Thank Goodness It's Friday!

Last Friday was a little bit crazy. Just a teensy tiny bit. I was squished between back to back birthdays for Eldest and Baby Boy. One turned eight, the other turned one.

That is a genuine watermelon cake, by the way, don't you love the realistic colors? The inside even tasted like watermelon!

My Secret Recipe For First Birthday Cake:

- Take 1 watermelon
- Cut into rounds
- Stick in a birthday candle
- Enjoy!

I feel clever!

Writing This Week: I think I'll top 10,000 words since Monday before I go to bed. I've been writing an insane amount, for me. This is probably the kind of schedule a real author who is paid to write keeps.

You know what? All the drama aside, it isn't bad. Writing a little over 2k a day isn't that hard. I can't do it all in one sitting, but I can write, get the house clean, and get to bed at a decent time if I stay focused.

Random Chaos of the Week:
Our older dog, Sage, returned to her previous owners on Thursday. She's 9 years old and wasn't getting along with BB. She's going to a home with no children where she can enjoy the golden years in peace and quiet.

Random Plans for August: I would really like to hold a contest for my birthday on the 16th, but I don't know what to do exactly. Books? Socks? A critique? All of the above?

I'm wonderfully undecided. Keep an eye on the blog for upcoming news.

Also upcoming in August will be part two of the Sustainable Living series, maybe a post about the age of your novel (see comments trail on chapter 42 for a clue), and more rants on editing and writing as I try to clean up Twisted metal, and write Jane Doe.


  1. Isn't it funny how much little ones adore watermelon? My almost 9 month old nephew has no teeth but loves to gum the watermelon and let the juice run all over him.

    Hope the weekend is enjoyable and productive for you!

  2. Love the watermelon cake! Great idea.
