Let the awesomeness commence

Hello darlings....

I know, I know.... One mustn't be so cheerful on a Monday, but it's a beautiful day in Southeast Texas and I have two days left of my mini vacation, so life is good. :)

This week's news....

older_not_dead is running a promptathon for the month of August so toddle on over and see if anything inspires.

Three more people have completed the Pool Party Challenge. Way to go to katleept, angelus2hot and tellshannon815. Way to go, ladies!!

Speaking of Pool Party, today is the last day to get your fics and graphics in for this year. I'll be doing a round up later on this week.

haldoor has posted the schedule for the weekend challenges for the rest of the year. If you would like to help out in anyway, just drop her a line here

Today is the last day of the month, so don't forget to update your counts. kaige68 will be counting tomorrow morning after taking her puppy out and her first pot of coffee. Let's finish the month with a bang.

Onto the awesomeness....

I'm hoping to put the finishing touches on one of my wips since I owe katleept a lot of words for her contributions to Say What? Friday.

What plans do y'all have in mind for this week?

I technically finished my 8000 word goal for Camp Nano over the weekend although I am not sure if anything I wrote will ever be posted. It was a good challenge to get myself writing again though.

This week I need to start on the Infinite Realities, Infinite Desus 2k17 challenge over on Tumblr. It's an AU challenge featuring Daryl/Jesus from The Walking Dead. I'm not really an AU person so I am hoping it will be good for letting me stretch out of my comfort zone.

I should hit at least 110 hrs today...before I register my win at NaNo camp.
This edit pass is proving a lot more...in depth?...then the previous one...a lot more fleshing out of weak spots. Considering this wip has had less editing overall than books 1 and 2, its not a surprise, but it will mean another grammar/spell check...and maybe one more pass before audio editing/polishing commences. Looks like it'll take me most of August to complete, putting me a book behind the plan...but that's okay. better it be polished then incomplete.
Gonna take me that long to get finances in order anyhow thanks to daughter's computer malfunction :/

You are amazing. I don't think I would have the patience to edit that much. Good luck with the next round of edits.

I don't mind it too much...and since I have to tie all the threads in these books together, it's pretty necessary that I go through all the details. If there's one thing that bugs me (especially in my own stuff) is continuity errors ;)

I can understand that. Continuity errors driving me crazy as well.

No worries. RL happens. Be here next month. August Rush looks to be very interesting.

But of course we can be this happy on a Monday - it's Harry Potter's birthday! And yes, I know, I've further proved that I am an epic dork.

That said, it was beautiful here in southern Nevada this morning as well. Now, I'm not so sure.

Ugh - my count is sad this month. :/ But... on to August, right?

Good luck on your WIPs! I don't even know what to work on this week.

Yes, it is JK's b-day.

Your count is not sad. Better than mine at the moment. But, August will be better. We have interesting fandoms to play in for the Rush.

I think I have one ready to go. I just have to quit procrastinating and post it.

Indeed it is. :D

It is in comparison to what I've been managing lately. Like half of what I normally get. But it's okay. It was a rough month and August will be better! I'm hoping to actually make some icons in August because I've made like 4 graphics all year. Haha.

Awesome - go forth and publish that thing! (I do that too though - finish it and then forget I haven't posted)

I posted it and it made me go over my words for the month, so yippy...lol

YAY to all the Pool Partiers! Here's hoping we have as much fun with August Rush!

My plan for the week is really based around getting graphics together for the Rush, anyway - luckily I only have to do H50 as I have such fantastic helpers who will get the rest! In fact, angelus2hot has already sent me the ones for Being Human (US) so a huge shout out to her for being so on it! ;-)

Other than that, I am not even planning to write - I'm so out of the habit with all this year's goings-on, that I have decided I'll focus only on graphics for the rest of the year, and I'll start afresh on the writing in 2018 - but I do still have a lot of stuff to do at the new house.

With luck our new living room furniture will arrive this weekend, so that will make life easier (I am so over taking turns with the one decent chair in the upstairs living room to watch TV!) and we desperately need to get more of the boxes out of the hallway and the contents where they will live for the foreseeable future...

Yes, we had a good turn out.

August Rush looks interesting this year. It might keep my muse occupied enough that I can get some words since I'm graphic challenged.

Good luck with the unpacking and rearranging.
