Moved and settling

It's been weeks since I posted here. However, move is completed, although getting settled is still in progress. Cats are adjusting and liking the fact they get to sleep with mom at night. Work commute is longer due to traffic. Work is busy, although not as profitable as I would like.

Writing, getting back on track. Have some deadlines and then will complete several projects promised but not yet delivered to various publishers.

Am hoping to attend my class reunion this year. Have to wait and see.

All in all, my life is still hectic and am hoping it will settle down one day soon.

CoSine & Supernatural Colorado release

Okay, been a long while since I posted to my blog. I've been busy selling my current home and buying a new one. Between paperwork, looking and inspections, this is a crazy time in my life.

Not to mention I was at CoSine, that's the Science Fiction literary convention in Colorado Springs. I was on 6 or 7 panels, which is rather unusual for me. Supernatural Colorado was released and sold at my publishers table.  The total sold was 4. Not bad for a smaller convention.

If spooky stories set in the Colorado interests you, here's the link.

Next week, I'll share my adventures at Superstars.

Still writing

Due to the craziness of my life, I am only writing about 200-300 words a day. While that doesn't seem like much, I am making progress on a short story. It's better than being blocked, which does happen to all writers. The important thing is that I'm writing, despite how busy work is, trying to get my house ready to sell, the final end of my marriage, getting ready to move, an upcoming anthology release, and a writing conference.

Once my life settles down again, I'm hoping to get back to work on my novels that publishers are waiting for.

Crazy Life

Slow writing week. Too much else going on in my life. I've written maybe 600 words total in two days. At least I finished a chapter of my new book and started a short story.

My time at home is limited during the work week. I have several tasks I have to get done every evening. Plus, start to get my house ready to sell and have been watching the real estate market for a possible new one.

CoSine is coming up where the anthology I edited Supernatural Colorado will be released.

Beginning of February is the Superstars Writing Conference.

Going to be hectic for the next few weeks.

Craziness and Writing

I've gotten behind on my blogs. Combination of being in mourning after losing Sammy and discovering my father is not doing well at all. Put on top of that the holidays, which is not always a happy time for everyone, my crazy work schedule, trying to get the house ready to sell and the tail end of a divorce, and well, sometimes things just don't get done.

On the upside, I'm writing again. I have an hour lunch and I've been taking my laptop and working on a one of many novels. I'm pleases with the progress I'm making and am looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds. I do have a basic plot but characters have this bad habit of taking the writer down a path not expected. That's okay because it does make for a better story.

Different Dragons II which I edited has been released. It's the second and last collection of dragon stories set in places not normally done in traditional fantasy. If you enjoyed the first anthology, you'll love the second.

I have a convention in January I'm planning on attending and a writing conference in February. More on those later.

For those of you running around with Christmas shopping and planning family get gatherings, cherish your loved ones. There will come a day when there will be missing members. Let them know how much you love them.

Of Course, Cats go to Heaven

My oldest cat, Sammy, was put to sleep tonight. He was calm and happy to sit in my lap. I asked God to send Little One and Tabitha, who he'd grown up with and had already passed, to meet him. Not only did He send them, but also Dids, who was my cat from years ago and had never met Sammy.

They waited patiently for the formalities to be over and comforted me while I waited. Jesus showed up too, kissing my forehead. When it was over and Sammy had exited his body, the girls greeted him. Christ then took them all with him to heaven.

While I will mourn Sammy's loss, I know he and my other cats are reunited. They'll be playing at Jesus feet until one day, I join them.
