A Peek Inside and Writing Goals

Some of you have been asking for pictures of the inside of the house. With the kids home every day right now isn't the best time for picture taking if you know what I mean. However, there are three rooms that I have good pictures for.
The living room.
Another view so you can see the high ceilings and the great windows. I love the light!
 The dining room, which we always turn into the music room.
More great windows on the other side of the music room.
K's massive plaster mask that she worked 3 months on in 3-D Art.
I don't know why the camera went spotty, but we rearranged the bonus room today. Now it's more open and inviting for games and movies. In fact this morning I went in there and did the Dance Central game on the kinect for my workout. I love when the kids stay up late in the summer because I get to enjoy quiet mornings...until about noon!

Writing Goals:
With my computer dead, and the only option hubby's tiny Toshiba, I might be doing a lot of notebooking it this month. But that will be better than nothing. 

1. Re-write Earth 4 from a different POV. It's going to change the entire focus of the story and I'm excited about that. Then I will almost be finished with my short story anthology.

2. I MUST decide if Search For Knowledge is necessary. It's feeling very blah and I'm wondering if the approach is completely wrong. Maybe I need one chapter to get me from The Magic Wakes to what was planned as the third book in the series. Or, OR!!! Idea explosion in my brain! Keep the good and important parts of SFN and make it a series of short stories to get us to Battle for Sendek...wanders off to see if that would work... 

Oh! And my weight loss is now at 15 pounds. :D

  1. I am absolutely breathless! BeaUUUtiful pictures! I had my nose plastered against the monitor. I might even steal one as my wallpaper.

    It is *hard* getting back into the storyline that once ruled our lives. I didn't realize this when I agreed to do a series. I knew these ppl (characters) so well at one time. When did we stop talking? How did we grow apart? And why am I talking like they're real people?
    Oh yeah. Because, when they start whispering to you again, THEY BECOME REAL PEOPLE again. :)

    1. Thanks! Our style is slowing melding into something solid and I'm very happy with it.

      And all I can say to your second paragraph is AMEN! You live with these people for so long and then they suddenly become strangers. What?? Maybe it's their way of pouting when we take a break to pay attention to those other squatters in our brains?

    1. I guess God really did have a better plan for us when he pulled us away from our lovely NC. Now to dig in and get to work showing Him our gratitude!

      And yes, I love when ideas just pop up like that. It could also be an answer to a prayer because I need to enjoy writing again. By the way I finally started CassaStorm! I only got a chapter in last time I started before the world went crazy. Now that it's back under control I can read again. :D

  4. Lovely pictures! I hope you do okay with notebooking. I do it occasionally and it's super fun but also super hard. :)

    1. Thanks! I hope so too. If I'm lucky it won't be for long because revising hand written pages is NOT fun. Hope you are doing well!

  7. I would feel very comfortable in your home. You have great taste in both color and arrangement. I've been in plenty of homes where the people had no sense of style.

    1. Thanks Michael! I love color period, but especially earth tones. I want warmth and comfort so that my home really does feel like a refuge from the crazy world.
