The Flower Moon in Full Bloom

So many projects are wrapping up right now, and they’ve bloomed wonderfully. I had a few things happen that I normally would worry about, but instead I paused, took a deep breath, and reminded myself to have faith in the universe. And so far, things are mostly working out 🙂

When I waste my energy on worrying, not only do I not have as many resources available to deal with things when they do go wrong, but when things go right (and they usually do) I’ve thrown away all that time that I could have been spending productively!

Mark Twain captured it best:

“I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

The Flower Moon Begins to Bloom

Hello, everyone! Today is the new moon leading up to the Flower Moon. It’s all about growth, beauty, and potential to me.

Right now, it’s all about my writing. I’m well into the first draft of an ambitious effort: my first full-length Department of Homeworld Security novel. Continue reading “The Flower Moon Begins to Bloom”

The Wind Moon has been Blowing

Hey, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but DANG, things have been happening. This month’s full moon on the 19th is called the Wind Moon. The new moon passed by on the 5th (I also missed Tessa’s Birthday on the 6th—sorry, Tessa!). I am definitely feeling strong winds of change blowing this month.

I’ve been laser focused on my Pets in Space® piece and am so looking forward to sharing more about that with you in the coming months! And I’ve reached the point where I get to start my next new project: Coalition Reckoning. So much is going on at this point in The Department of Homeworld Security that this will be a longer piece—probably double the size of the other novellas! That’s what I’m aiming for, anyway. We’ll see how it shakes out!

While all this writing has been happening, we lost one of our cars unexpectedly. Not like:

Mr. Chandler: “Do you know where the car is?”

Me: “Maybe it’s where all the left socks go…”

But like:

Mechanic: “Your car is dead.”

Us: “NO, IT ISN’T! IT CAN BE SAVED! YOU’RE WRONG!!!” *sobs*

Mechanic: “…”

Okay, maybe Mr. Chandler didn’t sob, but it was super sad and we had to scramble to get another car ASAP. A car that I have fallen completely in love with. Continue reading “The Wind Moon has been Blowing”

Special Edition: Captain Marvel Caturday

I was going to take a break from blogging this weekend, but I just watched Captain Marvel, and ODIN’S BEARD, IT WAS AMAZING!!!

I’ve said that the Venn diagram for me and the target demographic for the Thor: Ragnarok trailer is probably just a circle. That is still true. After watching Captain MarvelIt’s like they could see into my soul…

I’m going to try to write this without any plot spoilers, but I will mention a few story elements, so…
