also important.

Well, it is getting to be that time, so I will stop here and again wish every an awesome day and for those celebrating a birthday, "Happy Birthday". May everyone be blessed with many more years to come. Take care.

"Happy October!" It is almost Halloween everyone and I can't wait. The time is seven twenty here in Dalton, Georgia and daylight is approaching. I feel pretty good this morning now that I am back on my medication correctly. I am feeling anxious though because I will be seeing my dad in a few days for the first time in many years. I am very happy about that.

We have a few errands to run this morning so this post might be a bit short. I am doing my schedule now and it feels good to be back writing again. I am going to be finishing some books this weekend. I sat down and wrote out my monthly goals for this month and feel that I can accomplish them with no problems.

I should have at least one if not two books going to the editor by the end of this month if the finances hold up. I am trying to get us out of this hole and we are almost there, just a little more to go. My stress is lower this morning than it has been in a long while and my sugar is finally coming under control. It has been less than two-hundred every day now which is good considering that it used to be in the four to a five-hundred range.

Well, I need to get going so that I am not running too late on my schedule. Have an awesome Monday everyone and to everyone celebrating a birthday, "Happy Birthday". Take care.
