Naps, Checkups, Art, and Project Runway

shine-loresAbout a week left on the PIRATE’S ALLEY tour, so a few stops left to enter for those prizes, you guys.

Today, I am at author Marsha A. Moore’s blog talking about how one of you, my cherished readers, kind of unknowingly saved my sanity a year or so ago. Or at least pulled my mule out of the ditch, to use a nice Southern phrase–LOL. (Yep, Roger, I’m talking about you.)

There are several of you who’ve done SO MUCH to bolster my spirits in what has been a rough two years between the day job chaos, the stalker, the two Rainbow Bridge visits and my own inability to ask for help (or deadline extensions) when I need it. So I hope you’ll head over and find out how art has come to play a role in my staying-sane process–AND enter to win the tour prizes, of course!

There is also an official tour stop and PIRATE’S ALLEY review at Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock–thanks for the review! Yep, you can enter for the tour prizes there too. One entry at each tour stop.

After three consecutive 18-hour workdays on the day job, I am off today, so what am I doing for fun? Well, I have a doctor’s appointment at 8 a.m., which sounded like a good idea when I made the appointment six months ago. Now, not so much.

Then I’m going to take a nap and then watch some useless video like a Project Runway marathon. There’s something about bitchy fashion designers that makes me laugh.

And then I’m going to write. Yes! And I’m going to work on an actual book–not a story about a capital campaign or magazine obituaries.

And that makes it a good day. Oh yeah, and it’s my birthday.

I’m old. I shall eat barbecue, drink a glass of moscato (or two), and buy myself some dahlias.

Have a good one!
