Yes, I have a diary. Except, mine is lime green so I can find it in the dark depths of my handbag. Why do I carry a diary, I hear you ask? I never used to, but lately, I find everyone seems to tell me their important dayes and want me to remind them so they don't forget. So now I have a diary and everyone has their own pen colour━even the animals have their own colours... lucky I have a shit load of different coloured pens at my disposal.
I also find that if I put a timely reminder of when I expect a book to be finished it gives me a kick in the arse to get my good self into gear and get the job done. I can hear you wondering why these other people don't have their own diaries... believe it or not some of them do. I just think it comes down to I'm the reliable one who always remembers and then is there to remind others.
Mind you, I find it a lot easier to write appointments straight down now instead of collecting all the appointment cards and then losing them, so I forget to turn up. I usually pencil everything in and then change it to pen once I'm home. and I can write it a lot neater and in more detail as to what the appointment is for. Even if it's just to remind me that I have a coffee/tea date with someone in Toowoomba.
Of course, I'm still behind on my wordage, but I'm catching up and doing better than I thought I'd be. Mind you, I'd be doing a lot better if I didn't keep having to stop and going off to do other things...
Like today, for instance, I have to take my mother to have her hearing aidstested. It's the maintenance checkup that's done every year. So we have to go all the way to Toowoomba to get them done.
Also, Emily has run out of clothes that fit. So she needs a few more things to tide her over until the end of the pregnancy. I have learned this is not something I'm supposed to chuckle about as she gets very upset about it.
Other than that life is hunky-dory. My back is still a touch on the sore side, but hey, no use complaining about it. I'll catch you all next week and fill you in on what's going on.
Firstly, Shut up Leigh... I can talk about them if I want to... LOL. The cat enclosure is finally finished. So Olli (Oliver) hopefully can't escape. He's enjoying having his freedom to run around the yard. Mind you he's spending most of his time lying in the garden bed. I watered this morning so it's nice and cool. I think he likes spying on the dogs next door. He's only tried to escape about twenty or so times and hasn't found a way out so all is good so far. Though, his new fun game is to catch the garden skinks (lizards) and bring them to me alive as presents. So I have to catch and release them back into the garden.
Even Willow's enjoying being able to be outdoors again. She has stolen Olli's bed, but he doesn't mind as he prefers to sleep on the chairs. I'm hoping now they won't run around the house like crazy and annoy the crap out of me. Also good to have their litter tray outside again. I'm sure Olli has a game where he sees how far he can fling the litter each time he does his business.
Now I just have to concentrate on replacing a few of my plants that died, and putting in the last of my garden beds, but I'll wait for the worst of summer to be over before I even attempt that. If I don't I'll have to pay too much out in water rates to maintain them to keep them alive in the heat.
Okay, so today's random thoughts are really about writing━my writing.
I've just spent the first two weeks when time permitted going through The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses... trying to make sense of what I had written. Some of it I'm like seriously, wtf were you thinking? Even I had no clue where the story was going, but hopefully, now I have that all sorted out. So from now on everything should run more smoothly.
I'm hoping most of the other stories that I already have wordage in aren't in the same way. It would drive me bonkers if I have to rework everything... at least it's given me the chance to delete quite a few overused words... now they won't get picked up during edits and I won't feel as bad... my luck there'll be another word I've overused instead...LOL.
I bought myself a yearly planner to try and keep myself on track. and it will keep me motivated if I can see it all the time. I'll be able to mark things off as I go along.
On another note... I'm off to the doctor today I have to have a Whooping Cough Vaccination needle before Grace is born. I'll get the Dr to check my back out because I woke up yesterday morning and could hardly move.... still bloody sore.
Hair Colour/Type/Length:Black, Just below his ears, and perpetually in a messy state.
Skin colour TypePale
Clothing preferred:Jeans, sneakers, t-shirts. He really doesn’t have any fashion sense unless someone else picks out his clothes.
Mannerisms:Doyle is the type of person who will who tries to keep the peace if he can—though he will hold a grudge if someone pisses him off enough. He's kind of quiet and somewhat withdrawn and keeps his feelings close to his chest. Except when it comes to Michael after book 2 that relationship flies on a whole new level.
Favourite Books:Sherrilyn Kenyon: Dark Hunter Series
Favourite Movie:Lethal Weapon
Notes: One he knows he’s an omega, he takes his role within the pack and coven to heart and helps where he can. His ability to see mating strands/threads/connections goes a long way in helping him resolve issues or set people on the right paths for them to be on. Doyle is the glue that binds everyone together.
