ST4(Tuesday!) — Seeing Faces

I keep seeing fellow writers out there with Pintrest boards where they post (or rather pin images that remind them of characters in their stories).  And as I see these posts and boards and …  well, I give in now.  I had told ROW80Logocopymyself that I should not start one for the Swan Song series because it was really just another excuse to procrastinate and because I really do NOT need another reason to do Google Searches of cute guys just to say I am trying to get inspired…

But I give in…  mostly because I want a new reason to procrastinate I think.  I really should be working on my nearly nonexistent NaNoWriMo wordcount.

But for those who want to see some of the images that I feel best fit my characters, here are the Pintrest Boards for

ROW80 check in

Well, things are going slower than I hoped.  I’ve picked up steam on Courting the Swan Song for a couple of days, but slacked off this weekend again.  I must have let myself go too long before starting NaNoWriMo, because regaining the daily habit is not working the way it should.

On the upside, I keep having all sorts of inspired thoughts about my characters and the situations they’re in.  I even came up (on Friday) with the perfect ending for the book, one that opens the door for the rest of the series and yet gives the proper opening for the next book in the series that Alanii ‘stars’ in.  It even opens up the fourth book in the series that I’ve been slowly plotting out points for.

How’s that for super yummy awesome?

As far as everything else…  sponsor duties are on track.  Great workout on Thursday, sat at my desk most of Friday….and Saturday… and Sunday (but I played videos games on Sunday instead of trying to work).  Monday I got that evil wisdom tooth pulled and then spent a family day up in Saratoga Springs.  The Boodle spent hours in the Children’s Museum, and hubby and I traded fun observation time.  Then after a delicious late lunch at the Saratoga Tavern where I even tried a beer (not my usual choice of alcohol), we all walked though through Congress Park  (COLD!).  We topped the day off with grocery store turnovers, The Big Bang Theory and quiet time.

So I am really late with this post….   That’s okay, isn’t it?
