I apologize for missing yesterday… Life hit a little harder than I expected yesterday. Nothing major, just a whole lot of little stuff that knocked me into overload. It happens, probably far more often than it should.
So I wanted to go lighter with my blog today to lighten my own mood. Monday night my boyfriend surprised me with a dozen lovely white roses.
It was just for the smile he knew it would ellict in me. He could have gotten red, but I prefer the more unusual. Yeah, I know white isn’t that unusual but it is not what everyone else would want.
I posted that picture on my Instagram with a poem inspired by it. (go look.) Now I can sit in my dining room enjoying the beautiful smell. I think that I will press one of the flowers.
The winner of the drawing I do with my newsletter gave me an interesting challenge. I have a games section in my Tea party that goes out every Friday. If you at least attempt to play with me via email you get entered in a monthly raffle. The winner is given an option, a handwritten poem or a drawing or a digital art personally done by me. (So if you have a favorite poem by me or want me to draw something specific for you… Join my Tea party and play with me.) You can get up to three entries a month. Anywho, the winner for February asked me for something that I am looking forward to drawing. January also chose a drawing.
I am nervous about an event I am doing on the second. I will be setting up a table at a local community fundraiser to sell my resin and jewelry pieces. The event happens on the first Saturday of each month. People gather and set up tables of wares to sell. The community center sells hot dogs to raise funds to stay open. My nerves were already bad, but the co-ordinator did not help. She told me that there was already two selling jewelry supposed to be there. If this actually pulls off I have been thinking about going to a local flea market and doing a table. I have to convince my nerves not to bolt. Wish me luck.
Well, now that I have been all over the map, what do we do? Oh… Well I guess we can make paper hats…. directions here
And off we go again. Cya tomorrow.
So… I was wondering…. Are you a subscriber? The newsletter goes out again Friday! If not… Then go here.
Also… Next week I will have a guest blogger as one of my amazing writer friends asked if she could address y’all. Want to read her book? It’s a really awesome read. She has an energy in her writing that is infectious. You can find her book here.
I think that I will be posting her guest spot on Tuesday. Monday I do not know if be posting a blog entry. It is the day I was blessed fifteen years ago with my Angel. If I can get it up and scheduled before Saturday then I will, but if I cannot then it will be missing. This is just a heads up in case I flounder at all of this.
If this first guest goes well I may be seeing if I can find other amazing authors to come on here to chat with you. 😊 Please do go and check out Tish’s book and show her curtesy when she is here.
Tomorrow my newsletter comes out again. The winner of my monthly drawing will be announced. Are you a subscriber? https://mailchi.mp/1c9329da28c3/pattimouse/
I found a sidebar option for my links. I will be updating the widget over the next week. I may have to change my theme for you to see it right. So happy new year! Expect changes here. 💜
Soul Drops is three poems from completion. So I am planning to have the next volume ready for words. I believe that Soul Drops will be available for purchase by December the first.
My new volume, as you can see will be titled Spilled Verse. The cover design is mine.
Not trying to jinx anything, but I put in an application to be in the winter edition of Creative Rising E-zine. Keep those fingers crossed and I will update you as more info comes in.
So… In the past I have been awful about updating this blog. I am hoping that if I do a bit of a schedule it may help. So I decided to post my plan… Please be patient with me as I may still lapse.
Monday : poems. That will be the day when I share any poetry that I feel like sharing.
Tuesday : teasers. I have a children’s chapter book that I am working on currently, and Serena has her second book in her zombie apocalypse series. This is when I will be sharing teasers and updates on the work we are doing.
Wednesday : webcomics! This is going to be where I discuss webcomics and perhaps other fandoms.
Thursday : Reviews. Both tech and books. I am a geek who reads a lot. I really need to start doing a review segment on here.
Friday : writing helpers. This is where I will be talking about the technical difficulties that come with writing.
I am not scheduling weekends. And I may end up posting random other than the schedule… Cause life. You get it, I am quite sure. Also I may be less accurate to the schedule in November. I am doing the pad challenge and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I don’t know how much extra time for blogging I will have. But I will be posting. Just figure it will be less than I am hoping for.
