Happiness = Inspiration

I'm am so overjoyed at the new job I accepted today and all the new techie stuff I will be learning, that I have a new story line for all 3 of the girls. And I still have to finish up the first books for 2 of the girls, and the second book for Jess.

It's so nice to have the girls back and chattering on about their story lines that I don't care about the chaos or the resulting headache. Just thrilled to be so ready to write again.

The mysterious "they" have predicted will have "mind jacks" in the near future where we can plug into our computers and down load our thoughts. Why isn't that available now? I need it now, it would make things much easier.

Another happy note is that at my new job, not only do I get a real office - yes, finally I get to escape Cubeville - it comes with a nice bright window, yellow walls and one bright green wall. I can't wait to move in!

Been a long time!

Wow! It's been since November and here it is mid-January already! I failed NaNoWriMo...didn't hit the 50,000 mark but made great progress on Collie's story.

Job hunting has been consuming me lately. I'll be leaving the current job at the end of the month, and will heave a big sigh of relief at my departure. Good news is there are some leads that show potential and that may leave room for the editing of Jess' books.

I have a list of agents to hit up, and I've decided to use B&N's electronic publishing arm to publish a cookbook that a friend has asked me to put together. So I'll hopefully have some real feedback on that soon.

I've also added an iPad to the mix of electronic devices that I jot notes on. Let me tell you, the iPad is not so good at creating content...the keypad and auto correct tends to get in the way. But, it can be handy when inspiration strikes in the wee hours and you need a fast booting device.

More on Jess, Collie, Merie and the rest of the girls...perhaps next month!
