Getting Ready for NaNo!

This year I think November will be a cake walk because a craft show I normally do most likely isn't happening.  That means I won't be making jewelry every single day and not writing.  Hot dog!  Instead, September will craziness as I prepare (I think) for a show on October 7th.  I've got lots of jewelry ideas and some Halloween doodads to throw together including something similar to this:

So NaNoWriMo can have November all to its self and I can finish my novel with a smile on my face.  Let's hope life cooperates with the plans...

Doing Good

I'm 55 pages and 2,351 words deep into my haiku horror stories book and am shooting for a nice, round 120 pages.  The more I write (and type) the more certain I am that I will self-pub. 

Right, so now to take a break on that project so I can shift my focus back to the novel.  This Friday I should reach my 5K goal and I couldn't be happier. 

Since the Dover contest isn't over yet and they've okayed multiple entries, I'm also working on a little skeleton sign with an original poem. 

On a serious note, a writer friend of mine could seriously need help and positive energies/prayers/virtual hugs right now.  His wife is battling cancer.  You can read his story here and if you can help by ordering his book, that would be 100 kinds of incredible.

To Self-Pub or Not Self-Pub...I Have No Idea!

I've got a collection of horror story "haikus" that I've written and am on the fence about self-publishing.  A dear friend created an amazing cover for it and I just need to take that terrifying leap...but then I read this and once again, I'm not sure.  Perhaps another few days of contemplation will make me decide for sure.
